Her school closed for "spring break" - seriously, spring break for 1 year olds....so my parents came down to help out during the week off. It happened to fall over Easter, and also over the weekend that my sister-in-law & mother-in-law planned a Baby Brunch to celebrate our little guy as well as my other sister-in-laws pending arrival, so my mom was able to join that as well. It was a busy but fun week.
Our weekends have been pretty low key - catching up with friends, park dates, play dates, coffee dates, and a few real dates for me and Brian.
Just last weekend, we had the whole Lederman family over to celebrate Mike's birthday. It's so fun to see all the kids playing together. And also surprising at how quickly 5 kids can get out so many toys.
Here are some (ok, a lot) of my favorite photos:
|Helping me decorate some St. Paddy's Day cookies. She also helped make the dough and roll & cut the dough.|
Her favorite part was rolling/cutting - it was like clay.
And, she was also a fan of eating the cookies.
|Reading with Dada - we're finally making progress on pulling her hair out of her face|
|bouncing on Dada. aka Hop on Pop|
|The first day I caught her with her hands in pockets ("pocks)"|
|Here we are sweeping - she loves it|
I'm not so excited about this game
|Silly Dada put bracelets on her ears|
|Another sweeping session - but I think it's just a cute photo of her|
|Ladies in green for St Paddy's Day|
|Story time with Grandpa|
|Last year, she wouldn't touch the grass|
Now she is laying in it
|Sydney actually had a blast dying eggs.|
She mixed every bowl a million times
|Then got to decorate the eggs with stickers. It was a big hit.|
We were a little more concerned about the eggs during this step
but most made it out without too many cracks
|Billy came over for an Egg Hunt on Easter morning|
With no instruction, both kids knew exactly what to do and were shocking really good at it.
|Billy had a small spill and Sydney took advantage of the fallen eggs.|
Their eggs were full of cheerios, wheat chex, teddy grahams and a few with
jelly beans and yogurt covered raisins
I'm sure you can guess which ones were the crowd favorite
|Both my babies with 3 weeks to go until they are both on the outside|
|with MarMe & Grandpa Billy|
|bucket head - keeping us entertained|
|I love her expression, so proud of helping out|
|me & Adina - we are due within 10 days of each other!|
|Reading her favorite books|
|Just a lazy Sunday morning|
|racing Dada down the slide|
|The chef gets the first taste, obviously.|
Sydney has been helping cook a lot lately.
|And Dada can have a bite too|
|Cute photo at her friend August's house|
|Uncle Sean coloring with most of the cousins|
|All the current cousins|
Hard to believe we'll have 2 babies to add into this photo in the next few weeks
|Smile Sydney! Such a cheesy grin|
In case you were wondering if she looks more like Mama or Dada - you tell me.
|Brian on left - they look identical here|
|Me on the left - but now I have second thoughts|
