We've spent lots of time recently at basketball games. Actually I've spent a lot of time at games and Roman and the kids have come to the ones that are early enough in the day. Our friend Scott's team made it to the Western Mass Finals so we were there in force cheering them on last Saturday. Unfortunately they didn't win, but it was a successful season none the less and hopefully they will be back there and win it next year. Through all of this and the Wii of course, Evan has become very interested in basketball and plays inside when it's cold out and we just got his outdoor hoop back out for the nicer days.
Maggie is talking like crazy! The girl starting "talking" before a year old, but now we really understand what she's saying and she will try to mimic anything we say to her. It's very funny to listen to and so cute to hear her try to pronounce all of the things around her. Her favorite word these days is Ebo (meaning Evan) and she uses it often and loudly. Her second favorite would be blankie because her blanket is second to nothing in her life. It has been her go-to since she was born and I don't see that relationship ending any time soon. She's also very into her slide and horses these days and loves being a cowgirl.
We're getting ready to celebrate Daddy's birthday next week. Yay! On top of that we're very happily celebrating a very successful first month at his new school. He is quickly getting very involved and enjoying the people he works with and the students he's teaching. He'll be one of the coaches for track so we might head out to watch a meet at some point this spring.
All is well around here and I'm hoping 2013 continues to bring great things for us as a family. It's been great so far and we're only three months in. And to think I was always superstitious enough to avoid the number 13. I guess I've learned my lesson this year.
