Martin started potty training this month and he is doing wonderful! He will be a pro before we know it. Brody turned 4 months old and decided he wanted to start sitting up on his own. At his 4 month well visit he weighed in at 17lbs 4oz and 26.25 inches long. We are continually working on the basement, which seems like a never ending process right now but we are moving right along. Grandpa Farnsworth’s health is continuing to decline. He no longer gets out of bed and barely responds when you wake him up. Martin and Brody are enough to wake him up for a few minutes but he quickly falls back asleep. We pray that he isn’t and doesn’t suffer and we pray for Grandma Farnsworth, who is 1 ginormous bucket of stress right now. Kate goes up to Wellington every 2-3 weeks to visit and help in any way she can.

We kicked off the month by going up to Wellington. Martin went swimming and turned into a fish the minute he got in the water. I think swimming lessons are in order next year. Brett got a nice sunburn because he forgot to put sunscreen on himself. Kate’s brother Jeremiah set off fireworks and even Great Grandpa came out to watch. Kate went back to work and it took awhile to get into a groove. Brett went on his 1st business trip to WA, OR, and UT. Martin asked for daddy daily and counted the days until daddy got home. We also took a trip to the zoo with some friends from church. It was HOT, but we all had fun. Brody is of course growing, growing. He now sits assisted and is reach for things. We broke out the exersaucer and Brody absolutely loves it! Kate and Brody ended the month with another trip to Wellington while Brett and Martin worked on the basement.
