Happy Spring! In classic Indiana fashion, we ushered in Spring with 70 degree temperatures one week and snow flurries the next! We will take whatever sunshine we can get though...and we make sure we're outside as much as possible when it's warm. Last weekend, we took Ethan and Emerson over to IU's campus and just walked around the Sample Gates and let Ethan run around. Eric's had fun taking him outside after he gets home from work on the days where it's been nice. When the cold temps hit again, we stayed busy having play dates, lunch dates, and hanging out at home!
Big news in Ethan's world is him and daddy got a bird feeder! It's in the backyard and in perfect view for Ethan to look out the window and see all the birds. He always says, "birdies come home now." One day, there was a bunny rabbit that was eating the bird seed and he absolutely loved it. He takes his bird feeder very seriously...must take after his dad (who secretly is googling what type of birds we have!)
Call us crazy, but we went to Target and bought Ethan a baseball tee and have been playing baseball inside our tiny house all week! He loves it! Of course I need to brag on him - he seriously hits the ball every time he puts it on the tee - it's so cool! Even better?? He bats LEFT handed?!?! He does every thing else right handed, but instinctively has been holding the bat lefty. Yessss, hopefully this means he will ambidextrous and will get a college scholarship hahaha!! =)
Emerson is doing great and just turned nine months old (full update coming soon)! We are just amazed at everything she does now and feel like we're in the "newborn phase" because we didn't get to enjoy the first half of her life thus far because of colic. She's just a happy, gorgeous little babe! Sometimes I forget she's at the point now where she can be eating "real" food so I've tried to get better about feeding her tiny pieces of fruit, bread, and veggies. We've never doubted the fact that this girl likes to eat!
March Madness is in full swing and we've had fun watching lots (and lots!) of basketball. We got all decked out in our IU gear for Indiana's game...ahhh, very short lived =) It's funny because every time we turn on a game, Ethan thinks IU is playing and says "Hoosiers! Hoosiers"!
We celebrated my dad and I's birthday this month too! Per usual, we stretched out the birthday celebrations over several days =) It was great grilling out with Papaw, Ginka, Uncle Jeffrey, and the boys and then having a wonderful lunch with Pops the next day! On my actual birthday, it was a special treat because Eric was home and I got to spend all day with him and the kiddos =) He woke up with both Ethan and Emerson and treated me to chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast! Then we went to lunch at a place we had never tried before and that night grabbed a drink at a new bar here in town. Ethan picked out my birthday card...Mickey Mouse of course =)
|Ah, life with two. One eating my hair and one having a meltdown.|
It was a super fun month and we're definitely looking forward to the warmer temperatures sticking around for good!!
