Easter As A Mom

As I've written before, Easter was always the hardest holiday for me to handle childless. For many years I made Adam search for plastic eggs when he woke up Easter morning. The above picture is Adam being a good sport about coloring eggs with me. I always felt like Easter was for children and it was really hard to celebrate without a child.

Of course, all those painful Easters mean than the good ones now are even more special.

We took Jayden to the mall to meet the Easter Bunny and it was even more fun than I expected. And he did so well! My parents went with us and I think everyone had a great time.

Jayden got an Easter card from Aunt Christy and Uncle Eric, which he had a good time playing with.

On Easter morning, my parents came over to see Jayden get his Easter basket and do an egg hunt. I think I may have had even more fun than Jayden did.  

I wasn't sure how Jayden would do with an Easter egg hunt, but he loved it. He totally understood that he was supposed to be searching for eggs and putting them in a basket. Then he got to open them and find all his treats like cheddar and graham bunnies.

Later in the day we went to dinner at my parents' house and Jayden wore his Easter suit.

The suit was cute while it lasted :)

This Easter was what I always dreamed of all those years I waited to be a mother. I'm so thankful I get to be Jayden's mom.


  1. I'm so happy you finally got your Easter as a mom!!! Adorable pics!

  2. Ahh, the photos are adorable. I am so happy you had such a great Easter this year :) Your little guy is getting so big! And he's so handsome.

  3. Oh, my. It is quite possible that Mack may need that kitty keyboard. I know that she is nearly twenty years old, but she is a tad obsessed with the felines.

    Glad you all had a great Easter. Jayden looked adorable, as always.

  4. That's so awesome that you had such a good Easter. Jayden looks fabulous, both in his Easter suit and his regular clothes, and that video is frickin' adorable. :) Good thing you can turn off the "meow" sounds and make it "regular" or you might've driven yourself nuts with that gift! :)
