At four months she sleeps with her arms straight up over her head, wants to be held every second of every day, yells (not a cry but a prissy shout) when she doesn't get her way, is stingy with her giggles, and loves to rub noses. She also got her second round of vaccinations while we were at the doctor, and this time, she spiked a fever and has been pretty restless and cranky. Cranky or not, my sweet girl adds excitement and spontaneity to each day, and I look forward to seeing what accomplishments and joys each new day bring her.

And of course Maddi couldn't miss out on all of the holiday excitement. She wanted to be right up at the table amid all of the egg coloring action, so this is the first time she sat in her high chair. She can almost sit up on her own, but we tucked a blanket in around her for a little extra support. I know the face is awkward, but she's about to say something I'm sure. She's such the little blabbering chatter box lately...if only she knew a few real words. Then I wouldn't have to play the guessing game every time she cried.
My sister Gracie had a game on Saturday. She hit an amazing line drive down the third base line and a home run!
We went to the car show on Saturday night. They have a car show at an empty lot by our house once a month during the spring/summer. This picture has lame cars in it, but there were some really cool ones there. I'll take better pictures next time.
We got our tax return this week (YAY!!) After we payed off the necessary bills, we bought Guitar Hero World Tour Edition. This game is SO FUN. We have spent hours playing together. We have drums, a bass guitar, lead guitar, and a microphone. We have the best time laughing and playing and singing together... you'd think we were a real band :)
Here's Maddi's Easter dress. She's so precious!
We also went to a birthday party for one of Drew's classmates. Well, as you can see, our week has been a little busy, and I thought I had everything marked in my mental calendar. So, we got to the birthday party at 11AM. Got the kids out of the car, tried to unwrinkle the present that had been mushed and stomped on in the car, went inside, told Drew to go find his friends in the play area, and tossed the pretty pink present down on the table. As I'm making my way over to the other parents to mingle, Sean comes over to me and ever so discreetly says 'Hey babe. Are you sure Kayla's party was at 11, cause the cake on the table says Happy Birthday Gabe and all of the other present are wrapped in blue.' Dang it! What is my problem!?! I'm just glad Sean was there cause there's no telling how long I would have sat there before I realized I didn't know anyone. Seriously... I need to get it together!

And that was only the beginning of our night! We had a great time taking on the challenge of making this event run smoothly and I always love learning about other cultures, but be forewarned... if you ever get an invite to a rice feeding at a rather questionable location, you might want to stick a plate in your purse.... just in case.
