Happy Christmas Eve

2 years

Our sweet girl turned 2 today. Just when I want life to start slowing down so that I don't forget a single day, time starts moving at lightening speed. Our little girl is growing up too fast and though it's so fun to see what she's becoming, I wish it were happening slower, much slower. She is the best thing that has happened to us and has been such a blessing for our family. Happy birthday, mama girl.

Our poor tired baby.

For those of you who couldn't understand Astrid's broken up Spanish in our last post, we're pregnant. We're 14 weeks now, so I'm starting to feel much better although I still hate everything I eat after I eat it.
The fall pre-pregnancy was fun. I got into canning (fresh peach jam in the cold winter is so great on warm toast) and made Astrid's Halloween costume, a ladybug. Then I sort of checked out until our Thanksgiving trip to Mexico City with my family. The boys have been living there for almost a year now and I've just been dying to see their apartment and mostly how they live. We did a lot of tourist-y things, like Templo Mayor (ruins in the middle of downtown Mexico City) and Teotihuacan but we also got to go to Acapulco with the boys to one of their radio shows and if you look really hard in the pictures you'll see their guest back up guitarist.
To follow are videos from our trip, including two of the songs the boys performed.
