It's been awhile!

Well clearly it's been A LONG TIME! So much has happened. Cade finished up 1st grade this past June, and his baseball team went on to win their division championship! So exciting! He is doing really well and growing up SO fast! We can't believe he starts the 2nd grade in a few weeks. I remember when he was born, just like it was yesterday! Cade has had quite the busy summer, since I have been home this summer he didn't have to go to an all day camp, everyday. The first week of summer he was in a 1/2 day lacrosse camp, which he loved!!! Charlie is excited to get him on a team. The next week he was in a 1/2 day basketball camp with a friend of his, and then the following week he went to VBX (VBS with our church). This was his first year to be able to go to this and he had so much fun. He said his favorite part was the singing and all the songs! It was really neat to see him learn what it means to love God! He currently has been with his dad for the month of July, so we are SO ready to have him home.
We welcomed Cohen into our crazy life on May 30th 2010! We are all so excited to have him here finally! Charlie is just loving having a mini me, as most of you know, Cohen looks exactly like Charlie! Cohen has been doing really well, and Cade is so in love with being a big brother! It has been nice to only have Cohen for July, and allowing us to adjust with just him, but we are so ready to have our entire family back together. Cohen has been doing the normal infant patterns, eat, play (for about an hour), then sleep. His sleeping during the day is very sporatic, and doesn't last for very long. He has done great at night, the usual 3-4 hours before waking up. Although, last night, he went 8 hours between feedings & 6 of those he slept! So that was SO nice!
We are so blessed to have Cohen here as it was a long journey to get here!
Charlie and I have decided that I will be staying home with the boys, which I could not be happier about. Of course we will be taking the financial hit, but it's all about trusting the Lord and doing what he wants us to do. I have already loved being "Susie homemaker".
Charlie turns 30 Aug.3rd, so I through a surprise early party for him in July. He had no idea, and it was so much fun!! He is pretty obsessed with getting his iphone4 (which he has now), so I had an iphone4 cake made! It was amazing!

Well I think that's enough for now. I am going to TRY and keep up with this better!

Going Home!

Best brothers
