Baby Easter Bunny

I really wasn’t into Easter. Honestly I haven’t been that big into any of the Holidays during my son’s first year. I know he won’t remember them, and that basically it’s just a photo op. Don’t get me wrong- I love a good photo op (I’m a photographer- that’s kinda my thing!) but I didn’t feel any urgency or need to make a big fuss for his sake. I feel like that was true for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, but something changed with Easter.

Kelly is 10 months old now and gaining personality by the minute. My mom had bought him an adorable outfit that included a little bowtie- and he seemed to be in a decent mood, so I thought, hey lets try to take a couple of photos. I’ll admit I “faked” most of the basket- it was filled mostly with fruit, and balls (his favorite toy right now) and one egg filled with Trader Joe’s jelly beans. I plopped the basket down in the middle of my parents lawn, and put Kelly on the other end.

For the first time he was into it! Kelly crawled across the lawn eagerly and dug into the basket. He found the egg filled with jelly beans and started shaking it joyously, making delighted sequels at the sound it made. It was so much fun to watch. He’s officially enjoying holidays, but i’m the one who’s really getting the better deal. Watching his happiness is the best gift I could ever get. I guess that means i’m officially into the holidays now. People always say that kids make holidays more magical- and I’m starting to understand what they mean.

I included some of the “outtake” photos that I normally wouldn’t add to a blog- but I just couldn’t help myself. I love his “blue steel” face when he’s sucking on a jelly bean. Happy Easter!
