It's Spring Break! That means we went from doing everything, to doing absolutely nothing. Oh well, at least we have horseback riding tomorrow.

Today we got our Easter cards from Grandma Jan...thanks Jan! Cooper's card had blank egg pictures and came with stickers of face parts etc. to make the eggs into people. I figured Cooper would just put the stickers on the sofa like he does with all of his stickers, but just in case I showed him on one egg how to decorate it. I was really surprised when he started decorating the rest of the eggs by himself! He had no problem getting the eyes and mouths in the right place on all the eggs, even though some of the stickers were a little abstract. I was so proud of him!

He has also been starting some pretend play (I think). The last few days he plays this game with his rocking horse where he knocks the horse over on it's side. Then he pretends like he is mad by grunting and making fists and says "Oh, Quinn!". It is so funny! Quinn is never around but it seems pretty clear to me that he is pretending that Quinn knocked the horse over. I know he isn't actually mad because it only lasts a second and then he is happy and goes and does it again. I haven't been able to get it on video yet :( Between that game and his constant "No, Quinn", he says the word Quinn at least a 100 times a day. Oh well, there could be worse words he could be saying :)

Quinn seems happy to be home from school. I think he needed a break, he works so hard most of the time. He doesn't seem to mind that Cooper says him name all day long, thankfully.
