Busy, Blessed Week

 As I was sitting here contemplating my update that (I'm sorry!) I have put off for waaaay too long, I wondered why I'm SO tired.  Then I started running through the list of what I've accomplished (good feeling) this week.  And I know why.  In addition to lack of sleep because someone still isn't sleeping even remotely close to through the night, I have been cleaning.  And I mean really, really cleaning my house.  Anyone want to come visit and admire my clean house?  It'll probably last until at least tomorrow ;)  And baking.  Cupcakes,  Thomas the Train birthday cake for a co-worker of Rafael's.

Therapy twice.

A surprise visit from Auntie Jen and Gramaria. 

Auntie Jen has a good eye for photography.

 More cupcakes. 

 Grocery store twice because I forgot important stuff like milk (which I then lost in the trunk of the car overnight) And a visit to our favorite pediatrician.  He gave Reagan a good report on her weight gain and told her to keep up the good work.  Yesterday we barbecued and caught up with friends we haven't seen since college and got to meet their adorable daughter.  And today.  Ahhh.  Easter.  Resurrection Sunday.  My second favorite church service of the year (Christmas Eve candlelight is my first in case you were wondering).  Remembering the glory that makes all the joy possible.  And my girls talking about how Jesus came back out of the hole alive and said "Ta-da".
Then hunting for the eggs the girls had so much fun coloring.  Glitter and little girls just go together :)

Really cold and drizzly for California so our picnic got a little chilly and we ran home instead of hiking like we'd planned.  Reagan neither helped with the coloring or the finding, but Mama decorated one just for her so I had to attempt a few pictures which I will now overload you with.

Up next week:  Opthomologist appointment to check Reagan's eyes, another cake, laundry, laundry laundry :)

Lots of thoughts and prayers for Reagan and your family. I was reading the previous post and am anxious to know things are going better or that you at least got answers. I know that sinking, gut wrenching feeling though. Keep up the hard work.
