We recently returned from a winter getaway (yes…you actually have to do that up here in Maryland for sanity). We went with John’s family. It was so nice to get away and swim in a “heated” pool. Although I am still not convinced the pools were heated. We went up a day early to have our family time before we met up with his family. John was able to go snowboarding with his dad and Dante and I went to the indoor waterpark. Dante is quite a fish. He loves the water and loves to chase the toys and bubbles, while charming all the people around him with a smile.

John is beginning to coach lacrosse this Sat. starting with tryouts. The season goes for a little over 2 months. He is so excited and Dante and I can’t wait to go to his games.

I am currently still staying at home, but I work part time for a chiropractor doing his marketing, appointments, and software stuff. I know…it is not at all what I would have expected to do. But I actually like it and I am learning so much from it. Not to mention it helps us pay the bills.

It is hard to believe that tomorrow is March. Dante is now 6 months old. He can “razz”, babble more with sounds, eat some food off our plate (soft foods), sit up on his own, clap, and he is even doing better walking while holding our hands. He is such a physical boy. I really think I missed the newborn stage with him because he wanted to be grown up from the beginning. Dante is such a strong, happy boy. John and I are still amazed he is ours.

Our family at the lodge. This was Dante and April’s first time at a ski lodge. They don’t seem to have many in Florida.
