April 26th, 2011

We started off the month by celebrating Brody’s 1st birthday!!! Both sides of the family gathered to celebrate and we even had a surprise visit from Great Grandma DeGroot and Aunt Karen, who came all the way from South Dakota! We spent a day up at Grandma and Grandpa McCoy’s visiting with everyone. Unfortunately that night Great Grandma Flo had a mini-stroke and was hospitalized for a few days. She was released from the hospital and is doing much better. Brett and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary this month as well. We went to Mitchel’s Steakhouse while my mom babysat the boys. We got ready for Easter by coloring eggs and we went to see the Easter Bunny. The Easter Bunny brought all kinds of goodies for Martin and Brody. We concluded our Easter Celebration by going up to the McCoy’s where Martin and Brody hunted for eggs. We also celebrated Ross’ Birthday.
Brody had his 12 month well visit this month and weighs 21lbs 3oz and is just shy of 30 inches long. Brody is a walking, talking and now pointing machine. He loves to ask “What’s That?” Martin is as rambunctious as ever. It’s a wonder that he grows and gains weight since he is constantly moving. He doesn’t even stay still while he is sleeping. Hopefully all these April showers will truly bring May flowers!
