Every year I say I will only get one or two things, and every year things get a bit out of hand. Although this year I had help from my mom, and Phil’s dad, so it’s not all my fault. 

At least I tried to buy things that will be useful and not just themed trinkets. 

This guy finally got a bit more than a sponge bath. It was much needed, and he was surprisingly happy about it. Even if he did suck on his soapy hands the whole time.

We dyed some eggs today and  Oliver was so good through the whole process! I had forgotten how long you have to wait for the tablets to dissolve, and how long you need to wait for the eggs to take on the dye. It doesn’t seem long until you are doing it with a toddler. The trick was to let him play in a pot of cold water, and he was happy as a clam! 

He couldn’t wait to have an egg with his dinner, and was just as excited as in the top pic when I got one for him out of the fridge! 

Bonus, nothing but the eggs got dyed! 

We went to the zoo this morning, not realizing they were having egg “hunts” all day (the most ridiculous kind where they just lay a ton of eggs all over a lawn, I am not a fan).
So it was a bit nuts, but we stayed away from most of the mayhem and had a good time. Oliver got to see his favorite thing, the fountain. Elliot had a good stroller nap. We played on the nature playground for a bit, which was almost deserted because of the rain. Then we all got soaked on the way to the car, but at least we got out of the house for awhile!

This kid. This kid is the sweetest and most frustrating being ever.

Manhattan Friday, now with new fancy glasses! Cheers!

Two weeks of mornings with Phil.

TBT to last summer when my babies were so much smaller and we were on a weekend trip to the coast. I am so glad we have a vacation coming up, cause I could sure use one.

We got caught in the rain on our walk, good thing we remembered rain pants to cover his cast! The good news is that he can still fit in the swing!

The crinkle paper on the table at the doctors kept him happy for almost the whole appointment. 
2 more weeks then another X-ray. I am crossing all my fingers and toes he gets this cast off by the first week of May since we have a trip to the coast planned and it would really suck if he was in the cast.

We found a decent position in a laundry basket for playing, reading, and snacks. So glad he’s such a happy kiddo, although we’ll see how it goes a the doctors this afternoon. I hope she doesn’t disrupt him too much when checking him out.

I’ve been so jealous of the bread Jenny and Ralph make all the time, I figured I should just make some of my own!

Still waking up with a smile, and trying his best to roll over. Such a sweetheart!

Elliot is enjoying playing with toys that would ordinarily get snatched out of his hand by big brother!
