Family Visit!

Jeff's cousin Angi graduated from UM this weekend (congratulations Angi!) so her brother, Kenney, his wife, Candace and their two kids stayed with us overnight to attend the graduation ceremony. Today after the ceremony we had a playdate. Nick and Bella had so much fun! They are too cute - and about the same size, although Bella is almost 6 months older :)

Nick loves playing peek-a-boo with blankets.

Happy Easter!

We had a great Easter this year. Nick woke up and found all the eggs we hid for him in the great room. He exchanged the eggs for some small toys from mom and dad - no official basket this year. Then we headed over to Grammie and Grandpa's for brunch. Nick loved Grammie's egg casserole and playing with all the toys Grandpa has stocked up in the basement for grandkids. After nap, we went to the park in downtown Northville, played in the sandbox, did some climbing and went for a walk. Then we had a nice low-key dinner at home. What a great day!

Nick loves to watch the squirrels on Grammie and Grandpa's deck.

Return to the Zoo!

We had nice weather today and so we decided to go to see what Bunnyville at the Detroit Zoo is all about - yeah, us and about 1,000,000 other metro Detroiters! It was great to see so many families out and enjoying the Zoo. Luckily we arrived pretty early - when we left, cars were parked everywhere, even on the grass and against curbs, because there were just so many people there. Nick loved seeing all the animals and we see many zoo trips in our future!

Nick's 2 Year Stats!

Today Nick had his 2 year well-baby visit. He weighed 29 lbs (clothed) (he got to step on an adult scale instead of being weighed on the baby scale, I almost cried! He's so big!!!), 33 3/4 inches tall and his head is 48.5 in circumference. His pedi checked everything out - chest, ears, teeth, hips, etc. Nick didn't bat an eyelash, didn't cry - and best of all, didn't need any shots! And we don't have to go back until he's 3! :)

Happy Second Birthday!

Oh Nick, I am so proud of myself - I only cried twice yesterday and teared up once today! I am just so amazed by you. Every day you are learning something new, running, jumping, playing, being so loving and cheerful. I miss the baby that you once were but I am so in love with the little boy that you have become and Mom and Dad both love watching you grow up!

Two Year Pictures!

Tomorrow is Nick's birthday, so today we took him to Portrait Innovations for his two year pictures. We didn't have as great of an experience as we did for the Christmas pictures, but this shot is pretty good!! :)

Have I mentioned Nick turns TWO tomorrow?? I have no idea where the time has gone . . . Jeff and I ask each other all the time, where did this running, talking, busy, adorable toddler come from??? Ha ha!
