3 months

Kyle is 3 months today, so I thought it was time to take some pictures. He is such a happy boy and out of about 90 pictures I got about 3 with him smiling. He is a major talker and talked a lot when we were trying to get him to smile.

He's getting so big!

Lately he has discovered his hands. He looks at them all the time, plays with his fingers and is starting to reach for things.
Can't get over how cute he is! He is such a good baby and loves his brothers and sisters so much. I'm hoping to catch the boys doing their high-pitched baby talk to Kyle in a video clip. It is so cute and Kyle just loves it!

Kyle's new trick

Check out Kyle's new trick! He's growing up so fast which makes me happy and sad all at the same time...but mostly sad.

soccer season begins...

Last weekend was the start of another soccer season. This is the 3rd season for the girls playing with the same coaches. They are awesome. The coaches decided the girls were ready to move up a level and play in the U12 division. Some of the girls on the team, including Abbey are already playing up a division so this definitely makes for a very young team! This move allows them to play 11 players on the field instead of 7 or 8 (I can't remember exactly). They made it clear to the players and the parents that this was going to be a learning season and to not expect wins...just a chance to learn all the positions. Friday night was their first game and they were pretty nervous. As I was watching the girls warm up before the game the other team showed up and they seemed gigantic! They were taller and some of them were "women"!! But as soon as the game started the girls surprised us all. They played so well together as the team and ended up being the dominating team!! It was so exciting to watch them play together. They ended up winning 1-0 with Quincy scoring the goal! It was so exciting!! Kyle was really good during the game until I screamed with excitement...I am going to have to learn how to tone it down this season. I didn't bring my camera to the girls game, I'll definitely remember next game.

Owen and Jake had their games on Saturday morning. Owen has really come a long way. He isn't afraid of getting in there and is really doing a good job. His coach had him play defense most of the game and he did so good. The older these kids get the more fun it gets to watch them play!

Owen is number 8

This is Jake's very first soccer season. He did really well for his first time. For some reason he was running he was being silly, we'll have to work on that. But he is starting our much more aggressive than our other kids did so I think after the excitement of playing soccer wears off he will do really good!

Had to get some video of Kyle with Jake playing in the background...

***I backdated a post on February 7th...check it out!***

Kyle all bundled up at Jacob's soccer practice.
Soccer season officially starts tonight with the girls first game. Owen and Jacob have their first games tomorrow, so let's hope that Kyle stays this happy during the next 2 months of many practices and games!

for valentine's...

Pima Air & Space Museum

We went to Tucson this morning to test drive a car and drove by this museum on the way there. We thought we'd make the most of Tuscon with an impromptu visit to the Pima Air and Space Museum. The problem with not planning this outing was I didn't bring my camera. Thank goodness for cell phones!
