Quick update

By: Ryan

Watching the fountain

Hey all, sorry for the lack of posts lately. Between the new job, prepping for the new baby, and our other blogging efforts, we have neglected to update this site. We will be returning to our regularly scheduled posting-of-updates soon, but for now I wanted to share a quick update on what's been happening.

First of all, as most of you already know by now, I have a new job! It's the full-time job we've been praying for since moving to Florida and we couldn't be more excited about it. With the new little guy coming along, our desire to buy a house sometime soon, and all that, the job couldn't have come at a better time. It's going great, too, and I'm definitely enjoying it.

Shelsy is doing great with the pregnancy, too. It's a boy, which I'm sure everyone knows by now, but I don't think we ever actually posted here. Very exciting! Still several more months to go, so you'll be hearing more about that soon.

Amber's been learning new stuff every day and surprises us all the time with how much she knows. She's started putting two or three words together to form basic sentences, too. She's a big fan of Disney World, too, and knows that the ball is at Epcot, and that we see fireworks at the castle. She's figured out how to use our phones, how the TV remote works, and how to help put groceries in the shopping cart. She's quite a smart little kid and it's hard to believe that she's almost 2.

Not much else has happened that's worth writing about. Amber's learning so much and gaining new skills by the day, so it's hard to recap how much she knows now. People ask me questions like, "how many words does she know," and I just answer, "all of them" because it's practically true. :-)

So again, you can look forward to more regular posting here about what's happening in our little part of the world. If you're interested, you can check out my blog, or the Android blog Shelsy and I write together. Until next time, thanks for sticking around and being our loyal readers.
