I just received a phone call from my manager to let me know that my position has been eliminated. Thank you so much for your prayers and concern. I ask, again, that you pray for us. I'm feeling a whirlwind of emotions right now.

All sales reps have been told to wait for a phone call between 11:00-1:00 tomorrow to hear whether or not they will still have a job or will be let go. Tomorrow's the big day. My manager will call me with the news. If you think of us, we'd appreciate any of your prayers. I'll write tomorrow with the news.

I haven't posted about this because I didn't want to be "Debbie Downer", but I'd really appreciate some prayer. Pfizer has been announcing cutbacks in the higher ranks and my day is coming this Friday. I've been updating my resume and job searching online just in case. I have a peace about things. I know God will provide for us...He ALWAYS has. I'm nervously excited for what He has in store for us and for me with my career. I'm asking that you please pray for us in whatever way you feel led, and, if you would, please put my friend Tiffany's name in there, too. We were hired at the same time, and she has a son just about a month older than Henry. I'll keep you updated.
Other than that, things are going well. Judy is here for one more week, and then she flies out on Saturday. :-( She's been AMAZING! She's cooked, cleaned, and taken such good care of Henry since I headed back to work. Jared's been studying, of course, with school stuff and working full time, too. We've arranged for a lady in our neighborhood to take care of Henry when Judy leaves, so that will be an interesting transition. I'll post pictures later. Please pray for us in the coming days.
Alison made a comment, so I decided to edit this post with Henry's latest stats. He went to the dr. for his 4 month check up on the 17th. Yes, Ali, he's still long and lean! Henry weighs in at a whopping 13.5 lbs, which is the 25th percentile! ;-) As far as height goes, he's 26 in. long, which is the 85th percentile! Long and lean in deed! He's doing so well with breastfeeding that we aren't in any hurry to start solid foods, but have been given the go ahead from the pediatrician whenever we feel ready. He's starting to laugh! I have to resist the temptation to tickle him every time I change his diaper. I just love hearing that little laugh! He thinks its hysterical when someone touches his feet to his face, too. He's such a joy in our lives. We are forever grateful for our little gift and how healthy he's been. We love our little, "Too".
