Easter Happened

Somehow I managed to not take ANY pictures of Easter at all.
Mother of the Year, right here.
None of dying eggs
None of the fun Easter projects with Grandma Janet
None of the Easter egg hunts
None of the Easter baskets
None of the Easter dresses

Uncle Jed took this one of Polly with his phone, looking irresistible.

What Abe's Been Up To

In one short month, little Abe is going to turn 1!
Wasn't he born just a few weeks ago?
I swear it.

He just keeps getting more awesome.

He's almost walking.
You can tell by the revolving bruises on his head.
He walks along the walls to get where he needs to go, and takes a few un-assisted steps here and there.  Frankly, I'm not rushing him.

He's been trying to get his second molar, but so far has just been one big swollen and purple lump on his gums for weeks.  It's sad.

He has a deep, throat-y laugh that comes easily.
He laughs every time he's in the wind.  Or if someone makes animal sounds.

 He loves cabinets, drawers, toilet lids and toilet paper.  He also likes to reeeaaach his hand into the water while the girls take a bath. 

And apparently he likes to ride in the toy stroller.
Who wouldn't?

Birthday re-cap

WOW!  It worked.  Time really did stand still.  On my blog at least.  I totally meant to re-cap Polly's birthday.  I'll do it now.

My darling, reserved child did NOT want a party (?)
She opted for a few friends for a lunch at the resturaunt of her choice. 
Yes! Playland!

Family parties are okay. 
No cake allowed.

Grandma Janet and Grandpa Mike gave her a gift card to Build-a-Bear.  The next day they went for a train ride and to pick out her build-a-bunny, Katelyn.
She felt very special.
