The Last Straw!

So today I was talking to Jonathan and Eóin was just wandering around kicking his ball when I notice it is getting very quiet. When Eóin is walking around, he usually talks to himself - he is only quiet when he is concentrating on something...We went to investigate and found this! Apparently his ball stopped right next to my corner cupboard which spins around and Eóin found a jar of straws. He thought they were pretty cool...He thinks anything that makes a mess is pretty cool :-)

Easter Eggs

Today we had a wonderful Easter Sunday. Church was such a blessing - I really enjoyed every part of the service. Then we went to Eric and Christina's for lunch. Eric's parents were there too - it was a lot of fun. Eóin had fun watching Christina's cats run around although they did not think he was so great :-) I tried to hide some eggs for Eóin to find, but after the first two he didn't want to put them down to find any more so I just put them all out on the table for him to play with. He looks a bit dishoveled because he was way due a nap. He had a meltdown shortly following these pics so I did not get a family pic...oh well - maybe next time we are all dressed up I can snap a good one. Here are some egg ones anyway...

Just Like Mammy

Eóin is such a copycat these days it is so funny! He watches every thing I do so closely and when i least expect it, he will do something that he sees me do all the time.
Today, I was in the kitchen and Jonathan called me in to the living room to see Eóin. I had just been folding laundry and he found a dish cloth on the top of the basket and proceeded to start dusting the table. A few minutes later, Jonathan called me back in and Eóin had sat down beside my laundry basket and was "folding" the laundry himself (after pulling it out of the basket). He even patted them down on his lap just like I do!
Here is a video of him "grocery shopping" - He found his own little cart at the store to push around.

1 Year Pics

Here are Eóin's 1 year pics. They are a bit late because I was waiting for all his bruises to go away. I'm not sure that's possible on a 1 year old - he is always finding ways of getting new owies :-) Just follow the link!

At the Park

Today was such a beautiful day that it seemed a shame to stay inside. So we went to a nearby playground for a little while just to let Eóin get out for a while - he loves being outside. As soon as his coat comes out of the closet he is waiting at the door for me :-) Here are some pics

Trip to the Zoo

Yesterday was a beautiful day so we decided to go to the Kansas City Zoo. I love it there - it is so huge you can't do it all in one day - we just walked through Africa which is my favourite anyway :-) Eóin was so much more alert than the last time we went. He waved at the animals and roared at the Lions. He really looked at every animal...it was so fun to watch him. Here are some pics from the day. I added some animals ones just as proof we were there :-)
