Bob and I went to the fertility doctor again today. Long story short, they ordered some more tests on Bob and basically recommended that we save our money by not doing any more treatment until they determine whether or not his problem is caused by a lack of hormones. I know it's the right thing to do, and if we have to move to IVF it is definitely good because we will need all the money we currently have saved (Our insurance doesn't cover any of it.). It is just so hard to WAIT! Ezra is only getting older, and it really depresses me that he will be so old by the time he gets a sibling. It's really not fair to him, he is such a great kid, but what can you do? I am also scared that we will do IVF and it won't work the first time, and we will have no money for a round two! It is all just so depressing and stressful. I try to have faith in the Lord and his timing, but it is such an emotional roller coaster ride. I don't mean to sound so down, but I just needed to vent! It is so hard to hear Ezra pray every night for a brother or sister (sometimes brother and sister) and know that I have no control over it! Keep praying for us!

I feel bad that we haven't blogged much lately (or pretty much since we moved), but I never really take pictures because we never do anything that exciting. So instead I will post all the pictures of things that we did that were only documented on my phone (Probably not in chronological order). Enjoy!
Back in August we were watching D&J's kids and daily picking two different gardens.
Despite our best efforts we still came across whoppers like this fairly often.
We also went to Zions camp for some fishing. Sadly this is the only one we caught.
We ate at Home Town Buffet and I asked Bob to get Ezra some sprinkles for his ice cream.
Bob came back with a bowl full of sprinkles which Ezra proceeded to make a huge mess with.
More fishing (but this time at a nasty pond). Bob was so excited to take Ezra fishing.
After a few nasty outings like this for 2 inch fish I told Bob he had to scout out
locations before taking Ezra and I along!
These next few come from the Butte County Fair. It was okay, but would have been better
if Ezra was a little older or had a ten year old sibling. He was too little to ride alone on some rides,
and Bob and I were too big to ride with him! LAME-O!
He really enjoyed the little kid section.
Sorry I didn't rotate this one and am too lazy to rectify the situation.
He loved digging for quarters! I think he found a couple of dollars worth so wahoo!
Again, too lazy to fix this picture. We went to see the salmon run.
I had no idea salmon were so big! It was pretty cool to see them jump.
We went to a fun park in Chico with the cousins. I actually did blog that outing,
but these are pictures from the ice cream trip to finish off the day.
We got to go to opening night for the Kings in Dec. We had awesome seats
and it was a great game! Thanks for taking us Craig!
One of our many outings in the truck. I think we were taking garbage/recyclables to the dump.
Ezra always wants my glasses, but usually wears them upside down. He said the big
dip is for my nose then the little dip is for his nose.
In January we went to Greylodge with all the cousins (minus Rachel and Nathan).
I wonder how old they will all be before we get a good picture.
Ezra has hypo-calcification on some of his teeth thanks to the cleft.
Sadly he had to get a filling when some of his tooth broke off.
He HATED it, but is getting better about the dentist.
And last but not least Ezra can right his own name. He did this with no help or direction.
