We've not been up to too much new around here. Just chugging away with our routine and activities. In addition to soccer, Jacob has started practicing for baseball this week. The two seasons will overlap for about a month so we will just balance and juggle the games and practices as we can. Jacob has been LOVING soccer and he enjoyed playing Tball so much last year so we thought we would give him the opportunity to play both. I figure once Luke and Sarah are involved as well, we will have to limit one activity per child so we'll take advantage while we can now! We signed him up for coach pitch baseball. They get 3 throws from the coach and if they don't hit those balls they then bring out the tee and they can hit it from there. Sounds like the perfect combination to me! His first game is at the end of the month so stay tuned for pictures from the mighty Coyotes.
Luke has been LOVING his gymnastics class. Luckily no more bribing has been involved as he happily joins his class. He is loving his coach and gets so excited to see her. She's not the friendliest of coaches in my opinion but Luke has taken really well to her. He also is talking so much these days. He has started calling Jacob by name in place of Bubba. And he has been calling Sarah by name in place of Baby! His new favorite word is 'except'. It seems he starts every sentence with it. Sweet boy!
Sweet Sarah is doing great. At seven months she has 4 teeth. She just got the top front two and we are praying for a little break before she starts on the next set! Baby girl sure seems to feel the pain from all this teething, poor thing! She is sitting up so well and loves sitting and playing with her toys. She is eating like a champ. Some of her favorites are sweet potatoes, carrots, pears, apples, avocados, bananas, prunes, peaches and her newest food is baby yogurt. So far so good on the eating front.
Sarah loves being able to sit in the front of the shopping carts. She is one busy girl I must add. She loves discarding her toys over the side of the cart when she is done with them. Makes for a lot of up and down for mommy! But hey, as long as she isn't fussing, we are all happy!
Gotta love the double cart at Sam's. Although all she could focus on was getting Luke's DVD player in her hands.
Jacob got an ant farm for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa. He has been loving watching them build their tunnels.
Sarah LOVES looking in the mirror. She gets the biggest smile when she sees her reflection.
Always gotta get a picture with Grandpa when I see him. Love him dearly! He was in a car accident back in January and is still recovering from his second hip replacement surgery. He is doing great though and continues to live life to it's fullest!
