Holy cow its April! We’ve been so looking forward to Easter this year!!! Easter 2016 was Reagan’s first big holiday and my first chance to play the Easter Bunny. Obviously it goes without saying, she had no freakin’ clue what was going on. She was around 3 weeks old. BUT this year is soooooo different and she is starting to get the hang of this holiday thing!!! She is on the verge of walking and that means we can officially have an egg hunt and i’m not sure my heart will handle the cuteness.
The days are long with a toddler, but they are going so quickly at the same time because i’m pregnant. Baby prepping, spring cleaning, work, and trying to remain active have me fully extended. But i’m oh so happy!!! I wanted to get a head start on Reagan and Baby H’s Easter baskets and thought I would share our findings. Finding relatively inexpensive, small, age appropriate gifts is tough and i’m not one to buy a bunch of crap!!! If we purchase something, WE USE IT!!!! And I want to get my money’s worth from that purchase. AKA, something Reagan needs and will use.
We have always gone easy on the toys and i’m not going to fill her basket with sweets. She is a huge fan of her stuffed animals or “Lovies,” and we seem to go through pacifiers like its going out of style. I’m obsessed with this limited edition WubbaNub Cow pacifier. A reusable pair of bunny ears is always a festive addition and will get used over the years. We love to read to Reagan and are always looking to build up her library. Children’s books are the absolute best and I LOVE anything with a holiday theme. Its fun to mix up and exchange books from her library based on the season or holiday.
I am so excited for some new books and probably most looking forward to getting those crayons into Miss Reagan’s hands. I did a ton of research on safe crayons for a one year old. She is busy sticking everything in her mouth still and the HoneySticks are completely natural and the size is supposed to be great for new little artists. Pinterest says you can tape a piece of paper to the highchair and let them color away. We are going to give it a try and if it doesn’t go well, we’ll just wait another month or so and try again.
Last year I got her Easter Basket from World Market and I was so excited to learn that it is back again this year. This means that Baby H #2 will get the same basket and they can match for future years. Little details like that are super important to me and I actually go out of my way to think of them. The basket is the Mint Wire Farmhouse Basket and is also available in white and rustic metal. The mint was just calling to me last year and is the perfect Springy color.
Also totally random, but how CUTE are these Carrot Utensils for a toddler. These might have to make there way into our baskets this year as well. Reagan is absolutely fascinated by silverware and loves to practice using our forks to pick things up. Good practice for her hand eye coordination.
Happy April Friends! I hope this gives you a few ideas or inspiration for your little bunnies and their Easter baskets.
Also one little throwback from Easter last year. Our little bunny has grown up so much!!!!
