Easter Firsts

This past weekend was Maggie's first Easter. It was also the first Easter that Caroline had any idea what was really going on. And the first Easter where she officially hunted eggs.

And since i'm still trying to figure out when to squeeze blogging time in, i'm just going to post a ton of pictures for you to peruse and skip trying to write some big explanation of our holiday.

Community Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday-

Posing with Nana before the big hunt began

Borrowing Cousin A's shades since it was so bright

Her very first Easter egg...and one of the only ones she got.
The rules beforehand said parents couldn't go help kids.
As you can see, a ton of parents listened to the rules (sarcasm intended).
So Caroline only got to 3 eggs before all the other kids (aka parents) grabbed the rest of the eggs.

Nana came to the rescue, though, and helped her finish the hunt.

Picking a flower.

At the end of her first egg hunt.

Easter Sunday morning -

Opening her basket.
 She's saying, "Thank you, Mommy." Which is her way of requesting that i open the egg and give her what's inside. We're still working on when exactly you say Thank you and Please.

 i asked her to show me her Minnie Mouse nail polish from her basket.
This is the best i got.

Caroline makes funny faces now instead of smiles.

Showing off her eggs to Daddy.

The best sister picture we got.

Happy Easter!
He is risen. He is risen indeed.



i call this one Let me show you how this works, Baby Sister.

and i call this one See, you shake this tiger here...are you even looking?

There's a lot of "playing" with baby sister around here.
i feel like i'm constantly saying, "Be careful for Maggie!"
But it's so cute how much she loves her already.

It's Friday.
Which means the next two days, Daddy will be home with us.

Hope you have fun plans for the weekend.

Happy Weekending!


Sister, Sister

Everyone has been asking me if i think Maggie looks like Caroline. Or if she looks more like me or J when we were babies. Or they comment that they think Maggie looks nothing like they remember Caroline looking. Or they think they look similar.

So, i thought i'd actually compare photos and see. i put together 2 different pictures from when the girls were both about 2-3 days old.

So far, i see some similarities, but also some differences. Caroline was definitely more yellow, thanks to higher levels of jaundice. And while J and i both thought Maggie had a rounder face, seeing the pictures together now makes it seem like Maggie has a longer face and Caroline has a rounder face.

But they definitely look like sisters to me.


FOTO FRIDAY - #newaddition

i call this one Hands full.

i call this one Hello, Baby Maggie.

Last Wednesday, we added a baby sister to our family mix.
And it's been the most wonderful and tiring week i've experienced in a while.

Remember how people say new moms should sleep when the baby is sleeping?
Well, what do you do when you also have a toddler running around?

If you figure that out, let me know.

Our weekending includes visits from family
and, hopefully, lots and lots of naps.

Happy Friday!



i call this one "Look how cool i am in my hat."

And this one "i want to see myself in the lens."

Whenever we go to Target, which is more than i care to share,
Caroline and i check out the dollar section.
The other day we found this cool hat.
i asked her if she wanted a hat and she said, "Yeah."
Then i asked her if she wanted the blue or the green ribbon one.
She picked out the blue.
And has worn it almost everyday since.

She's way cooler than i was at this age. 

It's Friday.
My weekend plans are bringing a new-mom friend dinner,
skyping with the grandparents,
a prenatal massage (YES!),
and starting my 38th week of this pregnancy.
We'll see if my weekending ends up including labor and delivery.
Hopefully i can get that prenatal massage first.

Happy Weekending!
