The shirt says it all...

What do you think??? Looks like we have a defensive back on our hands at this rate of growth!

Thanks for the well wishes for Ellie, too. She is much better today and has eaten a little bit. Brian asked her if she wanted something special that sounded good to her to eat today. She thought about it for a bit....got a smile on her face....and proclaimed..."A DOUGHNUT!" Brian went out to get her one...and it is still sitting in the box on the counter. She isn't 100% yet...but maybe she will tackle it tonight. We thank you for your get-well prayers!

Oh, and Ferber night 2 went well. Reid was up 2 times...but each time, I was able to put his music on in his crib that he likes so well, walk out the room, and he was done crying in less than 30 seconds. I am still having to get up.....but at least he is settling himself quickly. One of these days, I hope he can do it all alone without me!!!! Keep praying!

Hey There! I don't know if Reid's still having a problem sleeping through the night or not, but I thought I would share what worked for Wylie. When I would put her down I would also put a tippy cup of water with her (the kind that don't leak). I figure a lot of people wake up thirty in the middle of the night and my kids still every night have a glass of water on their night stand. Well, I don't know if that helped or not, but I know its hard on a mom (you) when you can't get a good nights sleep. Hope you had a happy new year and I hope Ellie gets to feeling better.

I hope Ellie continues to feel better and you keep it away from the rest of the family! Glad to hear Reid is doing better, you will feel amazing once you can get a full nights sleep! Would love to get together once everything quiets down.

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
