The terrible twos have begun...and Sarah is a drama queen on top of it. She gets big crocodile tears when she is told "no" with any sort of firmness. For a while there if she realized she wasn't going to get her way, like not being picked up or something, she would throw herself onto the floor or crib all dramatically and bawls like it was the end of the world. I know it sounds terrible of me, but it is quite comical. She doesn't do it anymore so I feel like I'm safe to share. She has picked up signing really well thanks to the Baby Signing Time DVDs, which we watched a thousand times and the songs are on repeat in my head. She has quite a lot of opinions and babbles constantly. She loves being naked and running around the house. She's so darn cute I don't have the heart to stop her. She splashes most of the water out of the tub and LOVES playing peek a boo. She has learned how to cover her eyes with her hands so she will stop everything, throw her toys and "hide" at random times and wait for us to ask where she went. She is tanner than both Michael and I...and I painted her toenails this week. Who would've thought I could enjoy being girly. She has figured out the TV, and can climb down from things now. However, if she is distracted she sometimes just walks right off. The other day she was about to fall and I was scrambling from the other side of the bed to catch her and she just sat there and laughed. She thought it was quite funny. Her stuffed animals are taking over the apartment, and she loves giving then hugs. She just learned how to give kisses, granted they are open mouthed and a little slobbery, but we love them all the same. She has to get both cheeks though. It makes me laugh.
Easter weekend was fun. We played at the park and had an Easter Egg Hunt at church. Sarah loved her basket (literally). She took everything out of it and wanted the basket itself. She loved the duck and was really frustrated that it didn't come off. She got so mad I finally had to hide the basket from her. Luckily both grandparents spoiled her with stuffed animals that she could snuggle. She looked adorable in her Easter dress! Michael was gone most of the day on Sunday so we headed up to my parents for dinner. We had fun outside and Sarah got some longboarding lessons from Uncle Brian, who we can't get enough of.
Michael's Parents were in town for Martha and Andrew's graduation. (Woohoo! Congratulations to them.) We had a lot of fun spending time with them, and Sarah was putting on a dance show and loving on Grandma.

We went to Got Air up in Kaysville, and Sarah had a blast!
She got stuck in the foam pit a few times.
The Southwick's brought Sarah a sucker from Disneyland...
