The month of April served to be a very good month for our family. We started out the month with a birthday party for Claire, Easter celebration, and Pete joining the Catholic Church. Other events for this month included our first family movie night, taking both girls to the park and Grace riding in the swings for the first time! Grace has started spoon feeding twice a day. Claire's vocabulary is increasing by the day. She does well with colors, asking for help, listening to what we say, and asking for what she wants. She has a habit of raiding the fridge and the pantry and bringing whatever she wants to Pete and I and saying "Help, please!" She is hysterical to watch! Grace is as happy and laid back as always. Her face lights up when she hears Claire's voice and she instantly smiles when Claire says "Hi Baby Grace!" Another one of Claire's new things is when she falls down and "gets hurt" she says "Mommy, you OK Claire?" and waits for me to ask if she's OK before she gets up! Claire's new favorite things are dinosaurs and Toy Story. Grace has started rolling all around but still hates tummy time. She tucks her knees up but no signs of crawling yet. Here are some pictures from our month...

We bought Claire a potty chair and she has gone in the potty twice - but we aren't pushing it too much! When she finishes, she gives Elmo a high-five and he tells her "Good job!"
