MAJOR UPDATES!

Hello Friends and Family,
I hope your summer is starting off wonderfully!
This summer is proving to be a summer of change, and blessing. We have a lot of updates on life you won’t want to miss, so keep reading.
Our house:
Is still under a contingent contract with our buyers upon the sale of their house. We’ve renewed our contract with them once, And are waiting to see what pans out in the next week or so. Please keep us in prayer about that. It’s been tough to be in limbo, not knowing what’s in Store for us, or where we will be living in a month. We know that God’s got this, and are still excited about what He’s got up his sleeve. Our new house is coming along! They have finished framing, and will probably begin siding this week. We are still on schedule for a mid-August closing. We can’t wait! It’s been so much fun watching it go up. We drive by at least once a day to see what they are up to. Adelyn is quite into the process, also. She says, “ The men are building a house for us, right?” She likes to get out and go see what will eventually be our backyard. I think she is really starting to understand that we are going to move. Please continue to pray for a smooth transition for everyone.
Our Family:
IS GROWING!!! Yes, that’s right! We are expecting baby #3 in December. (Yet another Christmas baby in our family!!) It was a bit of a surprise to us, and it
has taken some getting used to. But we are coming around to the idea! We know God has a plan, and that he will give us everything we need to parent
3 beautiful children! Ryland will be 22 months, and Adelyn will turn 4 in December. We are going to have a VERY busy household. But, we are excited.
we plan to find out the gender in July, but the name will remain a secret, as always! I’ve tried to convince Kyle that we should let the gender be a surprise,
since we are prepared either way, but, he’s pretty sure we need to be able to know how to plan ahead! I am almost 11 weeks and feeling… pregnant. :) I have had morning sickness off and on… it seems to come in waves. But, I feel like my good days are becoming more frequent, so hopefully I will soon turn the corner, into the bliss of 2nd trimester. Please pray for a healthy pregnancy, and healthy baby.
Adelyn:
Is as energetic as ever! She is working hard on not having any potty accidents for a whole month. If she fills up her calendar with stickers, she will get a Pillow Pet. She is very excited. So far we have gone a week and a half accident free. (This is a record!!) She is even staying dry for naps. I guess all it takes is the right motivation! Now, if we could find a good motivation for bedtime, we would be set! Please pray for her to know how much we love her, and how much God loves her.
Ryland:
Is still in physical therapy, but I am sure he will be graduating out of that very soon! As soon as he is walking he will be done with that. He is pretty close, just needs some confidence. I am ready to be done with PT, just to have one less appointment!! We are meeting with our CHIP (Colorado Home Intervention Program, for children who are Deaf or hard of hearing) Facilitator once a week. We are learning new ways to teach him language and have lots of “homework” to do for that. Our facilitator is wonderful, and we work together as a team really well. He seems to be using his hearing aids really well, and is turning into quite a noisy little boy!! Please pray for patience for us, and for his future audiology testing. He is at a very difficult age to test in a sound booth! His next appointment is Friday the 11th.

Ephesians 3:16-19

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
