Surprise, Surprise

After two sonograms trying to figure out what we were having, we FINALLY know. Even though this was the combination we were least prepared for, we're super excited! Now, for names! Any ideas anyone? We've got nothing.

In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

( A little something Danny made at church.)

Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! If you're traveling be safe.

"Gratitude is an essential part of happiness, love, closeness to God, and much more."

Here's a great video to help remind us what Thanksgiving is all about. Enjoy.

I've Won Something

Even though this is from my sister, it means so much. Thank you Arnnette!

Catch Up 3

Ok, hopefully I won't have to do this anymore, for the next few months anyway. Everything is going great with our family and the pregnancy. I'm starting to finally feel a little better, the nausea is still there, but I can at least function. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or that I'm just learning to live with it, either way though, I'm doing a lot more than I was a few weeks ago. Such as house work for starters.

The twins are doing very well. (I still can't believe I'm saying twins.) We went in for the major ultrasound about 2 weeks ago, where they check their major organs, fingers, toes, brain, spine, etc, and everything looks great. They are quite active, which is funny because I hardly feel them yet. The technician said that was totally normal but that within the next few weeks...I'll definitley start to feel them. We should be finding out this Thursday what we will be having. This makes me nervous. For some reason I'm fine with any combination but two girls. This terrifies me for some reason. Maybe because I have a boy and that's all I know. Having one girl would be great but two, that scares me a little bit. If it is two girls though, I'll be fine, but I'm kind of hoping for two boys, or a boy and a girl. We'll see. I have a feeling that since Heavenly Father surprised us with twins he might surprise us with two girls while he's at it. We'll see what He has in store for us. Either way, I'm just content that they're healthy so far. A woman's body is an amazing thing. I wasn't sure I'd be able to do this but here we are five months later and I'm still alive, and so are they.

Danny's doing great! It seems he is starting to talk a little bit more. He's actually trying to repeat what we say, and is saying some new words. He is just so stubborn though! Every time we've had to get him tested for developmental delays, they are always so surprised that he is right on or exceeds expectations in all areas, except speech. Usually kids with a speech delay will show delays in other areas but, it seems our Danny is just being stubborn, and has decided to talk on his own terms. In December he'll be starting a class twice a week. It's kind of like pre-school with a focus on speech therapy. I have a feeling he's going to love it, and hopefully he'll start talking soon.

Cecilio is hanging in there. This semester has proven to be quite a challenge, and my pregnancy hasn't helped either. He is doing really well though, considering. I'm still not sure how he does it, but he does, with a smile, and sense of humor. He's been really great. He's really excited about the babies. I love him so much. Just trying to make it to finals!!

So there's a quick catch up session for you guys. Hopefully I can keep up this the blog for the next few months. I don't like these catch up posts.

To Cry or Not to Cry Over Spilt Soy Milk

While I was checking my email the other day, this is what happened. Of course Danny was really quiet so I went over to find him and was greeted by this:
What does this mean? He actually went into the fridge, got himself a cup, got on the table, and served himself milk! My first reaction was to get upset but he looked so proud of himself. I acted surprised and told him I couldn't believe he did it all by himself. He was so proud of himself for the next few minutes, it was so cute!
Of course, he drank about half of it and was done, but he did it all by himself, that was all that mattered to him.P.S. For any wondering why soy milk? He was suffering from a lot of ear infections about a year ago and it was recommended we remove milk from his diet. It's weird but ever since he's been infection free!!

Danny E La Sua Olive

Danny and his olives. He loves them!!

After eating about a hundred.

How a Two-Year Old Gets in a Truck

And that's how it's done, any questions?

Happy Halloween

On Wednesday (before Halloween) our church had a Halloween Carnival and Danny decided to go as Buzz Light Year. While we were there he found Woody and would not leave him alone. He followed him everywhere! Notice the look on the little boy's face, he's probably thinking, "Who is this kid and why is he stalking me?" Danny really got a kick out of his costume!

Here he is on Halloween day. That day he decided he'd be Superman.

Here's a picture Cecilio's uncle made of Danny flying in the sky. Thanks Luis, this looks awesome!

He's Back

For those of you who may not know, my cousin Clay served a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was called to serve in the Rosario, Argentina mission. He served two years and recently returned in October. We are so proud of him, and the work he was able to do. To read more about his experiences click here.

Here we are anxiously waiting for him.
Yay! We missed you Bubs.

Mom gets first hug of course.

Then Dad.

He looks so good.

We are so happy to have you back home Clay.
