Happy Easter!

Hello, and happy, blessed Easter to you all! We spent the holiday weekend with family at my parents' house.  It was fun, as always, and full of good food -- my mom and sister made ham, lamb and banana cream pies, while I impressed everyone with . . . a salad.

The Easter bunny was good to us, and we ended up taking a big sack of candy home. Ralph got some books, his very first toothbrush (so tiny!) and a little strawberry teether that buzzes when he bites down on it. I was hoping it would keep him occupied during church this morning, but no dice. I ended up taking him out halfway through and walking the halls till he fell finally asleep. During the last hymn. Church is hard.

Ralph also got a whole lotta love from his two older cousins, who are growing more and more curious about babies and all the stuff that goes with them. They're determined to figure out exactly what Ralph is doing when he lays on my lap under a blanket. Before we left today little Oliver looked up at me and bravely said, "Will you show me how he eats?" I was like, "Sure, kid, maybe sometime." But I think I'll let his mom explain how that works. :)

We're back home now, but our suitcases are still full and they smell like my mom's house. I'll unpack them tomorrow. I'm too busy stuffing my face with chocolate eggs and stuff.

Hope you all had a happy day!


  1. I love that you said your suitcase smells like your mom's house. I totally know what that's like. Wait as long as you can to unpack that sucker! :) Love that light pink color on you, by the way!

  2. Lol, kids are so hilarious when it comes to breastfeeding. There is always a genuine curiosity.
