I am worried that Rachel is getting a bad rap. While it is true that she screams about half of the day and you haven't seen a temper tantrum until you've seen Rachel lay on the floor and scream. But when she's not screaming she is actually a very, cute, sweet and extremely pleasant little girl. She also has the cutest giggle.

So tonight I asked Kirk to video Rachel in one of her favorite places - on my lap, with a book. One of her favorite activities lately is to point to everything in a book that she knows, page after page after page.

Sorry the snipet is short and for all the background screaming - Julianna and Alyssa were acting more like Rachel tonight then Rachel :) They would not be appeased without being held so they had to stay in the hallway so we could hear Rachel. Another good reason the video is short - welcome to my life.

On a side note, I am once again asking for prayer for a friend of mine. For some reason all of my friends have decided that Hotel Fairfax would be a nice place to visit. I think they were envious of my way cool hospital room that I spent 6 weeks in and wanted it to give it a try. While my friend Laura and her daughter Ellie are now all home and doing well, my friend Kristy has decided to take her place. At 25.3 weeks pregnant with baby boy #3 she was admitted to the hospital today for severe bleeding. While he would be considered viable at this point our hope is that Kristy would be able to carry him for at least 3 more weeks - I'm praying for more. Sounds like another trip back to my old "home". Such memories.

But I can't end this post without posting a great picture Kirk took of the girls all together and all smiling!! WHAT are the chances??
