Happy Easter and Seven Months Old

Today the girls got to celebrate both their first Easter and the day they turn seven months old. We can't believe how many things they can do now and how big they are- they are becoming such individuals right before our eyes.

The girls woke up to see that the Easter Bunny had come to visit them. Since they are so little, he brought them only carrots in their baskets. Each girl took a good study of the baskets, then waited until Christina cooked up the carrots for them to try before they got interested again.



Eating carrots with Mom:




We went to church for Easter mass and Elena and Clara were both beautifully behaved (if you can overlook Clara pulling the hair of a sweet boy in front of her). Then after a nice nap, they took a walk with Nana Rose who is out visiting, while Christina and Steve got Easter dinner ready. The girls ate mashed potatoes with us at the table, and held their own throughout the meal. They are just getting so interactive and grown up that it's hard to take in except in brief moments like dinner tonight.



Unfortunately, we didn't quite get the warm weather we wished we would, and the girls had to go out bundled in snowsuits today - but it was fun to see them roly-poly and all wrapped up one more time before spring really hits.



We are just so glad Nana Rose came out to celebrate Easter and help with the girls - it's always a wonderful time to have more family around.
