19 months & Easter

Some funny things that happened this month. Bekah tried on all 3 of her new outfits at the same time. She had on 4 shirts, 2 pairs of shorts and a skirt. Billy tried on Daddy's sweatshirt and it swallowed him up. They tried Spaghetti for the first time. I think they played with it more than they ate it.

We were able to celebrate Easter with Brent, Deb and Grandma Heldt. Dad and I took the kids to Monkey Joe's (a play place for kids) and had a great time. All of us took the kids to the park to play with their new easter gifts (balls and bubbles). We all had a blast and learned new things. Rolling a big ball, kicking the ball and making bubbles were some of their favorite things to do.

We have been working on potty training the kids and Bekah is catching on very quickly. Billy thinks its fun, but not sure what the potty is for.

Both kids are cutting many teeth at the same time. I feel bad for them. We also discovered that they have seasonal allergies. We found out the hard way when the pollen "snowed" on NC. We have been able to treat it with over the counter medicine and they are doing very well.

18 months old

At the end of February the kids turned 18 months old and Bill had his shoulder surgery.
Bill's surgery went as well as could be expected. They didn't have any surprises once they started and it went like clockwork.

His surgery was on Thursday and on Saturday Dottie arrived. We were so thankful to share that time with her. She didn't have to share her great-grandchildren with anyone like she normally has to do when she visits (share the kids with Grandma and Grandpa Brand).... Well that was until we had a wonderful surprise visit from Bill and Jackie. They drove through the night just to be able to surprise us. We had a great long weekend and were able to celebrate Bill's birthday (March 9th) with everyone.

I learned not to leave Jackie, the kids and candy alone (just kidding). Jackie showed the kids how you can use egg candy and turn it into lipstick. It was really cute and the kids were all for it. Thank you Jackie for putting "lipstick" on my son. ;)
