This might be short... or longer if our little guy takes a longer nap :)
We are doing well and got a FULL night of sleep last night! M slept from 8:15pm until 5:00am! We were both in bed before 9:00 too so we more or less got a full night of sleep! Yes, he did wake up and cry many times during the night but went back to sleep easily. If you know me well you know that my body longs to sleep from 2:00am until 9:00 in a dream world so I have to train my body to a new reality!
Two night ago was our roughest night as M was UP at 12:30 and really didn't sleep much after that.. I was so tired yesterday and I decided it might be time to start drinking coffee :)
Dr visits have been going well and we are impressed with everyone we meet with. MAJOR bummer that the "samples" we collected were not deemed good enough and we have to recollect them! NOT looking forward to this... AT ALL!!! Hopefully Brandon and I will be able to collect them together so that M doesn't scream as we scrape and mix and clean! So ready to find out if there are parasites and hoping to deal with less and less poo as the days continue! Speaking of poo, he was in outfit number 5 before lunch yesterday due to explosions! Poor guy!
Other news: I forgot to update you all on the Gift of Adoption grant. We were able to use it to help pay for the tickets and we are so so thankful for Gift of Adoption! Yes, grant processes are a lot of work, but we were very blessed by 2500.00 so the work is worth it! We continue to be in awe of how God provides. The check came as we returned from ET and today the airfare bill arrived! In this adoption we have never had a surplus, but EVERY time something needs to be paid, the money is ready! Yes, God loves adoption!!!
I need to run, sorry for anything that doesn't make sense!
