April was a busy month with lots of visitors! We celebrated my sister's and my birthday, along with an early Easter, at my mom's house at the beginning of the month. The weather wasn't too great, so my mom had an indoor egg hunt for Luna and Henry (well, mostly Luna!). My in-laws were over a couple times, and Tom's sister from Illinois drove in for the holiday weekend and to meet Henry for the first time. She stayed with us, which was really nice. She got to spend a ton of time snuggling with Henry and we got to catch up a lot. Henry enjoyed his first Easter with lots of new books and stuffed animals. I went to a birthday party for one set of nieces and nephews and got to meet our newest nephew (the one born right before Henry) for the first time (between COVID, other sicknesses, and everyone going back to work, it was hard to meet up!). Henry is now five months old and getting so big and strong! He loves to kick and is *thisclose* to rolling over on his own. He also had his first solid food this month! The first time we gave him sweet potato puree was... not good. He was not having it and had a look on his face that said, "Why are you doing this to me?" But it got better as the week went on and he's starting to figure it out and even enjoy it a little.

I'm glad you got to see your family! The first time Baby Brooklyn rolled over, my sister and I screamed so loud that we scared her. I never thought she'd roll over again. :) Have a great May!ReplyDelete

Glad Henry had a good first Easter and that you had a nice month! To be fair to Henry, I did not used to be a fan of sweet potato either lol.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Kit! Haha, I'm still not a huge fan of sweet potatoes. He is really enjoying the butternut squash, though!Delete
