2 months old!

I'm two months old!
We can hardly believe it, but yes, our little baby is already two months old! She went to the doctor for her two month visit on her actual two month birthday. Brace yourselves, our little "Biddle" as we call her is is a whooping 12 pounds, 12 ounces and 24 inches long! That puts her in the 80th percentile for weight and the 97th percentile for height! Breastmilk is doing her well, we've got a tall one on our hands I think.
She's doing really well, such a smily little girl, so content to watch the antics of me chasing her big sister around and doing various chores. Emma and I do a lot of singing to her, which she loves, she has no doubt that "Jesus loves me" at this point!Believe it or not, Emma's jealousy has subsided and she truely has fallen in love with her little sister. When we drop Travis off at work in the mornings, he always gives her a kiss good-bye, and then goes to Chloe's side to give her one. Emma is now in the habit of reminding him, "now give Chloe a kiss". When she hasn't seen her in awhile, she get's so excited to see her again and tells everyone who will listen that it's her little sister Coee and then makes little goos at her the way I do. She's a little mommy in the making, no doubt.
On another note, some big things are happening in our lives in the near future, some of which we're not sure the direction on. We finally have our townhome in Utah under a solid contract, praise the Lord! If all goes well there, we will close by the end of the month. We are continuing in the process of building the house over by Travis's parents, but we've not yet been able to get our current house rented out to someone else for the rest of the lease. So... one of two things will happen, either we get this place rented and close on the new house November 30th or we don't get this place rented out and have to back out of the house we're building, which would make us sad. But, the one lesson that keeps getting pounded into our heads is that we are not in control, God has good things in store for us if we will only trust Him and that being good stewards of what He's entrusted us with is all we can do, the rest is in His hands.
Please do continue to pray that we get renters for this place, but more importantly, pray for God's will in all of it, that we would have peace that even if things don't work out the way we hope they do, God is in control and He loves us. "No one can snatch us out of His hand!" Amen!
We love you all, and please let us know how we can be praying for you too.
Always, Sarah
