As We Prepare for Easter

Here are a few pictures from around our home as we prepare for Easter. And a big shout out to Pinterest for all of the ideas :)

I made string egg garland for the mantle...

 We speckle painted eggs and decorated the dining room chalkboards...

I tea stained eggs and stamped them...

We dyed lots of colorful eggs...

But my favorite I'm putting Lilly-Belle to bed last night (after a really long day) and she says, "Tell me about Jesus, Mommy." That's how you really prepare for Easter.

Colson Turns 7!

It is so very hard to believe that 7 years ago I gave birth to this little peanut

and now he's 7 years old!

He decided he wanted a Power Ranger Party and instead of cake, he wanted an Icecream Sundae Bar. It was a fun party...but unfortunately, I forgot to take a lot of pictures. Guess we were too busy wrangling all of the kids!

I found a craft idea on Pinterest to make homemade puffy paint pictures. Here are a few pics of when we tested it out.

All you do is mix equal parts flour and salt and then add water to make it a paste like consistency. Once you've painted your picture (we used q-tips), pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and it will puff up.

We ended the day with dinner at Don Juans where he got to wear the sombrero while they sang Happy Birthday!

 I think he enjoyed his day! Happy Birthday Monkey.

Sam at 3 Months

Here's Sam-a-Doodle at 3 months!
Weight: 13lb This is an estimate based on our bathroom scale since he doesn't go back to the doctor until his 4 month checkup.

Length:  23.5 inches

Sleep: He is sleeping about 4-5 hours at a time, but in the past few days it's been 3 hours on the d.o.t! Can we say "growth spurt"??

Awake: He still enjoys his playmat for short periods, but he will now crane his neck and wiggle around to look at the t.v. Not really a fan of this habit, so unless we're watching something it's off. He loves to have me sing silly songs to him and make him do little dances.

He is not a fan of tummy time.
Eating: We're trying an Avent bottle, but with about as much success as the Similac one. Guess I won't be going anywhere for a while.
Other fun facts: He slept in his room for the first time on February 24th. It was hard for me and I left the crade beside our bed for about two weeks. I finally moved it to the corner of the room the other day...just in case he needs to use it. :)
He will carry on a conversation with you. I will talk and then ask him a question and he'll babble back. Of course, I pretend that I know exactly what he's saying and then we continue the exchange. I love this little man!
