E is for Easter

This week was all about the letter E, specifically Easter. We read from Spencer's Children's Bible everyday, learning about Jesus and how he died for us.

We started the letter project by crushing Egg shells onto the glue on a big E made out of card stock. Once the glue was dry, Spencer painted it.

We also used the Egg shells for another project: an Egg made out of card stock. He had painted the remaining Egg shells and then crushed those onto the card stock Egg, which he had first painted.

He seemed to like the projects, but would get mad when the egg shells stuck to his fingers.

We also made a trip to the mall to visit the Easter Bunny. Spencer liked him a lot from the safety of his stroller. He waved and smiled and pointed at him. But the minute he was out of the stroller and I mentioned getting his picture taken, he changed his mind about the big, furry creature. He wrapped his little arms tight around my neck and his little legs tight around my waist. He didn't want anything to do with the Easter Bunny! Take a look at the difference between last year and this year:

This furry thing ain't so bad....

Get me outta here!!!
Spencer and I also made Easter cookies. He really liked the rolling pin, but didn't have patience for the cookie cutters. He especially liked eating the cookies!!

The final thing we did was go on an Easter Egg Hunt, which he LOVED. We did it a few times before he grew tired of it. I video recorded it, but I can't get the video to upload for some reason.

On the pregnancy front, my baby can now squint, frown, grimace, pee and maybe even suck his/her thumb. The baby measures 3 1/2 inches, about the size of a lemon, and weighs 1 1/2 ounces. I am officially in the second trimester!! Woo hoo!! Let's do a celebratory happy dance for this milestone!! My next doctor appointment is on Tuesday, and I am so very excited to hear the baby's heartbeat!!
