Baby Sharon





As today is Sharon's 10 month birthday, I just have to write a bit about how great she is. She is such a good and happy baby. She has brought such a great spirit into our house-we all just love her to bits. She had her check up yesterday and went from being in the 50th percentile for height and 95th for weight, she slimmed down to 75th for height and 90th for weight. Her head is holding steady at 75th. The doctor said she looked great and healthy. She had to get a couple of shots, but she did OK.
Sharon loves to head up the stairs, and she is pretty fast at it too. She gets so excited when she sees one of the kids, she just thrashes all around in my arms and yells with excitement-she knows action is coming. She gets dragged around so much and never gets her naps at the same time two days in a row, and she is just the best, happiest little baby. We are so glad she is in our family!

Our Future?






Friday night was a fun night. Anna had been going to a mini cheerleading camp at the high school and got to cheer at the game on Friday night. She absolutely loved it. She loved the cheerleaders, their outfits, dances, everything about it-she was in heaven. The girls do this again during basketball season and she can hardly wait!
Then, the next day we had Topher's first official football game. He did a great job on the O-line and held back the defense guy who was bigger than he was. The first play the kids knocked Topher down, but that was the last time. I don't think Tuffy had ever played against someone who actually could push and it surprised him a bit, but then he learned. He did a great job and his team won.
Could this be how we spend our weekends for the next several years-watching Anna do cheerleading and watching Topher play football? Who knows, but it was fun.

Jacob starts school





Today, Jacob started preschool and he did great! I was a little nervous since Jacob thought he was going to his old preschool and he kind of struggles with change, but I was really proud of him and he did super! He goes to a lady's house and there are two other little boys from our ward so it should be a good situation for him. He had to take in his favorite stuffed animal today and he took in his Shrek doll, but he was adamant that it was not a stuffed animal, but a stuffed ogre, so who knows what he said at school. He did tell Topher after picking them up that he would like his attention, so I assume his teacher said that today-it was cute. Another milestone crossed!
