First Easter

Easter is my favorite holiday.  Always has been, and now I think it always will be.  Since meeting Max, our family has celebrated several major holidays (starting with Thanksgiving and a November birthday and all the way through the winter holidays).

Today was the first major holiday that we spent together.

We started out with Church -- he made it maybe 15 minutes through the first part of the service, which is truly a continual improvement!  Afterwards, Jason gave him his "baby blessing" -- the Mormon version of a christening. Both of our mothers were there, Max wiggled like the mini-tornado he is, and it was a really special moment for everyone.

The Easter Bunny came while Max was asleep for his nap -- and happened to be VERY generous this year. OK, maybe it was a little over-the-top, but I am quite convinced that several different bunnies happened to be a part of this Easter...table.

Afterwards we took ourselves out to the front of the house for an egg hunt!  It took Max a few eggs to get the idea of it (partly due to the fact that he was totally fascinated by the lawnmower running next door!) but pretty soon he was finding eggs all over!  (Even better -- he seemed more interested in finding the eggs just because it's sort-of fun than because the eggs are filled with sugar!).  Later in the afternoon he even went back out to look for more!

Amazing what you can find in the yard!

Happy Easter from our family to yours!

  1. I can't believe it's been this long since I've been to your site! I hadn't even seen pics of him at home - how weird. He is totally adorable. I'm so happy for you guys that your dreams of having a family have finally come true. I hope the transition phase is going okay. Reach out whenever!
