Happy Easter Everyone! We had an enjoyable but busy weekend. Angeline is 4 weeks old (as of Saturday) and on Thursday her doctors appointment went well. She weighed in at 8lbs 6oz so she is continuing to gain well and she measured 21 inches tall. She is now out of new born clothes and wearing 0-3 month things. We are just considering ordering some cloth diapers for her and David (though hopefully David won't be needing them for long).
Nana and Papa have been here for the weekend. They have been painting our house for us. They got a lot done but the ceiling has needed several coats of paint since the previous owners smoked in the house and one point. Also we ended up ripping out the carpets... thanks Bob! (he has been helping a lot too) so we are having some of the hardwood floors refinished near the end of this week. Jonathan and Bob are painting this morning before Jonathan goes to work. Thanks to everyone who is helping us out with our new place as well as everyone who has offered. Karen has been doing some extra babysitting for us too.
When we move in I will be sure to post before and after pictures, definitely a big difference! Lots to do still before we can move in. We have to put laminate floor in David's room because the hardwood isn't in good shape there and we haven't decided what we are doing in our room or Angeline's. We have some volunteers to help with the laminate and I will be letting people know what days we will be needing help but we are still waiting to see when the hardwood is finished and Jonathan doesn't have his work schedule yet.
David has been a bit cranky lately. He missed mommy and daddy (mostly daddy) because Jonathan has been putting in long days between working and working at the house. He also decided to do some redecorating of his own with blue dry errase pen on his walls, carpet, rocking chair, diaper mat and toys. Most has come out but I still have to work on the walls. Hope everyone enjoys the pictures!

I didn't take much notice of the tree in our front yard when we bought our house but when we got possession on April 4th we noticed it because the flowers had all started to bloom. I took a picture on Wednesday so that everyone could see our beautiful magnolia tree.
Yesterday David played quietly while Angeline and I had a nap. When I woke up he had a poopy diaper which was the least of my concerns. He had climbed onto the change table and styled his hair with penaten cream. At least when he was finished he put the lid back on and he didn't get it anywhere other then his blond locks but what a mess! I used olive oil, paper towel and a comb to get it out then washed his hair with dish soap. When Jonathan got home he gave him a shower and washed it again with shampoo.

We got our house yesterday so we are very excited about that. We have been doing the countdown all week... I even thought that Thursday was Friday so I had 2 days spent thinking "we get our house tomorrow." We spent 4 hours there yesterday cleaning and just enjoying it. We spent another 5 hours there today doing the same thing. I've included a few pictures. 1. The flowers my mom and Al sent to our new house (thanks!) 2. David playing in his new room which he proudly calls "David's room" (he also calls our place "David's house") 3. Angeline in our living room 4. David playing guitar 5. Angeline from sometime earlier this week. She is getting so big. This morning when we woke up Jonathan and I both thought she must have grown in her sleep. She has an official cranky time which is unfortunately around 3-4am but other then that she is pretty content as long as she knows her milk is near by. She had her 3 week birthday yesterday.

These flowers are from Jonathan... for no reason. I think he is just happy to have his wife back! (and happy to see me in a pair of jeans that are not maternity!)
