Meijer Garden

It was a gorgeous day! The butterflies hatched, some last week, but there were still a lot of chrysalis hatching today! Trees and flowers and sculptures by Butterfield of horses out of scrap metal and drift wood! This place would be a photographer's dream! Two separate wedding parties showed up to have photos done on site and the girls and I watched in awe! Benedict had his first feel of sand and the touch of palm leaves!

Egg Hunt

500 eggs...two nights of stuffing with candy, money and stickers.
Hide them all around the yard, invite the neighbors over... Fun fun fun!
Wait, who left two new bikes in the woods?!? Could it be the Easter Daddy? Wow, legos in the woods? No way! Such excitement! Now we are off to Meijer Gardens for the butterfly hatching.


Ok, I say this every month but here we are again! Nine months old today! I can't wrap my head around how quick you grew and how LONG it seemed we had to wait for you to arrive? I am officially calling you my clone baby. You are exactly alike my Julia. Your vocabulary and comprehension is amazing and every day a new " trick" or word comes out! Your siblings are instrumental in teaching you as well. Your favorite thing seems to be attempting to walk or climb! You love going outside now and watch the bikes and kids go by! Your favorite board book is any of the repetitive ones like "five little monkeys" and "five little ducks"!
You are smiley and jovial but have expressed concern when newcomers come by. Here's what you don't like: bananas, diaper changing, and being left alone in your play yard! We discovered you do know how to cry and have been saving it up for nine months! Everyone thinks you look a lot like Emerson did at this age, maybe a bit more chubbier!
Happy Nine Months Old today! Love, Mommy
