Hadley celebrated her first Easter at 6 months old. Hadley is definitely too young to understand Easter egg hunts and oven tombstone rolls, but I'm here to tell you, that girl knows how to open Easter baskets!
Perhaps it's because her great-grandparents, her Grammy, and her Great Aunt Diane and Aunt Amy all brought her baskets to open...she clearly had some practice by the time Easter Sunday actually rolled around!
Technically, Aunt Diane and Aunt Amy brought Hadley a half-birthday gift since she turned 6 months old the day they visited (the day before Easter.). Wasn't that so thoughtful?! I was so touched that people love her enough to celebrate her half-birthday! (Of course they love her enough, she's pretty incredible!)
Her Easter basket this year was a "summer" theme. She got quite a few bathing suits, a couple sun hats, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hooded pool towel (that I made! Crazy!), and some good reads. Seeing her get so excited about her gifts was so much fun!
Then we all got ready for Easter Sunday. I can't even describe to you how adorable this child was in her smocked Easter dress.
We didn't travel for Easter or have any special lunch planned (We went to Moe's. Mexican on Easter. It worked, ha!), and we came home and took Marley on an Easter walk. It was the perfect first Easter as a family of three!
