April Happenings

March started our few months of birthday celebrations. We had a niece born (Brooklyn) and our best friends had a baby boy (Eli). From March - June, the girls have 4 uncles, 5 aunts, 5 cousins, great-grandma, mom, dad, and both of their own birthdays. Maybe our baby will come a few days earlier to add another June birthday. We also have had 4 of their friends invite them to birthday parties in the last few weeks. They have learned to sing "Happy Birthday" very well. They take turns playing whose birthday it is, then sing and pretend to blow out candles. It's really cute especially to hear Lucy trying to sing.
Our weather has been gorgeous so we have been able to spend a lot of time outdoors. We ventured to Boxerwood Gardens to play and have a picnic. The girls had so much fun. Aunt Zebra came down for the day to hang out with the girls, then took Leland on a special birthday date for ice cream and shopping. They had a lot of fun.

Lucy's new favorite word is "Wait!" You can see in the above picture she is yelling wait with her hand stretched out. She likes to yell it especially after being put in bed to sleep. The first few times I fell for her cute little voice yelling, wait! I would go back in her to see what she needed, only to realize she didn't need anything at all.

Lucy is also obsessed with Peter Pan. She calls it Fly and asks to watch it or listen to the music several times a day. She has started being able to sing certain Disney songs. She doesn't get the words out, but definitely the tune. It's pretty adorable to watch and listen to her.

Today was Chuck's LAST LAW SCHOOL FINAL!! Woohoo!! I'm not sure either of us can feel total relief quite yet, now it's on to finding a job and prepping for the Bar Exam.

Today is my last day in my 20's. It's not as depressing as I thought it would be. I'm excited to be 30. Bring it on!!


  1. Congrats to Chuck! I can't believe they are both done, doesn't it seem just so unreal?

    And Happy Birthday! Welcome to the 30 year olds club!
