I thought I would share my Easter with all you moms...maybe you will post about your day and we can see how different or similar our wonderful toddlers are!!!
The day started at 6 am when he went to his snack table for his juice. On the table was a small Easter basket with a stuffed bunny, a little book, a small toy, and an egg filled with a few treats. As with anything new, my cautious son spied it closely for a half hour, sometimes up close, sometimes from a same distance out of the corner of his eye. Finally assured it wouldn't jump and attack him and that it wasn't a trick, he took it to the ground and tore in!! The contents were spread across the livingroom floor in seconds!! I had put jellybeans in the egg so they would make a nice shaking sound. I was a little hesitant about him eating them, so I was right there to moderate; he took one in his mouth, sucked and spit it out. Did he not like it?? Oh no, he loved them....five more just like that!! He finally chewed one before I took them away. Next was a little chocolate bunny....he bit right into the ears then shared with his Mommy, who polished the rest off in one bite!!! After a much healthier breakfast (LOL!!) I attempted my egg hunt in the backyard. I wasn't really expecting much but was excited to see since he is walking around so well! Well, he wouldn't even step foot into the part of the yard where all the eges were laid out!!! And this is an area he instists on going any other day! Oh well! He did get them later, when Daddy took him out and I was napping! It was a fun day; I most enjoyed him shaking the eggs filled with different things to make fun sounds!!
These early memories are really just for me, but I am cherishing them. Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday!!!
