Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

Easter festivities kicked off yesterday with an indoor Easter egg hunt at "Granny's". Amelia insisted on opening each egg as she found it. As a result, her grand total for the hunt came to three eggs.
She didn't care - she had a blast! And inside the eggs she found stickers.

I put some on her face just for fun and she seemed to go along with the idea. (And I'm not sure how it migrated to her ear, but she spent a good deal of time with it there - foreshadowing of her teen years of piercing all parts of the ears, perhaps?

Last night I eagerly put out a huge rabbit that doubles as a floor pillow. Next to the rabbit I put a basket and a Dressy Bessy doll. This morning, she completely ignored them! Walked around them, four, maybe five times!! She was focused on her self-propelled mooing cow, but Daddy even moved that so it would run right into the rabbit. She retrieved the cow without even an acknowledgment to or of the rabbit. We had to get to church for the [indoor, thank you 15 degree weather] sunrise Service, so we gussied up and headed out. Daddy was playing as part of the service and I pointed him out toward the end. As soon as Amelia saw him, all she wanted was to be with him. I held her squirming self as long as I could and finally set her down during the closing prayer. *thump, thump, thump, thump* went her little feet down the side aisle as she ran to her daddy. It was SO cute!
Back home, we sat the bunny up and she finally took notice of him. This was after walking around him to finally discover the basket. She was delighted with the Peter Rabbit book (as you can see in the picture at the top of this post) and smalled stuffed bunny. But it was the grass that was the most fun! And she didn't try to eat any of it, she just loved getting it out and putting it back in. I think she really liked the texture of it. Later in the day she took great delight in throwing it up in the air and watching it land. The few extra minutes to pick it up once she was in bed was worth all the joy it brought her.

Her Easter outfit was made by her grandmother - for me when I was her age. I was so pleased that it fit her so well!
I found these gloves in Target's $1 bins and they fit her perfectly. She didn't wear them to church - I put them on her later in the day and she was fascinated! I was delighted at how well they fit and how neat she found them.
Despite being able to wear white shoes now that it's Easter, she still seemed to think she should wear black ones - as her fascination with Daddy's shoes continues!

And no little one's Easter is complete without all the goodies there are to eat! Ms. Linda from up the street came by with some eggs filled with graham crackers, goldfish and marshmallow bunnies (not peeps, though). This was Amelia's first taste of marshmallow and she couldn't get enough! She had trouble opening the eggs, so Linda would open it and she'd take one and a few seconds later asked for another, then another! We cut her off at three by putting the others elsewhere and having her think the third one she got out of the egg was the last. Oh, it's good to be smarter than an 18 month-old!

We hope that you all had a great Easter as well.
