Spring is here!!

Man do I have Spring Fever! The weather has been beautiful and that alone has had a big effect on everyone's mood it seems. I love being able to take the kids out to recess. I love that the sun is still shining brightly when I get home from work. I love driving with the sunroof open and not having to put a jacket on. I love new Spring clothes! One more week of school before Spring Break. We don't have plans to go anywhere, just hanging out at home will be vacation enough for me!

Audrey did great with her bunny pictures last weekend. They should be in soon! Here's a picture of her on the way to the studio:

She's been a very picky eater this week (not hungry one day, normal the next...not hungry at all for lunch but starved for dinner...) Tonight was great though! Chris made an amazing meat loaf. I put some on her tray along with some corn, and didn't offer her anything else. Of course she played with it at first, and just as Chris and I were finishing our plates, she started eating it right up! Then I tried something new that we picked up earlier today at Target: Happy Baby Mac and Cheese patty. Each patty has a full serving of "hidden veggies." Well, she LOVED it! I also bought the veggie tots which I'll try out tomorrow. I'm hoping she consistently likes these because I've been stressing about her lack of desire for real people food. While I'm bummed she's not eating whole fruits and veggies, this is at least a step in the right direction!

Chris got me an ipod touch for my birthday. I love it! I've been downloading tons of podcasts (I especially love the ones about LOST!) and some very cool apps. I downloaded a bunch for Audrey, my favorite being flash cards with sounds. She loves them and knows how to change the pictures by moving her finger across the screen. There's also an app that tells children's stories. She holds the ipod up to her ear and listens intently, it is so adorable.

Tomorrow we are going to see the Easter Bunny. I really don't know what to expect. She hated Santa and I don't see a ginormous rabbit being any different.

Your Santa picture was priceless! We are visiting the Easter bunny tomorrow too. We shall see Ian hated Santa too. Funny how Audrey is a picky eater our little guy eats everything in sight. He did not used to be this way we just kept offering him different things to eat and one day it just clicked. He loves guacamole and spinach. He also loves pasta pickups by Gerber. The funny thing is he won't eat fruit. We give him "mish-mash" packages of fruit and he loves them. He some times eats two at a time. But that is the way we sneak fruit in on a daily basis. He also loves frozen peas and corn as snacks, gotta love that about him. Good luck.

LOVE the ipod to the ear! So precious!! Good luck with the Easter Bunny .... on this end, we have a picture of Cole with the Easter Bunny, but Jake wanted absolutely NO PART OF THE HUGE Bunny :-) He was like that with Santa, too. Look forward to hearing/seeing about it :-)

I'm so jealous you have nice weather. It's been cold here! Good luck with the Easter Bunny! We tried 3 times with Santa and I don't think we're attempting the Easter Bunny this year.
