Gonzalez's Heart

Things have been going well for us. Jaden has been gaining weight and that is very good. The Dr's. want him to gain an oz. a day. Monday he weighed 7lbs 10oz and on Thursday he weighed 7lbs 14oz. He is gaining a little more then an oz. a day. That is great. He has a great appetite and is a happy little baby.

Ashley had here dance recital today and was very good. She smiled the entire time and you could tell she was having a great time. Grandpa and grandma both got to come. YEAH!!! Ethan woke up at 5am today and was very tired. Luckily he fell asleep during the show and woke at the end. We then all went out for our after performance tradition.. Our family has gone out to eat after all of our performances since we were little kids.

Dad headed for the cabin now and mom and Sal went to Robyn's house to get the changing table. Tomorrow Sal has to go to the cities first thing in the morning. I do not think I will make it to church. It may be to much for me to handle alone. I am still getting settled to it all and there are so many extra things I have to do and remember with Jaden.

Hope you all have a great weekend. Love to you all, Steph

I just talked to Kurt and he told me of your wonderful day together.

I understand Ethan and Ashley are mean "checker player's".

I look forward to attending Ashley's recital's and Ethan's t-ball this summer.
I too remember the family going to eat after different events, that is always a good time to laugh,and enjoy being together, like Baker's Square in Bloomington! Those have been good things to remember.

I am so proud of our Super Star! It sounds like he is still reading all the right books.

I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Love, Mattie

Way to go AShley!!! She did a great job at the recital. Of course Grandma thinks she was the best and the most beautiful in her class. I'm not biased!! Jaden thought she was the best too.

I got to hold Ethan the last half of the recital as he slept through itfell asleep. He's such an angel when he's sleeping. hehe And then when he is awake... well... no comment. :))

Actually he has such a sweet personality, it is just that it is huge sometimes. When I came today, I was in Stephs bedroom and we put a couple of huge baskets of clean clothing on the bed as we had to find Ashley's dance tights... well Ethan came and grabbed me a hugged me and I threw him in the middle of the mountainous piles of clothing and he was such a cutie pie... so sweet, I wanted to play with him longer but we had to keep our attention on getting Ashley ready for her recital. It is those precious moments that we take in our hearts and hope to retain for ever.

By the way... Sal and Steph.. thanks for the dinner after the recital. It is our turn next!!!

Well, I will attest that their days do not allow them to catch up. They may even be more behind than when they started. I wanted to help fold clothes but it was getting too late. As it was, I didn't get home until 9:30. Had to stop at the store to get a chocolate fix. Sorry Robyn, my will power was fast asleep.

Love ya all, Mom

Hi Guys,
Love the photos. Everybody looks just great! Sounds like things are really falling into place.
We had a very nice and quiet week-end! I can't wait to do it again!
Gotta run......Talk to you soon.

It was sooooo fun to come by and see you last night! I was on cloud nine and chatted poor Mitch's ear off for an hour afterwards. =) He would love to talk to Sal more about driving. Going to the cities for training didn't seem to be a big deal to him. I emailed you about the burts bees, products, prices, etc. It sounds more complicated than it really is. If the prices sound at all decent and you are interested, let me know. I can simplify it for you.
Thanks again for letting me come over and share in the joy! :) I hope you have a great day!!
Love ya,
Steph T
