"Go, go", "Ball", and Easter

Austin doesn't really talk. He says "Mama" only when he cries and "Dada" just as a babbling noise. But the other day when I woke the boys up from their nap in the afternoon, we headed down the stairs and Austin waved his little arm in the air (as if shooing Tyler along) and said "Go go!!!". Clear as day. I laughed and thought, "where did he get that???"... then I realized that I say that almost EVERY time they are going up or down the stairs because they take forever, dawdling and what not. So I'm always saying "go, go!". So that was hilarious. And THEN, on Saturday after we picked them up at Doug's parents house, he said "ball", pointing at his new ball that he got from Gramma during his two night stay.
Needless to say... he USED to be quiet. :)

Also, two weeks ago (or was it 3 weeks?) we celebrated Easter at Great Grandpa and Grandma Roberts' house with lots of cousins and aunts and uncles. Tyler and Austin were the only two kids that could walk so they got to hunt for Easter eggs by themselves. Though, it was really just Ty. Leann Burgess, our cousin, was sweetly trying to get Austin to pick up ONE egg and put it in his basket for a picture... it was soooo funny because she was so patient and it took at least 10 minutes for Austin to pick it up... and then he threw it at her (in a loving way... he thought it was a ball). A very fun Easter. Austin, cousin Lucy and Tyler

P.S. My mother -in-law, Michele, took these pictures... so I have to credit her!!! Mine wouldn't be nearly this good! :)
