At the moment everything is going well. Baby Grace is turning out to be incredible. She has been sleeping through the night for weeks and everything she does makes us smile. We have really enjoyed watching her little personality emerge. So far we know she is picky, determined, she has a bit of a sense of humor, and she loves kisses. As of right now we have about 200 pictures of the first two months of her life. If you do the math that is about 25 pictures a week, if we keep up at this rate we will probably need to by some type of digital mass storage device to keep her life so well documented.

Our lives have also taken a big turn now that I have been accepted to medical school. I will be starting at ATSU in Arizona in July. I am super excited about the program because it fits what I want to do with my career perfectly. The school's goal is to train doctors that will work with the under served communities. We are all very excited about this since it means all that work actually paid off. I guess I don't have to worry about finding a job and now we can look forward to living a lavish life on student loans and government grants. In reality we do have a lot to be thankful for right now, life has been good to us.

Gracie is SO ADORABLE, I see a lot of Melanie in her. Congrats on getting into Medical school, I'm sure that it relieves a lot of stress while at the same time adding new things to worry about.
