Big Boy!! and Sad day

Last night was Ethan's first night going to bed without being swaddled!! He fell asleep really easy and although he cried at 2:30 and 4:30 he went back to sleep after being given his paci. He'll be two months old on the 2nd and he goes back to the doctor (and the photographer) on the 5th so there will be a weight and length update soon!
Well, right now I'm watching Oprah's show on the two year anniversary of Katrina. It is really sad and depressing and I can't help but wonder how the LA gulf coast is doing two years after Rita. I can't imagine that the countryside has healed much better than the city. I wish that their story wasn't overlooked.

Philip and I drove through New Orleans a year after Katrina and just seeing the city from the interstate was so sad to me. I always viewed New Orleans as a regal city with so much history and culture. It would break my heart to go back there and see it changed. Overall, I'm glad that Grandma and Grandpa got out when they did. I was sad at first that they weren't going to live there anymore, but after Oprah's reports on the increasing crime and decreasing health system I realize they are so better off in Houston.

Please keep the Gulf Coast in your prayers this week as they are all forced to relive the events of two years ago.

With that being said, I really can't wait to see the NFL get underway so we can watch the saints play some great football. GO SAINTS!!

I thought of you and your family several times when I saw updates on the survivors. It does not look like it will ever be the same again. Bless them all. love, Web
