Last week we met up with Sarah and Marco for lunch! Marco is such a big boy now! At almost 8 months (last week) he sits up at his high chair and socializes with everyone! The two boyts enjoyed their dining at BJ's!

Big Boy News Around Here!!

At 14 months I thought it was about time Jack got a big boy car seat and left his infant car seat. They would not sell it to me unless he was 20 lbs. They had me put him on the scale and I was looking at the #s go up thinking to myself like the old game show "no whammies, no whammies" and STOP! THANKS to TWO huge meals, a wet diaper, heavy pants and rubber sneakers - Jack made it by 12 ounces!

We went to go visit my almost 94 year old grandpa on Monday who recently had surgery. The first thing he asked me was if he was walking. I told him just small groupings of steps here and there. At that moment I put him on the 1970's shag carpet and in front of our eyes OFF HE WENT! Was fun for my grandpa to be there!

Future Ringo?

My Auntie El gave me her old musical instruments that she used with her students. They were intended to use with all of my students - but now I only have one! He loves the tambourine the most but cannot get the hang of it by himself - for now we will stick with the drums. Thanks Auntie!

Mila was a wonderful sharer!
The blow up bed was the best part of the trip for the babies!

Hmm, I am waiting to go on The Party Boat!!
