Our Easter with a Toddler

So as he always does Jason wanted to prove me wrong. Right after I posted my last entry he decided it was high time he walked. It started with a couple of steps to Mommy, but now about half of the time he wants to get somewhere he is walking. He hasn't started running around yet, but we don't know how long we will be safe from that.

Just like his Daddy, Jason loves to be outside. Jeff's first word was outside and when I go out to grill something Jason complains that he has to stay in. Last week we had a few warm days and Jason and I just walked back and forth in the front yard. We are so happy to be having some nice weather lately and love going on walks to enjoy it. Sometimes Jeff even gets home early enough from work to go out with us.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Jeff and I decided at the last minute to take a trip to Niagara Falls since we never know how long we will be in any one place. We packed up and headed out on Thursday evening to arrive Friday morning. We spent Friday walking around the Falls and the surrounding town. Jason loved just watching the water and would have spent the entire day doing that if Mom and Dad would have let him. After a day we felt like we saw everything so we packed up and drove back into the USA. We went shopping in Buffalo, NY for a formal dress for our cruise. After searching all day I finally did find one that worked. Easter morning we went for a swim in the hotel pool since Jason loves playing in the pool. Then we went up to our room to find what the Easter bunny had left us and do an egg hunt. Jason actually did eventually figure out what we were telling him when we asked him to find the eggs. And he really loved the animal crackers hidden inside. Then we left for our long drive home.

In his Easter basket Jason had a stuffed bunny that he loves. In fact Jason is a fan of anything cuddly. He loves blankets, stuffed animals and doggies. We visited a friend with a dog and Jason fell in love. Now any time he sees a dog while we are walking or in a comercial he squeels. He also loves being read to. He will pick up a book and grunt at you until you come over and read it to him. We are so lucky to have such a sweet little boy!

  1. Yay for Jason walking :) I love how your blog shows Jason's growth. I have never seen this progression and its' really neat to see him grow in pictures. A slideshow one day of every month of his life (give or take the lots of months here and there) would be so neat!

    I look forward to reading more about your wonderful family!
