Forest had his first experience on a swing at Mimi and PawPaw’s house over Easter. I think overall he was quite happy about the experience and I wish we had a good limb at our house for one. Unfortunately most of our trees are tall without low limbs, though there is the live oak by the street—but it is by the street.
On Saturday my mom, sister-in-law Stephanie, Forest, and I did a 5K walk fundraiser for my mom and Stephanie’s church. We successfully walked it in under an hour despite the air turning chilly that morning. I did not plan for cool weather so Chris, Forest and I had cool weather clothes—at least Forest had one long sleeve onesie and a hat tucked into his diaper bag, that was it! Forest ended up borrowing some of Grayson’s clothes which fit in the waist but were a bit long still. Forest was also very good during the walk, had his pacifier in his mouth and chilled the entire time. I was really expecting to have to stop and change his diaper or feed him but he let us get our walk in without any problems.
Then there was egg hunting at the church afterwards. Forest had a little bit of help from his daddy!
Later that afternoon we popped over to the park around the corner from my parent’s house for some photos. These are a few of my favorites from that shoot. It made me really want to get back into portrait photography sometime in the near future.
I ended up with a massive headache late Saturday night that lasted until mid-morning Monday, so Sunday’s egg hunting was rough on me. Mom carried Forest around while I grabbed eggs that didn’t require me to bend down too far. Anytime I moved my head my the pressure in my head got incredibly bad and then I got dizzy. I’m not sure what the deal was, but it was pretty awful. The air was also cool once again and with a front that came through bringing rain, we almost didn’t get to hunt eggs outside.
It was a great weekend and I really can’t wait for Forest to travel just a smidge better so I can start making more trips up there again. I really miss visiting DFW every few months like I had been doing previous to Forest arriving.
