Easter Bunny

I finally got a good picture of Clara in this bunny hat with the help of Erica!

Erica is good at charming our babies!

Erica had the great idea to dye eggs.  The girls had a fantastic time putting them in the bowls and stirring them around.

After they dried, we hid them and the girls loved finding them.

Grace enjoyed it so much, she starting hiding the eggs after she found them so that we could do it all over again!

Swim Lessons

Grace just completed her first session of swim lessons!

Here she is, looking adorable in her swim suit from GG!

Avery did swim lessons with us also.  It was great having a good example in class!  Avery has no fear.  She had her arms outstretched every time the instructor was near, longing for her turn.  Grace on the other hand was a little reluctant sometimes.

Mom was always close by!  

I think she gained some confidence taking this class.  She loved her instructor Miss Allie, and she is much more confident in the water.  Grandma and Grandpa's swimming pool, here we come!  (well not right away but sometime not too long from now, hopefully!)`

I feel a bit guilty that I laughed at this, but I think the swim instructors brought this on themselves.  They got out this large raft for the swim class and floated everyone up and down, but it was over so quickly and Grace and Avery did NOT want to get out!  They eventually had to just grab Grace and pull her out against her will.

I thought I should include a video of her actually swimming also:

It's a start!  Next, we are trying Tumbling!

Grace's Orchestra

I found a poster in the green room for the symphony concert Grace saw last month and I put it in her room.  I think it reminds her of the experience!

10 Months Old!

Clara turned 10 months old two days ago!

You can really see that molar in this picture.  She is working on two more!

She learned how to crawl this month, and she is all over the place!  She gets into everything!

It was hard to take pictures of her this month because she keeps speed crawling to my camera lens and trying to grab it.

She is also more interactive and has figured out toys such as this car track.  She babbles all the time, and often I think she is copying something I said.  I could be imagining it being her proud mama, but I think she is trying to tell us things!

Of course, she is constantly getting in Grace's business.  Sometimes it drives Grace crazy but sometimes they play and laugh!
