September 2009

September 30th, 2009

September has been a quiet month for us. Brett started working on the basement. So far he has torn out the wood paneling and started doing some rewiring. Grandma DeGroot was in Ohio for a few days to visit. While she was here we celebrated her birthday along with Kate and Brett’s. Brett graduated from Columbus State with an Associates in Business Management. Kate had her 2nd prenatal visit and Mama and baby are doing well. Martin is as curious as ever and loves to be outside. He is also learning a lot about colors, numbers, and manners. October will be a busy month with the remodeling, 2 birthdays, and Halloween.


August 2009

Brett, Kate and Martin got some very exciting news at the beginning of August. We are expecting baby #2 in April!!! Martin is 22 months. Can you believe he is almost 2? Our big boy has a lot of major changes coming his way, he will be starting to potty train, be moving to a new room, and adjusting to a new baby in the house. Martin’s most recent accomplishment is learning to dress and undress himself. He still needs a lot of help but it won’t be long before he does it on his own. He has also been learning about shapes, colors, and numbers. Martin has his 1st favorite color: blue.

We are pleased to announce that another bundle of joy is on its way and Kate is due in the middle of April 2010. We will let everyone know what it will be when we find out – yes, we will be sneaking a peak this time instead of keeping it a surprise.
