Russian Orthodox Easter

Adria and I celebrated Russian Orthodox Easter today. This time I created the Easter egg hunt for Adria. She was able to find all 12 of the hidden eggs pretty quickly. The most difficult to find egg was taped to the underside of a drawer in our chest of drawers. Unfortunately I didn't use enough tape, and it had fallen into a lower drawer by the time that Adria started looking for the eggs. I think that if the egg hadn't fallen down, Adria would never have found it without resorting to playing "Hot/Cold"

Thomas Likes To Stand Up

Thomas has begun to try to stand. He likes to play with the vacuum cleaner.

He just figured out that he can stand up in his crib too.

Monster Wash

After accumulating a winter's worth of dirt, we decided to get Adria's car washed this weekend. The fact that it was only 28 degrees outside didn't deter us, nor did it deter the 15 or so other cars at Monster Wash who were also getting their cars washed as well.

Monster Wash also had something that I had never seen at a carwash before...a laser light show. They have 4(!) different laser light shows. We went with the "Decades of Rock" show. It was quite interesting to have lasers and strobe lights flashing from the comfort of your car while it is being washed. Thomas looked like he didn't know what to think while this was going on.

Mobile Thomas

Thomas is getting more mobile. He likes to crawl across the room to wherever Adria happens to be.

Adria says that what Thomas is doing here is a yoga position called the Downward Dog:

Open Sesame

While I was on my most recent business trip, Adria taught Thomas a new trick. This is now one of Thomas' favorite things to do.

The interesting thing is that despite liking to look into the cupboard, Thomas hasn't tried to touch the contents of the cupboard as of yet.

Update (4/14/2008): Well that didn't last particularly long. Thomas figured out that he could take things out of the cupboard over the weekend.
