This coming Sunday will be my baby’s first Easter and that means decisions for my husband and I. Whose family will we visit for Easter dinner and whose church service should we attend to show off the baby in her adorable Easter dress. Also how much money do we want to spend on our baby’s first Easter? I am very excited!
Shopping for Baby:
It is hard not to go spend crazy for my baby’s first Easter because I want to buy all kinds of cute clothes, toys, and candy. She already has an adorable Easter dress given to us from her Grandmother with cute little baby sandals. We recently went shopping with our little girl and tried out a few hats (shopping for a baby girl is so much fun– I loved it). One in particular was extremely cute on her and we are considering going back to the store this weekend to buy it. I am using the excuse that she needs this new hat not only for Easter but also to help mommy in the garden this summer.
Since I am passing down my old Easter basket from my childhood, we will not need to buy one for our baby’s first Easter. Hopefully, it will stay intact as an heirloom throughout her childhood also. I am planning to buy a few Easter eggs that I can fill with the Gerber yogurt melts that she loves so much and maybe I can let her indulge on a few marshmallow peeps too. Along with those items, I will probably get a cute little Easter book to place in her basket, and that will be all. So, I am not going to break the bank for Easter, instead it will be small and simple.
Now that Easter is almost here, my husband and I really have to decide on our Easter plans. So, with only a little arguing we were finally able to come to an agreement on the plan of action for this coming Sunday. We will definitely not be going to any sunrise services because my husband works late at night and is not someone you want to cross early in the morning. We are taking the baby to our own church for the Easter morning service but after lunch, we are all heading over to my parents’ house for Easter dinner.
My mother wants to take pictures of our baby in her Easter dress with their baby lamb that was born a few weeks ago. Traveling on Easter with a baby may not be a lot of fun, but spending time with family for holidays and special occasions make the annoying trip worth it.
Are you planning to celebrate Easter with your children? How did you make your baby’s first Easter memorable for everyone?
