Five on Friday

1.  Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for watching the girls two weekends ago so we could have an early anniversary weekend.  We had a wonderfully luxurious time relaxing at Seven Springs.  The weather was horrible but we didn't mind at all.  The snow Sunday morning at breakfast was a lovely..

2.  Can you read that top line?  It says "Amalia June Ward".  Written, of course, by Amalia June Ward.  She's been writing her first name or nickname for well over a year now, but this was her first attempt at her full name.  I remember so clearly choosing her name before she was born and writing it out to see how it looked in print.  It's even prettier in 5-year-old handwriting.

3.  Speaking of babies, we snagged an opportunity to watch our neighbor's little boy for a few hours the other night.  Good practice. Brinn would really like a baby brother.

4.  Again on the topic of babies, any suggestions for "welcome music" for Baby D.?    We make a CD for each labor/birth and the girls have been having fun listening to the music we chose for each one of them.

5.  One final baby note--a huge congratulations to Baby D.'s future godparents, Matt & Erica Wilson.  Baby Wilson #2 is on the way!   Our prayers are with them for an easy pregnancy and healthy baby this summer.  Johnny is going to be ridiculously adorable as a big brother.
