Officially Spring

Thank you for all the nice congratulations. It was hard to wait to share our news; we really can't wait to meet our newest little munchkin. I know we will be very busy, especially at first, but I think it will be good for Gabe to have a little brother or sister so close in age to play with. We are about to start looking at houses again, this time with a lot more urgency! Hopefully that sense of urgency will be the push we need to make it work out this time. I am trying to be cautiously optomistic!

As we await the arrival of our littlest bean, we keep ourselves very busy. The weather has been beautiful, so we've taken lots of neighborhood walks. Last weekend's heat wave brought out all our baseball gloves too, amongst other things. I look forward to a day when we can all play ball together. Of course it's fun to watch Gabe run around now too, but I think we might need a good fenced in yard with the house... he doesn't go quite as fast as Tommy used to (yet), but he does like to explore, so he sure keeps me going!

Our Little Bean

That's right! We're about to be a family of five! I think I'll have to stop calling Gabe "Baby Gabe" and "Peanut" (by November)!

Easter Morning

I somehow managed to accidentally delete all the photos that were on the memory card mid-Easter Egg Hunt, so some of the best from the morning were lost and I had to recreate a couple!

...Gabe is currently sleeping in a playpen in the living room (long story), and it's a good thing he was the last one to wake up because the Easter Bunny hid one of Tommy's eggs within Gabe's reach, and even though I went out to get him almost instantly, he already had two pieces of egg in his playpen and was holding out a piece of candy wrapper in one hand and the candy in the other. I think I caught him just in time!

They both loved hunting for (all 40) eggs. Of course Gabe especially loved the animal crackers too. Tommy was very sad at bed time that Easter was over, but he has lots of time for more excitement this week (Spring Break)!

I hope you enjoyed your celebrations!

May you take today to reflect on and revel in the incredible beauty of God's love and gift of the Savior.
