7 Quick Takes

1- I love hearing Roxy speak and watching her dance. She's been dancing a lot lately, and sings the songs she remembers after watching Barney. She really likes Barney these days. It used to be Elmo, now it's all about Barney! Here she is dancing with her cousin:

2- We went to the beach with friends last weekend. I would post some pictures, but I don't have any. Why? Well, it was raining all weekend. Can you believe it? We were in front of the beach, but it was wet, windy and cold outside. Roxy still had a good time getting wet in the rain and playing in the pool with daddy and her friends. Lucia and I stayed in our room when it was raining. Too cold and wet for my newborn. Our friend's company was what really made the trip fun, even though we didn't get to enjoy the beach that much.

3- We went to a puppet show with our friend A and her two sons. Roxy liked it and I liked it even better because Lucia slept in the Ergo carrier the whole time. Oh, how I love my Ergo carrier! We've had it since Roxy was born but I never used it with her. Now with two girls, I need to have my hands free more often, so the Ergo comes in very handy.

4- Lucia and her cousin were baptized last month. It was a beautiful ceremony. Here you can see a picture of my baby that day. She was wearing the same baptismal gown Roxy used. And it's the same one my brothers and I used on our baptisms. Very special!

5- I am convincing Gerardo to order one of these Rode IDs since he's been training for a marathon.

6- Yesterday we started to pray the novena to St. Therese of Lisieux who's feast day is on October 1st. St. Therese is one of my favorite saints. I read her "Story of a Soul" a few years ago. I think I might read it again, it was very inspirational to me.

7- Check out this website. It's an organization called "Planned Parenthood aborts African Americans". This is one of their videos, very intresting:
