Please pray that the great physician will heal his little heart. Please pray for Jennifer the mom as she has had a rough night of vomiting because of all of this. Thanks for keeping them in your prayers today.

Finally...... hitting 2 milestones!

As many of you know Ainsley STILL has not been walking. She can pull up on everything, stand in the middle of the room, do a forward roll, but walking..... NOPE! So finally on Monday she started to take some steps. She takes about 3-5 steps then falls but now she will get right back up and try again. It is all starting to click in her little head. Here are a couple of pictures of our precious baby taking a few steps.

Along with walking... she has also started another milestone...... TIME OUT! Yep that's right.... here she is on our official "time out" rug. She goes to "time-out" for hitting her brothers, throwing a fit when she wants something the other kids have, climbing the stairs, or throwing food over the side of her highchair. It is so hard not to laugh because she just sits there and waits until her 1 minute is up.
So here she is with a cookie filled face on the time out rug!

Swimming Lessons

The kids just got done with 2 weeks of swimming lessons and they did great. The boys had a rough start but after about 3 days of crying they ended up learning a lot!
Addisyn loved the diving board... she would jump off and take off and swim across the pool to the other side. She also learned to diving and floating.

Karsten was the less confident... which is sort of surprising. But toward the end he would do whatever the teachers would ask.

Luke is a pleaser so he would do what the teachers asked but would be scared at first. As soon as he got comfortable he was good to go.

Poor Ainsley she had to be strapped down in the stroller for an hour while the kids swam.... I just kept giving her snacks and she actually did great!
Here is Luke learning to swim under water.
Here is Karsten swimming under the water with their swim teacher, Mrs. Kimm.
Go Luke GO!
Luke really liked floating. He looks tense in this picture but he really liked it!
Karsten just hanging out on his back with his teacher.
