It has been forever again since our last update. I have to be honest after working all day at a computer the last thing I want to do is sit in front of one when I get home. But tonight Iwill give an update.

Life is good. Javier is still working in Eldora at the State Training School, we are constantly walking on egg shells hoping no more lay offs are on the way. I am still a nurse in Evansdale and Hudson is still of of course the cutest little boy ever! :) My baby is going to be 3 in April. I can't believe how fast he has grown and how amazing he is. He is the joy of our lives. The other day day at dinner he asked me to write an H and then he says "H-U-D-S-O-N, Hudson. He spelled his name. What??? I couldn't believe it! I was so proud of him and he of course was very proud of himself! His favorite things right now are cars and going bowling. He loves to bowl.

I can't believe it is already February. 2010 has already brought its challenges but a lot of them have been struggles in my own heart. I am starting to once again long for another baby. But, this time it seems to be a different longing. We are praying if maybe adoption, or fostering to adopt would be the right thing for our family. I look forward to this year to see where God is leading us. I am anxious to see how He responds to the desires of my heart. I am longing to grow closer to Him and to experience Him in a new way this year. I pray that everyone will experience him in a new way this year and be blessed by what He has to show us and to give us.

Update on Life

First, Hudson. He officially has given up his bobo and to our amazement it only took him 2 days to stop asking for it! He is also doing very good with going on the potty! He got to go to Chuck E. Cheese yesterday to celebrate his success. He is growing so fast and we love watching all the new things he does. Right now he is in to making up songs about everything, it is so cute!

The next part of our life update doesn't bring as much joy. Javier is going to be laid off again in November with no chance of being hired back this time. The state budget cuts are making it so 8-10 guys that he works with will be losing their jobs. I am sad for Javier because he loved this job so much. He has started looking for other jobs already but there just aren't a lot out there right now.

We would appreciate prayers as we go through this hard time- we know that God will provide, right now I am just praying for him to provide one day at a time. We know that he has a plan for us, we will just wait to see what that is.

"I Want My BoBo"

Yesterday we took away Hudson's "BoBo", for those of you that don't know that is his pacifier. He is VERY attached to his bobo so we didn't think this was going to be an easy task. We decided the best way to do it would be to go cold turkey so yesterday morning when he woke up he left bobo in his bed and didn't get it back again. He used to just get bobo in the car and at nap and bedtime so our ride to daycare Wednesday morning was a long one. He cried half way there and wanted me to hold his hand. He just kept saying over and over "I want my BoBo" He then cried for about an hour and a half last night when we got home before dinner. Amazingly enough he didn't cry when he went to bed and today has been a pretty good day! He has only asked for bobo a few times and went to bed tonight and didn't make a peep! So, we have made it through day two and we are waiting to see how day 3 goes! Who knew a "bobo" could be so addictive? I guess anything that is comforting to you is hard to give up. Stay tuned for the next "bobo" update!!

Potty Training

This week we have really started working hard on the potty training. Hudson could really take it or leave it but he gets really excited when he does go on the potty. Last night I took him in to try to go potty one more time before bed and he grabs his potty book right away and "reads" it while he sits and waits to go pee pee. Last night he went #1 and #2! He was so excited that he couldn't wait to get down so he could call his daddy and tell him he went poo poo on the potty. Javier has promised him that if he keeps up the good work he will take him to Chuckie Cheese, so every time we are on the way to the potty he says, "I go Chuckie Cheeses." Hey, whatever it takes to get him excited about going on the potty! I guess the Handy Manny big boy underwear isn't incentive enough. :)

Our First Family Vacation

We just returned from our first family vacation to CO for 5 days! We took Hudson to the mountains and to visit some friends! We did fly which Hudson was quite excited about-as he said "we fly in the plane up in the sky" Here is a pic of him watchin tv with his headphones!

We got to meet our friends daugter Faith while we were there also! It was so great to finally meet her. She and Hudson made quick friends. Thanks for all of your hospitality Brian and Jen. Love you guys!

We took Hudson to Tiny Town to ride the "Choo Choo Train," the zoo and the aquarium! It was fun to show him all those things. It was awesome watching him see the mountains for the first time! It was like seeing them all over again for us through his eyes!

Well- today Hudson started the ever so famous "Why?" phase, which leaves me trying to figure out a lot of "because" answers! He is getting so big, I can't believe it. Today he started asking "why" to everything I said. I have to admit- it is already driving me a little crazy and it just started! It may be driving me crazy but it makes me smile more! My curious little boy! You gotta love it!
