Our weekend

I cannot get over the beautiful weather we have had so far this spring. The winter tends to put a lot of Minnesotans in a funk (especially those who might be bed-resting), so it feels beyond amazing to be able to open our windows and let some fresh air inside. Dan bought me an outside bed-restable chair this weekend, so I have spent some time outside reading and lounging in the sunshine.

Elijah spends a lot of time running around outside. He loves to play with his toys in the garage and play with Dan's golf clubs in the grass (when he's not feeling it is too bumpy) and draw on the driveway with chalk. We are working on "driveway and sidewalk ok, street NO-NO." This weekend he started getting upset about every single thing or person he saw pass in front of our house because he wanted to be doing it, too. "ELIJAH RI-I-I-IDE BI-I-I-IKE!!" "ELIJAH DWI-I-I-IVE CA-A-ARRrr!" "ELIJAH RU-U-U-UNNn!" "ELIJAH WA-A-A-A-LK!"

Our munchkin caught a little cold this weekend, so we are sending up some anti-croup prayers. We do have an appointment with his pulmonologist this week, so I have a list of things I want to talk to him about.

Other than that, everything is going just fine for us. My contractions are about the same and staying very manageable. We received some WONDERFUL visits from friends this weekend that we are extremely thankful for. We have the best friends in the world.

Have a good week, everyone!

So glad you're able to get out & enjoy this beautiful weather! Amazing what a little sunshine will do for a body!

I know what you mean about little one's being outside... Vaeh is constantly wanting to be outside! The fun part is that she is now able to go down the steps independently to get out of the house! Boy am I gonna have a fun summer! LoL!!

Hope you're contractions remain manageable & that you continue to have nice weather to enjoy! Give that little man some love from us!

I'm so glad we got connected. I read up on Elijah. He has been through so much and is doing so well. He is definately an inspiration to us all. He is so cute! I love the pictures of him.

A little bit of fresh air is good for the soul. Enjoy the nice weather. I will pray that your pregnancy goes well and that Elijah feels better.

Thanks so much for visiting Jude's page. I appreciate all the support and prayers.
