Leah's parents are young and social and a lot of fun to hang out with, and the best part is that after an evening of letting the kids play, we only have a few steps to walk back to our house. It's perfect, and as the weather warms we're meeting new people all the time. There are a few things that a house can offer that a townhome cannot, but we've lived in both and we've honestly never been happier. There will be a time to move on to a "real" house, but not yet. We're quite enjoying this grown-up version of dorm living. You know, minus the communal bathrooms and plus a couple heart-breakingly cute babies.

And here's another one of him trying to figure out how to jump:
It's still ridiculous how many pictures and videos I take on a daily basis. Sometimes I load them into the computer and I can't even remember taking them all. (Of course, that's also because Topher often finds the camera and takes quite a few himself.) But I have a feeling that I will be taking even more as Topher continues to do things that I want to capture forever. Which is pretty much everything.

What a busy Easter. Topher awoke to a basket by his bed containing new sippie cups, 2 pairs of Robeez (brand of shoes) we found at a consignment shop, and a funny light-up ball.Happy Easter, Topher! You can have the basket if you can get it away from the demon cat. Then it was downstairs to go on his first Easter egg hunt. I was afraid he would not understand the concept, but he caught on immediately.
Once he found all the eggs, we had to show them that they open. Instead of candy, we filled them with oyster crackers, one of his favorite snacks.
Then it was over to Grandma and Grandpa's for an Easter lunch, followed by another Easter egg hunt outdoors. This one really wore him out, and after finding a LOT of the eggs, he just wanted to go back inside.I'm a pro at this egg-finding business. So many eggs, such short legs. Put them in the basket, Topher. The stash he collected before throwing in the towel. Uh oh, somebody ate a black jellybean. Finally, it was over to Aimee & Dale's house for one more Easter meal and yes, one more egg hunt. It was a great, long day but obviously the best part of the day was reflecting on the true meaning of Easter. I'm so thankful for my knowledge of, and belief in, my Savior. Topher knows exactly who Jesus is and can always find him in pictures. And every time he points to Him, he says, "Dad." I love it.
