Ephraim at 16 and 17 weeks!

September 2009

My little guy is growing like crazy...I can hardly believe I take him to the doctor for his 4 month checkup THIS week. He is such an amazing little blessing in our lives. Being a mom has really changed me (for the better!) and I'm so glad God has blessed us with this healthy miracle.

And, here he is......
Daddy and Eph in their brown hoodies

Acting Silly!
Cute in Camo
His shirt says "Grandpas or Bust!"

Those eyes are amazing....

Eph and Snickers chillin on the bed together : )
Beauty in Green!
He is thinking!

Life is good and so are we!

September 27, 2009

So, life is good and so is the Batson family. While we could all use a little more sleep (little man has decided to NOT sleep through the night anymore) we are doing great, super healthy and happily adjusting to the craziness of our lives.

Updates: Jerret started his MBA classes--super stressful, so please keep him in your prayers. Steph is back to work and....having a hard time adjusting to work/baby time/wife time/personal time. It seems there are always adjustments and while work is challenging and engaging, it is also a little stressful and overwhelming. Steph is volunteering with ESL students one night a week.

I will have some photos to post here after this post...please stick with us! We love getting comments about our posts and keeping everyone updated about little Ephraim and our family!

We have some photo catching up to do!

Ephraim at 12 weeks.....


Cute little belly!

Favorite thing to do--chew on fingers!

Cute surprise face!

He really does love his bumbo chair--just too many pics!

All smiles!

Ephraim's Florida Trip

10 Week Ephraim

We have had a lot of changes around since the last blog post. I hope everyone loves these updates! Brought to you by a 5am feeding : ) (But I did forget my glasses, so forgive me if there are typos, weird pictures. I am squinting a little!)

The Batson crew rented a beach house in Florida and Jerret, Eph and I took the long 4 hour drive down to see Auntie's Kari and Rayna and Gram Ash and Gramps Mike. It was a fun and relaxing time. Jerret and I also celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary together! (Our 9th year total, though, together.

Ephraim was 10 weeks when we went to Florida!
