Easter morning skype with Daddy! We had skyped once last week, too, but before that it had been nearly 7 weeks, so it’s still very much a treat to see his face (however blurry it may be).
We spent the rest of the day with some lovely friends, who included us in their big Easter celebration with family and friends. It involved two full feasts and (literally) more children than I could count. Pippo and I both had a blast.
I made it using this tutorial here at M & A Times, which was very good. I followed it exactly (as in, I did not stray from her instructions) because I started on this project after I put Pippo to bed after the Easter Vigil (yes, I felt a little bit like a crazy lady at this point) and didn’t trust my tired self to think clearly on my own.
And you know what? That was a very good call on my part. Every change I was tempted to make would have been a bad idea. The pattern is good, and her instructions are clear. All you have to do is follow them blindly, and you will end up with a beautiful (lined!) toddler tie!
I snapped a few photos on our way out the door on Easter morning, but he had zero interest in standing still. He was much more interested in finding things and pointing them out to me than he was in looking at the camera.
In the long run, that’s probably a good thing.
Speaking of the best I can do, this is my best attempt at a photo of both of us (plus bubble soap, naturally) — camera on auto, using the self timer. I think it would have taken a third person, or a more cooperative baby, to get the top of my head in.
How was your Easter? (or I should say, how was your Easter Sunday, because of course we have much rejoicing ahead of us still!)
