Today, Juan and I are celebrating our 7 year wedding anniversary. We celebrated by watching Mad Men on our DVR, eating leftover spaghetti and meatballs, and then Juan had a conference call for work. Don't feel too sorry for us though, we went out last night for a special celebration dinner. We ate at one of our favorite restaurants in Austin, Jeffrey's (http://www.jeffreysofaustin.com/
). It was delicious!
We had to wait for our table for just a minute or two, but that was plenty of time to have a brush with fame. Lance Armstrong came into the restaurant just after us and walked by us as we sat on a bench waiting for our table. I held back and didn't ask for a picture or autograph. :) That's supposedly one of the nice things about Austin for celebrities - they don't get too many "fans" bothering them while they go about their lives. We also sat in a dining room with "Jeffrey", the GM of the restaurant (some woman...), and Jeffrey's parents. It was pretty fun. They even had a personalized menu for us that said, "Happy 7th Anniversary".
Steve and Emily stayed with Ana and Javi. It was very nice of them. I warned them about some of Javi's recent evening antics - he has been waking up in a baaaaaaaaaad mood at 10ish almost every night (especially if he's too tired when he goes to bed, which he is frequently right now since we're cutting out the evening nap). So, last night at 10 he woke up screaming. Poor Emily hadn't heard him like that before. She handled it like a pro and just snuggled with the little dude until we got home. What would we do without Steve & Emily?!?! I really don't know!
Today was a big day here. Ana got her first tooth!! We went to the Remington's house to play with Reid, Sophia and Jacob this morning. Ana found a cool dirtbike toy to chew on. I think that must've been what helped to get that tooth to pop out. Potty talk ahead... skip to the next paragraph if you don' want to hear it --> Poor Ana had a rough weekend in the bathroom department. Baby girl has been on a "p-foods" diet for the past few days (pears, prunes, peaches, peas... good to get things moving). Today her tummy finally let loose and we went through about 150 diapers. Fun fun ;) She feels much better though, so that's what's important.
I snapped this picture of all of my babies (Ringo included) with their dad yesterday. They were relaxing in the evening while watching a baby sign language DVD. I'd just given Ringo a bath and he really wanted to snuggle with everyone. He didn't even mind when Javi started head butting him. He's such a sweet puppy with the babies. He loves going in their play room and just laying on the floor with us. He even "scratches" on the mesh door in the gate so we will let him in. Ana and Javi loooooove him. I swear that Javi tries to say "Ringo". It comes out as "go", but it's whenever Ringo walks by! I might just have to count that as his first word. haha! (Juan's heard it too... it's not my imagination.)
Javi decided to prove just how smart he is by going to get his favorite book when I asked him to. Please ignore my baby talk. :) Isn't he one of the two smartest babies ever?!
I'll try to get a picture of Ana's tooth tomorrow. I also need to post some video of her crawling and pulling up on things. She is such a strong and fast baby!
Oh, we also have Ana and Javi's big 9 month well-check appointment with the doctor tomorrow (a week early)! It will be fun to see how much they have grown since their 6 month appointment. Anyone have any bets on heights/weight?
