Rice, Rice, Baby

Who got their first taste of rice cereal on Easter Sunday?
Little man! Considering it was his first time eating with a spoon, he took to it all like a natural. I mixed 2 tablespoons of breast-milk with 1 tablespoon of cereal and there was very little left over.
And not too much on his bib either. The kids both enjoyed their Easter baskets. The Take the Cake game you see in Cate's is awesome! Totally worth it if you have a kid 3 years old or older. My cupcake-lovin' sweet girl thinks it's the best thing ever.
We spent our Easter Sunday enjoying a great service at church in which a neuro-scientist and former agnostic shared how he came to believe in the resurrection, the cornerstone of Christian salvation. Cate and Brennan looked as adorable as ever in their Easter outfits. We came home, took a nap, snacked on some Easter candy, and then headed out to Eric's stepdad's sister's house. Some of his family had never seen Brennan before. We got one family picture (like my new mom-haircut? I don't even need to use a brush when I blow it dry).
Brennan loved on his new teething toy all day. He knew just what to do with it. We have to help him get a grip on it (he's almost there with the whole knowing-he-has-hands thing). But once he's got it in his hands, he brings it right to his mouth.

We also brought this home from our Easter celebration:
Eric's stepdad's father is a talented woodworker and made this babydoll cradle for Cate. It's the perfect sleeping spot for her Bitty Baby, Baby Annie.

It was a Happy Easter indeed.
