Bunnies, Baskets and Books

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.


  1. I don't know which picture I like more!! :-)

  2. Happy Easter! Sounds like you had a good one. The Bean is too cute in his bunny ears.

    We love Harry the Dirty Dog too. Have you read No Roses for Harry? That was Kim's favourite when she was a kid, so of course we have it and read it frequently. :)

  3. Bean in Bunny Ears is so cute! Looks like he had a lovely holiday. I am with An Offering of Love...cannot decide which picture I like more, Bean is completely adorable, but I get giddy every time I see a positive HPT :)

  4. This is reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally positive!! :-))))
    Congratulations and thanks for sharing! Exciting!

  5. Cute pictures. So I take it you have a kazillion books? LOL. I know you're a teacher and teachers tend to be all about the books. My friend has a ton because she can get free ones through scholastic, etc.

    So excited about your BFP. Congrats again. :)

  6. Congrats on the BFP! How exciting!

  7. Congrats! That's fantastic news! What a great Christmas prezzie. The Bean looks adorable with the bunny ears, btw :)

  8. Thanks for the congratulations on the positive test everyone. We're so happy about it.

    @Shannon. I love all the Harry books --I've only found the first one in board book though. We're still avoiding paper pages with The Bean as he's pretty rough on books.

    @Stacey, more like a bajillion books. ;) I still have to get to that update...
