As the title of this post states, I am back! It's been almost a year since my last post. A lot has happened this past year. I would like to bring y'all up to date.
In June (I think it was June), we decided to put Jon back in school. We chose Linn State Technical Collage (LSTC) as the school and then looked at the programs they offered. He chose aviation mechanics. It's a two year program. About a month before school started we moved into mom and dad K's basement.
On August 16th our baby was born. A beautiful 8lbs 2oz, 20.5" long. We were shocked! We had been expecting a girl. I had painted our changing table purple, the clothes I had brought to the birth clinic were pink, my car seat was pink and brown, all the clothe from NB to 24 months were pink, purple, and flowery! Though we were shocked, we were ecstatic! We had a son! We laughed and laughed and laughed! We brought a beautiful life into this world!
This photo was when we realized we had a boy.
My lovely midwife had a boys outfit that was 3-6 month she gave us so he didn't have to wear pink home!
Look at those chunker cheeks!
He is now 7 and a half months old, has two teeth, is crawling all over the place, pulling up on everything, walking along furniture, and trying to stand on his own. He is a very happy baby!
This is my Arrow Sage Kling! I love this child so much!
About two weeks ago we were able to move out of mom and dad K's basement. We were blessed to find a house closer to Jon's school and work for a great price! The house is old, and need a lot of love! But we are prepared to give it all the love it needs!
I am excited to be blogging again!
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal
