Friday night we went to a friend's house for an Easter egg hunt and dinner and there was even a surprise visit from the EB!  Claire enjoyed picking up eggs and Max spent his time jumping on the big trampoline.

Here comes Peter Cottontail!
Bear was not happy to see the EB!

Friday night was also the last night with their beloved boppy.

Saturday night went perfect.  Max fussed for about 10 minutes, then was out!  Sunday was a different story.  Max did not nap at all and Claire took a very short one.  Each time we got in the car or getting ready for nap they would ask for their boppy.  We had to remind them each time that they gave them to the EB.  Last night was heavy tears for about 30 min - same for today's nap.  It will take some time for them to learn to soothe themselves without their boppy.  It's hard to hear.  I would love to be able to give it to them but know we can't :( It's just hard hearing them cry that hard and miss something so much!

Handsome Buds!
We also got to spend some time with my Brother and his family.  Originally, my parents were going to head to VA to see them, but my Dad's back went out and couldn't travel.  It is always great to see them and see how much my nieces have grown.  Wish we could see them more often.

  1. They look adorable all dressed up for Easter. Good for you sticking with the no paci's. I think that's the hardest part, not caving as parents. I hope each day gets a little easier for all of you, and it will be a distant memory soon.
