April has been a whirlwind in our house with teething, teething and even more teething! And as many of you know…TEETHING = NO SLEEP and no sleep for me means I transform into a zombie mama trying to keep things running in the household! A visit to the Zimmer museum, a handful of trips to the garden, a plane ride to the Bay Area for a visit, three Easter Egg Hunts, and several molars later, we have officially survived and baby K is now all smiles (with new teeth and all)!!
Exploring, imagining and playing with friends at the Zimmer Museum (K’s favorite is the ball pit…she could sit in there for hours!)
Celebrating my birthday at Balboa Island (yes, her highlights always have to do with food) and getting a kick out of K’s first Benihana experience.
Several visits to Aidan’s Place Park in Westwood ~ of course K gravitates to the giant carrot 🙂
Watching ever so patiently for her eggshell garden to grow.
Making multiple visits to our neighbor’s garden where she replant her bean plant and helped water it (not to mention her socks, shoes and jeans too) with the hose.
Painting eggshells with homemade natural dye (strawberries, tumeric, blueberries, carrots and kale).
Decorating eggs with dot paint, stickers, markers, you name it!
Devouring her first Easter bunny shaped breakfast (which she didn’t realize were in the shape of bunnies til after she ate ’em!)
Hunting for Easter eggs at the park, in the backyard and around the house (scavenger hunt) and even meeting the Easter Bunny!
Discovering and reading some of her new favorite books (did I mention K has an obsession over eggs???)
Exploring the beautiful scenery at Greystone Mansion & Park in Beverly Hills.
Celebrating her new teeth coming in with her first trip to the ice cream shop (where she was able to enjoy the ice cream along with us, that is!). She LOVES the coconut cream based ice cream at Kippy’s in Venice and cannot wait to go back for another visit!
Ending the month with a special visit to Tongva Park with her Papa & Nana where she splashed and played in the water play area, climbed up the rock wall and slid down the bumpy roll-y slide over and over again (pictures to come).
What a month!!!!
