For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Happy Easter!

We've had a wonderful Easter Sunday!  Sean made breakfast, and then we headed to church.  We were even able to snap a few pictures before we left.  It was great to be in the house of the Lord celebrating the resurrection of our savior.  Unfortunately, I missed the sermon.   They were shorthanded in Sam's room, and the nursery director asked me to fill in.  It was CRAZY!  Sam was confused why I was in there, and he sure didn't understand where Daddy was.  There were several new kids who cried and wanted to be held.  Just about all of them decided to poop the one hour they were in the nursery.  Still, I was happy to help.  We came home, and then after Sam's nap, we headed to Longhorn for a late lunch with Beverly, Frank, Mawmaw, and Rodney.  Then, Beverly and Frank came back to our house to hang out with Sam.  Nana found Sean's old Easter basket, and she brought it over filled with goodies for Sam.  He had never even seen plastic eggs, so he wasn't sure what to do with them.  He sure was surprised when he found candy in them. We had to show him how to hunt for them, but he got the hang of it pretty quick.  Now we're just enjoying the rest of our day together.

I would like to document that I'm 36 weeks pregnant today.  I went to the doctor Tuesday, and Luke weighed in at a whopping 6 lbs. 11 ounces.  If that is accurate, then he is HUGE, and I'm in for it.  His head is also in the 95th percentile, just like Sam.  I was dilated 1 cm. and 70% effaced.  Dr.Otey expects me to go until about 38 weeks, but we'll see.  It's getting close.


He still can't figure out why there is another crib in the house.


















Can you tell he is obsessed with hats?!

Fun Weekend

We've had such a productive weekend so far.  And it's a good thing, because baby Luke is coming soon.  I had Friday off, and Sam and I played most of the morning.  I also cleaned out Luke's room.  There were still several things that I hadn't put away and pictures I needed to hang or get rid of.  Sam had a big time with all of his old things. He tried to fit himself in the baby carrier and the Bumbo, and it was hilarious.  Today, Sean put Luke's crib together, mowed the yard, washed the cars, and even cooked supper.  He wins the best husband award for sure.  Sam wanted to be by his side the while time.  Tomorrow we will celebrate Easter at church, and then Beverly and Frank are coming over.













Genise took Sam for a ride on the four-wheeler.  He had a big time.

Sunday night fun

I don't usually post twice in one day, but I snapped a few pictures of Sam before supper, and they were too cute not to post.



Which hat do I choose?  He went back and forth between these two hats.


Sam stood in front of the fan outside Bobby's shop.

Fun with Pop and Linda

We've had such a good weekend.  It started Friday afternoon in the carport.  Sean and I sat there while Sam played with all his toys.  Then, Saturday morning, Pop and Linda arrived.  Sam opened his Easter basket, Sean grilled hamburgers, and we spent most of the day outside playing with Sam. Today was church, lunch with the Longs, and more playing outside.  Great weekends like this one make it hard to go back to work on Monday.  

Saturday morning...They were watching some sort of car show.

This was after his nap.  He didn't sleep long because he knew
Pop and Linda were here.

Bubbles!

He had to have a taste.


No day is complete without a hat.

He got some underwear in his Easter basket, and Sean put them on
after his bath last night.  He liked them!
