Back in Marquette


Lindsay and I are both back in Marquette. Lindsay came down yesterday, and I came in this morning. I worked a long day yesterday, so I decided to just come down today.

Willow is still doing good. I didn't catch her weight today, but yesterday she was up to 5 lbs. 4 oz. It seems like she's growing as fast as the spring time flowers. Lindsay has tried breastfeeding a couple of times the last two days with mixed results.
Sometimes Willow's all about it, and other times she could care less. Her nurse today said again how one day she's just going to take off. She said it often happens in a matter of a couple days. So I guess we just have to be patient and be happy she's healthy and growing.

Tonight we are going to go out to eat with Ellen's parents, Nate and Lauren. Should be a good time. After that we are going to go to a concert of a couple of bands we really enjoy seeing. Should be a fun night, and we already have a baby sitter in place :)

We both have to head back tomorrow. I'm working all next week, but Lindsay is only working Monday and Tuesday and then she'll be down here for a week straight. She's quite excited about this.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend, and thanks for all the comments on the blog and cards we've been recieving.

See ya,

Linds, Josh, and Willow,
It sounds like everything is going great for you in Marquette. I am glad you are getting out tonight to have some fun! Linds, you are looking very maternal; darling photo of you standing and holding the babe! You are also looking quite thin; keep on hitting those desserts! I am sure the nurses are right about the breast feeding. One day little Willow will latch on and be good to go. Believe me when I tell you that you will instantly become her new BF!!! Have a good rest of the weekend and safe travels back and forth. Love you all!

Lisa, Scott, Nicholas, Ellen

Hi Willow,
So good to see you in your big girl cloths. Mom and dad look pretty happy about your progress. Keep up the good work. I can tell you can do no wrong so you, as I did, will rap your parents around your little finger. It's so nice to see another little girl like I was and getting so much love and of course getting very spoiled in the process. You'll be able to keep it up your whole life--it's wonderful, just wait and see.
Take care and hope to meet you soon, face to face.
Love, Linda
