A lot going on...

Ethan is doing big news...he is reading and that's HUGE! I didn't know if we'd see the day when he enjoys reading enough to bring me books to read with him. I love how much he's growing and changing. He's definitely taking the "older brother" role. This summer we were working together to move Todd's Mustang from my Mom's garage to ours (after Mike and Brian helped Todd put the garage together - thanks guys). But when we needed to get the car off the trailer we needed someone in the car to press the brakes if it started to roll too fast...we knew Ethan could keep a level head in a tight spot (Lane Michael gets too excited). He did well and has talked about it a lot since then. He's definitely better to have in an emergency, he thinks fast on his feet.

Ryan has been potty train-able for a few weeks now. He just refuses to do it. He's even started holding it until he goes to bed...which means very few wet diapers but the wet ones are WET LOL I'm sure he's just experimenting with control and showing us who's boss. I'm not in a hurry but I also don't expect to be in diapers long (which makes me sad - - I really enjoy cloth diaper butts).

Lane Michael is having a hard time right now. The last few weeks he's been moody. Really moody. He's acting how I feel when my thyroid meds are off (or like I did before I started thyroid meds). He was laughing about something the other day and as soon as I laughed (with him) he started crying. He didn't know why he was crying. He fights with me all the time and doesn't seem to be able to control it. He's been sleeping a lot lately (even when he has cousins over to play with). He's just not himself.

All in all though, life is good. I wish we had more time...time for other people (I miss my friends) more time with my family and just in general more time together.

I know that I don't really have room to say this, since my lazy butt hasn't been going to church (plus you already know this). But, God will take great care of Mr Ethan!! But I do know it is still scary!!
