Is Spring Here Yet???

Hello everyone! We are officially horrible bloggers. I am going to make a goal to update the blog at least once a week. Cross my heart.

Well, Scott and I survived last semester by the skin of our teeth, and we are SO happy to have started this new semester. We spent Christmas Break in Wisconsin with my family. It was wonderful to be home again after a year and a half. Scott is actually deferring this semester so that I can finish up, and he will start classes again in the summer, while I take one final class online. And then....I'M DONE!!! Finally, after eleven semesters......=)

I am concertmaster of the Symphony Orchestra this semester, and we had our first concerts last week. It was SO much fun! I love being in the Symphony (and being in charge, haha), and I really want to give this last semester all that I have. I'm also taking a cooking class that has been a lot of fun, as well as FA 100 and one last religion class. So far, so good. I'm also trying to prepare for a senior recital this summer, but I'm having a hard time finding the motivation to practice....maybe if Spring would just come already....

Scott has loved having more time at home with Noah. He stays home in the morning while I am at class, and then goes to work in the afternoon. Since our schedules are so much more forgiving, he's been putting in a lot of extra time at work, and recently was promoted to a brand-new position. It's a little confusing to explain, but basically, they took the duties of four or five old positions and put them together into a whole new job. So far, he's loved what he's been doing - much more than just answering the phones. Hopefully the managers will love what he's doing as well, and decide to keep the job around. I'm so proud of him! He really has put so much effort into this. I love you, honey!

Noah is, of course, wonderful =) He wants to crawl - badly - but cannot figure out how to move. He just gets up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth until he falls down. He's also started to be muc
h more opinionated about things, and has become whiny. Still doesn't really cry, but who's complaining? =) Also, when Noah learns a new thing, he does it all the time. For a while, he was making all sorts of weird noises with his mouth, and that was all we could get out of him. Now, he's learned how to shake his head back and forth, and he does it ALL the time, with his eyes open, and a silly grin on his face. Thankfully, I don't think he understands what it means, yet, but man, is it funny to watch. We love him so much! Every day, we can't believe how lucky we are to have such a perfectly cute baby boy. He's growing up too fast!!!

That's the update for the last few months. We also got family pictures done in the beginning of December. The pictures on this post are just a few of them. Again, how cute is our little boy =) Our photographer was Stephanie Patterson. If you like what you see, check out the link on the right side of our blog. There should be a link to her website on her blog, as well. Well, here's to more happy blogging - see you in a week!
