Soccer Fun - Sterling


Sterling had his first soccer game this morning.  I was a little nervous because our first practice was a little rough (he and some of his other teammates cried for a good portion of the first practice).  But surprisingly, the Chargers played very well (especially for 3 year olds). 

037 Sterling almost scored a goal, and several of his teammates did score.  Although, officially the league does not keep score.  Juan is also the COACH!

It’s going to be a fun soccer season!  GO CHARGERS!

Ian – 8 Months!


I missed posting this on the actually date (22nd) Ian hit the 8 month mark.  It’s been so crazy lately with activities, school, etc.

Ian still does not seem too interested in baby food.  Some days he eats about 1/2 jar to a jar.  I’ve tried yogurt, too.  He really likes to feed himself little baby cereal puffs and is still very happy with his milk.  He doesn’t seem to be missing the food so much—he is still a little rolly poley. 


He is almost crawling.  He gets up, rocks, and either dives forward or slides backwards.  It will not be long.  He also gets up and does “pushups”!  I don’t know how he can lift his whole body!

Ian said his first word – MAMA!  Sterling and Avery both said Dada first, so Ian made my heart melt. I love to hear him.  For about the last two weeks, he has been saying, “mama mama mama” over and over again.

No doctor visit this month, so I don’t have any measurements.  He does have two cute little teeth on the bottom that you can see in the picture.

Sterling’s First Day of Preschool


I just dropped Sterling off for his first day of preschool. He was so happy and excited. He did not cry at all. I was so proud of him. Only I shed a few tears in the parking lot.

He was not too excited about carrying his school bag. He said it looks like a purse! This is a bag provided by the preschool that all the kids carry.


I was also glad to meet a family from our church. Victoria is in his class and also had VBS with Sterling.

We were running a little late, but we found his new friends on their blanket. They all meet up at 8:45 a.m. for devotionals and songs with the parents.

Then at 9:00 a.m. they line up and head to the classroom. I know he will have a great time making new friends and learning from his teachers Ms. Carol and Ms. Danielle. Sterling is already “in love” with Ms. Danielle. I love this picture of him. He was so excited. The cute little girl with the yellow bow is Victoria. I can’t wait to hear all about his day!

Getting in the Swing of Things

It seems we are falling into a routine now that Avery has been back at school for over a week now.

I can't believe I have been cooking every night, and we haven't eaten out since our trip to Galveston, except for after church on Sunday. It must be a record for us! I started blogging about our dinners on my recipe blog. You can check it out here.

My house isn't as clean as I would like, and my laundry isn't caught up. I haven't had my friend that was helping me clean come in over 2 months. I miss the laundry not being caught up and a cleaner house, but I am trying to save the money for a new car. We still can't decide exactly what we want. I am just not "in love" with any particular car. And, Juan and I are debating over a minivan vs. SUV. One is more convenient with the kids (and that's what I'm looking for) and definitely cheaper, but Juan doesn't like minivans. Have you tried loading 3 kids all in car seats or boosters (in the Texas heat)?

Our mornings are running a little smoother thanks to closet organizers. The past 2 Sundays, we have picked out outfits for the week and put them in their daily slot. I've seen these in catalogs for $20 and up, but I just made our own from a $7 organizer from Walmart and a little paint pen. I tried to do this last year with Avery, but we didn't keep it up. I bought one from Target this year for Sterling.

Avery and Sterling had dentist appointments this past Wednesday. Everything was great--no cavities for both! Avery currently has 3 teeth that are loose (a bottom tooth and her 2 front teeth).
