This year was a different Easter but still a good one. First of all...it was itty Olli's first Easter!
Easter was early this year and so it was pretty chilly! We made our eggs of course. I made a couple for Olli and Milo. Luca made his all green or blue and Ella made a sister egg for Olli and a BFF egg for her bestie Abby :)

 We shared Easter this year with some friends old and new. We missed our family terribly but the day ended up being very good. We hosted a delicious dinner and made our families traditional favorites. 

And of course the Easter bunny came!

The day was so wild and crazy that the only pics I got of were Olli before church in her Easter dress! After that, it was chaos and then over so no family pics or egg hunt pics or anything :( Becky happened to catch one of Izze and Olli on an egg hunt. Thank goodness for the big church because we had tons of eggs and it was WET AND COLD!!!

 I guess I forgot I live in Seattle because I chose this little onesie for her day attire haha.
 Wearing big sissy's first tutu!!!
 And here was our bitsy all dressed up for church. There is truly nothing sweeter than a baby girl in an Easter bonnet!

 And now this week we are nursing colds and taking it slow to settle down from such a fun filled weekend! And this is Milo...adamantly denying the fact that he got out up during nap time and smuggled is big bros easter candy to bed. Ha! Let the games begin!
Ella playing a little dress up with her baby sis...

 All for now! Our next big adventure to plan is our summer trip to Arkansas for weddings and graduations and birthdays Oh My!

This and That

Look at these long beautiful locks...
Well...Milo doesn't do well with hair cuts and after our traumatic experience last time I decided we'd go bigger so we don't have to go much until he makes his peace with the salon :) I made an appointment but it was so long that it was just a mess. Plus, I'm super nervous about what might transpire so I decided to do the scary buzz part and let the stylist do the technical part. So until we get there...
hipster baby is rocking a man bun!

It really fits his personality well and is so cute.
He has really been branching out lately...he is looking a lot at his big bro and sissy and has decided that he can do anything they can and all the sudden he wants to keep up!

Like yoga...

and even having his picture taken!

and about those cute bunny ears and suckers...Nana B sent us a box of Easter goodies that we have been playing with all week leading up to Easter!
Olli's first bunny! Nana B gets everyone their first bunny stuffy for Easter :)
Is it just me or does Olli look a lot like her bunny?

Ella and her friends at a birthday party for a friend after a DOUBLE sleepover! This girl is growing up so fast!
Olli is about to start sitting up!!! Which means then she'll be wanting to take off!
 Look at that sweet smile...so proud of herself!
 I think its too cute that her cute big round head sits on such a tiny body :)
I can't wait to put pig tails on this fuzzy fuzzy little head of hers!
The days are going by fast you guys. I try to take it all in and stay calm and be in the moment. Sometimes I'm too tired to think at the end of the day. But then these little reminders pop up to remind me that kids live here and these days are fleeting. 
Milo was here...
 And while Mommy has been keeping up with growing babies, cutting toddler hair, chasing toddler boy, delivering big kids to events, playdates, sleepovers, she may have hit a wall this week when she watched her coffee pour everywhere with her mug right NEXT too the machine. Oops :) It was clear I needed to add another shot of espresso to that cup! Ha!
 Just doing a little afternoon reading with mommy after her nap...

 Also...Ella (left) and Olli (right)...Olli started making this face when she's focused and it took my right back to baby Ella's sweet little face about 8 years ago...and the cheeks!!!
