summertime

I just love summertime. I love everything about it, and I am so glad it is here. This spring we had visits from both sets of our parents and are looking forward to their visit at the end of August for Gioia's arrival.

Cole is changing so much everyday. You can tell he is almost 2 in all sorts of different ways. I feel like every time he says "MOMMY!" to get my attention something new is going to come out of his mouth. The most recent words are helicopter, microphone, and actually saying Kristen instead of Ti-Ti. He is putting lots of words together that make complete sentences, but usually aren't in the right order. He is getting very clever lately, but mostly in how to disobey better and sneaker than before. Needless to say, we are working through a lot of different things!

Caleb is working very hard for our family. Thankfully, business has picked up for our company but that means he is gone more. It really is bittersweet, but we are very thankful for the work. We know it is only from the Lord.

I am getting big with our little girl. Everything is right on track with her due dates, and she already weighs 2 lbs. I was hoping for another small baby, but maybe that is not what God has for this one! YIKES!!! There is a problem with her kidneys that may resolve itself before birth, but as of now we just know there is something that is not normal. The doctors are monitoring them and we will have a better understanding of what the problem might be the closer we get to delivery. God has given us much grace to not worry about it, but to pray for her. We know God is forming her and trust him for the outcome. Please pray for her if you think about it.

Well, I tried to post some pics but I cant figure out what my computer is doing, so maybe I will be able to post some later! Sorry, they really are cute!
