spring has (finally!) sprung!

last weekend was the beginning of passover, and i had the day off for good friday, so we FINALLY got to take milo to a playground!  here is our little sailor enjoying the swings:
 and standing!  outside!  wearing shoes!

 when he got one of these to rotate, he did a total double take, then smiled his giant gummy grin at me.  so magical:

 guess who he's looking at/sneaking up on here.  there's only one person who inspires that kind of devotion in milo.  and it's not me.
 did you guess yet?  he's trying to be super sneaky here, but she saw him coming.
 penny.  it's penny.  he just plain adores her.

milo is watching penny eat frozen yogurt here, and is making all the right mouth movements to be sure he's prepared when it's his turn.
 then it was seder time!  we started off the evening with a small concert:
 and milo got his first taste of matzoh.  it turns out you can do some serious damage with only one tooth.

for the second night of passover, we went to a seder at graunt carol and gruncle charles'.  milo ate even more matzoh, and a ton of brisket and salmon!  penny also had salmon, and decided that she likes it because it "tastes like meat."

spring break started, and penny spent the week with grandparents, and today we got her back!  milo missed her, and was constantly looking over his shoulder and around his high chair to see if he could find her.

 today is actually finally really sort of spring weather.  it's mid-50s, and that makes it just plain hard to figure out how to dress your eight month old.  i think i got it right.  after much walking, we ended up back at our old stomping grounds, the prospect park tot lot.  milo dove right in, and now penny is a big kid there, so she was doing all sorts of daredevilish things, and charming the other kids' parents.

i'm so glad to be able to get outside finally.  hopefully all of our coughs and runny noses will clear up as we are trapped inside with our germs less and less.  i'll do my best to get a photo of milo's one tooth before it is joined by the next.
