We hosted family at our home yesterday to celebrate Easter, and Iyla had an absolute BLAST. She could hardly contain herself- everywhere she turned there was another person she loved and adored! It was a happy, happy day.
Here are some photos from the festivities:
Sweet baby girl in her Easter dress
Iyla's Easter loot! A new chair and basket full of goodies
She especially loved the ladybug girl, a bouncy ball that lit up, the Etch a Sketch (such a PERFECT first 'drawing' item for this age!) and of course, the books
Iyla had awoken from her nap fussy, and I was worried we may have a repeat of the Infamous Easter of 2013. The second her Mimi and Grampy arrived, however, the sun came out in SPADES!
Happy girl, seen here giving her Mimi a "nosie."
Presents from Mimi and Grampy
She made sure Grampy had plenty of toys to choose from
Someone loves her Grampy!

FOUR generations! An amazing and beautiful thing.
