Eden and her Gran

So a few of you have mentioned we've been slacking off a bit on updating this page, to which I replied that I've gone whole hours without flashing my pics to friends and fam, so what's the big deal? To which you replied that no one really likes to look at my ugly mug anyway, which is a pretty fair point and makes our failure to update Eden's page something of a different situation. It's not that things haven't been going on, it's...actually, not much has been going on. After her Grandma Lair went back to Colorado, Eden has just been maxin' out relaxin', for the most part. And, to be honest, we've really been saving up new posts for special occurances, like having another grandma come visit, or maybe a first visit to the park, or, say, her first barbeque party. Hey, why don't we just do all three?

Eden's Gran-Gran (Sarah's and Molly's mom Janet, for those in BurLair-free language zones) rolled into town last Thursday, bringing love and new cute outfits for the grandgirl. We were curious to see how many differences in Eden Gran noted from her last time out here, which was two months ago. Gran's verdict: Eden looks a little too skinny. Just kidding! Besides the obvious things (like being almost twice as heavy, being able to hold her head up almost all the time, and being able to actually see things beyond her nose), Eden still has the same beautiful eyes, the same cute face, the same adorable little feet, and the same bewitching curdled-milk-covered tongue.

An Easter Piglet and her Grandma

So after a minor incident at the Lair household involving some leftover Easter grub, a large glass of milk, a vulnerable keyboard, a careless hand of an unnamed father, and a bad combination of them all, we're back with a new keyboard and more updates.

Specifically, Easter! Eden's first went remarkably well, except maybe for Eden. Her Grandma Lair was out for the weekend, the sun was shining, birds were singing, and Eden was fussing. We're not sure if she had a little bug going through her or if something momma ate earlier didn't digest so well in its milk form, but Eden was not a happy Easter bunny.

Everyone else was very happy, though, due to a mind-boggling amount of ham, mashed potatoes, and other yummy yummy edibles. It's a good thing ham does not have its own tryptophan equivilent, or I would still be sleeping while typing this.

The other big event of the weekend that was hinted at a second ago was the Grandma Lair visit. It was way too quick of a trip: she drove out from Denver on Thursday, arrived at our house on Friday, and flew back on Monday. Yes, there is a missing car and half of a round-trip ticket in there; after getting her own new wheels she sold us her old ride, for which we can't thank her enough. My former car (which, coincidentally enough, was a gift from Eden's other Grandma--our mommas really love us, apparently) was past its last legs and was down to its last knees, so the new car couldn't have come at a better time for us. And, of course, it gave grandma an excuse to come see her favorite grandaughter, so it worked out well for everyone. Just slightly better for us.

Our Easter finest. We haven't quite gotten
the whole Southern dress-up thing yet.

Eden loves her Grandma.

...and shows off her best lion impression.

You think a little upset stomach is going to slow
Eden down? Not our girl; she ate, as always, like
a champ. Here she's showing how cottage cheese is
made, baby style.

The Saddest Girl in the World

Today was the day everyone's been dreading--Eden went to the doctor to get her first vaccines. Man, did she not enjoy that. She's actually still crying, several hours later. Plus, the bandaids, like, totally clash with her outfit. Luckily, she gets to wait two months before she has to go through the process again. If mom and dad have not passed out from the crying long before then.

In other news, Eden is a chunk.

She weighed in at 13 lbs., 1.5 oz. this morning, with a height increase of .75 inches. That's a four pound gain in the last four weeks, folks. She not growing up as much as out right now, which only means that she's trying really hard to be just like daddy.

Happy Birthday Daddy! (1 week late)

First of all, sorry for the delay in posts, it's been a busy couple weeks. We celebrated Dad's 30th birthday last Monday and also had some family come to meet Eden. Eden was very excited to meet her 1st grandpa! Grandpa Lair and Cindy came out to meet Eden and help us celebrate Mike's 30th. Once again it made us wish that all of our family was closer!
