We had our first family Easter this year! It really seems like Easter keeps getting earlier and earlier every year. Easter in March in Missouri means that you never really know what the weather will be like. I got Lana this really pretty, watercolor Easter dress, and I wasn’t expecting it to be so cold. Luckily, she still fit into one of her warm 9 month cardigans by OshKosh B’Gosh.
We got Lana a few special gifts for her Easter basket this year. She got her first cup that has an actual straw in it! It has a kitty on top of it, which makes it perfect. 🙂 Lana loves sipping water from a straw, and we always give her water from a straw when we eat dinner or go out to eat. I think she just thinks the water is extra special that way. This girl seriously loves her water! She also got her very first Easter book explaining the true meaning of Easter. I couldn’t help getting her a couple more super hero shirts for this Summer as well, because I knew her Dad would love that. I would say Lana definitely enjoyed her Easter basket.
Our first family Easter went pretty well, and we started off the day with a beautiful Church service to celebrate the main reason for this wonderful holiday. After Church, we had some lunch and quality time with family. We were so thankful that the sun had come out at this point. Family really completes everything, and we are so thankful for that.
At the end of the day, I thought more deeply about our first family Easter. It made me think about how fast time flies by and how much Lana has grown already. It doesn’t help my emotions that she turns a year old in May. She is going to keep growing, learning, and experiencing new, exciting things. Every holiday that we experience with her is another memory that we will forever hold close to our hearts. It doesn’t matter how the day goes necessarily, but what means the most at the end of the day is that we are together.
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend full of love, laughter, and family.
