Small miracles happen every day. Last night, Landon went to bed at midnight and slept until the sun was out. Karen and I woke up in tiny panics every few hours because we are so used to his crying. Those were some of the most beautiful hours of sleep I've ever had the pleasure of sleeping. We handled a small fussy episode shortly after six and then we slept again, all the way until ten. This restful night could not have come at a better time as we were both struggling to make it through the day yesterday. Maybe Landon has decided we passed the test and it's time to give us a break. We can hope.
With my semester finals coming this next week, I may be pressed for time in the evenings. Given the situation, I apologize if the blog gets a bit abbreviated each night for the next week or so. I will do my best to give a full update but the writing will likely be a bit more concise and direct. That being said, the half hour to an hour I spend writing these comments are some of the most relaxing minutes of my day. You've all become an outlet for my frustration and a megaphone for our triumphs and that is such a blessing to have in my life.

Thank you all for being the sparks that keep our spirits alight.
