We celebrated Easter in Boerne this year. Michael and I decided that Easter Sunday would be the perfect time to take Crockett to church for the first time. Ha. Although it was great to be back at Oak Hills, it might have been a better idea to live stream at home.
Crockett's mommy woke him up to get all dressed up and she paid for it. Yes, he looked PRECIOUS in his Easter outfit (thanks Mama C) but I learned a huge lesson... NEVER EVER EVER EVER wake a sleeping baby.
He did great for the first 30 minutes but just as Max began to preach Crockett started to fuss. I made a rookie mistake and ran out with Crockett and NO diaper bag. Thankfully I had a paci but diapers and bottle were neatly packed in the diaper bag on the floor under my chair. Thankfully a sweet usher sensed my panic after about 10 minutes and offered to go in and get the bag!
After church we ate lunch at home. Thankfully I had cooked a pot roast over night so I was able to tend to Crockett. He went down for a nap and slept for 4 hours... after filling our bellies, Michael and I also caught a few zzzz...
4 hour nap should make up for waking Crockett up right? Not exactly. But we headed to the Srp's for the evening.
Aunt Laura has THE TOUCH. She was able to calm the little mister down... he slept in her arms for a good 30 minutes!
Sitting outside watching his older cousins hunt Easter eggs. Cousin Hannah shared a fish sticker with him... so sweet! It calmed Crockett down for a few minutes.
Quick... take a family picture while he isn't screaming!
Crockett's dark hair is one of my favorite things because it was such a surprise! It's beginning to thin and I wanted to remember what it looked like.
Hey... let's take a cousin picture! It went surprisingly well. Cousin Eli did an EXCELLENT job holding Crockett!
Eli Srp, Crockett Srp, Cullen Srp, Hailey Yost, & Hannah Yost
Then it was time for a sibling picture... can you believe we were able to get all the babies to sit still again!?!?! Impressive!

Crockett spent the rest of the evening crying... so no more pictures...
Except this precious one of his Pa calming him down. In fact he was able to get some really cute smiles and coos out of him!
In the end, we were exhausted but Jesus is Risen... He is Risen indeed!
Christian Srp will never ever wake a sleeping baby... no matter how cute the outfit.
