On Friday, The Bean put on his bunny ears for a visit with my cousin's family and my Nana. They didn't last long, but he made a cute little rabbit.
The Easter bunny had left a Fisher Price Teapot at my cousin's house for The Bean. He's been playing with it constantly for the past two days. Whenever it "sings" he dances. I'd venture to say it's been a big hit. Nana came over with miniature copy of Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Benjamin Bunny and a Beatrix Potter piggy bank for him.
On Saturday we met up with my sister (who is due today!) for some lunch. The Easter Bunny had left some treats for The Bean with her too! A beautiful wooden maraca and the book Marshmallow which is the story of a little bunny who comes to live with a cat. I recognized it, but it's not a book that I was really familiar with. Both Jen and I read it this morning and agree that it's a sweet story.
And of course, there is a basket here for The Bean. It has the beeswax crayons and playsilk I mentioned in yesterday's post as well as two new board books I am a Bunny (a classic) and Harry the Dirty Dog (one of my favourites) and some plastic eggs filled with candied ginger --one of The Bean's favourite treats.
This afternoon we went over to my mom's house. The Bean did an Easter egg hunt there, the eggs were "hidden" in plain sight and he didn't really understand what he was supposed to do with them, but he played along. There was also a basket there for him, this one containing chocolate-covered ginger. The Easter bunny knows our boy well I guess. ;)
I'd say The Bean's second Easter was a big success. I love how he interacts with people and his environment so much now. It's just amazing to see the changes that the past year has brought.
I'll try to post a few photos from at my mom's tomorrow and maybe also do a little spring book/Easter book update. I wanted to do one today, but we got home too late to do a photo.
One more note: I took another HPT yesterday morning. The results are a lot more clear than the photo I posted on Friday, so I thought I'd share another photo.
According to online calculators I'm already four weeks pregnant (I had forgotten how that worked) and the baby is due around December 16th.
