A Field of Pink Flowers

Can you find the baby? She's the little peachy thing with smokey blue eyes in the middle of all those pink flowers! I just couldn't resist the temptation to gussy her all up and take this picture, even though she acted as though I were cutting off her arms. My goodness, she does NOT like having her clothes changed! What was worse, was that I immediately took the dress OFF of her so as to not give her the opportunity to spit up on it. It was totally a photo op, and once it was done, she got back into her jammies.

Gracie is doing just great! She eats ALL THE TIME, and when she's not eating, she is sleeping. The night before last she slept from midnight to 6 a.m. Last night she slept from 11 - 3, and 4 - 8 a.m., so she's just about got sleeping through the night mastered. I am still pretty tired from the nights of being up, and just regular recovery from the birth, but I'm starting to feel more and more like my old self. Last night I was so tired that I guess I didn't hear the huge clap of thunder, or Jack crying, or Jeff bringing Jack into our bed in the middle of the night. All I know is that when Grace finally woke me up at 3, Jack was in bed with us!

We have better news to report with Anne. We talked with her last night for the first time since she left, and things went much better. We were able to iron out a few issues, and there were some definite sounds of repentance that were not there before. We love her, and we will take her at her word, and in the meantime, we will be looking for the fruit of change in her life to know whether or not her repentance is genuine. Please continue to pray for her. We miss her every day.

Well, I better run. We're going to town tonight to buy Jack a sandbox! Oh, and in case you hadn't looked recently, I uploaded some new pictures to my facebook page.

I keep looking at all these pictures of these adorable new babies and keep wishing the next 2.5 months will hurry up and be over with so I can have my little one in my arms.

I am so happy for you and she is just as cute as can be.
