Cora’s First Easter

Happy Easter from the DeSmidts!

This was our first Easter (and holiday) with baby Cora.  I am thankful we had this holiday to adjust to being a family of 4 before we took on trying to celebrate a holiday with ALL of our families.   Don’t get me wrong, it would have been wonderful to have seen everyone but I think I would have collapsed from exhaustion.

Bath Time
Doesn’t she look cute after her bath?

It sure takes longer to prepare a meal when you have to feed your baby every 2-3  hours.  Cora also decided to have major spit-up episodes this day resulting in three outfit changes.  But I am not complaining.  We have a beautiful baby girl and that is all I could ever wish for.

Bunny Slippers
Cora’s last outfit of the day – complete with bunny slippers!


For our meal we had; ham, deviled eggs, mashed potatoes, asparagus, fruit salad, and coconut cream cheesecake.  This was the first time I had tried out this recipe and the cheesecake turned out awesome!  Even though we are only two people, have no doubt that this dessert will be gone in a just a few short days.

The look you give your husband when he has finished his meal but you have yet to eat because your daughter got hungry.

Thank goodness for technology.  All of our families were able to Skype and see Cora for her first holiday.  We haven’t seen many of our relatives since Tara’s wedding last August.  We are looking forward to planning a Wisconsin weekend in June.
