Nothing much!

Well, not much new is going on here in the McEldowney household. Let's see, what can I tell you? Jesse is fast and furious; he's into everything. He's also a great hugger. Sometimes, though, I think he's working us to get things like food. That kid loves to eat! He's a very sweet kid. I think that he will grow up to be a very caring young man.

The weather has turned colder the last 2 days, so we haven't had much outside time. I think it will warm up in a few days. We are looking at new vehicles, in particular crossover vehicles. Jamie's Blazer has been on the fritz lately and we will probably have to do something soon. I hate the whole process of buying a car but am excited about the possiblity of driving something with more room.

We're also planning a trip to Texas in June to visit some of our best friends, the Dukes. We have missed them since they left us and can't wait to visit. Well, I guess we had more going on than I thought. Until next time...

It's been so long!

I thought I'd write a new post since it's been a while. So what's new? Well Jesse is an expert walker now and into everything. He stole a roll from his daddy the other night when Jamie put his plate on the table to get something. Jesse just reached up and grabbed it. We laughed so hard. The little thief!!

Jamie has enjoyed his "business trip" this week to Kiawa Island, SC. I think they did more celebrating than business but he deserved it. I'm a little bit bitter that spouses couldn't go. Jamie says he would rather be there with me and Jesse anyway.

Last night we ate dinner with my sister and brother-in-law at their new apartment. Jesse had a blast just walking around checking everything out. He also loved that his Uncle Danny fed him ice cream. That kid is so spoiled!

My Review of 3-in-1 Sit and Store Tub-Side Seat

Originally submitted at One Step Ahead

You'll be supervising hundreds of baths in the years ahead, so make yourself comfortable! No kneeling and bending: our tub-side seat lets you sit in comfort. And what value: it doubles as a step-stool and storage bin. Air-vented, so it's perfect for bath toys. With two-height positions and a skid-r...

I love this seat!

Pros: Lightweight, Easily Assembled, Dries Quickly

Best Uses: Toddlers, Washing, Bathroom Safety, Bathing

Describe Yourself: First Time Parent

This solved two problems for me. First, the tub toy net we had wouldn't stay put. Second, I was tired of sitting on my knees to give my son a bath. This stores all of his bath toys and makes bathing him a lot easier on me. My son also sits on it to get his teeth brushed and will be able to use it as a step stool when he's older. It's the perfect solution!

Coloring Eggs

I decided that we would try coloring Easter eggs this year. And, as you can see, it was an adventure. Jesse had a blast sticking his eggs in the colored water. He liked to stick his whole hand in it. At one point he spilled the yellow all over his high chair tray. They turned out great and we all had fun as a family.


Well, I am finally getting our Easter pics on our blog. We had a great Easter even though it was cold. I am so thankful that our Lord and Savior died and rose again so that we could have eternal life. May we remember His sacrifice every day, not just on Easter.

We went to my parents' church and house on Easter Sunday. Jesse looked so handsome in his suit! We enjoyed a great meal, time with family and an indoor Easter egg hunt. Nana and Papaw stuffed the plastic eggs with cookies just for Jesse. There were a few chocolates in there for us adults too!
