Locopops! I will explain later.
We had a nice relaxing weekend of family time and just being lazy(especially baby D, he took a 3 hour nap today and I had to wake him up!). Baby D turned 5 months on Saturday! Such a big boy. I'm not going to do a milestone post this month since I feel like I just did one so I will save up for a big 6 month post. He is changing every day and I love having the blog to save these memories before I forget them! Just a couple key things...his "talking" has exploded over the past couple weeks and he can sit up propped with his arms for about 10 seconds!
Evan had a lacrosse game on Friday night so my mom, Dillon and I went out for dinner at Elmo's. This was her first Elmo's experience and she enjoyed it! We took a stroll down 9th st(good thing the toy store was closed, haha) and went over to Ben and Jerry's for ice cream. We made cottage cheese pancakes(yum!) for breakfast the next day and did some sewing. I made a bunch of burp cloths and bibs and finished some up to sell to a couple people. I will post pics later.
We also went to my new favorite place...Locopops!!!! We always drive by it on the way to the 9th st area and just now went for the first time. They are "hand-crafted, locally-made gourmet frozen pops." Since we were hot from taking a long walk, it was a perfect treat. Evan had cookies and cream(a milk based popsicle, pretty much like ice cream) and I had a pomegranate tangerine. Dillon was so jealous, looking at us with those puppy dog eyes and opening his mouth. He grabbed for mine a couple times so I let him have a taste since they are all natural. He LOVED it! The coldness didn't seem to phase him since he pretty much had the entire top in his mouth sucking on it. I told him he had to wait until he was a little older to have his own. :) I have a feeling we will be frequenting Locopops a lot this summer!
I hope you all had a great weekend!

What a gorgeous weekend to be outside! We were pretty much out and about all weekend and today we(and about all of Durham) ventured over to Duke Gardens to see the flowers in bloom and visit with Evan's Aunt who was visiting from out of town.
Tulips are my favorite flower.....
Our families came over after church for Easter dinner at the big round table. We had a yummy feast , including Honey Baked Ham and fresh steaks from a farm near my mom and dad's house. And of course, a photo shoot of the babies outside. It was such a beautiful weekend! It hasn't been this hot Easter weekend....ever! I heard on the news it has never been this warm the first week of April after 1940. Crazy! I accidentally deleted all the photos from the day so I took D outside to torture him some more in the basket, haha. We didn't do a family shot over again, I was a mess by the end of the day, ha!
Fingers in the mouth in almost every picture
The Easter Bunny brought me an exersaucer!
Cousins playing outside...whats this green stuff?!

Happy 4 Months, Mr Baby(a little late, haha)! You are growing so fast, we just can't keep up! We also had to wait until your Dr appt to see how much you have grown. Well, you sure grew like a weed! You are.....
14 1/2 pounds and 27 inches long! That is 95th for height!! Daddy is hoping you will be a beast on the lacrosse field. You are in size 2 diapers and wear 6-9 month clothes.
still sleeping well at night, 10-11 hours and sometimes you skip your evening nap.
laughing up a storm, especially at funny noises mommy and daddy make. You make funny noises to get us to laugh as well. You love to cuddle, sing with mommy, dance with daddy and have such a laid back personality. We hope you stay that way!
eating some solids like rice cereal and applesauce, you love apples!
trying to sit up when you are in your swing so we bought you an excersaucer. You love to play upright so you can see your environment. You notice the doggie and laugh when he licks your face. You love to play with your toys and chew on EVERYTHING!! You might be teething or just love to chew. You like to play with your feet and bring them to your mouth.
getting over some eczema/dry skin from diapers and wipes your skin did not like! It looks much better now. Looks like you have mommy's sensitive skin.
growling,"yelling" and spitting is so much fun to you, especially in the morning and evening.
Mommy and Daddy love you, sweet baby D!
