**This just in..... Anna decided to save up some quality projectile poop and pee for dad this morning. Hehe. It was great.

Usually she likes her baths, but today she wasn't having any part of it (expect under the faucet, she loves!)
Well the call came. Gary got the job at Calvin College! What an answer to so many prayers. Sometimes we felt that this day wouldn't come for quite some time, but the Lord is right there with us, urging us to trust in Him even when we're getting impatient. He starts on November 26. He'll get full benefits with 4 weeks vacation and 1 week at Christmas. They are very family oriented and seems to be a great place to be a part of. Gary will be done at GFS at the end of this week or mid next week, so we'll have some extra time together as a family and be able to be in Chicago for a few extra days. We're looking forward to that.
I started doing some work from home. A few things to work out, but so far it's going alright. Anna certainly takes up a lot of my day, but during naps I'm able to get some things done. Anna has only given us a couple hard nights so far, otherwise she is eating a lot and sleeping a lot, but is still staying awake longer. She's filling out little by little, but is still a peanut.
Well back to work before the little pistol wakes up again. :)

Gary said that's my scowl on her face. Hehe.
How can you not love this face!?
Well we got to the 2 week mark already. We went to the doctor today and everything looked great. She was supposed to be back at her birth weight by this point and we're a whopping 6 pounds 10 ounces (1 ounce heavier than when she was born)! She's 20 inches long now, growing right now a half inch a week. So obviously I'm doing something right. :) She definitely lets you know when she's hungry or needs her diaper changed, but otherwise she's wide eyed or soundly sleeping.Last night was not the best of nights. She wanted to eat about every hour and wouldn't go to sleep till about 4. She slept till I got her up at 8:30, so that was good but it made for a very emotional and frustrating night. So it's quite possible we're hitting a growth spurt right now.
Otherwise she's wonderful. She starting to develop a personality (more Gary's right now, than mine, hehe), she gives so many facial expressions, it's hilarious. She can go from a smily smirk to the face where she is just going to wail. It's great. She's filling out in her face and her little arms and legs are getting there. We're so excited to see what each day and week brings.
I'm going to start helping my office do some work from home next week. They are quite busy. Gary is still waiting to hear back on his interview from Calvin and the one way back from Gentex. It's trying, but we know the right opportunity will present itself.
Well that's about all for right now. Hope you keep enjoying the pictures!
