Today was the best Easter ever! Granted it was my first. :) Mommy, Daddy, and I went to my Grandma and Grandaddy's church for service and then to lunch at their house. It was super cool because I got to hang out with my great gma Nana.
So yesterday was once again Pattison Family Fun Day and we began by going to meet some football players. Adibi, Flowers, and Brown were signing autographs at a local hotel here in Blacksburg before they are to go pro, so we took the opportunity to meet them.
Here they are signing autographs for all the nice people of Blacksburg.
Here is Auntie Lu with Adibi. Some would say she has a slight obsession... Mommy can relate... anyone heard of FRANK BEAMER?! Let's be serious kids!
Mommy got in on the action as well. She realizes she looks like she ate an entire cow and it went straight to her arm, but we digress.Then here you have me, relaxin' with my new fooseball... with autographs. GO HOKIES!
Auntie Lu bought me a Yertle the Turtle. I will forever be in debt to her because I love him. :)

I got to have a popsicle today! Now Mommy knows I'm only 5 months old, but she figured a little wouldn't kill me. She really just wanted to see what I would do with something so cold near my mouth. I'll tell ya what I did... I licked it, and frankly... I liked it! :)
Don't you worry though... Mommy is not going to make this a habit. :)
Mommy has noticed that I want to get my hands on EVERYTHING. She's afraid I'm going to get bored with some of my toys, so she's pulling some new ones out from all nooks and crannies of the house. Today she let me play with these little blocks. It was super fun! They were small enough for me to get my hands on, but big enough that I could put them in my mouth and not choke. What Mommy doesn't understand is that I really want to play with Winston, but he isn't very friendly... so I'll stick with the blocks. :)
So I still don't understand this whole St. Patty's Day thing, but I did notice Mommy and Daddy drinking some green "water" out of rather large looking fishbowl things. IIII DUNNO! It was fun though... they took me to Macado's for the first time. Everyone was singing and dancing around. There was plenty there to entertain me.

Happy St. Patty's Day you guys!!!! I'm so excited... this is my first one. Now I don't really understand this holiday at all, but Mommy bought me a new outfit... so honestly... who cares what it's about?! :) She even made me wear this silly thing on my head. Now Mommy is VERY against those silly hairbands people insist on putting in their little girls' hair, so people know they are in fact looking at a baby girl. I became a victim of this awful trend today... but for the record... it was a garter Mommy got in the dollar section at Target. :)
So Mommy is slightly obsessed with black and whites right now.
Mommy and Daddy haven't gotten any professional photographs taken of me yet, but they have loads of "tender moments" of/with me. What better way to make them look lovely and perhaps professional??? BLACK AND WHITE of course!
And finally... look at my little face! How can you possibly resist it?!

Rachel here. Bryan was playing with Reesie today, and it was so cute. She was laying on her little yellow and white blanket trying to lift her head. Now when she does this, we try to immediately help her to sit up. Bryan grabbed her little hands and was pulling her up (don't worry he was gentle... not barbaric), when she went right to her feet and didn't turn back.
We continue to practice... when it happens Mommy will sing it from the highest mountain top!
So yesterday was Pattison Family Fun Day. The rainy weather and my ability to stay awake and cranky put a bit of a damper on many of our plans. We began by going to The Olive Garden for some lunch. I managed to remain calm and smile at all the friendly people wanting to kidnap me from my family. I never get sick of the "oohs" and the "ahhs."

So Mommy has been trying to capture this face for months now. Unfortunately the camera was within arms reach when I started to show all I got. Here world... is my poop face.

On our way back from our trip we had to take an alternate route. Both ways we usually go were being slammed with blizzard conditions, so Daddy told us to head toward Nashville. Mommy and Uncle Aaron were pooped, so we stopped in Nashville for the night. On our way Mommy saw a sign for Metropolis "home of the giant Superman statue." How could she NOT stop? HELLO! Here is Uncle Aaron with the utterly amazing man himself.
I got in on the action as well...Look at how awesomely buff I am for almost 5 months!
So part of our visit to Iowa was my getting the chance to meet all of Mommy's relatives. First we met my great gma Nita. She was super nice to me and gave me the funniest bunny rabbit for Easter. Next we snuck into the hospital to visit my great gpa Jack. Mommy forgot the camera, so we didn't get a picture. Then a mean nurse lady came in and kicked us out! THE NERVE! Luckily gpa Jack got to come home before I had to head back to Virginia.
Iowa was great and I can't wait to visit again!
Oh how Mommy has missed the snow. She used to think it snowed a lot in Virginia... Iowa put that all to shame. I'm not sure how many inches there were when we got there... definitely over a foot though! The snow was the perfect backdrop for all of the visiting deer too! These were taken from my great gparents' living room window.
Hey there! Sorry it's been so long. Mommy, Uncle Aaron, and I had to take a surprise trip out to Iowa to see my great-gpa Jack. He had to spend some time in the hospital, but not to worry... he is feeling much better now and is home safe with my great gma Nita.
