6 Things…

Six things that have happened in the last month or so.. Six things that have been neglected by yours truly.. They are not earth shattering, nor will they change your life, but they might make you crack a smile which is really what we’re going for here, am I right? So, here goes..

The babies gathered again! And have actually subsequently gathered once more since this picture was taken. I hear the most recent picture is exceedingly cute, especially when compared to this one, given that it was apparently a very serious April morning. May brings smiles much more easily. Also noteworthy: April was the one-year mark from our first tea!

This was the view out my laundry room window a few weeks ago. Cherry blossoms! I am so grateful for trees that are once again full of life!

There is a yearly parade here called the Kate Kennedy procession. It’s put on by uni students that are in the Kate Kennedy Club. Turns out this historical parade would be Aed’s first! He wasn’t as thrilled as we had hoped, but I couldn’t blame him since no one threw candy.. He did neigh really loudly when the first horses went by though :)

My UK mother’s day present bloomed in glorious purple beauty! Unfortunately, we missed most of the blooming since we were on a little getaway (next post!), but they were beautiful and oh-so-fragrant.

Easter! This is Aed’s plumped up Easter basket. It was going to be less than exciting, but then we got an awesome package in the mail that added lots of fun toys and candy for our little Easter Egg.

I know these are blurry, and I apologize.. blurry seems to be my thing these days. As you can see he is his mother’s son. He went STRAIGHT for the Reese cups and proceeded to eat two of them in quick succession. My heart melted. And he was wearing the cutest sweater for the special day! Also noteworthy: That sweater is now lovely shade of light blue thanks to a pair of jeans.

We had a small group of people over for an Easter breakfast and did a little egg hunt with the kiddos, which was so fun! I made the long-awaited braided Easter bread, and it turned out pretty tasty.

It was much cuter before it went into the oven, though..

We had an awesome spread of food (table spruced with flowers from our very own jungle garden) and I was SO uncomfortable sitting through church with such a full tummy! Totally worth it :)

This is how my child eats. He takes a bite out of everything he is given before he goes back to finish anything.

Love this kid.

(What, Mama?)
