Coloring Easter Eggs

We colored eggs for family night. It was actually not too chaotic, I expected much more craziness. The kids each colored their own carton of eggs without much fuss. They loved it!

Lyla was thrilled when she spotted a basket left unattended on the floor. She was all over dumping it out to get to the eggs inside as quickly as possible before someone took it away!

This is Lyla this year in her Easter Basket. Not quite the same as the picture below from last year when she fit inside her basket. I can't believe she was ever really that small!

Lyla's growing up

Lyla's been making some good progress lately. I get so excited to see her catch on to new things! She was standing against the wall for a couple of minutes during therapy last week, she does her army crawl scoot thing to get where she wants to go but isn't thrilled about crawling on hands and knees yet, but she'll get there eventually!

We're trying clippies in her crazy hair now since she won't leave a headband on for one second anymore.

She's so proud of herself standing against the window! She sits for quite a while now really well but then she rolls her legs back behind her and goes on her tummy. It makes me cringe a little watching her, it looks like it should hurt but she's just a little gumby and it doesn't bother her in the least!

She's discovered she loves her sippie cup (and any of the others kids cups she can get her hands on) and loves food now! She hasn't spit out or made a face at anything we've fed her yet! It's a little hard since she just has one tooth but she does pretty well regardless.

She loves her big girl carseat she took over from Ava. We trade off with that and the infant seat still but she thinks she's so big sitting in it!
