March was a month full of fun and change.  It started with Solomon and I going on a trip to CO while the kids stayed with mom and dad.  It was our first childless trip in 7 years!  We had a blast getting to know the area, seeing old friends, and meeting new ones.  A few weeks later was Spring Break.  The kids and I went to IL while Solomon went back to CO to look at houses.  The kids and I got to spend a lot of time with Dad as he was off the whole time.  It has been a long time since I have had the much time with my Daddy and I loved it!  Ellie also turned 18 months old!  She is such a joy!  She is starting to talk more and becoming more independent.  On the way up to IL, the boys rode part of the way in mom's van, and she was looking around the car and started saying "Boy? Boy?"  She was looking for her brothers!   She has also started to say her own name very clearly and calls Khaliel "weil".  She is 19lbs 4 oz and 29 1/2 inches, both under the 3rd percentile.  The doctor was concerned about her not gaining enough weight.  We had stopped nursing for 2 weeks, but had to go back to nursing to get her to gain weight again.
