Baby Staddon is growing and starting to run out of room! Here’s a picture of him/her at 33 1/2 weeks along! Note the BEAUTIFUL red bud tree in the background! We are blessed to have such a lovely front yard!
April 11th, we experienced our very first Passover Seder here in our home. Robert and I have never been to one before, but he led the group with a book written out for the event and did an incredible job! I was fascinated by all the symbolism and meaning behind everything the children of Israel did in remembrance of what the Lord brought them through to enter the Promised Land. It was a beautiful time of reflection on how the Lord keeps His promises and leads His dear children along. We had a full house with about 30 guests attending with us.
We were blessed to have my dear friend, Amanda, and her husband, Jonathan Reinke, here for a couple days mid-April. I haven’t seen Mandi for four years since her wedding so it was wonderful catching up with her, getting to know her husband better, and meeting her two beautiful children! We had many hours of visiting, took them to downtown Chicago to see the sights, visited the Shedd Aquarium (little Brooklyn loved all the fish!), and took them to a Chick-Fil-A for their first time (Micah wasn’t quite sure what to make of the big cow). It was a wonderful visit!
We celebrated two birthdays this month: James’ and Daniel’s! James came to visit a little after his birthday and we went out to eat at tasty Taco Grill. Then we came back to the house and played some games with Clayton Reedstrom. For Daniel’s birthday, we had a small group over and played speed Scrabble with edible alphabet cookies (they tasted kind of like animal crackers) that his family had sent him! It was so much fun! Happy Birthday to James and Daniel!
And last, but not least, here’s the most recent picture of Baby Staddon at 36 1/2 weeks! We shall get to meet him/her soon!!!
