I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since my last post!

Wow, I really do need to post more.

Sarah is now 3 months old. She is getting much better at sleeping through the night. She normally sleeps at least 5 or 6 hours. There've even been nights like last night where she slept 8 hours! Developmentally, she seems to be right on track. She's smiling and giggling along with her babling. She likes to try to sit up and can sit pretty well when supported. She also likes to try standing. When we went in for her 2 month appointment,she was 14 lbs and about 23 inches. The PA thought her soft spot might be too small so she wanted to see her again at 3 months. She is now 15 pounds!!! She's also been a little sick :( She has a bit of a runny nose, but it's all clear, and a bit of a cough from the post nasal drip. She had a bit of a fever and she pulls on her ears some, so I think she might be teething.

About a month ago, we found out that Josh was selected for orders to the Horn of Africa. Unfortunately, it seems like the Navy is out of money so they can't give him written orders yet. So we're not sure when he'll be leaving or how long he'll be gone. It could be anywhere from 8 to 14 months. And that may not include any training which will probably be at least 3 months before he goes. It's going to suck for him to be gone for a year or more. But the good news is that I won't have to move for a while longer and he'll be getting extra pay and all his pay will be tax free while in a combat zone. I'm also glad that he'll be in Africa, where he'll be fighting pirates and doing humanitarian missions, as opposed to Iraq or Afghanistan.

Here's a video of Sarah watching her mobile. I've attached some pics but you can find more here.
