The problems with being mobile

Sara Beth can move much more easily now.  Her play room can now be considered her base of operations as she begins in there, but will quickly move out into the living room or the kitchen to go exploring.  Here is a picture of her at her table laying out her plans for her next living room adventure. 

Also, on the left in the background of the above picture is one of Sara Beth's new toys.  It is the classic stack-of-colored-rings toy.  But the thing that bugs me to no end is that they are not in the right color order.  The rings should go red, then orange, yellow, green, and finishing off with blue.  Well, this one messes up that classic formula and puts the blue ring between the orange and yellow rings.  Apparently the toy designers have never seen a proper rainbow.  I have tried to come up with some sort of solution to fix this egregious color error but Heather says that I might be overreacting.

Every day, Sara Beth wants more and more big people food.  Heather cut up some pieces of apply and placed them on Sara Beth's tray.  Sara Beth decided she wanted to bite her own pieces off of the apple.  Since, she does not have a full set of teeth yet, Sara Beth experiences some difficulty extracting apple bites.  In order to both placate her desire for eating the apple like a big girl and my desire for her to not choke on a too large piece, I have come up with a new way to feed her apple.  I will pre-bite the apple, nearly taking off a small bit of apple.  Then I hold the apple up to Sara Beth and her little mini-teeth are able to knock off that preapproved bit of apple.  It does get a little messy if she has had any food before the apple; she left some drool covered muffin crumbs on the apple for me. 

It isn't even Easter yet, and Sara Beth has already been on two Easter Egg hunts.  It was cold and windy so we put a hat on her.  True to form, she picked up her one egg, and then was done for the day.

Ignore the fact that I am wearing short sleeves; I will typically wear shorts until it gets into the 40s.  

Also, Sara Beth doesn't know what to make of the Easter Bunny.
