Easter Fun!!

The Easter Bunny was very good to Mason!! Maybe a little too good!! He not only brought goodies to Mason at home, but also at Grandma's house and Uncle David and Aunt Lynette's!!!

Mason also got to participate in not one, but TWO egg hunts!! Saturday morning Mason and Daddy went and did the egg hunt here in our little town. Mason found his egg and traded it in for some candy and three alligators!! They were a little late, so instead of going with his own age group Mason went with the girls group of six to nine year olds... which is just fine with our little ladies man! Mason also did an egg hunt here at home!! He loved finding, and then re-hiding the eggs!! He really didn't even care that they were filled with m&m's!!

Here are some pics that Uncle Dave snapped after Easter lunch!! This was Mason's first time swinging as a big boy all by himself!!! (Well, that's Daddy in the back ground making sure he doesn't fall off!)

Grow Bebo g-r-o-w!!!

With all of the complications that I have this go around, we had seriously prepared ourselves to have a tiny peanut girl. (especially compared to Mason! 9lbs2.5oz @birth!) So to make sure that Bebo was in fact growing and thriving Dr. Peltier had ordered monthly growth ultrasounds. She then assess them to make sure that Bebo is still better off in utero than out.

Miss Bebo does NOT appreciate having the u/s done. Not at all. Never has. We have one nice pic of her from u/s... one! That's it! This time around I didn't even get one pic to take home because, well she just wouldn't cooperate!

The good news is she is growing... like a weed!!

4/3 (35w0d) she weighed in at 7lbs6oz(95%)!!! WOW!!! and she has over four weeks left to continue to grow! We may easily be looking at a 9 pounder again!! Her head was measuring @almost 40w and her femurs @39w. She will be a long legged (and big headed!) baby!

Our last u/s was done @30w3d... she was 3lbs11oz (65%) in only 4w4d she gained 3lbs11oz!!! Yup... she DOUBLED her body weight!!

Dr. Peltier was quite happy to see our little bug thriving despite all we have been through!! I have one last appointment with the Maternity Counselor to go over our final birth plan and to check for GBS (Group Beta Strep) and then one last u/s and appointment with Dr. P and we are DONE!! WOW!! Time went MUCH faster this time than last!

Radio Flyer

Mason is becoming such a big boy!!!

So big in fact that he got his first bike on Saturday!!! Unfortunately it was a cold, windy and pretty much miserable day here in Wisconsin. I even made him wear his hat with the ear flappers. (let me tell you how much Mason appreciated that one!) We probably only stayed out and played for 15 minutes but it was enough time for him to get to try out his new bike, and have his fingers turn to icicles (no, he won't wear mittens!) Here is hoping for the weather to warm up in the great frozen tundra!!!

Learning where to put your feet with Daddy.

Figuring out the concept of steering!

Steering and pedaling at the same time is HARD!!

Going for a spin around the driveway with Daddy.

I think I like this...

Okay...starting to have fun!!!
LOVES his new bike!!!
