We've been busy

But I promise to update soon with all the fun stuff we did when Auntie Laura was in town!

Hint - It was at LEAST this much fun:

Children's Museum

Amery made his first trip to the Austin Children's Museum on Sunday. We took advantage of the free hour offered by the museum from 4 to 5 pm every Sunday. That hour exceeds his toddler attention span by a good 45 minutes so that was plenty of time. Turns out everyone else in Austin takes advantage of the free hour, but we still had fun:

Checking out the wind tunnel.

Taking after mama.

Hanging out with papa.

Building stuff.

Eighteen Month Check Up

This is going to be a pretty boring post because there's not much to say - he's completely healthy! Considering he had one continuous ear infection from November through February this is the best check-up we've had in a long time. His height is 32.5 inches (51st percentile) and his weight is 23 lbs 14.5 oz (21st percentile). He's tall and skinny and perfect.

Amery's favorite words right now are: Neena (Kona), mama, papa (usually said in a whisper, your guess is as good as ours), Dukel (for both cats, not just Feral Dukel), hi, bye, eat (using the sign for 'eat' and said more like eeeeeeeeeeeat), and of course, mine. He says other words, but these are his faves.

We hung out at the park with some friends today:

And that's all we got.

One thing you learn pretty quickly after moving to Texas is that it is tradition to take your kids, plop them down in a field of bluebonnets, and snap as many pictures as possible before they start eating them or throwing a major temper tantrum, whichever happens first. We were lucky to catch Amery on a good day and he seemed to rather enjoy the experience.

Easter Egg Hunt

We met up with a whole bunch of mamas and babies at the park today for an Easter egg hunt. It was Amery's first and I wasn't sure if he'd be into it. He was into it.

Hey, what's this thing?

Whoa, here's another one.

You mean I get to keep 'em? Sweet!

I think I can fit a few more in here.

Don't worry, I gave a few of these to the littler kids. They pretty much crawled around and drooled the whole time. Not like I ever did that.

He was pleasantly surprised to discover that there was stuff to eat inside the eggs.
