Celebrate!

This has been such a great week! Ever since Chloe was a week old, she has been sleeping in her swing for all naps and nightime sleeping. We found that if she slept in her crib, she would wake up frequently and was not able to fall back asleep on her own. We had been afraid to try to switch her to the crib, because we value our sleep and were not ready to have a few nights of crying and no sleep to get her acclimated to her crib. Anyway, yesterday, Chloe took a nap in her crib at Grandma Elaine's house! This gave us the confidence to try her in her crib. And guess what? She slept for nine hours straight in her crib! We were amazed when we woke up at 7:00 this morning and realized that she had slept all night! She then took a three hour nap in her crib a few hours later. We are so proud of her! Here is a picture of her sleeping in her crib! She does not like lying on the wedge, so we use it to keep her feeling snuggled up close. We are also excited about the birth of our new neice--Ella. She was born a week ago and is such a great baby! The picture below was from Chloe and Ella's first play date. I am sure there will be many more to come! It is going to be so fun to watch the girls grow up together, as they are only two months apart in age. Chloe looks like she is doing a little dance in this picture! The other big news that we are thrilled about is that we finally found a home to purchase! We have been looking for over 6 months and finally found a house that we love! We are currently in escrow and will hopfully move in May. We will keep you posted as we go through all the hoops of home buying. In the picture, you will see the huge redwood tree in the front yard. It is so close to the house that we are nervous it will cause damage. Once we are the owners of this beautiful house, we are planning to have the tree removed. Know anyone who wants to buy a redwood tree?
