Easter Eggs and Wolf Ears

While Doug had a week off between quarters, and Grandma Mary was visiting, and the kids had a half-day at school, we decided to go to the zoo for the afternoon. It was raining a bit, but we went anyway and had a fun time. Kate found this wolf ear headband in the gift shop and decided that it was the very thing to make her life complete. She bought it with her allowance money and then wore it constantly for the next few days.   At our annual neighborhood egg hunt, she was the only wolf in attendance.  ( I suppose they might pass for bunny ears if you don't look too closely.)

We used her gelli-printed valentine bag as an Easter basket. Multi-purpose!

Andy didn't get any eggs (he's not pushy enough), but he was happy to get out and play.

We've been enjoying the Spring weather and the flowers!  Ahhhhhh!

Kate, ready for school this morning!

That first tooth is a doozy.

We've had a rough couple of weeks. Kate was sick, and then Andy was sick, and missed an entire week of school. In the middle of it he also lost his first tooth. That was traumatic. I realized it was loose in the morning, and he had it out by about 2:00 that afternoon--just kept wiggling it the whole time. And then once it was out he cried and kept trying to put it back. We try to explain to him what's going on, but I don't think he really understands. Sad! 

It was a couple of days before I could get photos of his gap. You can see the new tooth peeking up already. (His lips are a bit puffy from all the poking and worrying.)

I'm not looking forward to repeating this experience! Maybe future teeth will get easier.
