Getting ready for Easter

23 03 2013

We decorated our Easter eggs today. I read recently that Kool-Aid was a safer, cleaner option for toddlers to dye eggs. It worked out well and Amelia loved it although the colors are not as bright as regular egg dye. Cleanup was a breeze!

We practiced the Easter egg hunt with some of our Church friends at the park. Amelia knew just what to do and found many eggs.

She took a break to swing but didn’t want to put down her basket of eggs.

It’s a beautiful day today. A little chilly, but sunny and perfect for a tricycle ride around the yard.

Telling us all about it

19 03 2013

Amelia is talking up a storm these days. Some of her newer 17 month old phrases are:

“I got it”

“I did it”

“Go go go”

“Up and down”

“I don’t know”

“Big girl”

“Crykickle ousside” –Tricycle Outside

“Hot doodles”- hot noodles

She also says her name a lot, which sounds like “Amena”.

She loves to play “house” and with her “kitchen” and with “babies”. Her toddler babble is so fun and cute.

We had fun wearing green and going out for breakfast on St. Patrick's Day.

Amelia enjoyed playing with the “Irish” coffee creamers.

She helped us get ready for the party by playing in the drinks bucket

and lining up some spices on the coffee table.

We had a lot of babies at the party again. Pretty soon these babies will be too big to have the whole moms group together I think!

Amelia did pretty well letting all the kids play with her toys- good practice for a sibling!

We enjoyed the porch, but couldn’t go outside this year. It was cold and snowy!

Lily and Amelia loved the bubbles. Lily was trying to eat them.

We are going to miss Peter, Lesley and baby Addy. They are moving to London in 9 days. We may need to bring our babies over there to visit!
