We have a lot to be thankful for this year. Obviously, Diego's birth tops the list. It is awesome to have two sons. Jose is employed--hooray! And, we've had some quality family time. Almost everyone in our immediate families has met Diego. Being supported and loved as a family makes us even more thankful. So, we were definitely ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. We started the day with homemade bagels and chai and an unofficial Turkey Trot. Then, we headed to Pueblo for an unseasonably warm day of giving thanks and chowing down. (I forgot my camera, so Jose took some iPhone photos--sorry they're a little fuzzy!)

Two Months

What a day to be two months old...11.11.11. I know, I know, everyone loves it. But, I think my mom probably loves it best--my mom who always lets us know if the time is 11:11 to make a wish or say a prayer.
Anyway, Diego is two months old today! Hooray! He is growing and changing so much. I love the occasional smiles he gives, the sweet openness of his face, and how he sleeps (oh, how he sleeps!). He is a sweet boy. And, he has already shown that he is up for being Griff's little brother. The adorable moment below turned into Griffin practically rolling over Diego. The little guy took it like a champ.

And, I've been trying to give Gigs some special time when Diego is asleep. We finger-painted this week for the first time. As soon as I squirted the paint onto the paper, Griff dipped his pointer finger into it. And...that finger went straight into his mouth. Once we recovered from that, the finger painting was a joyful activity. Everything Griff painted was a dinosaur. Or so he told me.
