Happy Late Easter from Ella and Little Nutbrown Hare.
So i am a little behind the times right now as far as posting goes... Ella is now two months old and goes in for her immunization shots tomorrow :S - I don't think I am ready for that -
Our Easter went well - we stayed over at Peter's parents the night before and that morning I made a Hungarian dish for brunch. After we got back from church we had our Passover meal which I thought was delicious, I am not so sure the pickier eaters thought the same...
I don't think I would make the Brisket with 36 cloves of garlic, it wasn't my favorite. The salad we created was amazing though! Oh and the Black Bean Hummus was delish!
What did you and your family do for Easter/Passover? Any fun traditions that you enjoy?
One tradition that my mom started years ago was that she would make my sister and I Easter dresses. We would wear them to church on Easter Sunday and although I was (and still am) very against matching, I loved having those homemade dresses.
So to carry on the tradition, I took up the suit of Mom and made Ella an adorable Easter dress! I found this pattern online (for FREE) and it worked beautifully! This lady's dress turned out a bit nicer but hey, she made up the pattern! My only qualm with this dress was that I had to make my own bias tape and that was kind of a pain (especially since I sewed it on the wrong way...) I also made this adorable little headband to match!
Oh it is so fun to have a girl. I am not too sure what I would have done with a boy... I mean no dresses, headbands and adorable little shoes and tights! - By the way, those polka dot tights were purchased from Old Navy but they were on clearance so I'm not sure they are still there -
And as you can tell from the pictures above, Ella is fully smiling now and cooing lots and lots. It is SO much fun now to just sit and "talk" with her. She is such a chatty cathy! He he... I think she is on the verge of giggling any day now! I am such a lucky mom - she is an AMAZING baby. She has already started sleeping through the night (at least 6 hrs at a time!) She has never had a problem sleeping really, like 2 or 3 nights her entire life has she woken up irregularly. She is eating TONS and TONS too - good thing mom has lots of good milk! We will se how much she weighs tomorrow (I am guessing over 11 lbs.)
I will do better in keeping things up. I am in the middle of a new blog conception... I will ask your opinion once I get things a little more solidified.
