Life hasn't been dull the last few months. Hmmm... How to describe it? Allow me to use a previous illustration....
Lots of great things going on, so don't mistake me for complaining. Allow me to hit some of the highlights.
During my months of pregnancy I enjoyed playing floor hockey with some local ladies. Totally fun!! Here I am a week before the due date.
Baby born. So very, very cute! Delivery went well. Recovery went well (a large part thanks to playing floor hockey!). Nils got sick and got to stay two extra weeks. Bad for Nils; good for all of us.
During that extra time that Nils was here, we decided to buy a new house. As of today, we are able to start moving into our new home in Providence!
I went a little crazy this year for Easter and made everyone matching outfits. Thankfully Grandmama helped with Rosey's dress (featured in a later picture).
Nils' grandfather died. Papa is greatly missed. We had the opportunity to attend his funeral all together in South Carolina. Nils came from Afghanistan and we met him there. We also sang a song for Papa, featuring a touching solo by Jane. Here's a link to the recording. (Sorry, it's not captioned, but here is a link to the lyrics)
Rosey's blessing/Easter dress made by Grandmama. We were able to bless Rosey during Nils' recent visit. And as luck would have it, she was blessed on Uncle Toby's birthday!
In other news... We have (almost) sold our townhouse! It's currently under contract with one of the cutest, most enthusiastic buyers I've ever seen. We feel very fortunate that things have worked out so well.
Because Nils has had to live thousands of miles away from his family these past months, we are taking a family vacation to Ireland in May! It still seems too good to be true. Looking forward to having pictures to post of that trip!
