Mother's Day

Gisèle dancing in the Easter dress & hat Nana made

We had a fun morning! We arrived at church early to get our Mother's Day photo taken. Gisèle was grumpy when we had her sitting between us on the bench, but smiled as soon as we let her stand. Should be a cute photo! Since we still had time to kill before checking her into her classroom, Jamie and I followed her around the church lobby & hallways while she said "Hi!" and gave high-fives to everyone within 15 feet. She had a great time at church, as always, and conked out on the way home. She woke up long enough to eat some lunch, and then was put down in her crib, where she proceeded to talk and sing ("Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star is a current favorite) for about an hour before falling asleep. When she wakes up, we're going to head to a nearby restaurant for a late afternoon "brunch" for Mother's Day. Besides brunch, I got a wonderful card today from Jamie & Gisèle, flowers earlier in the week, and a gift - Photoshop Elements! It's going to take a while to learn how to use it, but I'm excited!

Another fun thing happened yesterday - Jamie got to feel Baby #2 move! I've felt a bit of movement, but nothing strong enough to be felt from outside. Yesterday morning, though, I woke up and felt quite a few pretty strong kicks. Jamie came over and put his hand on my tummy and waited... and waited... and waited... until he felt it! It makes the pregnancy a bit more real for both of us, I think. Now we REALLY need to work on picking out a name. The big ultrasound is May 28th, so we may hold off until then so we'll know which gender to focus on.

I tried a new recipe this afternoon - Peaches & Cream Muffins. Yummy! I'll post the recipe within the next couple of days.

Darling photos! What a sweet outfit. That's so exciting about Jamie feeling the wee one move. I can't wait to hear about your u/s...and names! :)

A sweet outfit and a super sweet little gal. Glad we could see her wearing it in person. :)
