Before we get to the toddler antics of May (night terrors! tomato tantrums!), here's a recap of April in pics. Clara had her 15-month well-visit in April and was 22 pounds (40ish percentile) and 31 inches (60ish percentile). She was no longer anemic, thanks to a near-daily dose of kidney/black beans.  Her language has exploded in the last few weeks, but was still slow-going in April, though she did add "owl." She also had 2 of the 3 hardcore tantrums she's had to date in April, one over having to wear shoes, and one over being forced (by mama) to vacate the driveway of a house where some friendly dogs live that she likes to harass (indefinitely, if you'll let her).  Overall, though, she was still a fun, sweet girl in April :)   Caution: a toooon of pics ahead:

My family has a crazy Easter egg decorating contest every year. (You can read about past entries at my old gardening blog.)   Here's my flamingo from this year:
