Meet the Sullivans: Owen's Easter Basket

Owen's Easter Basket

I feel like it was just a month ago that I was sharing Owen's First Easter Basket, but here I am sharing his second one. Last year he was a wee 3 month old and it was hard trying to find much to go in his basket. All he really wanted last year this time was to be held, drink milk from his momma and have a paci.

I'm linking this post up with the adorable and sweet Darci of The Good Life Blog for her Easter Basket Blog Hop. If you haven't checked out her blog yet you must! It's too cute and creative to miss. Also, make sure you browse through all the other cute baskets that have been linked up!

Children grow and change so quickly. This year he is SO different and likes so many things, which made filling his Easter basket this year SO much fun!

Most of what's in there is from Target, with a few exceptions: A big box of Crayola Washable Sidewalk Chalk, a Little Kids Spill-Free Bubble Tumbler, Jellycat Bashful Beige Medium Bunny (purchased from Francesca's), Tell Me About Easter Baby Blessings book (from The Reading Bug), a little Animal Adventures brown bunny, Lion Wash Mitt, Playtex Disney Easter Sippy Cup and a little squeaky rubber Easter sight word book.

I bought his Easter basket last year from Pottery barn Kids. It was under $20 + personalization. I'm going to order him a wicker basket + personalized liner when they go on sale this year after Easter, so next year he'll use this fabric one for Easter egg hunts.

Speaking of egg hunts... What do you put in a toddler's eggs for an Easter egg hunt? Certainly not chocolate eggs or jelly beans! Not unless you want them bouncing off the walls all morning and afternoon. I'm filling Owen's eggs with yogurt cremes, Goldfish crackers and puffs.

Keith, if you're reading this don't feel left out! I have a little Easter basket for you too!

Now we're off to the mall to see the Easter Bunny! I sure hope Owen is as happy to see him as he was last year. Wish me luck!

You're too sweet....thank you for the shout out and kind words! :) I love Mr. Owen's basket -- -and I'm sure he will too! Good job, momma! I agree, their 2nd Easter basket is so much more fun simply because you then now a few things they really and truly like and will be excited to see (an Elmo book and yogurt puffs for J!).

Good luck with Easter bunny photos! I'm dying to take J, but if his reaction when we attempted photos with Santa is any indication, it won't play out well! :( I'll be on the lookout for pics!! Hope y'all have fun and so glad you linked up!
