Easter and Spring
We had an awesome Easter this year! Mister M loved it, and even D-Man got in on the action lol.
We did the egg hunt, and Mister-M had a treasure hunt for his gifts. Got to get outside and take some pictures too which was nice! Then for dinner we celebrated my baby sisters 18th birthday with some Shabu-Shabu and icecream cake!
(Shabu-Shabu is an asian dish which involves a simmering pot of seasoned broth in the middle of the table, and then bowls of ingredients like meat, vegetables, seafood raw on the side. You take the toppings, put them in a spider cooker (a little baskety thing) and cook it in the broth and then put it on top of some rice it's delicious).
Our spring photo shoot didn't happen, the weather was rainy and D-Man had been throwing up the day before so we're going to reschedule for a later date.
I've been getting more and more involved with different groups on the internet. My latest one is The Leaky B@@b on Facebook. It's a breastfeeding support/information group and it's just so amazing to know that there are people out there who nurse for as long as I do or longer, and love it as much. It's also nice to be able to give support and advice to those who need it too. I'm still really involved with the deal of the day sites, and have started to be involved with kidcrawl.com a site where mom's/dad's can rate and review different products and research things they might want to buy. It's been pretty helpful at times for sure.
We don't really have much planned for this week, Mister M's class is having a bake sale in support of Pedal for Hope (cancer research) on Wednesday so I've got to figure what we're going to make for it thats nut and egg free.
D-Man has pulled himself up to a full stand this week too! He's growing up so fast it's crazy. He still isn't crawling, but is starting to get on his knees a bit more, and is scootching along the floor on his bum to get to different toys and things, so we'll see if he walks or crawls first!
