Content to just snuggle in the blanket!
Father and son playing ball
When the waves would go back into the ocean Isaac would try and call them back (waving his arm or "snapping" his fingers).

So Peanut is our baby's name at the moment because that's exactly what he/she looks like in the ultrasound. We could see arms, legs, and an amazingly strong heart beat, but it's super hard to see in a picture. ALTHOUGH, according to my most recently evaluated wives tale, it could be miss Peanut! Some of my friends think I'm crazy but constantly guessing boy or girl totally entertains me! I knew Isaac was a boy from the beginning but I have mixed feelings about this one. Anyway, the reason I'm leaning toward "miss" is because of how the baby is laying. Judging by vaginal ultrasounds, typically boys lay face down and girls lay face up. Isaac was face down and this one is face up. If you want to humor me mommys, check out your ultrasounds and let me know which way your baby is facing. I will be shocked if Peanut is a girl though. For some reason I feel like I'm meant to be a mom of all boys! All that pink overwhelms me a little too!
We're thankful that Peanut is alive and well and can't wait to meet face to face in November! Thank you God for our second precious baby!

So, I guess I'll be done with my sob stories and give a quick review of the week.
I got to hang out with two of my best childhood friends. Julie lives in Arizona so I always get to see her when I go home but Carla is in Colorado and I haven't seen her since my baby shower in Sept. '07. It was her first time meeting Isaac and my first time meeting her little girl! In elementary school, jr. high, and high school the three of us were inseparable. It's sad that we all live in different states now. We always pick up where we left off though!
Isaac also got to go to a little petting zoo at my parent's church. He loved it!!! He wanted to chase every duck, pet every rabbit, and pull the horns of every goat.
We had a wonderful Easter and spent most of the day outside playing ball (egg hunt). Isaac would take a plastic egg to the grass, step on it so that it would split open, and then take it to my mom so she could fix it. He did this over and over and over. He also spent a lot of time with Iso (Isoisa is grandpa in Finnish). They pulled weeds, painted the driveway (with water), hung up side down, and played every sport imaginable. It was a wonderful week and I'm looking forward to the next trip. Dad, thanks for taking care of Isaac so that mom could take care of me! Thanks mom!

His "helmet" came in quite handy for carrying all his eggs! Imagine that!
Such a perfect park for hiding Easter eggs!
All the kids after the hunt! Isaac was a little overwhelmed at this point!
Oh no! The orange shoes are back!!! His favorite pumpkin crocs are too small so these were in his Easter basket.
