Spring seems to be here at long last, though winter doesn’t seem to want to go down without a fight. After two or three freak snowfalls, it seems to be staying consistently above freezing. That means more trips to the park for Hannah, who’s becoming accustomed to the swings and doing her Supergirl thing on them. Hannah turned Sweet 16 Months old last week and gets to wear more cute girly dresses. She’s also discovering the simple pleasure of going for a walk with mommy and grammy and swinging a bucket around in circles.
On Saturday, I dropped by Dennis and Kara’s place to celebrate their little boy’s one-year birthday. I got meet Kara’s parents while I was there as the kids stuffed their faces with cupcakes and the grownups had chili and wine together.
On Easter Sunday, Hannah got to wear more cute things for church, and then she went on her very first Easter Egg hunt back at home. She picked up on the concept right away, toddling around the yard picking up colored eggs and bringing them back to her little bucket. If you watch the video below, you might hear some examples of Hannah-ese. Her perspicacity is increasing by leaps and bounds, but it sometimes takes a little creative interpretation. (She calls dogs “Bwah,” which is the sound she makes to imitate a dog’s bark.) Inside, we had Easter baskets full of chocolate and bubbles, and then assembled our standard fare for Easter dinner together with the grandparents.
