Must be something in the water...another baby arrived yesterday! Arianna Alberti came into the world at 3:17pm at Virtua Hospital in Voorhees. She weight 6 pounds 8 ounces. Her mom is Sandra Alberti, who is Deb's sister. That makes us Aunt and Uncle again! Sandra was a reader of the Deuce Daily and was one of the eight pregnant women who read it every day so we will add Arianna's picture to the collection. I am gathering pictures of all eight babies born during the Daily's 7 month existence and will post them on a tribute page for everyone to see.

Meanwhile, Elijah came home early from school with a tummyache. His teacher said he didn't "look right" and said he had a tummyache so I brought him home to his mom and sister for the rest of the afternoon. He ended up eating a four course meal for lunch with TWO brownies so I guess he's feeling better. :-) Meanwhile, Hannah continues to get used to being alive. She gives up two-four hour sleep sessions each night. The key is getting her to take her last evening bottle as late as possible so that she only wakes us ONCE during the night. Last night she ate at 9 and got up at 1 and 4:30. Not ideal. The key is getting her to eat at 7:30. THERE YOU GO!! 7:30...then she eats again around 11. Then night night!! Up at 3 or so and then up for work at 6 or 7! That's the ticket. It's a matter of structuring the schedule so we get there. We are working on it for sure. She's a joy when she's not sleeping!! She sleeps around 20 hours a day still. Tomorrow is her 2 week checkup! It's my late night here at work so I will be able to go to the appointment too.

That's all for now! Please keep checking the site because there are more goodies in store! Also, remember to keep sending me e-mail
