Did you get up? No, did you?

For the last week Mark and I have been given a wonderful gift.... the gift of sleep. Gabriel has been sleeping between 7-10 hours in a single chunk! He was falling asleep around 7:30 or 8pm and then getting up around 3am to eat. Suddenly, he decided he wanted to be awake until 10pm, which I wasn't happy about. But, when he slept until 5am I decided I could handle his being up until 10 thing. It is amazing how precious an uninterupted nights sleep becomes when you go without for so long. I didn't really think I was capable of functioning on so little sleep, but it is suprising what you can do when there isn't any other choice. I fully expect that this pattern of sleeping through the night will not hold indefinately, but while it does last, we'll take full advantage.

We're getting ready to go trick-or-treating tomorrow! I can't wait to put Gabriel's costume on him. We've carved pumkins and decorated the house. We'll be sure to post lots of pictures. Now, if I can just finish this paper that is due tomorrow :).

That's not fair! After sleeping until 6am every nite for the last two weeks, Carson woke up at 3am again last nite. What's up with that?

Sarah and Mark, Debbie didn't tell me! Glenn and I are soooooooooo happy and excited for you guys. Gabe is so cute! What a special gift the Lord has blessed you with.
I wish we'd known sooner. I always ask about the 2 Sarahs when I get to talk to Debbie.
WOW are we excited to be grandparents again! It's so great to see Debbie so happy and back to being the true Debbie.
Say, would you email me some pictures of Gabe so I can add him to my special baby wall here in the house.
Again CONGRATULATIONS!!! You two deserve the best.
We are so glad that you guys are such a big part of our daughter's life! We love you so much.
