We all went to 7:30 mass this morning and Cecilia behaved quite well. She spent a fair amount of time simply moving her two books to the floor then back to the diaper bag, then the floor, etc. But she was well behaved overall.
While she napped this morning I cut up small chocolate eggs into 6ths and put the pieces as well as some cookies and cheese crackers into multicolored plastic eggs and “hid” 21 of them around the living room and dining room. When she woke from her nap we showed her where one was and at first she thought it was neat but didn’t get the idea. So, we opened it for her and she saw the chocolate. She licked it a few times to see if she would like it. After we showed her a few eggs she got the idea and began finding them herself. She would even collect the eggs into a pile before opening them and every time she found one she lit up with smiles and all sorts of noises. The cookies and crackers wound up in a pile with each piece of chocolate being devoured as she found them (can’t blame her there).
We got some wonderful pictures but want to get a few more at dinner tonight with some friends before we upload them. Will post them later.
