On Tuesday Paul and I went in for our 19 week sonogram and everything looked great! We were so happy to see the baby moving around and the little heart beating. I would put up some pics, but honestly, only the eyes of a mother can even tell much from the pictures! They are not very clear and it's tough to make out features. Oh well...we got spoiled with Sebastian's 3D sonogram - our new doctor doesn't offer that. The best part is that everything is on track and looking good. Enjoy Sebastian's newest escapades!
Last weekend we had the chance to go to the La Leche League's Annual Parenting Conference in Daytona Beach. It was my birthday trip and we had such a wonderful weekend! It was too cool and windy for the beach, but we enjoyed all the activities so much! We attended excellent parenting sessions ranging from potty training, toddlerhood, birthing methods, and Dad support circles. Our favorite sessions by far though were when we got to hear Dr. Sears speak about Attachment Parenting and Vaccinations. Both sessions were so wonderful and informative and inspire us to know that our decisions do not only feel right, but also have much medical and professional research to back us up. It was so neat to be surrounded by so many families and parents that are raising their children how we are. You can learn more about Dr. Sears at their web site http://www.askdrsears.com/. You can search AP and Vaccinations from there as well.

Saturday night's family activities included more drumming and songs, as well as making giant bubbles with fly swatters. The kids were crazy about this!
On Monday Sebastian's lab school class visited a local pumpkin patch. When we arrived he got a pumpkin sticker. This was really his first experience with stickers and wow, did he love it! He kept sticking it on and taking it off and looking at it with this proud face. I had to ask for an extra for later because I knew there would be a melt down when his sticker stopped being sticky... =)The boys from the class sitting on the pumpkins. We didn't even pose them - one sat on a pumpkin and then they all sat down. So cute!
