My Monthly Update!

It is a shame that I don't update this more often. God is definitely in the Maxwell household. Alasha is now in her new store, and she likes it a lot. Thank you to all of you who were praying for her. Jonah is doing great. He is growing like a weed and the words are coming. He can repeat most everything he hears. This has really shed a light on the things Alasha and I say and how we say them. He can count to 5 or 10 depending on how he is feeling. I have a new grill. I have gone over to the dark side and will use propane, because one could cook themselves waiting on charcoal here in Texas. We have also been blessed with a second vehicle which sadly is needed here in Arlington. There is no public transportation in this state that comes close to the public transportation in my Northwest Home (Portland, Or). It is a 93 Cadillac and it runs, thank you Lord. It actually looks good to be so old. One of my elders blessed us with the car. Well the last thing I will report for now is the fact that at 10:35 am this morning Jonah's toddler school teacher came into my office and said that Jonah asked to go to the potty and he went. Yeah! Jonah! God bless your day!

February 23, 2007

Well what can I say. He is "two". A few weeks ago we celebrated Jonah's 2nd birthday. It was low key because we know that to Jonah it is still not that big of a deal yet. Lord willing, we will have many parties and celebrations where he will asking for the "latest, greatest, and biggest" so we decided to take him shopping and use to the time to hang out with some hommies. Amanda Peterson flew in from Colorado Springs, and we all hung out with Emily Wallace and just had a great time. We went to this huge mall that takes too long to walk around. I think it is a mile to walk around the whole mall. We bought Jonah some much needed videos and clothes and fed him some "Popeyes" chicken. he was very happy. The day after his birthday, my brother and his family came down and we had a little cake and ice cream. Jonah was given more things and had a great time. Thanks to everyone who hung out with us and helped us celebrate Jonah's birthday. He is a special boy and Alasha and I love him very much and it is very encouraging to witness others that love your child. Thank you, Pearl and Robert for the card. he loves anything musical so it was a hit.
Love you all, please keep us in your prayers.

Steve, Alasha, and Jonah!
