So, again, I fail!  I still don't have pictures to post of our trip (I'll have to get Jonathan to help me find them).  We didn't take a camera, except for Jonathan's phone, but all of our friends from our trip did share with us, I'm just not sure how/where they are saved)!  I also haven't done personal thank you notes to all those that helped support us!  That is on my to-do list!

Anyway, Emrick is getting so old so fast.  We were working on a memory verse from church when he started quoting another that I think he learned at school.  It was so neat to hear him saying verses he had learned from school.  Sometimes I struggle with the fact that I'm a working mom, and that the boys spend so much time at daycare, but today it was refreshing and comforting to know that he is receiving some biblical teaching at school, too!  And honestly, probably more than I would do/did when I am home with them in the summers.  Anyway, I digress.  It was so cute, that when we got home, I made him say them for the camera to share with all of you!  Here is the documentation of our first three memory verses!
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."  John 3:16 
(I love the way he says perish; and this is the verse I didn't even realize he knew until today)
"Don't be afraid!  Stand firm, and you will see how the Lord will save you today." Exodus 14:13

"In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth." Genesis 1:1

Becker is getting just as big, just as fast.  He is SO ROUGH.  He is constantly bumping his head...not soft bumps either...just since Friday, he has jumped/fallen out of the cart at Wal-mart and banged his head on the floor, busted his lip at daycare, and fallen backward off the ottoman into the fireplace on his head.  Please don't call DSS on us...he is just so stinkin fast and fearless.  He always cries for a sec, but then goes right back to where he left off!  The boy has NO fear, and evidently a really high pain tolerance.  He is going to give me a heart attack; I'm sure of it!  In the last month or so, he has popped at least three teeth through, and I'm pretty sure working on more.  He is working on words, but doesn't have that many yet.  He can say his name, and is learning "MORE" very quickly.  He's also developing quite the personality.  I always say, "He is so cute when he's happy!"  Because, he knows what he wants, and he is only happy when he has what he wants...oh, boy!  Some of my favorite, most recent pictures of this bad boy:
This was a TERRIBLE day for the two of us.  We butted heads on many, many occasions this day, but at least there was one cute picture to account for the evilness!  ;)

And here he is sporting one of his bumps and bruises on his head!  Cuteness!

Baby 3 seems to be growing fine!  The heart rate on Oct 8 was 145-150.  Both boys were in the same range throughout their pregnancies.  We've said from the beginning we think it is another boy.  We will see!  And SOON!  We go Friday to do the full baby scan and will hopefully be able to see if our prediction of boy is correct.  Please fill free to pray that the full body scan goes well, and that baby 3 is healthy!  I'll try to get back here then and share with our 2 faithful followers the results!
For good measure, here is baby 3!
