Updates

It has been almost 9 months since I've posted anything because we had been living with Scott's grandpa. We have recently moved into our own home and have a quick enough internet connection to stay in touch.

We moved in July when Ethan was 20 months and David just 2 months.
So much has happened since then.

1 month after moving Scott found a job drafting (what he went to school for) and was making almost twice what he was after transfering with walmart and taking a pay cut.

After spending months laying in bed using every ounce of energy I had left just being a mom, I made a choice. I know that Caleb will be part of our family for eternity and I will get to raise him after Christ returns, so I will be patient and instead of always having him on the front burner of my mind. I can put him on the back burner and not feel guilty about it. I have to be the 100% best mom I can for the 2 little boys that our Heavenly Father has entrusted to my care.

In November we celebrated Ethan's 2nd birthday with a big family party. And David's first trip to the emergency room.

In January I started working again just 2 days a week at a dental office. It is such a good thing, it gives my kids 2 days a week with other kids and me 2 days a week with adults. I would trade it in a heart beat to stay at home full time again, but the finances will not allow it right now.

In Feb. Scott got laid off from his good job and exactly 2 weeks later had a better job in SLC. Which besides being overjoyed that he had a job, it was outside of Brigham and closer to UofU, where he will continue his schooling.

In May we celebrated David's 1st birthday. I can't believe it came so fast.

With both of us back to work we qualified for a house and on May 15th we signed the papers. On May 18th we found out very unexpectedly that I'm pregnant, due on Jan 16th. We moved in on May 22nd, and it has been great having enough room for the boys to run around we can go outside with out worrying about what David would be getting into. They have a toy room so finally we are not tripping over toys all over the place.

June 20th David took his first steps. Twice he took 3 steps and has not done it since. I think he figured he can crawl faster so what's the point.

I'll post pictures soon!
