Hoppy Easter!

Zoe enjoyed her first Easter, complete with an Easter egg hunt! Dad hid some eggs on the rug in the living room and Zoe crawled toward the treasures as though there was no tomorrow...and then crawled right past them toward her Daddy! So she needed a little bit of help recognizing that they were new toys for her. And when she did, she was so happy! Not only did they have yummy puffs inside, but they sure were fun to shake and eat!

Check out the video below and decide for yourself who was more excited about the puff-filled Easter eggs!

Gnarly

Everett decided he needed to pick up skateboarding again. So did his buddy, Chris. Chris got a skateboard ramp for Christmas and so the Gills made the trip to Atlanta to check it out. Chris would be in the video too, but...he broke his arm...skateboarding.

Star Wars and ducks

Anyone who knows us knows we're big Star Wars (as in the original movies!) fans. Everett is such a big fan that he made Zoe these special onesies by ironing on various Star Wars characters and logos. The top picture is from Zoe's first week in this world, still all wrinkly and very wide-eyed, wearing one of the onesies made especially for her by her Daddy.

Why do I mention this now? Well I just had to show you a picture of Zoe post-bath time. This is when we call her Obi Won Ke-baby, after good ol' Obi Won Kenobi. I don't know why, but it really makes me laugh when we say that. Zoe loves her bath time! She plays with her blinking ducks and floating turtles and splashes and laughs. Oh she's going to have fun when we get her to a pool or ocean this summer for sure!

On the other end of the spectrum, when Zoe cries, she sometimes sounds like Chewbacca, so I've been calling her Wookie Gill. Sometimes that makes me laugh too.
