Good news! I did Mal's dreadlocks ALL by myself! We have been going to the salon to have them re-twisted and cleaned up every 2 weeks which is kinda INSANE. Reason #1. It takes almost 3 hours every time. (that's 3 hours of me having to hold him still and keep him quiet and happy. Tricky, my friends, very tricky) Reason #2. It costs $40 (plus a hefty tip because well, anyone doing the hair of a 2 yr old deserves a big fatty tip) So, this means we're spending over $100 a month on THE HAIR OF A 2 YEAR OLD. And that is just re-freaking-diculous. So last week I decided it was time to attempt it. And it worked! It was a pre-Easter miracle! And as an extension of the pre-Easter miracle it only took about an hour. Cause I have mad dreading skills. (Or cause I don't do it as thoroughly as the hair dresser did but whatever)
So let us rejoice that our Lord (and the Easter Bunny) has risen from the grave and also that I am saving $100 a month! Woot!
We of course, did the traditional Easter egg hunt... He didn't really care about finding the eggs as much as he just wanted to eat the glorious treats inside. It was his first M&M experience and it was too delicious to be able to hunt whilst eating. So we mostly just ate.
Come on, Mal... We're giving you a few subtle hints here...
But who cares about dumb ol' eggs when you can play in the mud??
And moisturize your squishy little face with it...
We took a few Spring pics... Cause that's what you do on Easter.
Malak likes to play with my hair a lot these days, which I love and highly encourage. It is beyond me as to why he is eating it in this pic... and why I am apparently oblivious to it.
we have been married for 8 years and are still having a blast...the Lord has laid Africa on our hearts and so we adopted a baby boy from Ethiopia...it was a long journey, but the Lord has blessed us and our son with more love than we could have imagined! It is such an exciting time!
