Happy Easter!

Thomas went to church for the first time. Unfortunately it was the Easter vigil Mass (2.5 hrs). He and I missed the entire middle hour while he: decided to feed for extra long and fuss if I tried to take him off, spit up on his cute outfit, made a very wet diaper, filled the extra diaper I had brought, and had a major case of the hiccups. Aside from that hour, (which he and I spent out in the car,) he was good as gold in church. The moment the last hymn was sung, he started crying. Of course, when we got home, he didn't want to go to sleep. He has redeemed himself though, by sleeping for 4 hours straight. I'm going to have to wake him up to feed him.

Last night, we celebrated the Lord's resurrection from the dead by eating our traditional meal of homemade, Chicago-style, deep-dish pizza with sausage and hard-boiled egg. (Actually, a real Italian-American tradition.) Super yummy! The pizza contains all the things that we (well, just Curtis this year) fasted from during Lent (meat, eggs, and dairy). We are meeting Curtis's parents at their hotel(/casino) for Easter brunch at 8am before they hit the road for Fresno. Then we'll dye the eggs that we didn't get around to doing before Easter.

Happy Easter to you all!
It sounds like Thomas is acting really...normal. Your stories bring back such vivid memories. Life with a newborn: never a dull moment...
Are you (Jenny) getting enough rest? Sounds like you are gallivanting all over the place so soon! Take it easy while you can! --Susan
