Big Girl

There are a couple of new videos and pictures in the January folder (yes, I realize that it is February). She has recently learned to sit by herself and she is quite proud of herself. I think she really likes the new perspective it gives. Please forgive the horrible camera work. I try to get close to her so you can see her precious face, but sometimes it doesn't work out so well.

As far as the sleeping goes, she woke up once the night after my last post. We were happy with that. Then last night she slept all night again! Granted, she went to sleep around 11 and woke up at 6:30, and then went back to bed and woke up around 10, but I consider 11-6:30 a full nights sleep because the sun was up when she got up at 6:30.

Now I'm in a dillema because she went to sleep around 7:30, and now its 9:30 and she's still sleeping. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal, except that we need to change her bandages and we hate having her wake up that way. I think it would be awful to wake up because people are messing with you. We usually try to wait until she wakes up on her own, which until a couple of days ago always happened. Now I don't know what to do.

I have to brag on my wonderful husband a little bit. He did incredible on his grades last semester. In one class he got the 4th highest grade in the class! The teacher was so impressed that she asked him to come in and talk with her about how he prepared for her class and the final. Then, she wrote up a sheet of study suggestions for her current class and referenced the techniques Joe used. I am so proud of him. He is doing a great job balancing family and school. I am so lucky!

Ella goes to the pediatrician tomorrow. We are excited to see how much she weighs. Joe asked her how much she weighed and he said "when I get to the right weight then make your noise" (the same noise in all the videos). She made it at 17lbs 4 oz. We'll see how close she is.

WOW Katie!!! She's looking more like you every day! Congrats on the good grades Joe. I hope y'all are doing well! Shon and I would love to have y'all over sometime if you ever get a break from studying. (And of course Miss Ella too!) See you soon!
