We usually spend Easter with Erik's family in North Dakota. This year, with a 7 week old, we decided against making the 6-hour drive (Juliet is eating every 1-2 hours so that would have made for many stops and a LONG drive). We definitely missed his family and especially the Easter egg hunt with the grand prize egg (with $50 in it!) and his mom's delicious cooking.
These cute photos were taken on Saturday. I giggled the entire time taking them and then again while I viewed the photos. Juliet is losing her hair on top of her head but no where else! Oh my...she'll be my little baldy-girl soon.
A somewhat blurry family photo on Easter. On a side note, I had an almost-meltdown Sunday morning because not a single one of my dresses fit. It's my chest that's the issue. It's gotten quite large. So I threw on a cotton, long dress and covered it with a cardigan. Not the cutest I've ever looked. I need to go shopping.
Erik and I were much more excited about Juliet's Easter basket than she was!
Juliet's wondering, is it naptime yet?
The Easter brunch menu included:
A chicken sausage, veggie and cheddar quiche
Angel food cake with whipped cream and strawberries
We had fun dyeing Easter eggs. Now Erik has hard boiled eggs for breakfast all week.
I hope you enjoyed your Easter weekend too!
It's chilly in MN this week so Juliet and I are going to hang out at home and have lots of tummy time on her play mat, read books, sing songs and snuggle. Sounds like a pretty great week to me! Six weeks left of maternity leave and I plan to make the most of each second of it.
