One of the most exciting things about having a baby is all of the ‘firsts’. There’s nothing quite like reliving your childhood through your baby’s first experiences – especially when it comes to holidays! Blair was a little bit too young to really understand what to do with gifts at Christmas, but we were pleasantly surprised on Easter when we put her Easter basket in front of her and she knew exactly what to do!
It was so fun to watch her reach in the basket and grab her new toys and swimsuit (we signed her up for swim lessons in May!). She’s at a really fun age where she’s really starting to understand things – and it seems like crawling is on the horizon…she can get her legs underneath her but she hasn’t quite figured out how to move forward yet!
We spent Easter morning at home, opening our baskets and putting the finishing touches on the mini cheesecakes I made for Easter dessert. Then we spent the afternoon with family, and despite a rough few days of teething, Blair was super happy most of the day.
The weather was gorgeous, so we were able to spend some time outside! I’m looking forward to the warmer days we’re going to have, because Blair has a ton of adorable warm weather outfits that I can’t wait for her to wear. I especially loved her Easter dress – which I’m so glad still fit her! I bought it last summer at Carter’s without knowing how the clothes would fit her or how fast she would grow. So far, we’ve only had one or two pieces of clothing that she wasn’t able to wear before she grew out of them!
Now I’m just wishing the weekend was still here – why are the weekends so darn short and the work weeks so long?!
