We began our Easter celebrations last weekend (April 16th) at Bill and Dee's (Michael's parents) house with all of this brothers and sister. We had a wonderful meal and Jonah got to showing out in his walker. We take the walker with us anytime we are going to be somewhere for more than an hour because he is so heavy now and he loves to get his energy out. He was good entertainment for everyone. Also there were 3 other little ones there too. It is very unique in that Jonah is Bill and Dee's youngest grandchild with about 9 years difference from Jonah to the next oldest (Lucas). Two of our nephews have children of their own that are closer to Jonah's age. It is kind of interesting to see the differenes in the way Michael and I choose to parent and the way the much younger nephews choose to.
On Easter weekend we got up and put on our Easter Sunday best and went to Church. We took Jonah to Sunday school (we have been taking him off and on for about a month or so) and he was such a good boy in class! He is the only one in the class right now so that is why we feel really comfortable leaving him. Also it doesn't hurt that his teacher has 3 kids of her own so I know he is in good hands.
We had planned to go to our Church's egg hunt that afternoon but it just wasn't in the cards. Jonah needed a nap badly and would not settle down over at Mom's with all the commotion. It wasn't until we were back home that he decided to take a nap and slept right through the time to go to the egg hunt. Oh well he will be raring to go next year though!
