January's gone.

I can't believe February is already here, and with less than two months to go before Anna arrives, I have a feeling things will not be slowing down any time soon. In fact, time will probably fly by even faster!

January was a fun, busy month, mainly because the 26th was Nate's 3rd birthday. We had a great time celebrating. Our families came over Monday the 26th after work and gave Nate his presents. We got him a little cake and some ice cream, and a few of his neighborhood friends came over, played, and ate cake and ice cream with him.

We had the big birthday blowout bash on Super Bowl Sunday. Right after church we headed to Pump It Up, a big place full of moonwalks, inflatable slides, obstacle courses, etc. Many friends and family came to celebrate with Nate on his special day. We had some folks come from out of town and make a special trip just for the occasion. We feel very blessed to have so many friends in our lives that love and support us and our child.

Unfortunately, the party was pretty hectic, and the pictures we took didn't turn out all that great. So, instead of posting a bunch of random pictures, I've decided to show some recent photos of Nate in the last month. He's getting so big! Happy birthday, Nate! We love you!

Rise and shine! Breakfast with a smile.

He loves his new robe.

The next two months are going to be a whirlwind. We are busy preparing for Anna's arrival, but we'll do our best to keep everyone updated. Please keep Melissa and Anna in your prayers these next few weeks. We want to bring home a healthy mommy and baby in March. Nate and I just need our sanity and strength. (I'll probably get hit for that.) Till next time...take care.
