Laura's First Steps?

My favorite thing about my gym is the child care. Laura gets to be watched by these sweet, old southern ladies with a inch of orange foundation on their face and the greatest southern accents. They all call her "Miss Laura" and everytime I pick her up she smells like rose scented perfume.

Last week, I went to get her after I had finished my work out and the lady told me, "Miss Laura is getting good at walking!" I responded, "You mean standing up?" She said, "No, walking. She took 3 steps all by herself." What? Did I miss my baby's first steps?

I really hope that Laura was not so inconsiderate as to take her first steps in front of the nice YMCA ladies and not her mama who is with her the other 23 hours of the day.

My superior athletic abilities

On our picnic last Sunday, my friend snapped this picture right after I threw what I thought was a pretty good pass to Peter.

Yeah, I think this picture sums up my athletic abilities pretty well. It looks more like I am doing a dance move than throwing a football. I mean seriously, have you ever seen anything more awkward?

We had such a wonderful Easter! The Easter brought Laura a cute bunny hat (Peter surprised us us by going to Target yesterday to buy Laura an Easter present and some chocolate for me.)

In between sessions of conference we went to a park and had a picnic with some friends. I am loving this 80 degree weather. I know that it is going to get really hot soon so I am going to enjoy the perfect weather as long as I can.

And here are a couple pictures of Laura's Easter dress.
