Busy, Busy, Busy

OK, it's been more than a month since I last posted. Maybe because I've been a tish bit busy. :) We're all doing well here, just trying to adjust to our new little addition...OK, so maybe "little" isn't the right word to describe Dawson. He's gotten HUGE really fast! He's been out of 0-3 month clothes for more than a week already. He's MUCH bigger than Camden was. I can't wait until his Dr. appt next week to see how much he's grown. He eats like a little horse too! :)

My parents were here the week after Dawson was born and stayed about 10 days. It was nice to have them here and Camden and Dawson LOVED all the attention they got. All my dad did for 10 days was play "tractors and farm" with Camden. And Camden is STILL playing "tractors and farm" every single day. We're all getting pretty tired of it, but he sure isn't!

We have some MAJOR transitions coming up quickly that I wanted to let everyone know about. I'm not going to take time now to write a lot about it but hopefully in the future I'll have a little bit more time. 1st transition: moving in with Renato's parents for the month of May. 2nd transition: MOVING BACK TO THE STATES IN JUNE! (yes you read that correctly, we're on our way back to the good ol' U S of A) 3rd transition: visiting my family in North Dakota for a few weeks before.... 4th transition: moving down to CO 5th transition: not sure where we'll be exactly living yet, but when we know, we'll let you know.

Yikes, that's a lot of transition. I think I really didn't let myself think about it too much before the birth because I was so focused on the birth....and didn't want to stress myself out. Well, now there's no way NOT to think about it. We've been able to slowly pack stuff up and send bags packed with my parents, our friend Brian who was here, and now my friend Sarah will be here next week and she'll take some bags back for us too. HUGE BLESSINGS!!!

Anyway, God is working mightily in all of this and will share more about His faithfulness in another post. Just for future reference though.....He ROCKS! :)

OK, I know you just showed up on my blog to see pics of the little guy.....so here they are. These pics are already old though....he looks like he's doubled in size since these were taken 2 weeks ago! I'll have newer ones soon!



My parents with Dawson.


My parents with Camden. We have a hard time getting Camden to keep his eyes open, look at the camera, and act "normally" for pictures.....maybe because he's 2! Not sure what my dad's excuse is though! Ha!!

Yay!!! new pics! He is such a little cutie. Cant wait to meet him! Camden was 10 mo. when I met him. We'll see how old Dawson is when that day comes :)

Anyway, keeping you in my prayers as always...especially now with all of the transitioning.
