Update on Life

For those of you who have checked our blog over the last couple of days, or weeks, you will know that we have not been too quick to update it. With all the chaos that comes with the holidays we found ourselves with little extra time for such activities. But here we are, alive and well!

On Christmas Eve Hunter turned 5 months old! I can hardly believe how fast he is growing up! He is now up to a whopping 16.5 lbs! He is such a happy little guy, and we love having him with us!

Hunter is now eating some baby food! It's not much, just a little before bedtime to hopefully help him sleep for longer before he wakes up hungry. It's mostly for my sake, the thought of sleeping through the night is delightful! Right now he is mostly eating rice cereal with either sweet potatoes or squash. So far, so good!

We have a sitter! Hunter has been sitting all on his own for about a month now! When we took him in for his 4 month check up the doctor was so surprised to see him sitting so well, he said that usually happens between 6-7 months... Way to go Hunter!

We had a wonderful Christmas! Even though Hunter is too young to understand and really get into it, he sure made it even more fun for us! Santa must have thought that Hunter has been a good boy with the gift that he got for him... A jeep walker! For Christmas we did mostly the usual... visit family, go bowling with the family (Dario won again, thats 2 years in a row now), look at christmas lights, and open presents. However, we did something this year that is new and is now going to be a yearly tradition! A turkey dinner on Christmas day! We made a turkey and then invited our family to come and enjoy! So whoever was available came and joined in on the fun!

All in all, it was a very Merry Christmas!

Traveling fun!

So alot has happened since we last posted, so we will give you a quick recap of what we have been up to.

Marcos (Dario's brother) got married to Chelsea down in St. George.

The reception

Hunter took his first airplane ride! He did really good too!

Just hangin out at the airport...

We flew to Atlanta to spend Thanksgiving with Hunter's Grandpa Louie.

While we were there we met up with some friends, Michael and Candice.
Here Hunter is watching the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade, he really seemed to like it!
Left to right, Me, Dario, Sarah, Miro, Mia, Marcelo, and Dad. Ok, so we spent Thanksgiving with more than just Dario's dad.
And the flight back home.
Now we are back home trying to fight off a bug that we all seemed to catch somewhere amongst all of our travels. We sure had a fun time though, and even with all the traveling Hunter did a great job!
