Happy Easter 2017

Happy Easter 2017

What a difference a year makes! Last year, Aiden was barely able to sit up on his own. I remember being so excited to dye Easter eggs with him, but I had to put him in a booster seat and he definitely wasn’t dunking the eggs on his own.

This year we had a ton of fun. Basically the whole month of April was dedicated to Easter. My mom and dad always made Easter really special and I have such fun memories as a kid. I love that I can share those fun things with Aiden.

Highlights from our family Easter celebrations in 2017. This year we had a ton of fun with our 16-months-old during the month of April.

We did several Easter egg hunts.


We dyed eggs.

On Easter day, we had a great day exploring, unloading an Easter basket, reading, blowing bubbles, and, of course, more Easter egg hunting with Aiden’s cousin.

Of course, we took tons of pictures!

All in all it was a great Easter season <3

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic toddler, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
