God has blessed us with such a good baby. She's such a little sweetheart, very easy going - just like her daddy. :) She's been doing just great, she's on a 3hr feeding schedule and growing like a weed. We had our 2 month doctor's visit this week and she's already 11 pounds (chubby, just like her momma!! haha). The only issues she's having is she spits up quite a bit, and rarely poops. I honestly never thought I'd talk so much about poop, but once you've got a little one you've got to pay attention to everything. She only poos just about every 12 days! I talked to our pediatrician about it and she told me to start feeding her an ounce or two of Apple/Pear juice and see if that helps. I'm supposed to call her by this Thursday, and if she hasn't "regulated" it might be something more serious. So, it sounds strange, but please pray for poop!! :) Other than that she's just amazingly perfect. She's doing so well at sleeping through the night, she usually sleeps about 5-6.5 hours, then eats, then sleeps another three! We're very lucky, I know.
Since April Ben has been an intern at our church. It's been such an awesome experience. It's been really challenging for him, but with each new task that he feels completely wrong for God has really equipped him. It's been so neat to see. On Monday he went with the other leaders in the church to the Missouri Baptist Convention. He said that the convention was interesting, but more than that he really enjoyed spending time getting to know other leaders. He came home really challenged, but encouraged.
We spent Halloween at my brother's place and, of course, had a blast. Atalie was a bunny and their puppies were a cop and a prisoner, they were too cute. We pretty much just stayed inside, watched a movie and made ourselves sick off of the candy. There weren't that many trick-or-treaters... it had to go somewhere!
We're actually going to be moving soon! To Colorado!! haha, just kidding, but we are moving, just to a new apartment though. We're in a one bedroom townhouse now, and we found a really nice 2 bedroom condo that would end up being just about the same amount of rent that we're paying now. It's just one story, which will be nice once Atalie starts getting around, and it's 1200sq feet! We, of course, would love to buy a house, but we don't have hardly anything for a down payment and it would be nice for Ben to have a job where the money is a bit more stable. We're pretty excited about the condo though.
Well, that's pretty much it, as far as I can remember. I'll try to do a bit better about actually writing something. :)

I know I'm not a mom, but I pray for poop, too. Having to poop while you're running is not fun, so I pray that I poop before I leave the house!
