Hoppin' Down the Bunny Trail

Dear Delilah,

This Easter weekend was action packed! Once again, I can't help but reflect on last year's holiday and marvel at how much you've grown and changed since then. This year, we kicked off the weekend with an overnight visit to Grandma Laurel and Grandpa Bruce. They spoiled you, as usual, with new toys and books. You stayed true to your tendency to save your big milestones for their house, and put more steps together than ever before, taking great strides with your walking. (As you can see, I'm staying true to my tendency to make groan-worthy puns.)

Saturday morning, we dyed Easter eggs, getting them into their colored baths as fast as we could before you could grab them, exclaim "Ball! Ball! Ball!" and throw them on the floor.

While you didn't quite get the concept, you were certainly a much more active participant than last year:

Speaking of last year, let's have a look at Easter Sunday, shall we?

This year at Grandma Bev's, it was nearly impossible to keep you still long enough to get photos of you!

With the leaps and bounds you've made this past year, it's hard to imagine what next year will be like. Perhaps you'll be more excited about coloring eggs than tossing them on the floor and marveling at the sound of them cracking. Maybe you'll be curious about the Easter Bunny and ready for an Easter Egg hunt! No matter what happens, I know that next year will be filled with as many smiles and happy memories as this year and last year have been.

  1. LOL we also had to explain the difference between a ball and an egg. Of course, it was an exercise in futility at best lol.

    The pictures from last year are hilarious!

  2. Isn't it amazing how quickly they grow away. Lovely when they start walking, although you then have to start really keeping an eye on them! My youngest granddaughter is 16 months now, and it's almost as if someone has wound her up. All of a sudden, she's off!! Make the most of these precious moments. Lovely photos of your little Delilah and I love her little outfit!

  3. What a great set of shots you took for this year's dyeing experience! Nicely done :)

    Looks and sounds like a fabulous weekend!

  4. @XLMIC-The credit for those shots goes to my mother-in-law! She knows her way around a camera, for sure! :)
