For the Love of Laundry

We'll it's been a crazy week. Our friends DJ and Casey had a a baby boy, Caleb on Sunday and now he is awaiting to have open heart surgery. He has been improving since he was born so that is great news, many prayers and the very skilled Doctors are taking good care of him.

On the other hand, my lovely sister had her fourth and final, Claire Love LaTour Monday. I can't wait to meet her!

With all of this going on Sam continues to have a love for laundry. As I fold, she unfolds and puts the laundry on top of her head and goes about playing. She will sit for 5 minutes with a piece of clothing, putting it behind her head and back over it.

Silly girl.
 She sorda thinks she's funny :)
In the midst of all of this, we had our first ultrasound and it turns out I'm 8 weeks and 7 days, and I'm due April 30. Not as far along as I thought. So far this pregnancy has been totally different. I was throwing up for a week and then it magically disappeared and all of this so soon. I didn't have any symptoms of pregnancy with Samantha until I was 10 weeks pregnant and I never threw up! The other exciting things is that my friend Ronna is 8 weeks and 5 days and she's due May 2! So we're going to be going through all of this together. This is the kind of thing you hope for as a little girl :) Pretty exciting!!!

The Zoo

A couple of weekends ago we went to the zoo. Paul had some passes from work and the last time we were there I was pregnant with Sam :) Paul had a fun time looking at the penguins with Samantha.

Later her and I took a ride on the carousel. She was so stimulated looking at everything that was passing by as we turned.

Then we looked at the elephants and she thought it was so funny. She was laughing and pointing at him.

She loves wearing my sunglasses. She thinks shes hilarious with putting them on and pulling them off, and she is pretty darn cute doing it too :)

Then we took her to the petting zoo and she loved the goats. This girls not afraid of animals, when were at a friends house with a dog she spends most of the time crawling after the dog. My friend has hairless cats and at first she didn't know what to think of them, but then she started chasing them, but cats are a whole different type of animals. Let's just say she never got the chance to pet them, they run too fast!

Finally it was time to leave and time for her nap. What a fun day with our baby girl! It was much better going to the zoo with child than without a year ago :)

Weekend Away

We went away to visit our friends this weekend. They live on the Washington/Canada border. Unfortunately we found out one of our passports had expired, so no Canada for us yet. We went for a walk on the beach and while we were there we changed Sam's diaper and let her air out. While she was standing and she started to pee in the sand. I think she felt pretty free :)

Before we went away we got a late night visit from some old friends. Danielle and Anthony have been on a crazy road trip from Colorado to Wyoming, and lucky us in Seattle. It was great to see them and it was their first time meeting Sam :)
