We had a tough start to the New Year. Damian's Grampa Fountain- Lynn's Dad- passed on New Years Day. We really wanted to be down there in Georgia, but it didn't work out. Damian's Grandfather was a preacher for most of his life and a devote Christian. He and his wife were a constant in Damian and Jason's lives, spending summers with them in Georgia; they created many memories as a family together. Damian, Matthew and I spent the weekend reflecting on his life and celebrating him. It was a really nice weekend for us to spend as a family, although we were sad we could not be with Lynn and Dave.
We are going to visit Lynn and Dave in March and cannot wait to be there in the sunshine and have a bit of a vacation!
Matthew started his week back to daycare this week- he has transitioned so well and has so much fun there. Its so nice to see him interact with other kids. He has found some new words too- such as Go..go...go!!, Hat, Bubbles and has started with more sign language as well. He's a very happy boy!
Finally, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our Little Peanut Dodd. She is expected to arrive on January 7th, Mom Lazdowsky's birthday and we are all very excited to meet her and have this new addition to our family!
