It's been another exciting month! It's hard to believe that you have been in our lives for almost an entire year. But here we are, and once again we've been just as busy as usual...
|We went to a fancy dinner at Woodman Lodge to celebrate Daddy and Mommy's third wedding anniversary. We got married on St. Patrick's Day, so it's always a big, special holiday at our house. We haven't looked into getting an evening babysitter for you yet, so you came along and we caught the early-bird special in order to get you home for bedtime. You were such a good boy, and it was fun to be out as a family.|
|On March 15 we participated in the St. Patrick's Day 5K Dash at Seattle Center to celebrate the arrival of Spring -- and being Irish! The Dash benefits the Detlef Schrempf Foundation in support of Northwest children's charities. Unfortunately it poured rain the entire time, but you chilled in the stroller like a champ and hardly fussed. We also got all dressed up in our finest green attire on March 17.|
|Grandpa Russ came for a visit this month, and he brought you some exciting new toys that have been some of your favorites ever since!|
|We also went down to Olympia to visit Nana and Grandpa, and we had lots of fun at cousin Shane's birthday party, where we got to see Grandpa's whole side of the family. You love going down there to get spoiled with love and attention.|
|You had a blast riding Trigger, Uncle AJ's horse from when he was a little boy.|
|We also went to Nana and Grandpa's house for your very first Easter! It was difficult to put together an Easter basket for you, because you're not allowed to have candy or sweets yet (and according to Daddy that's the main point of Easter). But you still had fun shaking the plastic eggs that I filled with yogurt melts, and experiencing bubbles for the first time. You also seem to love the little bunny we got you.|
|You love baths and naked time. So far we haven't had any accidents... let's keep it that way!|
|The fit throwing has started. On this particular day, you were furious that I wouldn't let you into the laundry room to play in the cat's litter box. Sorry honey -- not going to happen.|
|And in the morning when the alarm goes off, we always take some time to cuddle and giggle before getting up to face the day. These are some of my very favorite times with you.|
I will cherish the memories we're making for the rest of my life, little angel!
