Easter 2010

Yesterday was Ava's first Easter. Of course she's too young to participate in the easter egg hunts and there was really no point in making her a basket this year, but I did dress her up in an adorable dress anyway.

The weather was nice minus all the gnats (the minute the weather gets remotely nice, the gnats come out. They ruin everything. And what is their purpose in life??). Our little family got ready and headed over to the Arango's (my brother-in-law's parents, they're my second family) for good ole' family fun. There were babies galore in that house. The boys put the burgers on the grill and the families went outside to partake in endless picture taking of the kiddos hunting for easter eggs. Some eggs had mula in them. Now, that's my kind of easter egg hunt.

Then we headed over to my parents' house and just hung out. I have found out how hard it is to get out of the house with a baby. It's not as easy as pick up and go anymore for Noah and me. It's packing a diaper bag, getting baby dressed, making sure it's not feeding time, remembering if we need to tote the stroller, making sure Paxx has been walked... The list goes on. It's exhausting. And we always forget something. But that's my life now and I'm happy to do it.

We finally got home to relax but before too long, Ava started getting fussy. She was turning beet red, kicking her legs, and crying. I guess she had gas and couldn't release it poor baby. I felt so bad for her. It took about 3 hours before she finally was so exhausted she fell asleep. Noah and I were exhausted, but luckily the minute she fell asleep she was out for about 4 hours. She got up to eat and be changed and was knocked out for another 4 hours. At least I got some sleep then, but it was a rough night to start out. I have never been more relieved to change a poopy diaper in my life. She's gone twice since last night so hope she feels better.

Her Sunday best


  1. Couple of things... A) She always looks like she's covering up her ears which is totally cute. B) I think she looks a LOT like Noah. And C) Can you use those gas drops yet? I'm not even going to pretend like I know what I'm talking about and I have no idea if there are age parameters for their use, I just know my sis uses them for Halley. You just put a few drops in her bottle. You can buy it over the counter and I know they've helped a lot with HJ.

  2. A) Yes, she loves the ear muffs position. I think she wants to be a thumb sucker too because she is constantly sucking on those mittens.

    B) Everyone over Easter said the same thing.

    C) Yes, I love those gas drops. I've been putting them in her bottle, it seems to help.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't be shy, leave a comment! I love reading them! :)
