Bunny, birthday, Grandpa, eggs
Dear Maya and Emi,
It's been a roller coaster of a week! At the moment mommy is on the floor next to your bed, Maya, trying to type quietly so you can get some rest. Since yesterday you've had a fever that spikes and drops and a croupy, awful cough. Hopefully you're better for Easter!
Last Saturday, mommy must have sensed that we might not get a proper Easter because I dressed you both in your fancy outfits to go see the Easter bunny. Emi, you didn't bat an eyelash when mommy sat you on his lap, but Maya, you were a little nervous at first. Daddy had to take over the camera duties so I could walk you up there and stand close by. Afterwards we went to visit your great-grandparents and you both got sweet Easter gifts from them.
Then, last Sunday was your buddy Wyatt's birthday party, Maya. You were a little heartbroken at first that he ran away after you (lovingly) tackled him, but you still had a fun time. You loved the cake and the laser light show. Emi, you got to play with friends your own age, too--twins, in fact!
This week Grandpa came to visit us for a few days. You both spent lots of time playing with him, especially "Grandpa slide." Emi, you waved 'bye-bye' for the first time to him. One day we went grocery shopping together so he got to see you in true form--crazy! While Grandpa was here we also colored our Easter eggs. Maya, you dyed at least half of them yourself but luckily there were some left when Uncle Matt pulled out his air brush to give it a try!
Well, I'd better get some sleep in case we have another rough night. Love you both!
