Especially when it's your baby's first Easter. We arrived home last night from my aunt's with a tired baby and a trunk full of swag. From wagons and blocks to swimsuits and stuffed animals, Gabe made out like a bandit. Of course, his parents didn't go overboard. We leave that up to everyone else. I picked up a cheapy basket for him in the dollar aisle at target and filled it to the brim...and the brim meant three items.
We gave him a couple books, a new truck, a spiffy new bowtie and some boat shoes. He could have cared less though. He was digging the plastic eggs...
Of course, I didn't fare too bad either. I might have tweeted a little something about wanting to find a shit-ton of Cadbury minis as well as Tina Fey's book in my basket. Luckily the Easter bunny follows me on Twitter because I got exactly what I asked for.
I filled John's with new undershirts, a couple of books and a chocolate orange. I jazzed up a couple of apple bin baskets the night before with some ribbons I had...and used packing tape to attach them. I have zero interest in paying $10+ for a basket I won't be using any other time of year. But apple bins? Totally versatile.
We spent the rest of the day at John's sister's, then off to my aunt's house where once again we played Pass the Baby. This holiday also included lots of showing off our "walking" skills and generally being doted on. There hasn't been a wee babe in some time in my family so Gabe is quite the spectacle. And rightly so. He's a good boy.
I honestly didn't mean to dress us quite so....candy colored? The hot weather surprised us all so outfits had to be switched up last minute.
But not Gabe's outfit. This one was going to be worn come hell or high water. I could not get over the cuteness of tiny madras plaid shirt and of course, his babyAlexPKeaton bow tie tipped the adorbs scales. But I won't lie...kind of hard to keep a bow tie on a baby.
Sorry for all of my photos being half blurry. This is what happens when you're playing photog with a wine glass in one hand, a handful of mini eggs in another and a squirmy babe wanting to be anywhere but in front of the camera. Anyway, we had a great first Easter and it proved once again that holidays are a billion times more fun when wees are involved. I hope you had a great holiday weekend. What did the big wabbit bring you?
