Hello, Kendall!

This past Saturday, we went to the wedding of a good friend of the Novak family. We had a great time and were so thankful that the wedding/reception was at a golf club. Camden definitely made a huge game of finding and throwing golf balls. What age do they slow down, again???? We're waiting!! :) Anyway, since we were all dressed up, we thought it would be the perfect time to start capturing belly shots of sweet, growing Kendall. Joel has been able to feel her tiny kicks for a couple weeks now, but they're getting stronger each day! Even still, she seems to be a little softer and gentler than big brother Camden was. We're anxious to meet and snuggle her 15 short weeks from Thursday (ha ha....can you believe I'm counting down already???)

23 weeks and growing...

We tried to get a good family picture all night and this one was the best! It's hard with the two babies....see the golf ball in Cam's mouth?? :)

Say prayers for our house situation. We got a call the day before we were to close saying that the person buying our house lost his job, therefore no one was able to move forward with the pending plan. We have every single thing packed ready to go and are just waiting for the situation to be resolved. The poor people that owned our new house have already left and are paying for the house to sit empty + their new place. It's hard for Joel and I to think about unpacking and starting the house showing process over....so we're just praying and waiting for things to fall into place. We've been encouraged that it will still happen, but aren't sure when. We keep reminding ourselves that God's plan is bigger than ours (except I liked my plan just fine. :)). We'll keep everyone posted! Have a great week!

Holy cow...I can't believe our last post was September 2nd!! So sorry about that! I have no idea where September went! We've had the craziest month at our house. Hang in there....there's a lot to catch up on!! September 10th, we took Dad to the emergency room with a really swollen and red leg. Turns out he had a weird leg infection that caused him to be in the hospital for over a week and another week of home recovery. This week was his first week back to work and he's feeling much better. All the ladies in his life are making sure he's taking it easy! :) Thanks for your prayers for my Dad!

September 12th, we welcomed a perfect, beautiful and precious little nephew Isaac Paul Farmer in to the world! It was very hard not having Dad there with us to celebrate Ike's little life, but we definitely had the computers hooked up for a much needed ichat where Dad could see Ike and Nat and talk for a minute. Big brother Gage is adjusting great and is very loving to the baby! Holding Isaac makes Joel and I SOOOOO excited to meet Kendall!

Nat and Adam weren't even home a week before they had to take sweet Ike back to the hospital with a high fever. They ran lots and lots of invasive tests including a spinal tap to rule out anything dangerous and kept Isaac for 48 hours to observe him. He's home now and is doing much better! Thanks for your prayers over him, too!

We're hoping everyone in our family stays well so they can help us move in a week!! We actually close on our house Friday and we have lots of home improvement plans over the next week before we move all our things. Lets just say every spare moment and each nap Camden takes has been filled with packing packing packing. I'm definitely never moving again! :) We're so excited and feel so blessed to have our health and a new place to call home!

Camden is a talking machine saying words like pretty, Mommy, poopy, Daddy (oh I'm already working on teaching him to string those four together), bible, amen, car, bath, ball, apple. So cute to hear him and watch him learn! Kendall has definitely decided to make her grand appearance! Belly pictures on another day. :) Check out the latest of our little guy and family...

Whew...that was September!! Hopefully you haven't quit checking the blog. I promise to be better! New house pictures soon! :)

Camden loves to smile, laugh, and be a busy boy. Kendall has her daddy right where she wants him!!
