grew up and to learn my way around a new city, but we're adjusting pretty well. It's great to be up here with our 'fellow church planters'. We miss friends and family back home (shout out to Drewby & Bella!!) but we've had some chances to commute back and forth, and since it's only a 45 minute drive back home, in some ways I feel like I have the best of both worlds :) Anyways, we are blessed to be a part of God's calling for Grace Church and are eager to get started in our new building at the end of August.

And studied his belly
I have to take this opportunity to publically declare what a great dad Ryan is. He is very hands on, changing diapers, feeding, and babysitting so I can go out. He often gets on the floor and plays with Owen, and he can make Owen laugh like no one else. On the days that Ryan is home he takes care of Owen in the morning so I can sleep in. I also appreciate how Ryan takes over the manual labor when he is home, like putting Owen in his carseat and carrying him, getting him in and out of the car, and lugging around all of O's pack n play. Not a day goes by that I don't hear from Ry how much he loves and adores Owen.
You're a great dad, Babe. Thanks for selflessly serving and caring for Owen and me. So glad I get to parent Owen alongside you! Oh, and thanks for giving me a really really cute son :)

Then we went to Starbucks where I got her doll out of the package so she could play with it... and feed it her apple juice. This kid cracks me up!
I love you, Belly girl!!! Happy birthday!
