Happy Easter!

We're missing our family today, but having a happy Easter. The service at church last night was amazing. They played Revelation Song as special music with a slideshow of sketches of Jesus going through the crucifixion and then the empty tomb, and it was so powerful. I had to put the song on my blog. It's my new favorite song.

Holy Holy Holy.

I always wanted to be a Jetson.

This month has been so crazy already. Actually, month and a half. My parents came in for my Mom's spring break, then Terri (TJ's mom) came in for her spring break, now my twin brothers are here for a week. (Although it's a little easier because they're staying at my Uncle Larry's.) Siah has LOVED all the visitors and attention. I'm still working on getting him back to playing without an audience. He's so used to looking up to people watching him and clapping that he doesn't understand why I leave the room. Ever. :-) We also think he may be starting to get into the 'clingy stage'? He seems to want me more than he used to. Maybe some of you moms can tell me if your kids went through this. I like being wanted, but I don't want him to cry if we leave him to go out. Come to think of it though, when I've seen those kids they were a lot older than Siah.

I'm not sure how I got the cutest baby on the planet, but I am thoroughly convinced that I did. He's getting so close to crawling, I can taste it. He's starting to get up on his knees, but then he gets frustrated because he doesn't know what to do next. I've tried showing him how to move his legs, but he just laughs and thinks it's a game. I guess he'll have to figure it out on his own. :-) He's such a big boy, while Terri was here she bought him "big boy pajamas" and he looks adorable. They're basically a t-shirt and boxers, and I can't wash them fast enough for him to wear every night. Now that we're eating solids, I have to color-coordinate his clothes and bibs with the food he ate for when he spits up. I know, gross.

So I think I've become addicted to Twitter. I thought it was really dumb at first, and didn't get why everyone was so into it, but I do now. It's just fun. I can't explain it, but it just is. I guess it's just one of those things you have to do before it makes any sense. I actually started an account just to see what it was after hearing about it everywhere. I'm curious to see how long it lasts, if it's just a passing trend or something that will actually stick for years and years. Maybe we'll still be tweeting when we're driving flying cars. I'll be like 80 years old tweeting about lack of respect and the price of a moon vacation. That would be cool.
