After lots of anticipation, Elin finally got to visit with the Easter bunny this year. She has been talking about the Easter bunny non-stop for a week now and I was getting afraid that he might not live up the hype.
She visited him last year when she was 10 months old and she did very well and smiled very well for her picture.
This year she paid very close attention to everyone in line in front of her and was watching them talk to the bunny and get their picture taken. When it was her turn, you could tell she was so excited. She kept saying, “Easter bunny soft” over and over and she petted his hand and she even looked up a few times and grabbed his nose. It was a little hard to get a good picture because she was just looking at his hands and face the whole time, but finally we got her to look at the camera and wave. I was scared that she was going to throw a fit when it was time to get off his lap, but she did very well.
After the visiting the bunny, she loved checking out the fountains and walking near the display where the bunny was seated to point out the flowers.
On our way out the door, she spotted a little bunny home decor piece at Von Maur. It became clear that she was not leaving the little guy behind, so we ended up purchasing him as a souvenir. He was not meant for a toddler so she promptly detached his ear during the car ride home, so we are working on mending him.
Elin is very much anticipating Easter this weekend.
