Tate survived his first morning at daycare. He didn't even miss me. I felt a little lost without him. He has basically been like an extra appendage for the last 2 years. He enjoyed getting out some baby things for Owen to use when he visits next month.  We made sugar cookies just for Brett and someone kept putting more frosting in his/her mouth than on the cookies. Can you guess who that was?

Knee Pads

Tate got into the feminine hygiene product drawer. Brett showed him how to make knee pads. Boy did Tate think that was great. He also likes to tickle himself with his toothbrush. He was a wild man at story hour. Oh, and he decided to play with the iPad in the bathtub and eat a slice of bread for a snack. Silly boy!!

Me:  Do you want mommy to kiss daddy?
Tate:  Mommy kiss Tate

He was a singing machine this evening. "Ride, ride, ride on the dinosaur train."  
"Twinkle little star...random sounds...are"

Easter wore him out. He slept until 5:30 then went back to sleep until 7:45. He napped from 1-4:20.

Today was fun. Brett's parents came to my parents' house. Tate enjoyed all of his Easter goodies!

Tate got a surprise Easter basket from my aunt this morning. He had chocolate bunnies for breakfast. He is turning into a crabby, teething beast.

Story Hour

Story Hour was exciting today!  We dyed eggs with shaving cream and food coloring. Then the Easter Bunny made a brief appearance. Tate liked him but did not want to stand with the rest of the kids  for the picture. We finished with an egg hunt!!  We left with the best treats, a balloon and a sucker!  Tate ate the sucker one lick at a time.

We did some Easter prep today. Easter is by far my favorite holiday!

We also visited Tate's daycare provider. He will be staying with her about 6 hours a week. There are 3 other kids there his age so I am hoping it helps him pick up on social cues.  I am feeling very anxious about being away from him so much.  He has pretty much been with me all day, everyday for the last 2 years aside from leaving him occasionally for an appointment or a haircut.
