"Hoppy" Easter

Happy Easter! We had another great weekend despite the cold weather and some sitings of snow flakes. Speaking of snow.....we're so glad we ventured to the U.P. when we did. 3 feet of snow fell over the past week. G'pa Greg was all ready to winterize the snowblower - I guess you just never know up der. Yesterday, Braden's buddy Sam came over to visit. It was so nice to see Sam and his parents. It was great to catch up with them and talk about the past, present, and future with our lil' guys. As you can see, Sam is such a cutie and tolerated Braden giving him wet willies and trying to chew or kiss him in the last photo. We're so glad him and his parents are doing so well and that they were able to visit us on Saturday. Today Braden had fun with the toys he found in his Easter Basket (loved to chew on the tags more than anything). Mom and dad had more fun with the bunny ears and snapping lots of photos (sure to embarass him years down the road). We had Easter brunch with the Steven's family over at Aunt Pam and Teddie's place. He was pretty tuckered when we got home.
As for other happenings with Braden. He has been a rolling maniac. We even saw him creep a teeny, tiny bit yesterday. We're just excited to see him rolling to his tummy and staying there for more than just 10 seconds. We've found that he's been rolling in his crib to sleep on his tummy - strange for a kid who just a week ago couldn't tolerate tummy time AT ALL. PT from birth to three came over on Wednesday. She discussed some goals she'd like Braden to achieve in the next 6 - 9 months. She wants to start coming over once a week to work on neck strength and stretching. She was impressed with his mobility and was happy to see his progress since she last saw him. Oh, and how can I forget? Another tooth just yesterday! That makes 4 on the bottom and still one big honkin' front tooth on top. He's also been jabbering more (with his mouth open) and blowing raspberries - dad loves it when Braden does this with a mouth full of food :-)
Easter blessings to everyone,
Steph, Rich, and Braden
