Better next year?

Well, Cate's first Easter was a bit of a mixed bag. On Friday, we visited her Loma Linda pediatrician for the last time and Cate is now 27 inches long (3 inches growth in 1.5 months…) and 16 lbs! She is in the 90th percentile for weight and height. Wow. She went through this period last month where she wanted to eat twice in the night and now I know why. THREE inches…

Her vaccinations left her irritable so by Resurrection Sunday we were all a bit tired. Telfer had to work all day but Cate and I got ready for church. And then I couldn't find my keys. Here we were, all dressed up in our Easter finery and literally could not get out of the house (all our doors require a key to open them). After tearing up all sorts of stuff, I FINALLY found them (behind our portable dishwasher) and we raced off to church where Cate was unhappily ensconced in the nursery. She lasted maybe 45 minutes before they had to buzz me. I tried to watch the sermon in the nursery but she couldn't quite calm down. We went home and both took a much needed nap. Telfer got off at 7:00 after a 24-hour call bearing Easter Thai. And then we went to bed.

But! Jesus is ALIVE regardless! I just hope next year is more celebratory.
