April has been a busy month for us. We spent another weekend in San Antonio, this time, for "Mom's Night Out". My best friend Brandi and I got a hotel room downtown and partied the night away! Ok, we were in by midnight. We can't hang like we used to! It was my first night away from Jon David and I was nervous. Of course, all was well and Jon David was so busy playing with family, I doubt he missed me at all! I missed him terribly right before I fell asleep. I am so used to checking on him before I go to bed. I was worried he would decide to start walking and I'd miss it. Every time we see his cousin Ella (who is 2 months older), he comes home with new skills! She is walking now, so I thought I might miss his first steps. I didn't miss any milestones, so I guess it is ok for me to get out every once in a while! Jon David's big thing now is drinking out of a cup. He does a pretty good job! If you are drinking it, he wants some! He can even drink out of a (water) bottle. Not to be worried, there was water in that coffee mug! We are in the process of trying really mushy cubes of food that he can feed himself. These are times I'm glad for our dog Shelby, who loves to clean the kitchen floor!

Each week until Jon David was six months old, I took a picture of him in front of the car my mom made for his room. After that, I went to taking the picture every month. Now that he is so mobile, it's difficult to make him sit still for the camera! I may have not taken the picture I was thinking of, but I think I got something much more precious...
While we were visiting for Easter weekend, we also celebrated Pop's birthday! On Friday, we went to one of his favorite "hole in the wall" places for breakfast. Jon David gummed tortilla chips, ate guacamole, tried barbacoa, spit out a piece of corn tortilla and threw tripas on the floor! Pop was so pleased with his grandson and said frijoles (beans) are next!

We spent the holiday with the de la Garza's, my brother Kip and his wife Normandy. It was also our chance to celebrate Jon's father's birthday. There was lots of family, food and fun! Jon David enjoyed his first Easter, poor guy was so tired every night, he slept in every morning (yea for us!) Alas, we are back home and back to reality!
