I made Maeve a second Smock Dress, this one in cotton and without sleeves for summer (the first was long sleeved and made from flannel). The fabric I used was from what I already owned. It's leftovers from a dress I made for Greta. I love this pattern. It feels so classic and sweet. I like the princess seams and big pockets. It's a simple dress, but more interesting than others. And, it comes together pretty easily!

We love having friends in the neighborhood!

Some new favorite photos of my Maeve with her special thing, her baby. Right now, Maeve is in a phase of undressing herself and her baby in bed when she's supposed to be sleeping, which you know, when she's supposed to be sleeping, it's definitely annoying. The baby doll was a gift for her first birthday. You just never know what kids are going to attach to and honestly, for a long time we doubted that she would attach to anything (besides nursing). But Maeve loves her baby (and her blanket) a lot. So sweet.

Some photos from a little neighborhood egg hunt at the local park. I like egg hunts and I don't. I like how cute my 2 year old is finding eggs and putting them in her bucket. I don't like the competition and the expectations that don't line up. Tempted to do our own egg hunt next year with friends? But I also love going to this one and seeing friends!

Our Easter tradition is to put together a Scavenger Hunt for our girls and at the end they find a little parcel of prizes. We keep it small; this year's treats included candy and a t-shirt. Maeve had a little less candy and some Sesame Street figurines in her basket. Our girls are so thrilled by this tradition and you can see it in their smiles. It's fun!
