Monday 3/29: The invitations for my cousin-in-law's baby shower arrived today. I designed them myself and had them printed with Vistaprint. They turned out great, I think! (Address blurred out here for privacy.) Tuesday 3/30: Kate is getting picky in her eating right now. She'll eat cheese, bread/crackers, and most any kind of fruit, but no veggies! Hopefully it's just a phase, but I'm feeding her a lot of avocados now, since she loves them and they are packed with just about every nutrient you could want. This night, she wouldn't eat the pieces I cut off--she wanted to eat the fruit out of the skin itself!
Wednesday 3/31: We see this face a lot right now. Kate is strong-willed, and gets fussy when we can't read her mind to know what she wants. (Usually, it's more fruit, Cheerios, or the play with the camera.) She can be such a drama queen sometimes!
Thursday 4/1: On the way to our Maundy Thursday service, I stopped at the dollar store to get supplies for the twenty treat-filled eggs we needed to provide for Kate's school egg hunt the next day. Since one-year-olds can't really eat candy, I filled the eggs with stickers and little plastic frogs.
Friday 4/2: Parents were invited to come for the egg hunt, and we all enjoyed chasing our kids around the playground, helping them pick up eggs and put them in their baskets. Toddlers enjoy putting things in and taking things out of containers, so they mainly went around taking eggs out of each other's baskets while the parents defensively said "no, sweetie! that one's yours!" (Kate didn't want to stop for a family picture!)
Saturday 4/3: We "opened" our Easter baskets, and Kate loved the bubbles! She squealed and jumped around when I blew bubbles her way. I love this shot--unbridled joy! (Check out the video here!)
Sunday 4/4: Easter Sunday! I know it's frivolous, but I sure do love a little girl in a smocked dress! (This little girl, in particular!)
