well lil peanut,

you sure are growing. you are still measuring right along with your big sister. so you make me think you will be late in coming to greet us just like her! i’ll try to be a bit more patient this time, deal? and if you feel like, you can sure come a touch sooner than she did! mommy wouldn’t mind one. bit.!

from the outside though, we would NEVER think you were growing a touch slower than average… mommy feels quite huge most days! but who’s setting the normals anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

lizzie is excited to meet you. people in public ask her if she is going to be a big sister and she ignores them like she doesn’t know what they are saying. then we get home in private and she talks on and on about you. i love how lizzie LOVES to play peek-a-boo with you. i think you are going to be a pro at this game by 3 months old since she’s started teaching you so early.

you’ve only had the hiccups once. mommy did not like it! and couldn’t figure out why you weren’t obeying when i was telling you to hold still. you typically do obey. (i only expect the baby to be still if it’s 10pm at night or later)… then the next day other’s were talking about their babes having hiccups and i realized, oh you poor thing! you had the hiccups! so mommy took more calcium and so far, no more hiccups. ๐Ÿ™‚ sorry peanut!!!

i’m so thrilled you finally decided to show off your kicking skills to your daddy. i think he was beginning to think i was making it all up. you gave mommy a good painful whack and daddy’s eyes got huge. no need to touch my tummy to feel that one, or even be sitting in the same chair. yea, it was a big one. let’s not do those too often, k, kiddo! they aren’t fun for mommy!

have fun in there!!! it’s not so fun out here in the real world sometimes! so enjoy mommy’s tummy while you can! ๐Ÿ™‚

we are so close to being on our own.

“home owners” i think we’ll be called. yet i still feel like the bank owns us. we don’t own much of this house. we do own some – maybe ย tenth, but not much at all. yet some how we are still called “home owners”. hmm. weird.


the appraisal came in. shwoo! such a relief for them to get it back so quickly. but for what they charge… i’ll just stop there. let’s just say, it’s not expecting too much. here’s the appraisers photos. it felt weird to me. since i didn’t take them. it feels like it’s someone else’s house.

we close at the bank saturday morning or monday afternoon. thankful. i am anxious for the month of april and all of it’s bills and unknowns to be over and done with. this will be a huge sigh of relief.

i’m so thankful spring is here!

the windows are open.

the sun is shining.

lizzie is outside scooping rocks, scooping rocks and blowin bubbles. we need to bring her swingset out of storage so she can swing her lil heart out.

oh how refreshing spring is!
