UPDATE!

We borrowed Seth's parents camera last night and shot some video of Colton so we could finally update our blog!

I was serious when I said I can't blog without pictures/videos.

January/February has been great and Colton has hit so many milestones.


First, he moved up to the Sunbeam class at church and really had no issues making the transition.

Second, he "graduated" from speech therapy! It was 2 years ago in January that this whole process began and we can't believe how far he's come! The best is hearing him say the word "graduated"...

Third, he got to give the scripture during Primary Sharing Time. We had been working on memorizing the 1st Article of Faith so that was the scripture he did - all by himself! (He started getting nervous about it right before Church though, so I had to promise him some chocolate chips as a reward). He did it though without any help and was so cute! I'm pretty sure that even six months ago I didn't think this would be possible.

I've promised myself that when I'm having a hard day with Colton I'll watch these videos to remind myself just how great he is!

We are still looking for permanent employment but know that it will all happen according to Heavenly Father's timetable and not our own... although there are times when we wish He didn't "trust" us so much!

Our little baby boy is getting bigger... if you've seen me lately you know what I mean. I'll have to borrow the camera again and take a picture. Almost on a daily basis Colton walks up to me and says right to my belly: "Baby Bennett, can you hear me in there?" It still cracks me up! Oh and yeah, we're pretty sure he's going to be named Bennett! Still not sure on a middle name but we've got time.
