April was a flurry of fun events for the Glosser family. We were SO. BUSY. But, as usual, it was all worth it and we had a great time in the midst of it. My husband celebrated his induction into a new decade -- yep, the big 3-0. We had two family weddings to attend -- my brother-in-law and my husband's cousin -- and we had children involved in both! My baby seester had a birthday, we started prenatal classes at the hospital where I'll be delivering, there was a school musical, and, of course (and certainly not the least), Easter. All that on top of the regularly scheduled
|Buddy Boy likes all things aquatic right now, so he was way|
excited to play with the shark & octopus puppets in the puppet theater!
|We just learned that our big girl is old enough to have her own|
library card! She was super pumped to take it home with her.
|This girl and her shoes... I think she was meant to be a woodland|
creature of some sort. She is definitely most happy when she's outdoors.
My brother-in-law's wedding was a wonderful day. I'm so proud of my two little flower girls & my handsome ring-bearer! (My husband did a pretty outstanding job as a groomsman too... and dang, doesn't he look good all spiffed up?) We are so happy we could be a part of such a special day.

"It's the Lorax!! Everybody out of the van!"

Easter egg hunt at Grandma & Grandpa's.

Ok, I can't get over how beautiful & grown up my sweet little Bubbaloo is! I mean, come on. Aren't these just adorbs?
This was her second stint as a flower girl this month, and I truly believe she'd do it every month. She has such a great time! (photo courtesy of Meg Blunk @ Capri Photography by Meg)
|Spring! The best look of the season is all of the life sprouting|
and blossoming. Ahh, just breathe it in.
Obviously, I'm a tad behind in posting... Just getting April's review up when the end of May is right up ahead? Yikes. I hope to get May up soon (like before June), but we'll see what happens. :)
In case you didn't know, I'm currently 9 months pregnant with our fourth child! Our new little ray of sunshine is due to appear sometime around June 11th, but I feel like she (yep, GIRL) might make her debut a little sooner. Hence, I have been all rush, rush, rush to get prepared. For some odd reason I haven't had the drive to get things done this time around. With only two weeks to go, I literally just packed my hospital bag yesterday. (Well, it's mostly packed anyway.) And we don't even have a car seat yet. (Don't worry! It's on its way & should arrive by Friday... at least that's what I keep telling myself.) Maybe it's because this pregnancy has flown by so quickly? I always feel like I have more time... Well, not always. That feeling is definitely gone now!
I'd appreciate your prayers as we finish getting ready for our little one -- there's still so much to do! Pray for a smooth & safe delivery, a peaceful transition from three munchkins to four, and strength & energy for this mama to pull through those difficult first few weeks of adjusting to a newborn's schedule.
