Baby with Easter bunny ears

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. Of course I love Christmas, but there’s just something about a Spring holiday. It’s always so much fun to dye eggs, go on Easter egg hunts, and look through an easter basket filled with goodies.

Evelyn was about 10 months old for her very first Easter. I loved that age, because she was starting to become really fun and interactive. It was a really fun stage—she was still a little baby but with so much personality and not too much toddler sass.

Since I love all things Easter, of course I was excited to put together her first Easter basket.

I wanted to get things she would love as well as useful things for me/her. I hate having useless junk so I made sure to only put items in her basket that we would actually use.
