We hope everyone who celebrates Easter had a wonderful one...and if you don't celebrate, I hope you had a wonderful spring Sunday. :)
We were excited to celebrate Isaiah's first Easter. I gathered Isaiah's gifts (no candy this year, obviously), and set up Isaiah's basket on the dining room table before bed. Strangely, when we woke up (at 5:30am, because Isaiah was too excited to sleep!), the basket was gone and a pink egg laid on the table, under a blanket, in its place. Inside of the egg was a little poem (Someone is making Baba- Isaiah's great grandmother- proud)...and so we were off to search for Isaiah's Easter basket.
At 5:30 in the morning.
I think there were a total of 5 eggs hidden around the house, each with a clue inside....I'll spoil it for you, Isaiah's basket was in the ottoman in our living room.
Isaiah was highly entertained by the eggs, the rhymes, and the end result.
Later in the day, Isaiah's grandmom came to visit and spend some one on one time with Isaiah; she also took a great Easter picture for us.
The rest of the day was spent with family (I forgot to ask for permission to show their pics on the blog so you just get a recap). Isaiah got to meet lots of family and was absolutely in love with his cousins. They made him laugh (I'm talking crazy whole body hysterics) and told him some great Calvin and Hobbs stories.
We were really impressed with how well Isaiah handled the day. When we arrived, the party had begun and it was loud and exciting and Isaiah just soaked it all in. He smiled, he observed, and he played.
We're so excited that we were able to begin new traditions with Isaiah....I'm just hoping that in the future....some of them start after 7am, or at least sunrise? :)
