Our next project was to make salt dough hand prints. Spencer did not enjoy sticking his hand onto the sticky dough and wasn't very cooperative. We had extra dough, so we cut out hearts. The end product is neat, but they take forever to bake!! We still need to paint them, because the blue food coloring grew paler and paler during the baking process. Now the color resembles moldy bread.
An update from last week's project: our Plant Pals are sprouting "hair" like crazy!!
In keeping with the H theme for the week, we actually got to hear the baby's heart beat for the first time on Monday!! We set up an ultrasound appt for May 31st. It feels a little weird--and very nice!!--to be scheduling an ultrasound that isn't due to any pregnancy complications. I am very excited to find out the sex!! I still think the baby is a boy. And I'm pretty sure I felt the little bambino move the other night. It was a faint feeling, like bubbles floating across my stomach, but I'm pretty sure it was my little baby. I hope I feel more movements soon. My baby is now about the size of an avocado (4 1/2 inches).
Enjoy a video of Spencer imitating what his Daddy does once he's done with his cereal.
