Hello there

It's been over half a year since our last post. No, we haven't turned insanely busy, been really stressed, or forgotten how to use a computer. We deliberately stopped posting since for a couple of reasons we became hesitant to post a lot about Henry online, and if we weren't going to write about Henry, what else would there be to write about!

We just got done with visiting some relatives and friends, though, who told us that they like to keep up with us on our blog. I'd actually kind of forgotten that we had a blog at that point, so coming back to pen a few words here is a bit nostalgic.

So if we haven't been blogging, what are we doing? Well, we're definitely still spending plenty of time writing about Henry. The way it's played out, I write monthly entries in his baby journal at, and Tricia writes monthly letters to him describing his development. When we're not writing about him, we love to play with him. He is now walking and even though he's surprisingly small for his age, he's quite coordinated, sociable, and really one of our best friends. (Tricia calls me Henry's biggest fan, and she very may well be right so I'm trying to not gush too much about what lucky parents we are.)

I just turned 30 last week. To be honest I haven't had time to be as reflective as I'd like to be about that milestone, but I feel very blessed. I don't think I would have predicted how my life has played out to this point, but I've been blessed more than I deserve with an amazing family and in-laws, co-workers and associates at my company (we often comment that T-Splines, my little company, really has much more talented employees, consultants, board members and friends than it should logically have), friends, and an amazingly devoted wife yoked up beside me.

Finally, what have our distractions/hobbies been lately? Homemade sourdough bread. Jimmer. Waking up at 5 AM (on purpose). Scripture study. Henry.
