Jonah 1,2,3,4 October 1, 2012

Jonah is growing up fast – and growing out of his clothes fast too! ¬†Maybe it was all of those extra middle of the night feedings ūüėČ ¬†He is starting to sleep better now but over the last month with all of our transition, sleeping was not his strong suit. ¬†Now we’ve got him in the laundry room and he’s doing great – David calls it the womb room.

So here is our sweet guy:

1 month

2 months

3 months

4 months

hello February 12, 2012

It’s been awhile…quite awhile.

Our computer died.  It has now come back to life, thanks to a good friend.

So here’s a quick update…

Josiah got a big boy bed

Summer happened.  It was lots of fun.

Then came autumn.  We liked that too.

Then came Winter – just as you would expect.

That’s a pretty good summary. ¬†Other things to note, David and I both turned 30, Josiah turned 3, and we moved to a beautiful new house on 10 acres of woods with a creek just out back. ¬†Oh, and we’re having another baby. ¬†He’s due near the beginning of May. ¬†Life is good.


A visit from auntie lisa! May 10, 2011

We loved having auntie Lisa come visit us, here’s some highlights from our time with her:

Pike Place market of course


We loved spending time with you auntie Lisa!  Thank you so much for coming to visit us!


catch-up time

here’s a glimpse of what we’ve been up to since my last posting…

Josiah likes to pretend this is his truck.  He climbs on and drives.

We went on a sabbath retreat with our church and Josiah was ready every morning to go ride his bike.

Josiah saw uncle Josh do this with a real dog.

Josiah does this often - not sure if it is a bus or truck but it is definitely a vehicle and they usually go to PCC.

Josiah in the driver's seat this time. There is usually a lot of switching seats - for fairness of course.

also, wanted to highlight that he sets this all up on his own.

David managed to rig up our bike trailer to Josiah's trike and off he went taking rambo for a ride.

Another version of the vehicle with Josiah and little boy dressed identically.

our new bed!

a trip to the zoo where we spent most of our time visiting...a tractor

building "mousie houses" - this one in the layout of our own home.

whew!  I guess a lot happens in 3 months time, seasons change, children grow, time marches on.


Flashback! February 4, 2011

I came across these photos from last April and couldn’t believe how much Josiah has changed since then. ¬†Just wanted to share it with you.

love that face - this expression is familiar

I sure do love that little guy.
