Why We Did It...
So, we did it! We've joined the rest of modern civilization and created a family blog. I'm not sure why the delay. This seems like something we would have done a long time ago. Okay, maybe something Bek would have done a long time ago. Andy, not so much. Well, now it almost seems a necessity. We've moved from our families and thought this was the perfect way to keep them updated without having to pick up the phone. You remember the phone right? Fits in your hand, sometimes rectangular, sometimes in the shape of a football, sometimes a banana. You know, we used it before e-mail and text message. Ahhh, it was a simpler time.
Anyway, we created the blog for our families and friends. Despite the fact that Andy's parents are horribly technologically un-savvy, we thought we'd do it anyway. Maybe it'll serve as motivation for Mom & Dad K to throw caution to the wind... and their typewriter too, and figure out how to use that confounded computer thing-a-ma-jig sitting in Dusty's old room.
So, here we are. We've been in Provo now for almost two months. Wow! Two months. Andy started school this week and is already swamped with homework. It was so nice to have him home for the summer, especially right after Jax was born, but now I've gone back to being an almost-single parent. Ava misses him terribly when he's gone. She asks several times a day when Daddy will be home from school or if she can go visit him. You should see the look on her face when she hears his keys in the door. Priceless!
Jax, well, Jax is HUGE! He's quite the chunky little monkey. He turned three months old on the 28th and is already tipping the scales at a whoppin' 18 pounds. I swear, I see other babies his age (you know the ones who haven't smashed the weight percentile charts to smithereens) and I think to myself, "Wow! Jax could eat that baby." But, oh my goodness, he's so cute. He wears all the rolls and chunk so well. I can't imagine him any other way. And his smile... it melts me. He doesn't just smile with his mouth, his whole face smiles. He's such a happy, sweet baby. We're two for two in the great baby department!
Alright, that's enough for now. We'll be back for more very soon.
