Easter

Just a sweet shot of snuggling with Daddy.
We had a lovely Easter, despite the location.  The Easter Bunny visited sometime in the night, so we woke up to a fancy basket full of goodies for Scarlett.  We had lots of visitors - Daddy came after work, plus grandmas, grandpa, aunties and uncles, even a great grandma!

Scarlett was a bit drowsy, but we did get a picture of her Easter dress.  I bought it just in case we made it out in time, but had some fun hospital dress-up anyway.  The nurses were so excited - they  clapped and oohed and aaahed as soon as they saw her.  

I cut her new NG tape into a bunny.  It's my kindergarten teacher-ness.

Hope everyone had a nice day.  Tomorrow we start Cycle 3 of chemo.

LOVE this post- she is so adorable in her Easter dress! I admire you for making the holiday as festive and cheerful as possible. Scarlett has a lot of challenges to face, but she also has a lot of blessings- and having such a dedicated and loving mother is definitely one of those blessings. Thanks for sharing. :)

We were in the hospital too & they gave Morgan gifts, I was so surprised but thought it was great. We are making Peyton wait for her basket until we can all be together. Which was pretty depressing, but thank god for that whole not remembering what happens to you when you're little.
Hope this is a smooth treatment for you, go Scarlett!

For the record- the first thing I notice about Scarlett is her smile. I only saw the NG when I looked up. I know you guys were upset about that so when I realized that I didn't see the NG first I HAD to tell you!!! Happy Easter to the baby who made me a better mommy! I will never be able to repay you sweet girl.

Jenna Cornelius said...

She is so adorable! Sorry you had to spend Easter in the hospital, but it seems like it was still a pretty good day. I took a picture of my daughter in bunny ears too. Have to take those kinds of pictures now, cause as they get older we won't be able to do that as easily.
