So I missed posting a Thoughts on Thursday yesterday. I’ll go ahead and be honest and let you know that I took a nap while Peyton napped instead of typing a post. Trust me – it was very needed.
So here I sit on a Friday evening. We just laid Peyton down for bed and Forest is in the basement painting and grouting tile so he can install baseboards tomorrow and be D.O.N.E. [except for dusting everything and putting it all back in place which we’ll do tomorrow and he said his basement will be done for Mother’s Day – how sweet. ;)].
So here are a few thoughts from my week:
Happy last Thursday in April!
Me and this silly girl are going to get a free cone at Carvel today when she wakes up from her nap!
I don’t have any pictures of an easy breakfast with cute Easter jammies this year. Our church moved their first service from 8:30 to 7:30 for Easter so we were all pretty rushed to get out the door on time. But the service was good – I always love the songs we sing on Easter. And then we came back home for Peyton to open her Easter basket (bath toys, bubbles, summer clothes, and 1 piece of chocolate) and do a quick Easter egg hunt before Aunt Amanda needed to get to the airport.
So I don’t know if it’s pregnancy related or not but lately I’m able to pull of 3 days (I haven’t tried more than that) without washing my hair! And to make it even more awesome, I don’t have to use dry shampoo! It HAS to be related to pregnancy hormones because I’ve never been able to go 2 days even using dry shampoo.

We moved Peyton out of the nursery at the end of March. She’s now in what was the guest room but is now her big girl room! It’s bigger than the nursery – more room for her toys and playing! – and it’s farther away from our room – which makes no difference, really, because I think our walls are made of paper.
I was completely against the idea of moving Peyton at first. We decorated that room for her and I didn’t want to take it away from her. But the idea of having a baby in a bigger room didn’t make sense. So I agreed it would be best to move her. I was nervous she wouldn’t transition well (I was dreading multiple middle of the night wake ups) but she didn’t have a single problem.
Indie had a 6-week post-surgery check-up at the vet on Friday and the doctor gave us the go-ahead on physical therapy – short 10-15 minute walks that gradually increase in length as the week progresses. Her walks started the next day and so did my shin splints. Ouch. They were better today during her walk after dinner, thank goodness, but shin splints are no joke!
We had a guest speaker at church on Sunday, Daniel Fusco. He actually grew up in the Old Bridge, NJ area and is a 3x church planter currently living outside of Portland, OR. He mentioned his book, Honestly: Getting Real about Jesus and Our Messy Lives, and I’m very interested in reading it.
