Hi Everybody!

Hello. Welcome to our new blog. We started this, by prompting from Jill's oldest brother, to keep everyone up to date on our family. This blog is in the begining, so it's not that put together yet, plus we're still getting the hang of it. Hopefully we'll update it about once a month with news and pictures of our family. So keep checking it from time to time. For family security this blog can only be viewed by those people we invite via e-mail.

Douglas has recently passed his Limitted Licence Test (meaning he's a partial x-ray tech) and will actually start getting paid for some of his hours starting April 18. He's currently doing a free internship at Jordan Valley Hospital, and has been for the past 8 months. So after 8 months of free labor he's very excited to start getting paid. However, his internship continues for school and so he'll continue to put in some free hours as well. For those who might not know. . . Douglas is currently attending Weber State University to become an x-ray tech, and then will continue on to a different branch of radiology (i.e. ct, mri, radiologist assit., etc.). He has not decided what branch to go into yet, but will decide by the end of this year.

The biggest news of course is our new baby boy, Japheth (ph is pronounced as the f sound). He was born March 12, 2007 at 2:18 pm. He was delivered by cesarian at Cottonwood Hospital, he weighed 7 lbs. 4 oz. and was 19 in. long. He came a full 2 weeks early, but was just in time for the start of Douglas' spring break, giving us more time together before Douglas had to return to school and the hospital. He's absolutely adorable and fun. Even during the hard work and frustration we always end up saying "it's a good thing you're so cute." Jill is taking some time off of being a crossing guard until things settle down, but will return with Japheth in June. Japheth also recently had his two week check-up at which everything was good. They weighed him at 7 lbs. 9 oz. and he measured 19 3/4 inches.
