We Have the Power -- NOT (Guest Post)

Maria called me this morning and asked me to give everyone an update since the power is out and they do not know when it will be back on. I believe she said the generator is working, but that the internet is still out.

Ellie Aimana is doing fine and is currently sleeping. When Joshua and I got to see her this morning around 3:45 CST, she was giggling, sticking her tongue out, and very animated. She is teething and according to Maria, dealing with the issues of that. She has not been very fussy as a result of this, but is experiencing the side effects. She is eating some solid foods: rice and bananas. This was about the extent of our conversation as Maria is a little tired.

She has indicated that she is going to try and go to sleep since Ellie is sleeping. She has not been able to write or upload any pictures, but will do so as soon the internet comes back up.

Thanks for all your prayers, posts and concerns. Their luggage arrive about 3o to 45 minutes before they left to get Ellie.
