its time for another first holiday with my baby!
easter is my favorite holiday. hands down.
i remember more easters as a kid than any other holiday, i'm not sure why?!
my grandma gives all the kids an easter basket until we get married. then i passed the chore on to isaiah ;) i remember the first easter basket he gave me. i was hooked.
& then theres last year. last year easter was on march 31st. the day before my birthday. we spent it up north in the hospital with my grandpa. it was not a fun way to spend easter. but i'm forever thankful that i spent it the way i did. ill never forget the moment that isaiah went to the bathroom and i took the chance to crawl up on the hospital bed with my grandpa for some snuggles. i had my grandpa, my husband and a baby dancing in my belly. that was the last time i got to talk with crapa. two weeks later, he went to heaven.
its hard spending first holidays without someone near and dear to your heart. but having first holidays as a new parent helps with that. something fierce.
this year! i tried telling isaiah we needed a special easter basket for crue but he wasn't exactly having it. i kept hearing "why can't we buy one from target?!" - becauuuuuse. "i don't wanna! he needs his ownnnnn". the battle went on and on.`
it wasn't until my mom came to town that SHE told us he needs an easter basket because its just like needing a stocking on christmas! genius. and of course, isaiah obliged :)
i am OBSESSED with his easter basket. i love that i can use it for a few different reasons, and its collapsable! isaiah loves it too. he told me i did good. now i want a matching one for me. for now, ill settle with my target basket ;) while secretly hoping that next time i order an easter basket, it'll be one for me + baby number 2. one can hope, right?!
already excited for easter next year!
linking up with sarah for the 2014 easter basket hop!
