They are building a new mall by my house and there are a few stores, restaurants and a movie theater that are already open. They also frequently hold little events in the common area and I find out about them on facebook. This particular day they had a petting zoo type set up that we thought Ellie would enjoy. She did of course. She loves animals and walked around to the different areas like a big girl.
Last year, when Ellie was 3 months old, we went to my friend Amy's mom's house for an Easter Egg hunt. We wanted to do it again this year too. I dressed Ellie for the occasion, in her Bunny shirt. Then....just as we pulled up to the house I hear a noise, look back, and Ellie was throwing up all over herself. She had been sleeping too so it woke her up. It was so sad. I'm not sure what upset her stomach but thankfully we were at the house so I ran in and got paper towels and a plastic bag. James took apart the car seat and got to do the fun part. I took Ellie in and got her cleaned up. I always have an emergency outfit in the diaper bag. It's been in there a long time. Size 6 months and still fits haha.
Anyways...she didn't quite get the concept of the egg hunt. She'd say "ball" and then pick it up and try to open it. It was cute. She also got to eat a few pieces. I figured she already threw up so what was the harm....but she was fine the rest of the day so maybe it was just a fluke.
Next, I wanted to take some spring pictures of Ellie in her Easter dress so we went out one evening and took a few. She's getting so big. We are loving this age. She is learning so much and is starting to say more and more words. Second picture down she's waving and saying hi.
We had dinner at our friends house with another couple (we are each other's family on the holidays). There was also an Easter egg hunt for the kids.
