One Night

I have been given a wonderful gift - one night of uninterrupted sleep!  This has not happened since January, when Chris and I took shifts in the tiny rooms at the other hospital after surgery.  This time, he is taking on his first daddy-only chemo night.  Since we got unlucky in the double room where only one parent may sleep over, I got to come home.  No baby, no dog, not even sharing the bed!  I'm going to try to relax and get a good night's rest so that I am refreshed and ready to handle the impending stress of post-chemo baby.

Before I go, just want to send out another thank you to those who have sent letters and gifts to us, and to Matt and little Ethan, who brought us dinner a few nights back.  Scarlett hasn't been feeling very photo-friendly lately, but I did manage to get a shot of her dressed in her funky tights and on a lovely quilt (each of the squares are cross-stitch blocks made by people around the country).
"Mom, really?  Are we done here?"
There are still many items I would like to get photos of her modeling - hopefully soon!  We are so grateful for all your support.

Aw, I just love her sweet little cute self! Awesome tights! :) I'm glad you are going to get some rest. Hope all goes well after this round of chemo. Lots of hope and good thoughts from the Meadows in FL. <3

Oh, she is just so precious. Lucky you - I couldn't sleep all night long even if I wanted to! Doesn't matter how well the little man is sleeping - I am programmed to wake up every three to four hours, even if I NEED a solid night's sleep.

Scarlett is such a trooper. She is adorable in her dress! I want to kiss those little chubster cheeks all over! That quilt is wonderful. I hope you were able to get some much needed rest. Thinking of you all today.
Be Brave, Be Strong, Keep Fighting
Love Christina and Kaitlyn.

Scarlett is days younger than eli. He has no teeth yet and still eats every 3 hours ay night! So in a lot of ways, scarlett is more advanced than he is! Just thought that'd brighten your day. I know its not a competition, but still.
