Sweet boy

Last night I was lying in bed with my What to Expect book open.  Nate was next to me.  He saw a picture that looked something like this:
This is our conversation:
Nate: That's Claire in your belly.
Mama: Yep, Claire's in my belly.
N: I wanna be in your belly.
M: You do?
N: Yea. I'm too big.  I need to get small so I can go in there and play with the toys.
M: Really?  What kind of toys do you think are in Mama's belly?
N: I don't know.  Probably baby toys.

I thought it was so funny that we relayed the story to Daddy a few minutes later.  Nate informed us that I probably have "bathtub toys" in there.  What a cutie.

I love my life.

Happy Day

Nate and I had a relaxing day today.  Nate woke up and found that the Easter Bunny left him a basket.  He loved his new light up toothbrushes and his jelly bean filled eggs.  We also got a new Cat in the Hat book that I'm sure we'll read tonight. A cute little story is that Nate calls jelly beans "Sweet Rocks".  He's watched The Ant Bully on Netflix (a million times) and that's where he learned it.  Sweet rocks just sound better than jelly beans, don't they?

Protecting his identity. Forget you just saw his face one picture prior.

We had our friend Rebecca and her boys over for brunch - it was delightful.  I was feeling fancy with my grape juice and ginger ale cocktail.  It's the pregnant girl's mimosa.
When my sister and her girls were here on vacation just a few weeks ago, we also had an Easter celebration.  We had a nice dinner with all the family , the kids decorated eggs, and we had an Easter egg hunt.  They were some mighty happy kiddos.

Last weekend we also headed to a park for some Eggstravanza-tastic fun.  Nate loved the bouncy house (he was first in), the petting zoo and he took his first pony ride.  He LOVED it (although it lasted like 30 seconds).  His horse's name was Rocket.
According to Nate, this is the REAL Easter Bunny.  Her name is Polka Dot.

Here is our 2011 attempt at visiting the Easter bunny.  Very timid and shy.  This was as close as he'd get...after much prodding.  Hope you and your families had a great day!

Opening Day

I posted some pics from my sister's trip out here on facebook the other day and told my mom. 
Mom: "Posted them on the blog or on facebook?"
Me: Laughing "yeah, like I've gotten around to updating the blog." 
Mom: "I was giving you the benefit of the doubt."


Last Sunday was opening day for our Norfolk Tides.  It was a gorgeous sunny day game and we had a blast easing our way back into baseball season. They won 9-3 in what may be the first game we've actually seen them win.  Go Tides!
