Easter in KC

Liam was surprisingly good on the plane. I’d venture to say that I even prefer him at this age than I did last June — no bottles to mix, books entertain him now, and he even got in a brief snooze before we landed. I’ll wait to make my final assessment when we head back on Wednesday.

We’ve mostly been spending time with family, and I’m glad for it. It took Liam almost the whole week just to get used to my parents. He’s cutting molars, and I think he’s particularly cranky and needy right now. I took him on a play date with my friend Stephanie and her daughter, Mira, which went pretty well. But lunch out with my friends at work was a hassle — he spent more time running around the restaurant than sitting, so I hardly got to talk to anyone. And brunch with my college friends was a disaster — he wanted me to hold him the whole time, he fussed a lot, and he wasn’t interested in eating.  I hardly got to talk to them, either. I think he’s had more fun just playing with Evie and Camden either at my mom’s or at Jill’s.

We had a big family dinner and easter egg hunt for Evie and Liam yesterday. Liam managed to find a couple of eggs, but he’d only hold two at a time, so once he found a third, he’d just drop one and grab the new one. Then Evie would swoop in and exclaim triumphantly that she’d found another egg. Evie was such a cutie. Lots of video and photos to come when I’m back, I promise.

Tonight I’ve got dinner with some of James’s friends, and then another playdate tomorrow. And then we’re off! Wish us luck! Eek, naptime’s over. Until next time…

  1. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that lunch was a disaster, but we wish we could have visited more. We were happy to go home to our low maintenance furry gray child. Hopefully we can arrange for an adult night out when next you are in KC!
