Happy Easter!

Here are my precious two kids on Easter. Don't mind Lucy's face. She really wasn't that unhappy.
Micah took part in one of our church's Easter traditions. On Palm Sunday the 2-5 Sunday School class enters the sanctuary waving palm branches and then they sing a couple of songs for us. He did a bit better at singing than at Christmas time, but holding a palm branch is a huge distraction for a 3 year old.

Micah had fun dying Easter eggs with Adam. We were super busy all day getting ready for the family to come over on Sunday so we squeezed it in right before bed.

After we were done with the eggs we told him to give everyone a kiss (grandma and grandpa were here too). He thought we meant the eggs, so he kissed each one of them goodnight.

On Sunday we had the family here at our house. The cousins had a great time with their egg hunt. And yes, Lucy is not happy here. She was minutes from going down for a nap, but had to stay up for just a bit to take a picture.

One Month Old

Well, we have survived the first month. What does one say about a 1 month old. She eats, sleeps and poops. She is on a good schedule of eating every 3 hours and is working on longer hours at night. She started reacting to us and smiling about week 3, which is so fun. Micah is a great big brother. He calls her his sweetie sweet. He is always concerned about her when she cries and wants to comfort her. He loves to sing to her, put her pacifier in her mouth, and help hold her bottle. Adjusting to life with Lucy and taking care of her has definitely been easier this time around. Adjusting to life with two children has been a bit harder. Micah loves to have his parents as his playmates and has had to learn to play alone a bit more than he is used to. But on the whole we are doing okay. We are truely blessed.

Bath Time

Lucy had her first bath. I know I shouldn't compare everything to Micah, but I will anyways. Micah hated his first bath. He cried the entire time. So this is what I expected out of Lucy. Instead Lucy loved the bath. She was happy and enjoyed the whole thing.
We of course, had a little helper. Micah loved watching and washing Lucy. He really is great with her. He loves helping with lots of Lucy's daily things.
The best part was snuggling afterwards.
