Remembering 6 Years Ago

April 29, 2003 was one of the best days of our lives.  For those that weren’t there, or just can’t remember it, here’s a little re-cap…

(Just so you’re aware, this is a pretty long video and a pretty large download.  Consider yourself warned.)

Easter

Easter was a lot of fun this year.  This was Tateym’s first Easter ever, and our first Easter where the Easter Bunny had a legitimate reason to visit our house. 🙂  Saturday was the annual family Easter egg hunt.  It amazes me how quickly all our little nephews and nieces are growing up–we had nearly as many hiders as hunters this year.  The weather was much cooler than we had hoped it might be but that didn’t slow down any of the kids in the hunt (“get candy, get candy, get candy”).  We had a great time visiting with family and friends, and eating way too much good food.

A few pictures from the Easter egg hunt and Easter morning:

Is that the Easter Bunny?

Crawling … Sort Of

Tateym is getting really close to a full-fledged crawl.  She’ll get up on her hands and knees, but hasn’t quite figured out what to do from there.  She’s gotten very good at her own variation of a military crawl though, scooting herself along on her tummy.  It’s very cute, although she gets into everything now!  We wanted to capture her scooting on video so we figured what better way to lure her than to put something in front of her that she shouldn’t have, like a video camera …

Random Videos of Tateym

So in an effort to make up for our complete lack of blogging in February, I’m posting some of the stuff we should have posted.  Here are a few videos of Tateym that we thought were too cute not to share.

Eating Sweet Potatoes:

This was her first experience with solid foods other than rice cereal.

Being Silly:

This was right after she woke up from her nap.  I was about to change her diaper when she suddenly started doing this.  It was so funny, I ran and grabbed the camera then coaxed her into doing it again.

Almost Sitting Up:

For the record, she didn’t hurt herself in the face plant at the end of the video. 😉  Also, I should mention that she sits up like a champ now.
