Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! (The day after) :) Hope everyone had an enjoyable time. Ours was busy, but successful. Except for the fact that Jaden came down with a cold that I had last week. But he's such a trooper... watery eyes, stuffy nose, sneezes and fatigue... he still manages to smile, laugh and make us smile and laugh in return! He enjoyed his Easter and being spoiled by his grandparents and Mommy and Daddy. His new gifts included an Easter book and new Boz DVD from myself and Cody. (If you have small children and haven't seen the Boz series -- you should invest in them. Great fun Christian DVDs that are very colorful and lovable)! Grandma and Grandpa J got him a fuzzy bunny that sings and dances! And the Ubben grandparents got him a lawn mower that blows bubbles. Now if he would just start walking...! Little stinker takes steps on his own only when he feels like it. So stubborn. I don't know where he got that from????! Jaden also has a new "summer" haircut! We decided yesterday to give him a buzz cut like his daddy. He looks so much older!! It is weird to see without his out of control hair that used to always stick up no matter what... but he still looks adorable. When I dropped him off at daycare this morning, his sitter went ga-ga over him!

Other updates.. he has entered a phase of "protesting" nap time or bed time. It's really not that bad though. Lately when we put him in his crib, he tends to throw out all his blankets and pacifier so that we have to go back in there and put everything back in his crib before he goes to sleep. But I will gladly take that over him crying non-stop. He's pretty easy to handle when he's tired :)

Cody and I have decided that since we have slowed down our hunt to buy a house that we are going to try to find a three bedroom rental house. I didn't think I wanted to rent again, but there are plus sides to renting so now we have our fingers crossed that we will be able to find something that way.
