Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! Hope everyone had a great day!

Lola didn't quite know what to take of everything going on today, but she seemed to really enjoy the eggs. Never mind the chocolate or candy inside, she was much more interested in the plastic!

We had a great time today, spending time with my family. We went to church and spent time catching up with some family members. Lola got to see her Grandpa Al and she always likes seeing her cousin, Amber! Lola liked being outside for the egg hunt, too, especially since it was cloudy (she hates the sun).

In other news, we are preparing here for a week without Ray as he is leaving us for five days for work training (insert tears here). Seriously, though, I am not looking forward to it. At all. Ray and I are sort of connected at the hip. And, we have a pretty good system worked out at home for Lola. But, he will be back on Friday, so it's not too long, I suppose. Ray is , unreasonably, worried that Lola is going to forget him. (More reasonably, he's afraid that I'm going to go on a springtime spending spree. That would, at least, be more likely.)

On the baby front, Lola is getting into everything. She is crawling everywhere and her knees are certainly evidence of her newfound skill. She is getting frustrated in that she hasn't learned how to go from sitting to crawling to sitting. She sometimes will surprise herself - and us - by going from sitting to crawling, accidentally, but can't seem to figure out how to get to a toy and sit down to play with it. She's getting close, though - I went in this evening after she went to bed because she was fussing a bit. I found her sitting cross-legged in the middle of the crib looking very confused.

She has yet to show any teeth yet, but I know she can feel them moving around in there somewhere.

And, she is still loving bathtime.

That's about it for now. We sincerely hope you all had a great Easter!
