Update

Here is an update an our little family. Caden is sitting up on his own! He still falls over quite a bit, but will sit up for a few minutes on his own. He loves his big brother and gave him his first kisses the other day. I tried to get it on camera, but I was too slow.

Nathan is so much fun. I love to hear him tell stories about how his day was to Scott. He doesn't always get everything correct, but he is so excited that we are paying attention just to him that he just rambles on and on.

Scott is working a ton. It has started to pick up in the mortgage department so he has been going in early and working late. We don't see him on Mondays or Tuesdays because he goes straight to school after work and doesn't get home until after 10pm. I am doing my best to make sure he gets some free time to himself, but it doesn't always happen.

We bought a new car! I am finally free! Last weekend we bought our first van, a Dodge Grand Caravan. So I am getting out a lot more. At the same time I am getting a lot more done around the house because I don't feel like I can leave unless it is clean. I am also looking forward to getting to the gym more now. I have a feeling my weeks are going to become a lot busier now, I am so excited! I'll try to get some pictures of our new fancy van later.

Congrats on the car! I don't know how you did it so long! I would die if I was cooped up in this apartment all day with no one around or anything to do!

Caden looks so cute in that picture of him sitting!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhh! Too cute for words. I think it is wonderful the way Nathan is becoming intellectual and gets his time in with Mom and Dad to express his feelings about his day and what he was doing. He is growing up so fast. And they are both so cute! Congratulations on the new van! You so deserve good things!!!

Hi. My friend said she accidentally left off a digit off my blog address and found yours. She was so surprised that another Nelson had a Nelson Nook and was LDS. We live in Utah.

Your blog is cute. Feel free to visit mine. I am always looking for cute ideas for my blog.
