Time for a family update

It is true that Andy enjoys being outside. He loves yardwork and playing with the boys. Just yesterday we went to a pumpkin patch and picked out pumpkins. Of course, the picked out the biggest ones there.
Andy also coaches Giuseppe's football team. This is his third year of coaching. He has coached soccer, t-ball and football. Next season he will assist as a hockey coach.

Getting the boys where they need to be when they need to be there is Sonia's primary job lately. At three-months post-partum and three months out of work, she has finally gotten a loose schedule in place.

This kid is a true stud. Last weekend he had four touchdowns in his doubleheader. The after his football games he mastered all the drills and plays in his hockey practice.

Giuseppe enjoys school, but mostly he loves the school bus. The other day I told him he could sleep in another 30 minutes if he wanted me to drive him to school. He declined. Instead he jumped in the shower so he could take the bus.

Does a lot of talking now. He puts two - three words together. He loves his weekly playgroup and the friends he has made there. The class is mostly girls with 4 boys, which includes Rocco.

We are happy to announce the Rocco sleeps 8 hours straight at night pretty consistently. He has a routine that sometime he is the only one who is aware of it, but we try to go with it.

He smiles, laughs, grabs our fingers, tries to rollover, watches us as we walk by him. He is doing great.

I'm up at 4 a.m. listening to crying and swearing at you!
