This is going to be a post with lots of pictures.

Justin and I dyed Easter eggs for Koryn :) Here she is with the eggs I made for her.

Here's Koryn in her adorable Easter dress!

My mom made each of us our own Easter baskets and I always loved getting it out each year and looking at it. I decided I to do this with my kids so I made Koryn a basket this year. Here's her basket with all of her goodies.

It turned out so cute and I love it! Here's a close up of the flower on the front.

Here's a picture of the little flower that is on each side.

Here's Justin's basket with all of his goodies. I made this basket for him our first Easter together.

We got our sod put in. Here's the front yard

We also finally got our fence put up. Here's Justin helping put up the cross bars.

Here's all of the planks up. We cut the top of the fence in a rainbow pattern, but I haven't taken a picture of that yet. I'll get one once we get the fence stained.

Here's a picture of the copper tops that we put on all the posts. You can get an idea of what the rainbow pattern looks like.

While the guys worked on the fence I took Koryn out to try out swimming. How cute is this swimsuit?

We got Koryn her very own tiny swimming pool. It was basically like a bath :)

We started Koryn on solid foods about 1 month ago. She loves rice cereal, oatmeal, peas, pears, bananas and apples. I thought we get some funny faces out of her, but we didn't get a single one! She loves it all!

Koryn is such a ham in front of the camera! How's this for a cute picture?

Justin was brave enough to do a Mother's Day project with Koryn involving paint. Here's some pictures of the process.

She looks so cute and I loved my artwork!

We also celebrated Justin's birthday. We had a football themed surprise party. Our friends the Allens and the Cooks came to celebrate.

Here's the cake. Yummy!

We also did a pinata. This was partly for Justin's entertainment, but also for our friends' daughters.

Sadly, we STILL have candy from the pinata and it's already been 2 weeks!

Justin and I also celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. Has it really been 5 years? We got a babysitter for Koryn (her 2nd ever!) and she did so well! We went out to dinner at the Melting Pot. It was sooooo good!

For Memorial Day we got together with some friends for a BBQ. Too bad it kinda rained that day. Oh well, it was still fun. Here's Koryn all decked out in red, white and blue.

The other day Justin went to change Koryn's diaper and she came back looking like this.

Is it really that hard to dress a kid the right way? haha!

She loves to watch Baby Einstein movies. I usually get some from the library, but I haven't gone lately so we just watch the short clips on YouTube. Look at how happy she is! She was laughing at some animals that were on the screen right before I took the picture.

She loves tummy time and she just started working on getting up on her knees. She doesn't stay up too long so it's hard to get a picture. This is the best one I've gotten so far.

Her other new trick is to scoot backwards. She usually finds herself in situations like this.

She'll go backwards and turn at the same time and somehow always manages to get under the couches or stuck against the leg of the coffee table. I have a feeling it won't be too long before she's crawling. Where has my baby gone?

This is how she fell asleep the other night.

Is that not too cute!?

These are just some cute pictures I've taken lately.

Here's a video of her waving. It's so cute! She's kinda starting to figure it out.

You HAVE to watch this one. It's adorable! She has the cutest laugh! (Not that I'm biased or anything) :)
