Spring is Here!!!

Just a few springtime images from around my neighborhood:

The people who live here before planted daffodils!! Yay!!

The Trees are budding --

The bumper was sick last week, so we were grateful to get out and enjoy the warm weather.

On MyMind

When Matt and I went to California to visit our former roommate, (He and Matt are the ones skipping stones into the Pacific) I was nearly eight months pregnant with the bumper. We were full of worry and woe, our lease was up at the end of November and we still hadn't found a house. As crazy as it was, we took off on a much needed break. Sometimes, even adults need to play once in awhile. At the time I thought this would be the last bit of playtime we would have in a long time.

I was wrong.

Just the other night, Matt and I took turns trying to make the bumper laugh again.We had so much fun! It is the simplest of things that bring a sense of peace and happiness.

Little Things

Just some little things that have made me happy this week:

1. Going to church for the first time as a family: Me, my husband Matt, and our little bumper. My husband liked being in the cry room because all the crying babies were in the main sanctuary and we could actually hear the service!

2. Hearing the bumper laugh for the first time. Matt was making silly faces, and our daughter laughed. Is there anything more precious than a baby's laugh?

3. My husband marveling over the fact that a $6.00 meat loaf fed the two of us for a whole week.

4.  Trailing Matt as he showed our bumper to his co-workers. He is such proud papa!

5. Warm weather that motivated me to get out of the house.
