Sarah is 1!

Sarah had a birthday at the beginning of March. I can't believe that she's a year old. She has been such a joy, and my best sleeper thus far. I remember being completely shocked when she started sleeping through the night, not waking up to eat, at 8 weeks old. Although she still won't let anyone else hold her, she's becoming more daring and likes to go off and explore things. She's not yet walking, but pulls herself to a standing position on everything and can stand for a few seconds on her own. (She's not a huge fan of this so it's really rare to get her to do it.)

She has some of the craziest hair. It's really long in the front and she can wake up with some of the funniest hairdos I've ever seen. Here are some pictures.

Although Michael and I were not here to celebrate her birthday (Michael had to go to Las Vegas for work and I decided to join him), she and her sisters had a great time hanging out with Michael's parents who came to our house to stay with the girls. Happy birthday, Sarah!

Here are lot of videos of what Sarah's been up to.

Easter weekend was a blast! I think what made it the best was absolute gorgeous weather we had. I think this is the first time in the 5 years that we've live in Rexburg that we've been able to have an easter egg hunt outside. The kids got a bunch of candy, glittering sidewalk chalk, colored bubbles, plastic jewelry. We had a great weekend.

We also attended the baptism of one of my piano students. It was so fun to see him take that important step. We had lunch at his house afterwards and I got to had out with his awesome family!

The girls looked so cute in their Easter dresses. I especially had fun experimenting with Annabelle's hair. I'm so glad she loves her long hair and doesn't ever want to cut it.
