You were such a sweet baby. You never cried. You never slept, either, but your awesomeness made up for it.

We've recently landed in East Lansing, Michigan.
|I added black-out fabric to these, which helps with|
south-facing windows in a toddler's room. The crib
is mostly just decoration at this point, and it'll be moved soon.
|For the baby's nursery. I plan to put my children in one room|
as soon as the little one is sleeping through the night and not needing
a diaper change in the wee hours.
|They look awesome, but for some reason this is the only picture|
I got. My seedlings are doing so-so.
|"Up and down and up and down and up and down..."|
|Figuring it out with me. I am terrible at sewing.|

|Finley ready for his ride; new 'Spidy' shades,|
courtesy his Easter gift from Grandma.
|I dyed eggs with natural dye with a few friends, but they didn't|
turn out quite as I expected, and I also wanted Finley to do some egg
dipping this year, so we went the traditional route with food coloring.
|Eggs in jars. He liked egg dyeing and was pretty gentle with |
the eggs. (He only broke two. Wait. Three. No...maybe it was four.)
|Okay, this one's not technically from Easter, but it's so Springtime-y|
with the asparagus. Finley loves to help wash veggies for me.
|The bump at 20 weeks. Same size as last time at this point.|
|Cherry 'maters, heirloom 'maters, kale, onions, jalapenos, |
red bell peppers, and...forgetting the rest right now.
|Getting excited for summer!|
|Letting Finley play with the camera was the only |
way to keep him out of the wet paint.
|Finley now "smiles" for the camera when I take his picture. |
Austin's doing a great impersonation.
|I bought a metal-frame baby backpack on craigslist for $20! |
We've taken one nice winter hike so far. I hope we're able
to go a few times a month. Finley loves it for about
an hour, then he wants to get down and run around.
|Prepping the walls for some tile love.|
|Ready to go.|

Delicious! Despite the illusion of the pic, this puppy was HUGE.
It served 10 people and did double duty as breakfast for us for a couple of days.
(Is there anything better than cake for breakfast? I think not.)
|Really going after it.|
