Egg Hunt

On Friday the girls were out of school.  We joined a local mom's group for their Easter craft and egg hunt.

Dyeing eggs

Madeline really got into coloring eggs this year and spent lots of time getting them just right.  She took her job quite seriously!  Olivia was happy to inspect the final products.

9 Months Old

Growing so's our little bug at 9 months!

Fun things this month:

Lots of outside play and her first trip to see the alligators
First carnival and rodeo
She's getting around but still has her signature crawl moves.  She pushes with one foot and crawls with the other.  Not extremely efficient, but it gets her where she needs to go!

Budding musician
She's pulling up on things and cruising around furniture
Sister snuggles
Playing with her kitty.  Sadly this is the last picture of them together, as we had to say goodbye to our dear friend Cosmo this week :(  They were great buddies and he was so good with both the girls!
Dress up with sister, singing the tunes..
Belting out the melody
Check out that stage presence!
Playing with toys
Look at those chubby little legs
I've been jokingly calling her snaggletooth, as her top side tooth made an appearance before her front teeth!
Boo! Did I scare you?
She loves her jumper and can really get the thing moving!
It's been fun watching her get more and more mobile and interact more with Madeline.  She wants to be right in the middle of everything.  We're in for another exciting month!

Busy weekend

On Saturday, we headed down to visit the alligators.  It was a successful alligator hunting trip as we spotted 40.  The weather was great and we all enjoyed being outdoors.  Most of the alligators were enjoying hanging out on the opposite bank, so we didn't get any good shots of them.  We did get lots of cute ones of the girls, though!

 Sunday took us to the rodeo.  Madeline was lucky to be joined by her friend Theron and they had a great time together.  Olivia was feeling a bit under the weather and just enjoyed being snuggled in the carrier.

Madeline also played a ton of dress up over the weekend.  This was her outfit of the weekend, looking fancy for the parade, as she said!
