sorry it's been so long

so, i realize i haven't updated in almost a month. there's not really any excuse for that except that we have been pretty busy, nothing huge has been going on, and dillon is doing great! we haven't had any visitors until just yesterday...ben's mom is in town for the rest of the week!!! it's always such a blessing to have grammy/brenda/mom here and i'm sure that we'll have lots of pictures to post afterwards. i don't even think that i have any new pictures to post of dillon...i'll look and see. we did get dillon's isaac's crib and mattress, dillon's new carseat, AND our double stroller ALL last weekend, thanks to grandparents and the wonderful girls that i used to work with at the salon. we are SO excited for isaac to get here and i'm so glad ben's mom IS here this week so she can help me arrange the two cribs, bookshelf, chest of drawers, changing table, and rocking chair that we have in the boys' room. we might have to do away with the rocking chair :( ... but i think i will live. ha! for those of you that are wondering...ben did hear back from aeneas. they are looking for more of a part-time person. well, ben is willing to negotiate with them if they are with them about him being that part-time person, but we will just have to wait and see what God does. praise Him, that ben has been VERY busy the past couple of weeks. this is usually his down week and the only reason i saw him during the day yesterday was because of the trip to the airport to get brenda. we praise God that He has given us the flexibility of having ben work from home and we are SO thankful for the steady, busy work that he has had! we pray that the Lord continues to bless ben in his efforts to provide for us. we know that God can do anything he wants, and we really really appreciate your prayers for our family. they have definitely been felt. as far as everything else goes, isaac continues to grow, praise the Lord. i went to the doc monday and she told me if i did go into labor, they wouldn't do anything to stop me. so, part of me would LOVE to go into labor NOW and part of me really wants this little guy to hang on for a little bit longer ;). i have been having contractions...nothing serious or regular, but i know that he is getting ready to get here and i am so excited for that. i can't wait to see what he looks like and to hold his little hand and kiss his little nose and see his little toes. anyway, we love you all and we thank God for His provision as of late. come see us soon!!

please pray!!!

ben has an interview at aeneas tomorrow at 10:00 am!!!! please pray and we will keep you posted!!!!!!
****************************************EDIT******************************************
SO, the interview did go well. everything that we had heard about this position was not exactly true, but the director of sales seemed to really like ben and they hit it off. so, that is good. also, this company is not in any hurry to fill the position. and what we thought would be full time with benefits and everything turns out that it might just be a parttime position for ben because he's worth more than a recent college grad :) (sorry to all of you recent college grads, but it's only true). so, we beg you to still pray. we need this job very badly. ben needs wisdom in knowing when to contact them again to check on the status of the job and to know exactly what to do. we're praying for an open or closed door period. so, please join us in praying for that. thanks so much for your prayers and if you have any further questions, please call either one of us. seriously, we KNOW that all of you have been praying and there's no way that we can thank you for that. we love you all!

there's a first time for everything!

so, we decided to give dillon SPAGHETTI on monday! monday nights seem to be, and have been for a long time, spaghetti night at the williams's. it started out with stefi brazzeal and josh mousse coming over for dinner every monday. josh worked (and still does) at this great liquor store in nashville and we had a tour of wines around the world, thanks to josh ;) those were great times! well, josh got married, stefi moved to georgia, and since then, joe and lisa garner, ariel gee, and some others have been a big part of spaghetti night. well, now dillon gets to partake in spaghetti night! he LOVED it!!!! please notice the clump in his hair, and ben decided we needed to market a new hair product, spaghetti gel. gross :)




the finished product...everything got thrown in the wash...including dillon!


oh how this boy loves bath-time!!!

and as promised, here's a picture of isaac james! 8 weeks and counting!!!!

we love reading!!!

this is dillon's new favorite thing to do.



he LOVES this book tails. it's about all
the different kinds of animal tails, but i think what he likes the most about it is the different textures that it shows all of the animals having! it's a really cool book, even if it is torn up by the time he's three ;) he'll enjoy it for these three years.
dillon has also started doing a LOT of new things. we started him on table food (see the previous two posts), he started drinking from a sippee cup, we're weening him off of formula (praise Jesus) and he's crawling. that's right!!! he's not up on all fours yet, but this kid gets around!! sometimes he'll get really tired of crawling and just start rolling all over the place again, but he loves to crawl under the piano and play the pedals, he loves the door, and he loves to get under the table or chair and lay there and read. it's pretty fun to see this little personality coming out in our little boy! also, his favorite words as of late are mm-bop mm-bop mm-bop, pop pop pop, hada, and dada. i'm not sure that he realizes that he's talking about ben when he says dada, but we'll both take it for now.
as for other news, we only have 8 MORE WEEKS until little isaac gets here. i hate to say this, but i really am looking forward to not being pregnant and i'm looking forward to seeing what isaac looks like! that's THE most fun thing in the world!! i'll try to post a pic later of my HUUUUGE belly. it's crazy, this belly of mine ;) we love you all! here's a little video of dillon crawling. sorry it's a little dark.
