Evelyn, much like Punxsutawney Phil, saw her shadow.
And then she waved hi to it.
Must be spring! And we have the sidewalk chalk weather to show for it.
The trees are blooming, the grass is green, little knees are skinned from crawling on sidewalk, and more chalk is on tiny hands, feet, and lips than on the surface it belongs. All is good.
Once again, it takes a photo to remind me that it's time to trim the nails again.
The long wait is over. And while I'm sure we'll have our share of fowl weather days, the worst is over.
And in celebration of good weather and happy seasons, we had our very first real play date. You know... the kind where the kids actually play rather than the moms just getting together for an excuse to get out of the house for coffee or lunch while rocking infants sleeping snugly in car seats.
Meet little Lexi.
Lexi was born about a month and a half before Evelyn. Her momma and I went to elementary school together, and kept each other sane during our pregnancies via facebook. Every once in awhile since the babies were born we've gotten together to catch up and swap mommy stories.
This time, however, was different. There was sippy cup swapping, toy stealing, and hair pulling.
There was staring at each other and crawling baby trains as one would follow the other. Making friends. This was good too. We're looking forward to more of these.
And Spring... yea it's totally here.
Don't let the frown fool ya, we're so happy you made it.
