Hey Daddy, We Miss You!
Hey Daddy! We miss you! Ellie woke up around 12:30 am (right before you texted us that you had landed). She took her bottle and then stayed in bed with me :) I needed company (no really I just fell asleep and was too lazy to take her back to her room - that's what you normally tell me to do). She woke up again at 4:30 and I think I might have woken her up and she was SOOO upset...screaming. I had to shut the door to our room so your mom wouldn't wake up. Anyway I tried feeding her the rest of the bottle and she took it and eventually went to sleep. But I was wide awake! We both ended up sleeping until around 7:30. We talked in bed for a little while, then changed her diaper and played in the living room. Your mom went for a walk early so she was just getting back as we started playing. I was supposed to be hearing from Marty today to start working for him so I was afraid to leave because I wasn't sure what I would need to be doing. I waited until lunch got a little info and then waited some more....Needless to say we never left the house and when we finally could it was storming. So I am stir crazy right now! We had a good day though. Ellie is trying so hard to crawl. Look at her in this video! She is starting to fuss but all day she was working on it and she start inch worming herself over to me. She can do it! Can you believe it!?! She has also started sucking in her cheeks like a fish face! It's so funny. I'll try and get a picture of it and post it. We really miss you! I have been showing her your picture on the calendar and our wedding picture (I don't know if that works or not, but it's worth a shot!) She ate some rice cereal for lunch and your mom got to watch her and it was really funny. Bathtime was the same as always- lots of splashing and smiling. And as always when you are gone, she knows something is up and she won't go to bed on time. She stayed up til after 9 again. She finally settled down, falling asleep on my chest and I put her down and she is currently sleeping. I have a feeling it will be an early wake up for more food since she only ate 1/2 her bottle. We are guessing you couldn't call us because you had such a busy day and probably didn't get a change to buy a calling card? I keep looking at the clock and wondering what time it is there and what you are doing. Right now probably sleeping. It's 10:30 here so I am thinking it's 4:30 or 5:30 there? We hope you are getting some rest and eating good food - you know I am concerned with what you are eating. I can't wait to hear from you and we are checking the blog constantly to see if any pictures have been added. We love you and miss you and can't wait for you to come home!!!! -Libby & Ellie
