This time of year really is the best, nothing can beat the return of warm weather & bright, blue skies after a long winter stuck inside. This week I’m obviously biased, spring break holds an even more special place in my heart now that I have a little lady to spend it with. Our plans for this week really don’t involve going much farther than the park or the mall (just how we like it), & of course, we can’t wait to end our sweet week celebrating all things Easter!!
A few weeks ago, we kept our holiday picture-taking tradition alive with some pictures of our favorite bunny. We planned around the weather forecast for a day outside, it’s Waverly’s favorite place to be so it’s always a no-brainer to do picures there. Naturally, that morning she had her first real deal, legimate fall right on the pavement. It came complete with a battle wound right at the tip of her nose, just to prove she is her father’s daughter & of course, to really look like a bunny.
How so very festive of her.
We have also been busy baking bunnies,
between our brunch this past weekend & getting ready for a fun-filled Easter weekend in a few days, I just can’t stop pinning (& then making) spring sweets & treats! The more colorful, the better, which makes funfetti cupcakes totally acceptable & perfect for this season. I took the crate tip from Jessica at Little Baby Garvin
, I’m not sure if there is much cuter than mini-cupcakes in an egg crate?! They were a welcome addition to our brunch & I can’t wait to use this egg crate more in the days to come!
I was determined to dye Easter eggs with Waverly this year, maybe not the first thing you would think to do with a wild 20-month old, but I had to at least attempt. I planned ahead, bribed her to stay in the high chair with some of those funfetti cupcakes. It worked for about five minutes like usual, & then it was plan-B on her favorite leopard chair pulled up to the counter.
I had read about putting the egg in a whisk for toddlers, which really was super effective & we rolled with it for a few minutes. I wish in that same article they had included what to do when your child then takes the cup of pink water & pours it over her, the counter & naturally, that leopard chair.
Yep, not my first mom fail & definitely won’t be my last. 😉 I did finish off the eggs myself, added some flower stickers, made it our dining room centerpiece & called it a success.
We hope that you had a wonderful weekend, & best wishes for the week to come.
