(You may realize that I've found my camera and am playing a bit of catch up!)
A couple of weeks ago Alexander's good friend Kyle turned three and invited us to his birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. Thanks for having us, Kyle, and happy birthday! Alexander had a great time talking on the phone to Chuck and riding the train with Barney!
We also successfully hosted Easter dinner for my dad and Justin's parents. I don't consider myself a good cook, but I may have to start giving myself more credit! That is, unless my guests were lying to me! Even if they were, at least *I* enjoyed the meal! Ha! I made ham, German potato salad, fruit salad, deviled eggs, roasted carrots, sauteed zucchini, and a bunny cake.
Happy Easter to those who celebrate and a Happy Spring to everyone!

Today we went to our playgroup's Easter egg hunt. Man, those kids are fast! Alexander got about 10 eggs and has already eaten all the candy! Ack! I'm pretty sure the Easter Bunny will not be bringing any candy this year, as Alexander has already eaten enough in 2008 for the WHOLE of 2008! He seems to enjoy the new playgroup, though, especially the fact that most of the kids are a little bit older than him.
In other news, a new power supply for my computer arrived today, so if all goes well, I'll be back on my OWN machine by later tonight. I don't mind sharing with Justin except that my machine has all my bookmarks, settings, and address book, so I feel a little lost without them. If the new power supply doesn't work, hopefully Justin can retrieve those things from my hard drive.
Off to assemble a crib (that rarely gets used....)

Things are good, though! :)

In the morning, Alexander went to his first ever dentist appointment. He was perfectly cooperative and I was both amazed and proud. He was awesome! Granted, one would be hard-pressed NOT to cooperate in such a kid-friendly environment. They had video games and climbing stuff in the waiting room, a waterfall wall, and themed exam rooms. We were in the pirate room! Alexander was an incredible patient while they counted and cleaned his teeth. They said his teeth looked good and that we were doing a good job with brushing. Hooray! Thanks, Amanda, for the recommendation. :)
In the afternoon, we took Jack for his six month well visit. He now weighs 18.5 pounds (75th %) and is 28.5 inches long (97th %). Another tall boy! We checked off all the necessary developmental milestones, so he's doing great. He did have to get 5 vaccinations, though. Poor kid.
All in all, though, a good day. I am so proud and blessed to have two healthy little boys! :)

Anyway, here is what an ADORABLE six month old looks like:

Jack was just happy to be along for the ride.
