The fact that they don’t have any more Cadbury Creme Eggs ANYWHERE, and I’m totally craving them. Why didn’t I stock up for my year’s supply??
Max’s expression when I “got” him for the third year in a row on my signature April Fools trick…putting a big fake plastic spider in the bottom of his cereal bowl. Oh man I love it. I found myself randomly laughing about it to myself on the way to Costco the other day. And over dinner last night. And driving to scouts on Thursday. And right now. I just get such a kick out of myself sometimes. What a good sport he is.
How incredible Easter lilies smell.Claire’s jaw-droping wide-eyed glee over and over and over and over again as she yelled “LUCY!!” in surprise and delight every time Lucy took a couple steps last Sunday. Yep, after the soup can dropping on her foot put a month delay on her walking we’re finally back to square one taking steps again. We’re all pretty darn excited about it. She has her shopping cart that helps her get around. She’s very attached to her babies and stuffed animals these days as you can see…also, one of her favorites: a small can of tomato paste. Like a security blanket. At least it’s small so I don’t worry about her hurting her foot again.Elle is becoming a teenager before my eyes. And I think she needs braces.How Lucy crosses her feet and gets the biggest grins in her highchair. Oh, and the way her eyelashes curl up around her bright blue eyes.That Grace finally lost her front tooth she’s been dying to lose in a bike accident last week…it just popped out and it wasn’t even the one that was loose. Then the next day the loose one popped out too. AND the tooth fairy even remembered. Happy days for her! (These pictures are backwards but you get it, right?)That I can have an almost spiritual experience feeling so in love with my family while doing something as mundane as cleaning the kitchen together after dinner…with rap music blaring full blast, everyone doing something to help…including Lucy re-arranging the cabinets.
My cough that has kept Dave and I up at night for over a month now. A little sick of this one!
p.s. Thanks so much for the sweet comments, nice calls and e-mails about photo shoots. I’m so sorry I won’t be able to fit everyone in, and that I haven’t gotten back to some of you yet…I’m working on it. Thanks for being patient!
