Okay, Where Did March Go??

Our little baby is growing up!!!! Sandy is almost 7 months old now (above photo is at 8 weeks old) and is such a great dog. We are really fortunate that we have her! The kids love her and even Grumpy (Eric) loves her! She is a keeper!

It is springtime here in CA! Emilie couldn't resist picking some (okay, the only flowers) flowers from our front yard and I couldn't help but take a few photos of her.

Everyone better take a seat for this one. The big news of the year is that the Erickson home is now a cleaner, allergen free home. WE HAVE LAMINATE FLOORING. Why, oh why didn't we do this sooner. What a treat! Everyone loves it!

Baseball season has begun and we are all having a great time. Emilie is playing A ball and Paul is playing AAA ball. Emilie has a personal batting coach and has since improved greatly with her hitting. At her game tonight she went 3 for 3 and even smacked a beauty to left field. Oh, and in case you are wondering, her personal batting coach is big brother Paul. He has been very helpful in showing Emilie some batting tips, including tapping her bat on the bottom of her cleat!! Paul is doing great too. This year he is mostly catching. Flipped me out in the beginning, but he is doing very well at it. It is a good position for Paul because it keeps his mind working and thinking!
This photo was taken on opening day! What a beautiful day in SV! Last year it rained on opening day and then through April. We even wore shorts and flip flops in March! Woo Hoo!

Since Paul is now playing catcher and Emilie has played catcher for a few games, Nicolas thinks that he is also a catcher. He usually dons the extra catchers gear during Emilie's games and plays catch with Eric. What a crack up!
A little monkey business...and an April fool's meal of sushi from Cafe du Mom!
