10 Months old

 Ethan's such a stud that he can totally rock Addison's old pink baby swing!  (Don't worry, a blue one is in his near future thanks to some friends who have one to get rid of).  But let's be honest, does this look like the face of a baby who cares one bit about the color of his swing?

 Chilling out in the stroller during a recent trip to the zoo.

 Daddy was outside mowing in the back yard and Ethan just stood by the window watching him for the longest time.  I was so happy to have the camera all ready when David stopped by to say hello and they touched hands through the screen.  So sweet.

For the most part, Ethan is perfectly content just eating baby food and would rather avoid table food.  Although he did seem to enjoy his first taste of corn on the cob.

Easter (a little late)

Usually getting the kids dressed, fed, and checked into their classes at church by 9:30 (by myself) is quite an undertaking.  So I felt INCREDIBLY accomplished that we all got ready with time enough to spare to take this picture before church (and Addison's curls relaxed and Ethan drooled all over his clothes).

Aren't they just adorable?

Here's the "before" picture of Addison sporting her pink foam curlers the night before.

After lunch and Ethan's nap we drove up to Grandma and Grandpa Gafford's house where we took these next two pictures.

 Grandma and Grandpa had an Easter egg hunt waiting for the kids when we arrived.

Ethan was such a generous little brother.  He just sat back and cuddled Grandma and Grandpa and let Addison have all the eggs.  He told her that next year would be different though and she would need to share with him.

Ice Cream Truck

On Saturday afternoon we were out enjoying the 70 degree temps when we heard the music coming down the road. You know the music.  THE music every kid looks forward to hearing.  The sound of summer.  The sound of the ice cream truck driving through your neighborhood.  Somehow Addison made it all the way until 4 years old without experiencing this right of passage.  So never mind the fact that she'd literally JUST found 30 or so candy-filled Easter eggs around the yard, we grabbed the cash and the camera and waited at the end of the driveway with the kids from across the street.  Here are the pictures to commemorate her very first Ice Cream Truck Bomb Pop.
