Happy Easter everyone!!!

First of all, I'd like to be a little nostalgic and look at last year's Easter pictures!

Well, you'd think that a year's difference would result in less mess, right? Haha... not so much. Here's the pictures from this year...I decided just to let him have a good time with it, because, really, who cares if a few eggs get broken, right? 36_1_20%5B1%5D.gif

So David thought the boiled egg was a ball. And, since the nurse, Lindsay, and I were laughing so hard at him, he thought it was hilarious and continued to throw it 36_19_4%5B1%5D.gif 36_11_6%5B1%5D.gif

This egg didn't make it. 36_1_46%5B1%5D.gif 36_11_6%5B1%5D.gif

Then it was time to color them! (and I know there are a ton, but I love them all and couldn't chose)

I love the progression from clean to INSANELY messy. 36_1_20%5B1%5D.gif

I'm just glad I decided to do this outside. Hahah...

Well, today we had a Saturday nurse because we didn't get one on Wednesday. I was so excited. We were going to go to the discovery center with Weston, Jaxon, and Amy. David hasn't been since before he was even able to crawl - he was still on oxygen and everything! So I was really excited about going.

.... but then David started to cough and sneeze and his nose kept running... so we didn't get to go.sob.gif
Hopefully next weekend.

Last week was JoAnn's birthday, so everyone came over to my house to give her birthday gifts. It was so much fun!

Jaxon was such a ham! He looks like he was crying here, but he was really just making funny face LOL

The other day was a bad toddler day for David.

He acted like EVERYTHING was the absolute, end of the WORLD.

Walk out of the room? Tantrum.

Walk into the room? Tantrum.

Read this book? Tantrum.

Read a different book? Tantrum.

Start a breathing treatment? Tantrum.

End a breathing treatment? Tantrum.

Got a dirty diaper? Tantrum.

Change the diaper? Tantrum.

Sit in my lap? Tantrum.

Sit on the floor? Tantrum.

OMG I was ready to pull out my hair by bedtime. 4_11_10%5B1%5D.gif

Which brings me to my next point. Here's something I recently read.

David really wanted to go bye bye the other day - he even got my keys and went the door 36_1_20%5B1%5D.gif

Breathing treatment time!

He didn't want it to end, I guess, because he wouldn't put it down.

... but all good things must come to an end.
