Happy Easter

This weekend we hung out with Brett's Uncle Jeff and Aunt Stacey quite a bit, and did lots of eating...we really enjoyed the weather this weekend, and loved just being able to stay around home.




Brett got caught up on sleep, taking a 3 hour nap each day. We also, of course had to go see the Easter Bunny. Brett was clinging to my shirt with his little kung-fu death grip when I tried to sit him on the bunny's lap and started to fuss when a nice little girl came along and distracted him just long enough for me to snap a few pictures!





I have to include this picture of last year on his first Easter...it's blurry because it's a picture of a picture...



We "hid" some Easter Eggs here at home - I put puffs in most of them, but we discovered he also likes Peeps (and why wouldn't he?!) so I added a few little bites of peeps in some of them. It was so much fun watching him crawl around and find his eggs and eat the treats in them. He got the hang of it pretty quickly! He would find one, make an excited sort of noise, and crawl after it. He played with those things for the longest.









Brett also spent some time doing one of his other favorite things...watching the laundry. LOVES it. Glad someone enjoys laundry! What a nice, relaxing weekend!

First Steps

Exciting stuff in our house - Brett has started doing a little walking! He can go back and forth a little between me and Brian now, but he hasn't just taken off on his own yet (that's ok, we are really in no hurry!). He also cruises along walls and furniture, and he will walk holding your hand. He's definitely all boy - he's had an accident report two days in a row at daycare for scratches and carpet burns on his face after tripping and falling or fearlessly diving over the climbing mat things. Anyhow - I looove watching his little smiling face stumbling toward me with his arms in the air! So stinkin' cute.
