Where did April go?

Elisabeth has done quite a lot of growing this month. She turned 4 months old this week. She weighed in at a whopping 15 pounds and she's grown 2 inches since her last visit 7 weeks! 26 inches tall already. She flipped from belly to back at the start of the month, and this week turned from back to belly, very intentionally. She's not repeated either feat, but I think she's just resting on her laurels for now, getting ready to surprise me and start walking at 6months or something like that! She's such a happy baby, and I'm glad I finally caught a picture of her laughing. Here I am with the clan at Easter. Robbie, in the middle, decreed that we all needed to dress we're all in blue and white, with the boys having a green stripe on their vests, Lissa having to wear pink pants coz that's the only color of pants I have for her, and everyone bundling up as best they could because it was 28 degrees Easter morning...One might expect that if Easter was in early March, but this was on April 8th! Spring is such a strange season in New England!

so, in order is: Kirsty holding Lissa, KC who is getting ready to blow one of those tooting things that we had leftover from someone's birthday party, Robbie, and Chet, who was very proud of his new Panama hat, but that he had to wear sideways because of this honking big earring he was wearing in his cartilige hole...and to be uniquely Chet!
tomorrow it will be in the 70's for the first time since...September or October. It will be so refreshing! Laundry on the clothes line! Diapers dried in the sun and not via Massachusetts Electric!! Hurray for warm weather at last at last!
