GOD has really given me a peace, and I tell myself, "One box at a time, one room at a time." Even though I go from room to room wondering what I am doing there. I am excited about all the progress I've already made (thanks for coming over this afternoon, Shannon!) especially with Z around. Who knew balloons could provide so much entertainment!?

Meredith, Garrett, me, Zach, Mandy, and Abby
We took the kids to have their pics taken with REAL Easter bunnies. They were too cute! Of course, Zach tried to throw two of them (they WERE in his lap), but he was quickly diverted to Easter eggs in a basket to throw around. ; )
I love window pictures like this! Zach and Abby are taking a break from chasing each other around. They really got used to each other this week. I love any chance for Zach to be around his cousins!

Today was a BIG day! THINK PINK!
We are having a baby girl in August! It's amazing to believe that Zach will have a little sister.

Earlier this week Shannon met Zach and me at the park. It's great to be outside!
I am seventeen weeks tomorrow and can't WAIT to find out what we're having. The past few weeks I've had a feeling like the baby is a girl...

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Praise the LORD for all these healthy babies being born. SO many of my friends have had babies in the last two weeks.
Jason's parents came up to celebrate Andy's birthday, and of course, to see Zach, I mean, all of their kids and me!
How many balls can I hold!?
Sunday night Jason and I served as host/hostess for a church dinner. We had a wonderful time, and Zach had a great time playing with Shannon.

Zach has a double ear infection, and today is the first day he's been back to his happy self. I'm so glad he's feeling better, and hopefully the meds will clear the infections up. I feel very blessed because he has never had one before, and as a lot of you probably know they are just no fun.
Jason bought Zach some footballs, and Zach has learned how to say "football!" It's precious.
He loves playing basketball, too.

Jason and I want to use "teachable moments" with Zach in our every day moments with him. So lately we have been talking with Zach about doing his best every day and the value of a hard-earned dollar.
Zach and I met Jason for lunch earlier this week at a local chicken restaurant. After we were finished eating, Zach ran around as we gathered our things to leave. Before we knew what had happened, he had bolted through the kitchen double doors! We ran after him, and thank goodness the workers were laughing and started to chase him around. They said this was definitely a "first" for them.
This is a picture of one of the ladies "shooing" him out of the kitchen.

***Zach doesn't have fifth's disease! Praise the LORD. He had an allergic reaction to something, and we're going to watch his rash the next few days to make sure it disappears completely. I am so thankful it's nothing worse! If you read my post earlier today, thank you for praying!
Jason and I spent the weekend with five of my high school besties and a few of their hubbies at his grandparents' lakehouse (we missed you, Suzanne!). The girls did nothing but talk, play games, eat, talk, laugh, talk, and laugh some more! It was an amazing refreshing weekend other than not sleeping much...but it was TOTALLY worth it.
