Annabelle’s first Easter was wonderful! Not that she is going to remember any of it, but her Mommy, Daddy, Aunt Brittany, Coco and Pop had a great day celebrating with her. We took her to Easter service at my inlaw’s church and we were all pleasantly surprised that the only time she became fussy was when she wanted to nurse. The church has a Nursing Room, so I was able to feed her in a comfy rocking chair. She seemed to enjoy the singing and music during the service, and even started to fall asleep during one of the final songs. However, the applause after each of the Baptisms woke her up.
After the service, we went home for a delicious Easter dinner cooked by my mother-in-law. We had roasted pork loin, rosemary and garlic potatoes, asparagus, artichoke shrimp salad, and cheddar biscuits. Annabelle sat on her Aunt Brittany’s lap quite contentedly during dinner, so I was able to eat (hooray!), and had quite the time playing with her when we were finished. It was her first time meeting Aunt B and Annabelle thought she was so funny. Annabelle was showered with Easter gifts from my parents, her Coco and Pop, and us. Lots of toys, new stuffed friends, books, and even some clothes. The bestest part: the Easter bunny visited her Coco and Pop’s house – leaving his bunny tracks as evidence that he was there!
