I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and a wonderful Easter. The weekends are just never long enough! Especially a holiday weekend.
My mom watched Liam during the day on Friday while I worked. Liam loves all the different toys at grandma and grandpa’s house. We decided to do dinner together since Liam was already there. My mom makes the best tacos so we had tacos for dinner. They were super yummy!
Then we watched the Wisconsin Badgers basketball game. The game started at 6:27 so for the first time since Liam was born we decided to get out of our routine and let him go to sleep at my parents house.
It was a fun game to watch with an unfortunate ending. Liam and Marley were too busy doing other things to watch the game.
Now, the whole getting Liam of of his routine did not go well. When we went to leave he woke up getting into his car seat. We figured he would fall asleep on the car ride like he always does but nope, he stayed awake. We got home and I took him out of his car seat and put him straight into his crib. He was ready to play. Rolling around and making little noises. I decided to have Joe give him a bottle and see if that helps. He fell asleep with the bottle but then woke up ready to play once Joe set him in his crib. We left him be and thankfully he eventually fell asleep. He was up a few times in the night as well. We are thinking we stick to the routine whenever possible!
Joe knows I have been wanting a pedicure forever now and like the sweet husband he is he sent a text to my mom and told her to take me to get a pedicure and he would buy both. So me and my mom got pedicures and manicures. Then went to the grocery store to get some of our food we need for Easter. It was so fun chatting with my mom and just spending the day together. It has been a while since we have been able to do that.
When I returned home my new shoes I ordered came. Just in time for Easter! I love them and they are super comfortable although they are not the best for carrying an infant car seat. Thankfully Joe would be with to help carry Liam.
Easter Sunday was a busy day for us. All of our family is local so we always share holidays, meaning two family’s and two meals in one day usually.
Our morning started with Liam “finding” his Easter basket. We kept it basic this year since Liam is so little and already had a lot of toys. He will be happy to try his new baby food.
I had to make a fruit salsa in the morning to bring to Easter on my side. It’s pretty easy and makes a big serving. I serve it with cinnamon sugar pita chips.
Next, we were off to Joe’s side for brunch. Joe’s parents host and his mom does such a great job. So much delicious food and great company. Brunch is always so yummy.
We enjoyed the time with family and Liam got lots of attention. Especially from his cousins. He also got to dig into his Easter basket which he thought was pretty fun. He thought it was even more fun to sit in his basket.
Then we were off to my side for a late lunch. Easter is always at my aunt and uncle’s house. Again, great food and company. And a super cute bunny fruit tray.
Liam got lots of attention again. He has so much fun with his cousins.
Liam even participated in an Easter egg hunt. His first ever. He wasn’t sure what was going on and it was a bit chilly but it was fun.
Although it was very busy, it was a very fun first Easter for Liam. We are so blessed to be able to spend the day with both of our families. We spent the remainder of our evening resting and relaxing.
