Baby's first photo

We went last week for the second time to have a 3d 4d Ultrasound. The first time she had her head buried in tissue and placenta so we couldn't get a good peek. We are anxious to see what she looks like, and since she is the finale, we thought we'd take advantage of the latest technology. It was very scary, a little creepy and cool at the same time. She clearly has many features of the boys as babies. Cute chubby cheeks, big lips, Benny's little nose, Rob's chin, and definant girl parts!

Waiting for Baseball...

Everyone at our house is ready for baseball season to begin. For several reasons. The first is that they all live, eat and sleep for playing baseball. Second, one of the reasons we moved here 3 1/2 years ago was because the plan was to build new fields right behind our house. If you look at the picture below, you can see our roof to the right of the stoplight far off in the distance.
Third, Nate finally gets to play this year. He has been waiting for this to come. He loves to play and is clearly the best at his age of any of the boys. We are all amazed at his natural talent for the game. I am excited to walk over and never have to worry about parking again!
I am also excited that I can send them over when they need to be there an hour early to warm-up and I can meet them. I can even run home to make lunch or do whatever. We are going to have 8 games a week plus practices for several months, so the thought of all that is crazy. Oh yeah--plus a new baby girl care for. Poor baseball baby.

My other baby last year. He is so cute.

New Year

Popa & Jake

We spent our new year playing games with my parents. We got really into Blokus. It is a fun tile game, and I enjoyed winning many rounds until Rob got vicious.

We are now enjoying an early church schedule again. I was really getting into 1pm, but I guess it's because I forgot how nice it is to sleep the day away after noon!

Alexander is now a Sunbeam, and he was not thrilled like I thought he would be to go to Primary with his brothers. But man he looked cute!
