Wednesday, April 4th marked 25 weeks. According to babycenter.com:
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.
This week, we 'jacked up' the crib. Big Sister Tobie likes to be under things and I think Snowflake's crib will be no different. For now it is just bricks wrapped in a towel. We will have to come up with something more permanent and less ghetto looking.

Happy Easter from Snowflake! Below was her gift of choice to her Dad and all of the Grandparents.
This week's funny story from school:
The same little girl as last week said, "Mrs. Snow, your belly's getting huger than I thought.Maybe even fat!" My assistant and I just tried not to burst out laughing while she thought she was speaking the truth. I think what makes it so funny is that I don't feel like I look much different from the week before but in her eyes, I have just ballooned up.
This week at school I also discovered I can't draw a chalk line, well 3 of them, while standing up. We had our kindergarten egg drop on Good Friday. I went out to draw these lines so our little friends would know where to sit and have some type of boundary so they are not in the way of falling eggs. Who knew that it would be so difficult and leave me winded.
Last week, we had gone to purchase the hutch for the dresser. Earlier in the week when we had called, there were three. When we were there the BBB girl told us they were out and it would take 8-10 weeks to get one in. We both thought that was odd since we had been told there were 3 so Hubby called on Monday. Lo and behold they have one! I instructed him to get online and find a 20% off coupon (because they don't take Bed Bath and Beyond coupons on furniture) before going to purchase it. Of course he listened and went to pick it up after work. The same girl was working and said she felt bad because she saw it after we left. Whatever. At least we have it and don't have to wait 8-10 weeks for it.
We also have the closet cleaned out so now everything in there belongs to Miss Snowflake. We are still on the hunt for a desk. We found one at Staples that we wanted to look at, drove out there, and they are closed for Easter. As we speak, Hubby is moving more little things out because he is ready to paint! The walls are cleared off and spackled. He is just waiting on the paint roller to arrive from Enid (My Dad is coming over to visit and bringing it with him).
