again with the eggs…

jasper has the weirdest little laugh…it has only been in the past month that she has really started to laugh and, man, does it just slay me!!!

the quality isn’t that great – the image had to be rotated and it squished everything in the process…can’t figure out how to fix that yet…but still, her laugh is unsquishable!!

our very own little pirate…

with her very own booty…or is that bootie?

the orange egg…

judy gave jasper a pile of plastic easter eggs to play with and she likes to bang them together and/or try to cram them into her mouth…they are twice the size of what her bitty mouth is capable of (for all that it is a wilks mouth) but she still tries!

here jon and jasper are passing the egg back and forth between the two of them…it is highly amusing to us all 🙂

served up on a platter…well, tray…

jasper likes to play with my collection of trays and since they aren’t breakable, won’t hurt her and keep her busy while i cook – i let her…her papa got in on the play by putting jasper on one of the trays and pushing her around like she was in a sled – of course, she loved it and then somehow the basket ended up on her head and well, the camera came out…how could it not?

step one: the exploration of the basket…

step two: the approval and wearing of the basket…

step three: the usage of the basket – perhaps it facilitates the aerodynamics of the tray sliding? or perhaps it just looks good 🙂

we love the zoo…

another perfect day at the zoo – i couldn’t have ordered better weather!!  it was cool and breezy so jon took the day off and we hightailed it to the zoo…we hit all of our favorite spots, ate a picnic lunch and just wandered around enjoying ourselves – jasper fell asleep in the stroller while jon and i watched the chimps for over an hour – we were pretty fascinated and highly amused at their antics…oh!!  i noticed that jasper is starting to actually pay attention to the larger animals if they are close enough and moving – she was quite focused on the zebra!!  that was a pretty cool thing to see – now we might have to start slowing down so she can see the animals instead of just meandering around ourselves…i can’t wait until she gets excited about her favorites – that will be cute to see…

lollipop, lollipop…

jasper lilith has discovered the joys of hardened sugar in the form of a lollipop!!  as in, now that she knows that she LIKES the candy on the end of the white stick poking out of her papa’s mouth, she WANTS it…she will share (and by share, i mean bogart YOURS) but who are we kidding?  she really just wants one all to herself 🙂

and here is where she is most certainly NOT sharing…

mother’s day times two…

mom came over to arlington on mother’s day instead of us going over there…so no swinging on the swing while watching the horses, but that is ok 🙂
we had a wonderful day, just the girls…we took mom out to our new favorite place to eat breakfast, enjoyed the food and each other’s company (stuffed jasper full of my israli rolls and grits) and then went back to the house for a lazy day…jon took some great pictures of all of us but mom has most of them on HER camera – which means i won’t get them until school is out and she has some downtime – only one week left, mom!!!
