Still Here!

This last week has been... bleh! So busy! I don't mean to have neglected my blooger, but sadly, I have. I'm hoping to get some fun posts up this week! Look for them!

Easter was great on Sunday. We did A LOT of visiting, and Kola was soooo good! A few sideways glances here and there but for the most part, very agreeable to being passed around and adored by the masses of my large family! He looked very handsome in his little sweater vest, and his sneakers stayed on almost all day. He wow-ed everyone with his competent crawling (he has mastered the opposite-crawl, right leg + left arm forward, left leg + right arm forward, repeat) and his ability to stand up and cruise around whatever is baby height. He loved all of the presents he received - a garden cart and gardening toys from Mama, a sandbox from his Godparents, a swimming pool and some clothes from Baba & Papa. He's all set for summer! He also loved eating eggs all day - he loves eggs! Maybe because I love eggs....

Easter presents! Garden Cart & Gardening Utensils & Swim Trunks! Oh my!

Yesterday, we visited with my very best of friends, Monica (from Peach & Pimento) and her wonderful famibly! She was in town for the (extended) weekend, visiting her family in Ohio. Monica's eldest daughter, the Peach, turned 4 yesterday! We met at the Museum of Natural History in Cleveland and spent a couple of hours wandering through the museum, looking at the dinosaur bones, the indigenous flora and fauna of Ohio, and at Lucy (possibly Peach's favorite). Little Pimento and Little Kola spent the afternoon nuzzled in Mama-pouches attached to our fronts; Pimento dozing, Kola being a ham and pretending to listen to me talk about Coelacanths (my favourite fish!) and the Great Chambered Nautilus (my favourite cephalopod!). We finished the evening with dinner at Monica's Mama's house and dined on delicious potato pancakes from Corky & Lenny's (if you're in Cleveland, you gots to check it out!) and Super Surprise Birthday Cake Ice Cream (so good!). Monica's one of my only friends that I've retained for years, no fail, and we can always pick up just where we left off. It's great that we both have wonderful little families. I think Motherhood fits us both very well, and it will be wonderful to watch each other's family's grow and mature, and eventually Kola and Pimento will be married (we're working out the dowry now). Okay, maybe not, but we can dream, right? At least they'd surely make pretty babies together since they're two of the cutest in the world now!

Anyways, it was a great (extended) weekend, despite the not so great weather.

I hope everyone's was equally as nice!
