These gums were made for gnawing.

Easter Eggs

Tessa and her 2nd cousin Selina had an Easter egg hunt in our yard this year. It's so fun to see these two play together. And it was really fun to have family over to celebrate the holiday.

Isn't she lovely?

She is large and in charge. AND she comes with a bitty baby warmer. Happy Easter to me! ...and the whole family, I think, because, really, don't they all benefit?

Crockpots and I, to be honest, haven't had the best of relationships. I mean it's fun at first, and we get along for a while. But then it always ends badly. I like to say it's not me, it's them. Remember this one? Shortly after, I was lucky enough to receive a free one. This particular crockpot had a hairline fracture in the ceramic dish. As time went on, I pressed my luck. "One more dinner before this thing breaks in two!" It lasted.....just long enough for the silver and black beauty featured above to arrive.

So far, we're getting along swimmingly*. I have a feeling this relationship has lasting power.

*I have never, in fact, used the word "swimmingly" before now. I can see why.

I think I'll keep them around

because their little faces make me so happy.

Tessa loves taking pictures. Here is a picture showcasing her mad photography skills:
Who needs toys when you have a plastic hanger? He had a serious death grip on that thing. Sidenote: We are still waiting to see what color this kid's eyes going to be. We originally thought they might stay blue, but some brown has creeped in around the pupil. I thought Tessa's would stay hazel like mine, but they are now a chocolate brown. My dad's genes don't mess around.

Swim class. She loves it. She especially loves sitting on the steps and gabbing to the female assistant and Anna while the two boys in the class splash all over the place.

Oh, how I love these beans of ours!
