Smiles and Sunshine!

Sorry Josh (I told him I wouldn't blog this one!). But it is just too darn cute of Hazel not to...

He's been teasing us for a few weeks, but Walter is finally starting to smile! He does it mostly for Hazel and daddy, but it just melts my heart when I see it.

Yesterday we did a little Easter egg hunt in the yard, since it was 76 degrees. The kids still aren't sure who put the eggs in the yard... since it was too early for the Easter bunny...

And we played with some sidewalk chalk of course too...

Well, our life is finally starting to feel a little more 'routine' (if there is such a thing)- and it only took 6 weeks! I had my check up yesterday, and I am recovered (other than being 20 pounds overweight at the moment- but I have lost 30 since I gave birth!) from childbirth, and my mastitis is much better. Wally officially turns 6 weeks old tomorrow, so I guess it is understandable that it may take me a little longer to lose the 50 pounds I gained. But time sure is flying. And, I turn 31 in a month- yikes!

We are starting to think about buying a house, since the process takes a little while sometimes and our lease is up August 1 on the rental. So, soon you'll all hear more about that process- probably more often than you want to... ;)

A couple of cute kiddos! Hazel does this thing lately (and by lately I mean every day!) where she comes out of Gus' room (with his help of course) in HIS clothes, and insists that we call them brothers (big brother, little brother and then Walter is the really little brother). I'm afraid I may have a Tomboy on my hands! Although I was able to get a pink sweatshirt on her in this picture, she is wearing his green shirt and blue striped pajama pants. At least we don't leave the house very often!

Well, love and miss you all! Our plan is to make our first trip back to Iowa the weekend after next over spring break. It is hard to believe that it is spring break time already.
