Easter fun

Yesterday it was rainy so we stayed inside and made Easter cupcakes. Cy calls them "Cups" Baby and Puppy were at the table to help.

We waited til Patrick came home to frost them.

Cy loved the activity, especially eating them.......

That is, until it was time to clean up!!

This was on a lovely 70 degree day. He insisted on wearing his hat and fleece (with a long-sleeved shirt underneath) all day!
Today we rode our bikes with Cy in our bike trailer -- the same trailer we used for skiing this winter. It was terrific! He loved it. We took him to a neighborhood Easter party with live bunnies, an egg hunt, balloons, face painting, etc. Our friend Katie met us there.

Jens, Cy will not stop wearing this hat you knit! Obsessed!

So we have a full fledged toddler on our hands. Mr Personality... happy happy happy sad sad sad... Most of the time the meltdowns go hand in hand with hunger or fatigue. Oh, and he is soooo bossy! No mama can't come upstairs with him and dada. No Woof can't sit under the table when he eats. He wants to go outside, but not in the stroller. He only wants to be in the stroller. And he has to have sunglasses on. Twice this week on 70 degree days he demanded wearing his fleece and knit hat inside ALL day.

Also along with the toddler stage comes a huge amount of fun! He loves to do so many more activities. He always begs to be outside (YAY!!!) We've been at the park almost every day this week. And, lots and lots of laughs. I laughed so hard I cried the other night when Cy made a big poo (almost grown up sized) while he was in the tub with Dada!! Wow. To think a week or two ago we were contemplating potty training! All I can say is bleach. Lots and lots of bleach.
