Our Wesley

This picture is almost a month old now, but it is still one of my favorites of Wes. He is such a happy baby.

An update of Nathan

Here is a recent photo of Nathan. People usually still say he looks like Amy, but we'll let you decide for yourself.

Our Boys...

Originally uploaded by lilkup.
Can you just imagine what things these two will find to get into over the next few years? We are excited about having two boys who will grow up so close in age. They are the best kids ever...but we may be a little biased!

While I have a moment...

I thought I would update whoever is checking out our blog on how the boys are doing. Nathan turns 21 months today...he is almost 2 years old now! He really enjoys coloring these days, especially with these pretty cool bath crayons. He still seems to be enjoying his role as a big brother, although he still is a young toddler who doesn't always like to share Mike and I. Wes will be 3 months old this week. For those readers with small children, i am sure you can relate to this feeling...I feel like we have finally clicked- like I know him and he knows me. So things seem easier now then the first few weeks did. Plus he is learning how to sleep all night...sleep helps. :)
I do want to share with those readers who are not able to see the boys very regularly...I pray that soon God will open up the door for that to change. They are incredible boys and we are eager to share them more with you.
Just to ensure that they are not neglected...I will update you on Sticky and Sadie as well. Sticky is as playful as ever. She has even started to let Nathan play with her. We haven't taught her any new tricks, but I personally think training her to go get a clean diaper at diaper changing time would be awesome. Sadie, for those who know and love her, is still just as "active" as before. Her top speed is still about 2 miles per hour, and that's chasing a cat! Both are enjoying having Nathan to pet them now and they actually don't seem to mind having another little guy in the house.

nothing yet

Just an update on the job search. We are waiting to hear from the church in OH - hopefully sometime this week. We have other churches we can look at. We really liked the church and felt welcomed. We will let you know when we hear one way or another. Through it all, we know God is in control and has more than provided for us during this time.

great trip home

This past weekend, we all traveled up north for my interview and took a trip over to spend a day with family. It was a great trip (lots of driving, but well worth it).

The interview went well and we felt very good about the interaction we had with everyone. We were not the only ones who were brought up for an interview, so we have a week or so to hear what they think. We continue to pray that God's will is done. We know He will put us in the right spot and we trust His timing. We will let you know when we hear something more.

Thanks for your prayers and support.

the job search process continues

The silence on the posts is not due to nothing going on, but rather (what seems like) a lot going on. I have continued to work both my jobs, Amy continues to keep everything else together. Nathan is learning more and more words and has really started to copy things he sees people doing. Wes has started to smile a lot and start to make noises.

This weekend we are going for an interview up in Ohio. We are excited about this opportunity. We will try to post how things go next week. Please pray for our trip and for the interview. We are praying for peace about this decision, on both sides.
