I stripped the babies down to diapers and we painted on the sidewalk! Too fun!
A few days later, I put Liam in his first paint bath. I always did this with kids that I nannyed for. You add a few inches of water to the bath, give the kid a plate with tempera paint on it, and let them have fun. Liam wasn't shy with the paint. :) When you are done, you both rinse the walls and kid, and then have a clean bath. Super FUN!
We wash hair! Liam likes to see the bubbles on his hands after trying to wash his own hair.
He also likes to see the "baby" in the reflecting water spout.
Last Thursday we met some friends at the Dream Park in Monona. Liam loves playing outside so much and will knock on the door or go and sit himself in the stroller or bike trailer until we leave. When I ask him if he wants to go to the park, he'll make requests for which ones he wants to go to. "Duck wawa" means Yahara and "Tree tree" means Orton. There are others, but these are the ones that stick in his head.
This is Charley and his Mom, Sarah. Liam loves Charley very much and talks about him during the week. Dear "Lawrley" is a very special boy. :)
I'm super behind. These are from a few weeks ago, when we walked to Olbrich Gardens together.
In case you were wondering, this is what a tantrum at the gardens look like.
Later that day, Liam and I went to our family potluck that we are in. We all met at a park and had too much fun chasing the ducks (duck-ducks), going down the slide (lide), and PUSH!!!ing on the swing (wing).
And a little video - sorry, in the beginning I forgot that I can't take vertical video...
I hid Liam's first Easter basket on the living room table. He found it first thing in the morning and promptly ate all of the gummi bears out of their eggs. I don't blame him, gummi bears are good for breakfast.
We went to church at St. Bernard's and came home so we could start a new family Easter tradition: riding bikes and running fast away from Mommy.
