We can't believe January is almost gone. Jason is now 6 weeks old and starting to do a few things, such as smiling and trying to reach things with his hands. He can hold his head up pretty good and loves to have Kylie and Austin around. All 3 kids seem to get along great so far. Kylie is finishing her swimming lessons and doing good at that. Austin gets to go to the pool with her too. Both of them are practically fish. We haven't had hardly any snow this month so far. February is typically dry too, so we are looking forward to March and April, when things get interesting. Ariel has been traveling a lot this year so far and JoLynn has been able to start running again while trying to keep up with the kids. Austin is starting to get excited about his 4th birthday in March (Kylie may actually be more excited about that). We will have all the grandparents come to town in February as we are planning for Jason's baby blessing on Feb 14. That will be fun.

December was quite a month for us. We have been very busy lately. We started by going to the hospital on a Friday night 11:30PM thinking that Jason was coming. Turned out to be a false alarm. We came home around 4:30AM on that Saturday. Jason ended up arriving the following Friday at 7:19AM. He came fast. We made it to the hospital at 6AM, so things moved quickly from there. He was 7lbs 15oz and 18 3/4 inches long. For us, that is a big baby. He was actually the biggest of our three. The kids love having him around, especially Kylie who is quite the little mom. On the 22nd we had our 8th wedding anniversary and then, of course, Christmas came quickly. The kids really enjoyed Christmas this year. They are now old enough to get very excited and anxious about presents, trees, lights, etc. We will watch Jason grow in 2010 and should be a fun year.
