picture update

we've been pretty busy over the last couple weeks. michael is a bit overwhelmed with school right now, so he spends a lot of time studying. if i didn't mention it before, he's taking his first greek class this semester and it is really tough! after only about 4 weeks he was expected to translate a full page of greek! crazy. and of course he's busy with his new job as well, which he is enjoying. it's been a big adjustment for all of us, but we're figuring it out. we also started a parenting class at church called "growing kids god's way" - so far we're learning A LOT and loving it. boden and i have been spending as much time as possible outside. i've also been working on some more sign language with boden - he's picking up so much right now and starting to say a lot of words too. he surprises me every day. i was working on teaching him "please" last week, which is rubbing your chest. i mistakenly said "rub your belly to say please" when i wasn't really thinking...well, for the next day or two when i would ask him to say "please" he would lift up his shirt and rub his belly! he makes me laugh every day.

here's some pictures of what boden has been up to lately...

riding his scooter all around. he finally figured out how to get on it by himself, he really only goes backwards though, he hasn't figured out forwards just yet:

hanging out in his rocking chair. this was michael's rocking chair when he was little. boden loves crawling into the chair and just hanging out, drinking his milk or playing with a toy.

reading a book...he's finally starting to get interested in books for more than just chewing on them :)

trying to eat rocks...we have been spending a lot of time outside since the weather has been so beautiful lately and boden loves to be outside, exploring - in fact he screams every time i make him go inside.

more outdoor exploration...
