Anika meets her Grandpa and Nana

We had a great weekend. Anika got to meet her Grandpa and Nana. Alex had fun swimming in the hotel pool and having a family snowball fight in the back yard. Thanks to Dad and Suzanne for making the trip up.

Things with Anika are getting better. Last night she slept from 7:30-6:00 only waking at 10:30 and 3:30. She went to bed fairly easily each time without the grieving that we have been seeing. It has only been a little more than a month with us and she is making big progress. This morning when she woke up we put her in our bed. She looked at the door and started YELLING "bro wa" "bro wa"! She was calling Alex. :) I melted.. He was still sleeping and had a 2 hr delay to the start of school today. We told her that "brother is sleeping" acting out the sleeping complete with snoring sounds. She looked disappointed and then starting playing with her toys. SO SO CUTE!

As usual, Alex and Anika are too cute- they are a perfect brother and sister!! Looks like Anika will have a big brother protector when she gets older... :-)
