He is Risen! A heartfelt Happy Easter from our family to yours – what a beautiful day for a Jesus-centered celebration!
There was also a musical petting zoo, put on by the Country Music Hall of Fame. It was everything I had wanted our own attempt at Griffin’s birthday to be. A banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, dulcimer, autoharp, and many varieties of drums and bells were all available for small hands to touch and try out. The instructors were wonderful with Griffin and highly encouraged us to start giving him formal lessons soon.
We then made our way to church, where we allowed Griffin to be in the sanctuary for worship service. He loved it, as he has in the past, but this time there was also a children’s choir – he made the announcement afterwards that he wanted to sign up.
As for myself, here’s a belated pregnancy update:
How Far Along – 16 Weeks
Size of Baby – An Avocado
Total Weight Gain – Still -3 pounds
What I miss – Cocktails at my favorite restaurants
Cravings – I would love just one Cadbury egg, but have sworn them off since they contain nothing my body would recognize as food!
Symptoms – Migraines have gotten worse in the last few weeks. No amount of pregnancy-safe medication seems to relieve them, and they last 2-3 days at a time. Luckily, sipping on some caffeine has actually seemed to help.
Maternity Clothes – No, but I’ve been on a bit of a rampage looking for flowy dresses and skirts for summer.
Worst Part of Pregnancy this Week – Definitely the headaches.
Best Part of Pregnancy this Week – Talking to Griffin about baby brothers and sisters. We haven’t told him yet, but are warming him to the idea!
