The last few days

As part of Operation Love the One You're With, Eli and I continued to try to find a new thing to do this last weekend. Luckily I stumbled on an Easter Fest at the local nature center. Eli's still young enough that the egg hunt is a success if he gets two eggs (one with a gummy butterfly and one with a gummy penguin. Can you believe the luck!) and he wasn't real big on the DJ playing Disney pop, but the big hit was this little pond that they have. They give the kids fish nets and let them try to scoop out tiny fish, tadpoles, slime, whatever they get their hands on. We'll definately go back to do this again. Hopefully in the future I'll be less likely to have an anxiety attack everytime he leaned over.

Coach came into town for the night, and was able to get Eli all set up for T-ball. He's been dreaming of this day since the day we announced our engagement. E loves it, but also liked wrapping the string around a post in the back yard. He starts playing T-ball in a couple of weeks and I can't wait!

Finally, new school was a raring success! E made new friends, loved the school, and they loved him. He requested special to wear his cowboy shirt, boots, and belt. He also BEGGED for a haircut (as you can see). He wanted one "just like Daddy's." I was a little worried because not everyone can rock the buzz cut, but it looks good on him. Thank God for the C-section head! He also looks about 12 every time I see him now.


  1. I will ignore my rage of jealousy over your beautiful sunny spring skies, and remind myself of your hot summer to come. Sorry the NW spring is a bit much to bare.
    What a great kid. Not liking Disney Pop, getting excited over two Easter eggs, and really rockin' the cowboy with a buz cut look. He also happens to be a very good looking kid.

  2. I am sooo glad you blog so I can keep up to date with what is going on. I admire your decision to change. He is so freaking adorable I can hardly stand it, to think you guys have a girl on the way that will wow us with her beauty and charm, too. Love the haircut, love that it is like dad, and love how adorable you look pregnant. I miss you more than you know.
