A warm Easter in Houston
I'm not sure you guys remember how very young (and uncooperative) babies are at 14 months - I know I had forgotten. They don't really understand holidays and celebrations that much yet (ha!... we treat Emma like every day is a holiday), and they don't understand that many words yet either, so you can forget explaining things to them (as if they'd listen - but by two, they start talking and understanding a 'lot' more). They're like little time bombs (I mean that in a good way though - everything is on a DNA schedule). Now that Emma is walking, I just know that running will come next, and then there's going to be no stopping her. My job will to keep up with her - here's hoping I can do it!
Emma is walking all over the house, (with the exception of getting upstairs which we've gated off), pushing doors open (me worrying about smashed fingers) , opening cupboards..... well, you get the picture: doing a good job of tearing the place apart - and I'm sure it'll get worse before it gets easier. But she's lots of fun, we love her to death, and we're up to the task.
Carol, I'm including a picture of some of the flowers on our property that we were told were fuchsias when we bought the house. Let me know if they're not. As you can see, the foliage is already getting very thick here - Spring got here fast, and everything filled in quickly once it arrived. Our dogwoods (white) are all blooming now too (but they won't last long).
By the way, we had a good Easter down here in Houston. Over ate, enjoyed some beautiful weather and took it easy. Hope everyone else had a great Easter too !
