And speaking of helping out, here he is planting carrot seeds for me. I love how he goes out on the plank across the raised garden bed for me. :)

Jack was helping with dinner.... He went out to the garden with a basket and scissors, and brought me chives and thyme! He was darned proud. :)

We've been trying to have Jack not take naps anymore. Here he is at quiet time, valiantly attempting to stay awake....

Evie found the perfect teething ring at a playdate. I have to find some for us to buy for her!

And this one! Meanwhile Jack looks like a zombie because he's COMPLETELY engrossed in the story!

I love Evie's face here. :)

Here's Evie being enraptured by the chickens. This was her first time really noticing the animals, and BOY was she dazzled!


We went to Chris's farm today. She has a "ka-pee-no" (this word is Jack's special combination of 'guitar' and 'piano') that Jack loves to bang on whenever he gets the chance. :)

Evie eats!

Evie has been very excited to start eating foods. She is eating pureed veggies and fruits, teething biscuits, and various incarnations of rice cereal.

I just got her some small rice puffs, which proved to be VERY difficult for her. She had to do a lot of whacking and punching while trying to get her hands to cooperate!

She snagged one!

Here it is trying to jump back out of her mouth, but....

She finally gobbled it!!

I let her hunt a few until she got frustrated, and then I picked them up and fed them to her. She's on her way to grown up things, but she still has a little way to go!

Happy 6-month-day, Evie!

For everybody who doesn't get to play with her on a regular basis, here's a little Evie on her 6-month "birthday". :)

silly kiddos

I just put batteries in Evie's jumper chair, and she and Jack got totally silly over it. :)

(I didn't think to keep the camera upright.... so sorry about the sideways view!)

Tulip Festival

On April 27, I took the kids to a fairly local (one hour away) tulip festival. It was a gorgeous experience, despite the freezing wind. Evie spent all day snuggled up close, so I don't have any pictures of her. Here's what I do have:

teething baby

Evie has two teeth and is hard at work on more. Today she got her first teething biscuit! (Incidentally, what ever happened to Zwieback? I can't find them anywhere!)
