Ellie Jo's getting old enough to smile on purpose. It is so awesome! We love getting reaction to what we are doing. She's so stinkin cute. She's starting to show more personality. Another thing that she's just starting to do and we're crossing our fingers will last is sleeping more during the day. She's still awake at night time for the most part but before it seemed like she was awake all day and night. Now she's at least sleeping during the day so that Sarah can get some rest as well. The doctor said that Ellie Jo is healthy and good.
Sarah has to go back to work in February and isn't looking forward to it. She says that alot has changed and feels like she has to be trained again when she gets there. We hoping that the age old method will work so that we are the parents to our own daughter. So Joe will go to school while Sarah watches the baby and when Joe comes home from school he'll watch the baby while Sarah goes to work. Not sure how well it's going to work. But we're hoping it works with flying colors. Cross your fingers.
School is going alright for Joe. He's a junior now and isn't in a hurry to get done. don't get me wrong . He wants to be done right now but when he tries to go too fast his grades suffer. So he's taking his time. He has an interview to get into the education department next week so cross your fingers for that too.
Over all everything is pretty fabulous.
