Back to Normal

Things are finally starting to get back to normal after Eric's surgery, for which I am so thankful. I know it was only less than two weeks, but it was still no fun! Eric is healing really well, and his pain is getting less every day. The doctor gave a good report on Monday, and hopefully by the weekend he'll be free of throat pain! It is good to see him start eating normal things again- he needs gain back the 10 pounds he lost. :)

It's great also to just be able to talk and joke around with him again after not hearing much of his voice for a week! I have my husband back, and it's great! :) He's back to work this week, and everything feels like it's getting normal again. I'm so thankful.

The pregnancy continues to go smoothly, and my belly keeps expanding! I got to buy some maternity clothes for spring last week, which is fun. I wear a lab coat all the time at work, and I think soon I won't be able to button it thanks to my belly. :) The baby has quiet days and active days, and it's so fun to feel him moving around. Eric felt him for the first time last night, too, which was awesome. It's just so wierd to have something alive inside of me!

We are getting spring fever, I think. We have daffodils and hyacinths in our front garden, and we're waiting for the tulips to bloom- it's so pretty. We're dying to go camping, but a free weekend is a hard commodity to come by! Hopefully in the next few weeks we'll get to get away for a couple days and camp at Lake Texoma.

This Friday night there is a youth group event- "Mystery Night." I am supposed to make a dessert that looks like one thing and tastes like another. Hmmm... Other than that I don't know what we're doing. Eric will be enjoying solid food again, I'm sure. I think a burger and fries are top on his priority list this weekend. :)

Sorry for the boring update! :) Love to all!
