Easter Egg Hunt

Back at the end of March, we went to the town's annual Easter Egg Hunt. It is always over very quickly, but luckily they provide other entertainment as well.

Almost There...

These pictures are from the end of March, when Andrew learned how to kneel...a crucial step in learning how to destroy your sisters' stuff. Suddenly his little table got a lot more fun.

Swing Low, Sweet Andrew

Andrew got a new toy so he can use the swing set, too. Serendipitously, it is also a great place to put him when I garden so he doesn't eat grass. :) Luckily he happens to like it.

Maddie likes it too.

Andrew: 8 Months

Diapers: size 3
Clothes: size 6-12 months

--baby puffs
--feeding himself

--Sitting up by himself
--Pushing himself to sitting
--Feeding himself {pincer grasp}
--using the sippy cup
--Valentine's day

Personality Notes:
--Andrew is still an easy, happy baby. He is the family favorite.
--It took him FOREVER to sit up on his own. But the change was sudden. One day he would flop over, and the next day he could sit up for ten minutes.
--About a week after he learned to sit up all by himself, he learned to push himself up to sitting.
--One day in Church, before he could even support himself sitting, Andrew reached into my hand, picked up a Cheerio, and put it in his mouth. I was astonished. Perhaps no one told him that gross motor skills are supposed to develop first; he was too busy working on his fine motor skills so he could eat! Such a boy.
