Happy November 4th!

Today is Ezekiel's "real" birthday.  Today is his due date!  Happy Birthday, my little pumpkin pie!  
He weighed 5lbs 4oz today.  All his preemie clothes fit him perfectly right now.  He tried to bottle feed again today, and guess what?  He did it!  Good job Ezie!  Now they will let him do one bottle feeding a day and see how he does.  

In other news, I found this on the best website ever:

A moses basket!  (The elephant is Ezekiel's.  Daniel got it for him in Peru).  I was soo excited, for many reasons.
1- I've always thought these were really cute.
2- We didn't want to get a big old bulky, expensive crib (not just yet, anyway). 
3- We sleep on the floor (hubby says beds make his back hurt), so a basinette would be too high.
4- This was only $30!!

I love craigslist soo sooo much.  The lady I got it from said she recieved it as a gift and they never used it.  I had tried to find one at babies r'us and there was only one in the whole store- and it cost $100+  on clearance!  I'm so excited I found this one.  The next thing I want to find on craigslist is a down matress topper for our floor-bed.

Happy "real" birthday Ezekiel!!! I'm so sorry that this is a bad day with the country turning "blue" with democratic votes. :-(
Kentucky voted for John McCain, and probably Texas... still too early.
Grandpa loves seeing your pictures that your Mommy and Daddy put up online. He gets a really sweet smile across his face and says "awww". We both want to come see you so badly! But we will wait until we can hold you and sing you songs, give you hugs and tell you all about the things on the farm.

Keep growing stronger and healthier every day!
We love you!

Happy Birthday, Ezekiel!!!

Your video is great! I don't see any cake and candles for your birthday, but I'll bet that bottle tasted good. I am emailing your mommy some pictures of her when she was a little baby. She looked a lot like you!!!!! So make sure Mommy opens her email soon! Keep growing, birthday boy!

Love, Grandma L in Ohio

So glad to hear about him taking the bottle! How awesome. I love the basket; go craigslist! Ezie: Your adjusted birthday was a historic day for America. How exciting! You will grow up in a country more accepting of different skin colors and that is a good thing. We are all different and special in our own way; just like you! Kristin, Daniel, Kentucky, Texas: I know you all didn't vote for Barack Obama, but he uses the word HOPE and I can't think of a better word to inspire and put ease into the hearts of Americans. Lets give him a chance and see what he does for our country!! I love the video, so cute! Love you!

Jamie- I appreciate your optomism about Obama. :) Although he puts no ease in my heart at all, maybe the next four years will just be as bad as the last four. As long as they aren't worse, I can be a little hopeful!
