Meriden Daffodil Festival - 2010

Last weekend we went to the Meriden Daffodil Festival. Honestly, we've been so busy with house hunting and house selling that this family outing was really fun. It was nice to get out with the kids. We've gone to this festival for the past three years. (You may remember this post from 2 years ago, and last year we went, but I was suffering from some majorly 9 month pregnant pregnancy brain and forgot my camera.) The first mission was to get the kids to take a decent picture or two in the daffodils.20 minutes and 384 pictures later - we were satisfied. We, of course, found the princess girl horses. Scarlett, as you can see, could not have been happier. Holden was intrigued. We found the big, Big, BIG slide too. And the animals. There was a pile of hay to feed the animals and we spent about an hour doing that. Seriously. Again. Holden was intrigued.

That's it. :)

This just in...

A tooth! shortly after he turned 11 months, I noticed Holden had cut his first tooth. I haven't even tried to take a picture. Something tells me that will be quite difficult - but it's there. I promise you. And I thought it'd never come.

Gulp. Holden turns 11 months.

I can't believe this kid is close to a year. What happened?! My baby boy.
If I could spend all day biting Holden's chubby cheeks - I would. I love them. And he laughs when I do it so it makes it all the more tempting. If only that paid the bills. (Sigh.) As you can see, Holden's hair is getting quite long. We're just going to let it grow in a bit and see what it looks like. Mainly because mentally, I cannot handle getting his hair cut. (He is not that big yet. He is not that big yet.)And check out this gut. Holden gets into everything. He waits for me to walk away from the computer and then makes a beeline for it. He usually grabs the mouse and brings it under the table. And this kid goes to sleep so incredibly easy. He always has. He falls asleep the second his head hits the crib....sometimes, as you'll see, in very awkward positions. He still usually gets up once in the night, but I'd far rather that than having it take 30 minutes to put him down, which was usually the case with Scarlett. Holden has started climbing up our steps which horrifies me. This is what usually happens (and while my heart jumps into my throat, he could care less...)

Scarlett and Holden have been caught in the act of playing a few times recently...and honestly, it has been the highlight of parenthood thus far.
Now just as long as they don't get any bigger...I didn't think this would be happening any time soon because of the pure beastedness that is Holden, but now that he has mastered crawling he has moved right on to pulling himself up. And even letting go with one hand.
One thing he has yet to master is cleanliness. Yuck!
In roughly one month, this little Munch'll be a year. Why do these things have to happen so quickly?! Wah!!

Easter 2010

We had a wonderful Easter this past Sunday. We went on egg hunts.
We opened Easter baskets. We ate a lot of candy. A LOT. Scarlett had a sugar high to top all sugar highs. Observe...

We wore princess dresses and our special princess shoes. And ties and dressy shoes. (Well...some of us wore ties.)And we looked very, VERY much alike. (Seriously. Do they not look like twins in this picture.) We went to church, and managed to get a family photo. (I think our last one had been taken 9 months ago.)

Yay Easter!
