Happy January 16th!




Is it really already halfway through January!?  Wow!  

I miss blogging.  I haven't been very consistent lately, sorry guys.  But we are all doing well.  We had a great week with Aimee and Nathan- lots of games and talking and cooking and making things.  We made 2 successful batches of soap- one unscented, one cinnamon & patchouli.  I was happy with the way this new scented batch turned out, as the last scented batch I made (vanilla) was kind of stinky and smelled like play dough.  Anyhoo, yes, we had a wonderful time, and now I am lonely without visitors.  But not for long- my mom is flying in today!  Just a few more hours, actually.  I still need to wash the sheets for her bed.  

Ezekiel is doing wonderfully, of course!  Today his physical therapist said he should be the poster-child for the NICU because he is developing right on target.  She was very pleased with his progress in head control, visual tracking, and flexibility.  We're pleased, too.  

Alright I always just stop writing, I never feel like I really finnish a blog- I get distracted, and then just publish it.

Hi! I hope you are having a great time with your mom there. I know she is loving her Ezekiel time :) I just wanted to let you know that Nathan thinks that the 2nd picture looks like Grandpa Pike. I think I might agree. We're missing you this week! Love, Aimee
