Baby’s First Easter

DSC_1966e
Every Easter is better with a tutu, right?!  Well, this Easter was certainly more exciting with a baby in tow.  Actually, I’m pretty sure every holiday will be more fun and magical because of Charlotte.
We had a wonderful Easter.  Derek worked but Charlie and I drove up to my Mom’s, who was hosting everybody.  This was the first time that everybody from my step dad’s side of the family was meeting Charlie so that is always fun!  She was so incredibly good and played the day away!

We also tried out the high chair for the first time.  WORLD OF DIFFERENCE!  Charlie ate like a champ.  Before, we thought she would never like solid foods.  After one time in the high chair, she eats everything!  We put together our high chair the very next day just to see if it was a fluke but sure enough, once she was placed in the chair, she opened her mouth for her food!  Amazing!

Since Derek missed out on Easter, we had a mini photo shoot when we all got home together!
