Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone! We are spending our day lounging around... Stephen got sick to his stomach this morning, so we decided to take it easy today, as he seems a little under the weather. Fortunately, the Easter Bunny made his visit earlier in the week.

First, the Easter Bunny hid some plastic eggs at Stephen's preschool.
Miss Megan is Stephen's physical therapist, and she made sure he was doing a little "work" while having fun. Stephen was kind of annoyed about that, and lost interest in the egg hunt after his first 3 eggs...

On Friday, we went to the annual Egg Hunt at Daddy's school, and got to meet the Easter Bunny. Stephen kissed his hand...

We had to wait for a little bit before the hunt began, and Stephen kept busy with a shoulder ride.

Despite the fact that most of the kids in his age group (4 and up!) were much faster, Stephen managed to snag some eggs with his Dad's help.

That was it for our egg hunting adventures. On Saturday, Stephen spent some time reading. We know that he recognizes some words, for sure, because he has demonstrated the ability to do some simple spelling, but we aren't sure how many he knows exactly, because he's not always very cooperative with those activities (Stephen just isn't one to perform on demand...), but the way he was looking at his book leads us to believe that he was really reading some of the words. He was concentrating pretty hard on it!

After dinner last night, we decided to dye some hard-boiled eggs. This was our first attempt, and knowing Stephen as we do, we decided to stick with 2 colors, and make it really simple, because chances were pretty good that he would lose interest quickly... (and he did, after 4 eggs).

The picture below was my attempt to keep little hands out of the dye. He was very interested in what happened to the egg after he dropped it into the cup.

We'll definitely dye eggs again next year, and hopefully Stephen will find it more entertaining (I see his point, though...)!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter.
