i took the little man to the doctor this morning to celebrate his 4 month birthday... by getting a couple shots. but he was a trooper and only cried for a few seconds. he's now 16 pounds and 26 inches long... basically, a big boy.

our nights have severely gone downhill, however. he had a growth spurt at around 3 months and he just doesn't have his nights back to normal yet. we're planning on putting his pack n play downstairs tonight and just leaving him alone... b/c I NEED SLEEP! we'll see if i don't chicken out :)

Good luck with the whole "cry it out" method! I hope you are better at it than I am!

Ben's been giving us stretches of 7-9 hours, but those stretches start at 7pm. Last night he slept 10 hours, so I am hoping that the peas we fed him were the reason!

Caleb is going to try and get the Director of Security position. All the missionaries live at Ukarumpa (I may have missed up the spelling) and the translators go out into the villiages. Caleb would be working with a team of nationals to provide security for the center.

I would get to be a stay at home mom!! (I'm sure I would use my accounting skills once I get settled there, though!)

We would be going as support staff....but the whole raising money thing is intimidating to me!
