Thank you, Easter Bunny

Zachary thought the Easter Bunny was quite fascinating on Saturday morning. He was very intrigued by the bunny's glasses and tophat (a very well-dressed bunny this was). Zachary patted Mr. Bunny's hand and gave him five when the bunny was walking around. But when it came time to sit on Mr. Bunny's lap, you would have thought he was a psycho killer by Zachary's attempt to wriggle away from him. The photographer was able to snap one fairly decent shot, but most of them look like stills from a horror movie (minus any blood shedding, of course).

Easter photos

Check out those shoes- just because he's a boy doesn't mean I can't buy him fun shoes.

We hope to go visit the Easter Bunny this weekend.

In the blink of an eye

my baby became a little man. Sigh.

Round and round we go

It seems like we alternate being sick in our house. I don't think all three of us have been well at the same time for more than five minutes at a time.

Despite our sickies, Zachary has reached his 15-month milestone. I am still amazed every time I looked at him that he is such a little boy and not at all a "baby." Some of his favorite pursuits right now include pushing and pulling his "popper" lawn mower and sitting. I had removed one of the couch cushions in the living room as I was cleaning up a spill on the side (love the ease of micorfiber!). Since the couch was now essentially lower, Zachary co-opted this area and sat reading books to himself. Usually, he will bring me book after book to read (over and over each one), but on the day he got to sit on the cushionless couch, he was all about being cosy with his books by himself. It was the cutest darned thing.

I struggle with his limits testing- like throwing a tantrum when he is told no and redirected. I know intellectually that he is not developmentally able to comprehend some things, but it can be frustrating when he laughs at correction and repeats the behavior. He is still very clingy and usually prefers mama, which is a mixed blessing. Poor Daddy feels left out at times.
