Today is Easter Sunday. I should be getting ready to go meet my mom and sister for lunch but I am kind of dreading it in a way! This is our first Easter without my dad. Holidays just haven't been the same since October. My mom was going to make dinner at her house but we all decided it would be easier just to go out for lunch, just like we did on thanksgiving. It's just easier that way until my mom moves out of her old house. I know that we would sit and stare at my dad's seat at the dinner table, just like we did on christmas. The only thing that keeps all of us going is having Alex here. He wasn't around last year for the holidays and having him here makes all of us so happy. He is such a happy baby and you can just tell that he loves life. Watching him discover new things every day is so much fun! I put him in the grass yesterday for the first time and it was so hilarious watching him touch the grass! He would reach down and touch it and then take his hand away really fast and just stare at it. When I picked him up to put him in the car he started yelling. He wanted to stay in the grass!! I will take him back outside soon, it's just been way too cold to stay outside for a long period of time, I'm getting so tired of this cold weather!
Yesterday Dani, Lindsey and her daughter, Tadum came over. Dani brought big easter baskets and stuffed animals for Alex and Tadum. It was so adorable seeing Tadum and Alex meet eachother for the first time! Tadum is 15 months so she and Alex are really close in age. They pretty much bonded right away. Alex was really shy at first and wouldn't leave Dani's lap, but then they slowly walked up to eachother and started playing with eachothers stuffed animals. They were sharing bottles and Tadum even started feeding Alex cheerios! I discovered something new about Alex too! They started playing with his walk along and soon Alex grabbed it and took off with it! Whenever he came back over to Tadum she would try to grab onto it too, and Alex would turn to her and start yelling and shaking his finger at her like he was scolding her!! I don't know where he learned that! I never shake my finger at him!! lol. I discovered my son can be a little bossy! :)
John went clothes shopping and bought Alex a couple new Ecko outfits yesterday, they are SO adorable!! :) He has bought Alex so many nice outfits. He buys him so many expensive, brand name clothes, it's insane! I don't even know how many Ecko and Hurley outfits Alex has now! lol. John loves getting Alex ready to go in the morning, he loves dressing him in outfits so they match! It just makes me sooo happy that John cares about him so much, and takes care of him. You can just see how much they love eachother when they're together. Whenever John walks in the house, Alex runs to him with his arms open and a big grin. A few weeks ago John's cousin Leanne and her boyfriend came over to babysit on a saturday night. When John and I were leaving Alex started crying, and he ran right over to John and grabbed onto him. He didn't want us to leave! That just made me SO happy because my son loves my boyfriend so much!! :)
Yesterday night I went out to the Rainbow and the Carlin with John, Dani, Jason, John Adams, Lindsey, Mitch, Nikki and Matt. It was soooo fun! The only downside is John Adams drank too much and passed out, lol. Cameron had to take him home right after we got to the Carlin! We all had a lot of fun though, it's very rare that all of us get together anymore. We took lots of pictures, so I'm excited about that! More to scrapbook! :) I took pictures of Alex and Tadum and John earlier yesterday too. I will post them tonight after I download them.
Now I'm off to get ready for lunch. Then when I get home I'm going to work on my felt animals for the Red Velvet Art blog! They are so much fun to make and I have so many cute ideas!! Alex is going to love them! lol. I am determined to make this a great day! :)
