Cute April Pictures

Here are a few pictures from the last week that I like. We're all doing pretty well. Aidan is in a major Bethie phase--he spent the night at her house both Monday and Wednesday nights this week, which is a huge treat for Ryan and me. Having only one child to focus on now feels like a vacation! I have started going to aerobics classes with my friend Wendy...only two classes so far, but it feels great to be getting back into a routine. Ryan is sweet enough to take care of the kids by himself while I do that, and it's nice for me to have a little bit of time to myself. Hope everyone is doing great!

Just a Couple More Pictures from Today

I am just loving this little girl! It is amazing how much calmer and more relaxed you are as a parent the second time around. Besides the sleep issues, she makes everything really easy on us. The funniest thing about her is that she is just unbelievably busy and is always reaching for things, grabbing things, trying to put paper in her mouth, knocking things over, etc. We joke that she just has a lot to get done each day! Aidan was a very mellow baby and would sometimes just sit in our laps and hang out...Lauren is much more active! We can't tell if she's going to crawl or not, since she doesn't spend a whole lot of time out of our arms. We've been trying to give her a little more floor time each day.

Happy Easter!

We had a fun day today with an egg hunt and Easter baskets at home in the morning, and then an Easter party with a yummy lunch and another egg hunt at Margaret and Dan's house. Lauren wore one of the outfits we got for her in Taiwan. We missed seeing our family in the Midwest for Easter (we've gone out there a few times for the holiday) and hope we can make the trip next year!
