Ellie is with my parents in Georgia for the week. We have a youth beach retreat this weekend and I knew it would be to difficult if we had both kids with us. She is having a good time being spoiled by Nana and Papa. She is a little sick so it is probably good that she is not near Anna. We are amazed at how easy it is just having one child who's only 6 weeks old. We miss Ellie like crazy, but it has been nice to get some rest. We've gotten some much needed rest etc.... It has also been fun to stay out past 8:00 p.m. or go to a restaurant and eat in peace! Anna is changing everyday. It has been good for us this week to be able to spend some one on one time with her. She's now smiling often. Her first smile happened about 2 weeks ago. She is also getting to wear something besides a sleeper. I've enjoyed getting to put Ellie's jeans etc... on her. She is also sleeping longer each night! I didn't think this was ever going to happen as she was on a 3 hour schedule that she really liked! Then a couple of nights ago we started putting her to bed at 9:30 and now she is sleeping till 3:30 A.M.. It is so nice to get 6 straight hours of sleep rather than 3 or 4.
March Madness started today. Mike is extremely excited. It is one of our most favorite times of year. Mike is really happy that KU and UNC are both number one seeds. He picked KU over UNC in the finals. We are having our friends the Gurney's over tonight to watch the games. They are our friends from seminary that still live here. We have watched many games with them over the past 4 years. We always look forward to hanging out with them. Jenn is due with her second baby in 6 days. Maybe, tonights excitement will lead her to labor! Anyways, hope everyone is doing well.
