The books say that Baby is now 5 pounds and is about 19 1/2 inches long. He/she sure makes a lot of commotion when turning and twisting around. It must be getting cramped inside there! :)

The ladies that Matt works with at Concordia Lutheran High School threw us a shower! The food was yummy and the decorations were beautiful. They displayed pictures of when both Matt and Kim were babies. What a creative touch!
Kim's mom came to Houston over our spring break. Before Matt left on his cruise (with many Lutheran HS principals & assistant principals from across the country), Mom and Matt started the process of fixing a screen in our house that was damaged during Hurricane Ike.
We just HAD to take Mom to see the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo! She especially liked the "Calf Wrestling" competition.

Our young marrieds' group from church threw us a couples' baby shower. Emily (holding baby Annie) and her husband Jeremy hosted. Emily also designed the creative "diaper cake" on the counter. Tasha (in pink) prepared the main courses ... spaghetti and tetrazzini. Yum!
While the girls chat, the boys take in some March Madness basketball ... or is Matt sleeping?? Notice the cute clothesline of baby clothes behind the boys.
Emily decorated with duckies and yellow flowers. She used baby bottles as the vases for most of the flowers. Clever!
Our friend Gennie designed a smell-the-baby-food-in-the-diaper game. Needless to say, Matt and I were the biggest losers, only correctly identifying the peas. Oh, well ... a year from now, we'll be seasoned veterans at baby food interpretation! :)
