Easter eggs

Let's be real - whoever said that dying Easter eggs with a two year old (and a baby on your hip) was lying. Try explaining the soaking process and that, "No, you cannot dip your hand in the water and wipe it or sling it like that," one hundred times. We ended up with 13 colored eggs & about half of them have stickers (that I put on myself). Whew. We may save dying Easter eggs for when my kids are teenagers.

Happy half birthday little dude!! You are such a delight. You give the best smiles and seem to be content taking in the world around you. You like to sit up (all by yourself) and watch Amos do whatever he's doing or to be in the exersaucer where you can stand and watch what's going on. And, you still  hate to be on your tummy! You may crawl before you roll from your back to your tummy. Do it your own way, dude. 

We moved into our "temporary house" while we're renovating our new house and you've been so easy to just go with the flow. You and Amos now share a room (which you'll continue to do once we move into our new house) and for the most part it's been wonderful. You love to sit on Amos' bed with him and belly laugh at just about everything he does.  It is so sweet to see how you adore him. 

At your 6 month appointment you weighed 16.5# and were 28" long. You're a little longer and lighter than 'Mos was at this appointment, but the doc said to keep watching - that you two will probably eventually even out. We'll see. Keep growing big & strong, Solly Mack. Mama is looking forward to our first summer together. We'll puddle sploosh with Amos, swim in the lake with daddy-o, boat ride with Mimi & Papa, explore the beach (hopefully lots of times), eat popsicles on the front stoop, sleep late (fingers crossed), catch lightening bugs, walk to the park and play hard all day long. 

Love you Solly-mon, to the moon and back.
