    We are on the mend! Finally.

    As many of you know, Benjamin has had some serious skin issues with his eczema the last couple of weeks and because of it, hasn't been sleeping very well at night. Mike and I were at the point of desperation yesterday when we went for our sixth doctor appointment related to his skin. The doctor gave us a plan of action to not only fix his skin but to get him to sleep through the night once again. Well, we started our regimen last night and we already saw an improvement. Benjamin only woke up 3 times last night!! I think I see a light at the end of this tunnel.....

    Other than a serious lack of sleep lately, we are all doing great! During the day Benjamin is smiley and laughs all of the time. He is really doing well on his tummy and can actually sit by himself for a short period of time. Mike put his highchair together this weekend so we could start to eat at the dining room table again like human beings! This way, Benjamin can sit up high with us and enjoy our company! We won't be using the chair for solid foods for a while, but he enjoys playing with all of its toys and musical features!

    It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just over one week away. We are really looking forward to our visit to Illinois and can't wait to dig into that turkey and stuffing!!
