Last Minute Baby and Toddler Easter Basket Gift Ideas

Happy Holy Week everyone! Is it just me or did Easter happen, like, waaay early this year? It’s a little overwhelming for me when I think about how fast in general this year is going. It’s going to be April soon! WHAT!?

Anyways, let’s get on to the reason why you all are here…last minute Easter basket ideas! I have put together 2 Easter baskets this year: one for a 3 year old toddler girl and one for a 1 year old baby girl. Easter was actually the first holiday we celebrated last year after coming home from the hospital with Miss Blu. This is great news for me this year because I already had her basket and liner purchased! Ah, first world problems.

A very Pandemic Pink Rainbow First Birthday

Um…hi

Wow, I mean it’s been months since we’ve “spoken”, right? I have to say, this whole pandemic thing shook me. Like, shook me to my core. And unfortunately my poor little blog suffered. I miss this. I missed you all. Now that we can see “normal life” on the horizon, I feel better about jumping back in. Don’t forget that if I’m ever scarce in presence here on the Sykes Fam blog then you can always find me over on Instagram or on YouTube.

My littlest turned one a weekish ago and we celebrated a very pandemic first birthday. Can you even believe that! It was just us with a couple really close family members and we spent the day together celebrating Miss Blu. If you’re new around here you may not know that I don’t share my children’s faces online. I’m actually considering removing all physical and verbal mention of them on my social media but that’s another story for a different day. For now, please enjoy this sweet photo of her high-chair set up.
