In the meantime, we are doing well on the home front. We have continued to be blessed with meals, offers of help, encouraging notes, visits, and phone calls. It has made such a huge difference for us. I seem to have recovered from my 'mean mommy' day or two at the beginning of the week and we are back to hitting our stride. I was able to get some great advice from a phone conversation with Scott over at the National Center for Biblical Parenting (have I mentioned how much I LOVE their stuff???) and we put it into practice today quite literally. By the end of today, I was already seeing some progress which is always encouraging. I'm curious how tomorrow will play out but today's success has me feeling upbeat about it all.

We are keeping busy to try to pass the time. Not that that is hard with four kiddos in the house! I am still trying to get nesting projects done, but the progress is smaller and not as rewarding as the first few things were. Oh well, progress is progress :)
B.J. and Liliana and Mom are still doing well. Liliana has started having trouble with sleeping and I am guessing it has to do with all of the changes she is going through and maybe a bit of grieving as well. You can pray for that. We have gotten to Skype - usually twice a day and that has helped. I get to just chat with her (as much as you can chat on a camera with a toddler) and watch her play. She loves the hat I made her and wanted to sleep with it last night. She calls it her 'mama hat'. I love it!!!
