The Bun slept pretty solid last night. She only stirred a handful of times and was able to console herself back to sleep without intervention all but two of those times.

I took care of Ella this morning, and shortly after her feed, she gifted me with a significant diaper. She’s had a few blowouts recently and this one was close too. I think what saved it was the fact that we just graduated her to a size 4 diaper. Man…what a GOOD time that was cleaning things up: Her, the bed, the sheets, her, clothes, her. No one can accuse me of being afraid of a little poop festival =).

It was still pretty cold today. Our thermometer indicated 23 degrees, which seemed a bit low to me. I stepped outside to see for myself, and I figured out why the temperature was maybe off a bit. One side of the railing on our deck was encased in a half inch of ice, including the thermometer. That may explain the extra cold reading.

Needless to say that we spent most of the day inside. Grandma finished up some sewing for Ella, Tina took care of the Bun, and I was able to work on a few geek projects I’ve been itching to do.

Tina and Grandma went to the mall late in the afternoon and while they were out, it started snowing again. Took me a bit by surprise, but it’s Colorado, so you really need to expect anything.

After Ella’s bath (which is always filled with major drama), the Bun spent some time cuddling on Grandma. Grandma had a good time making faces and getting Ella to laugh and smile.

Praise God for all the progress Ella has made. I know there are times when we want things to move along faster, but our growth and progress are perfected in God’s timing. What a blessing our sweet girl is. Thank you for all the love, prayer, and support.

Ella, It sounds like you and Dad had a good day. Keep up the steady progress and spring will be here soon. You look like you had a great time with Grandma and I know she was thrilled to visit you. Catch you later. Love,Grandpa!!!!!!!!

Wonder what that thermometer read this morning? We had one say 14° and one 24° – even splitting the difference, that’s COLD. Nothing like a little Grandma-love to warm things up, though – what a precious pair they are. Throw in some good sleeping and good pooping – gotta praise God for it all =) Love you guys. XOXOXO

Nice to see Grandma with the baby. One of these days spring will come to Colorado. You wait and see!
