Despite the fact that Easter was a tad bit early this year, and thus a bit chilly, we spent a wonderful, sunny day at Mommy's Aunt and Uncle's house in Fredericksburg. Mom, Dad and Aunt Tiffy hid over a 100 Easter eggs and then the hunt began! We designated a small person zone so the big kids wouldn't trample the little ones during the hunt. Then the candy eating began! Cole was so hyped up on sugar, he babbled the entire car ride home (normally he would have slept). Cole loved the treats that the Easter Bunny brought. A big plastic bucket for our future summer beach excursions, an Elmo stuffed animal, a Sesame Street video (he soooo loves these right now!) and lots of yummy candy. This year the Easter bunny even brought Mommy a basket :)

Cole has turned into one talkative little guy these days. I specifically noticed this past weekend when I rendezvoused with some girlfriends (yes sans baby and hubby) in Texas and called home to say hi. I was speaking to Craig and there was all this raucous in the background. I figured he had visitors. As it turns out, it was our Jibber jabbering toddler! Wow! Dazed with the normal business of everyday, I can say that there are a lot of things that go unnoticed and just how much he is now speaking was one of the things that had escaped me. It’s so amazing to hear him actually speak words (now granted he probably knows and says about 10 x as many as I can give him credit for). I hear that some time soon I will be sorry for “wishing” for more words, but for now I’m simply amazed.
