One Month Today!

One month ago, on my 3oth birthday, we met Jolea for the first time. It is really hard to believe that it has been a month already. She is doing great, and adjusting well. Her night terrors at night are getting better. We actually haven't had any the last 3 nights. I was beginning to wonder if I would ever get any sleep at night. She would wake us up sometimes 4 or 5 times at night just screaming and kicking like she was fighting someone in her sleep. I could usually calm her down but she really was never awake. She is finally sleeping in her bed instead of the floor, and Breanna has moved back into her room. Breanna slept with Jolea in the floor for the first few weeks home. What a great big sister! But she wasn't getting much sleep with the night terrors so I finally made her go back to her room. Pray that these night terrors are gone for good! My friends are throwing a Jolea a welcome home party on Friday night. The theme is a Royal Celebration. All the kids are dressing up like prince and princesses. I bought Jolea a beautiful little princess dress for her debut! All the details of the party are being kept a secret from us so I'm very excited to see what our friends have put together. I have also enrolled Jolea and Luke into a little preschool. They will only be going 2 days a week, and the school is right down the street from our shop, so I will be there if they need me. I'm a little nervous about leaving them both, but I really think it will be great for both of them, and they will be in the same class together. I think it will be harder on me than on them. I'll let you all know how it goes next week. Luke is very excited about it. I took some paperwork by there last week and he cried when we left because he wanted to stay. I told him we had to go get his backpack first, and he said he wanted to go get it right now. I hope he stays that excited about going.
Gotcha Day!
Jolea and her big Sis!

Hopefully the night terrors are gone and she will continue to sleep in her bed. She is just a precious little child. The welcome home party will be fun and can't wait to see pictures. Good Luck!!!!!

Can't wait to meet her tonight! I know it took Emma a couple of months to get rid of her night terrors. Please know I am praying for Jolea.
