Easter was filled with lots of Samantha “filling” her basket.
Time with both Grandparents and lots of loving from the cousins!
Four Easter Egg Hunts in a matter of 48 hours.
(One was coordinated by her bff on the street who filled all the eggs for her post Easter).
Samantha beamed with delight as she once again found “candies” stuffed in the colored “balls”.
Yes, thats how she refereed to the Easter Eggs.
Its so funny, people look at me like “what did she say?” and I just KNOW.
I used to get looks of “huh” and “what did she say” all the time about what I WOULD say.
Truth be told, I still do.
So, now its hilarious to me, because I truly think Samantha speaks her own language.
Good thing I speak it as well.
Now, I just figure I am not the only strange one.
Its way more fun speaking in code, incomplete sentences, and phrases.
My High School English Honors Teacher would have a cow.
Good thing, I didn’t like her anyway.
|I like this ONE a lot More.
Especially sporting my new attempt at “pig-tails”.
We have been enjoying the return of the summer heat.
And making use of the water works around the neighborhood.
|Bikini’s on Babies.
A serious MUST.
We started swim lessons last week, 5 days in a row “spring intensive” which has now rolled into a mommy and me class with a handful of girlfriends and their babes.
Interested? Please join! Were having a blast 🙂
10 days straight in the water.
My little fish can now say “pool”, attempts the word “swim” and of course, screams at the top of her lungs when passing any body of water, because she just assumes were going in.
Upon passing rain gutters full of water I say “dirty”- and she says
“mama, dirty wa-wa”.
BUT still says “please” which means she would still like to go in.
We don’t get very far in the understanding dirty water department.
Could be my letting her jump through rain puddles adds to this on going problem.
The three of us have been attempting more reading in the evenings.
And by “reading”, I mean Samantha likes to point to the “bunny” in one book or look through her baby book from her first month home.
(Confession, this is the only book I have created for her).
(Second confession, She Doesn’t Care).
(Third confession, I seriously stink at scrapbooking).
|Reading With Daddy.|
We have spent some afternoons in the front yard playing with our neighbors and friends.
Samantha decided to build a fort.
She wore her diaper all afternoon.
I figured, why dirty another outfit.
It was warm out, okay?
We took a quick trip to the desert with grandma and grandpa & had a grand old time!
|Papa’s Birthday Dinner!|
|Styling in Sunnies!|
the whole way home, from Riverside to Irvine.
Its been a superb start to spring.
