I'm not one of those moms who gets all crazy with the Baby's First This and the Baby's First That. I don't know why, maybe I'm not all that sentimental. Nothing against parents who are. Anyway, I hadn't had huge expectations for the Baby's First Easter, but once again Kostyn's sweet disposition and excitement far exceeded my expectations.

I reveled in my role as Easter Bunny, "hiding" plastic eggs in obvious places around the living room and gently guiding Kostyn to them. And he LOVED finding them, shaking them, opening them and eating the few Cheerios of Puffs hidden inside. The kid was a riot.

Unfortunately, an extra-early, overstimulating morning led to KO conking out, fully dressed, a half-hour before church. So Chris and Kostyn ended up staying home and I brought my parents to the Easter service at our church. All in all, though, it was a great holiday.

Coloring eggs...





It took him no time at all to figure out how to open the plastic eggs to get the treasure inside!



He's looking refreshed after his morning nap. I, as usual, just look tired. But happy!



With Grammy and Pop-Pops...



Kostyn's first Easter basket. The red truck is for KO. The dark chocolate Easter bunny is for mommy.

What a great idea for his first Easter! Now I feel totally lame for just kind of hanging out all day wishing there was something I could do for my son's first Easter. Man! :) Glad you had a lovely day!

I love that second photo of Kostyn holding the egg. It's been a while since I've seen photos of those big beautiful eyes, and you have such a pure smile on your face. Glad you had a great Easter!

Is it me, or has he sprouted up recently? He looks a lot older to me all of the sudden...

I have to admit that Nicky didn't do too many Easter activities before this year. But he loved painting eggs this weekend and had a grand old time at Pop-Pop's outdoor egg hunt. Only problem came when I ate one of the painted eggs in front of him. He threw a complete fit. I guess I ruined his masterpiece!

Our family Easter egg hunt (which continues to this day - yes, my mom still hides chocolate eggs) was more fun to me than even Christmas. I agree, Kim. KO looks tall!!
