I couldn’t let Otto’s first Easter come and go without a photo shoot (obviously). Especially once I saw this ADORABLE Easter bunny romper and the bow tie!
However, while the outfit is cute and it’s fun to have a special occasion or holiday to snap some pictures, I always like to take a moment and reflect on the Reason for the Season. Almost every day since O was conceived, my husband and I have prayed for Otto and his little heart. We pray that he would one day know his Father as we do, and put his faith in Him. And this wouldn’t be possible without the reason we celebrate Easter… the death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is He who created and formed Otto in the depths of my womb, it is He who guides our lives as we parent Otto, and it is He who we hope is reflected in our actions so that our son may be inspired to believe. Thank you, Jesus for your many gifts to us, but especially for this life-changing gift of Salvation.
May Otto’s session of pastels and bunnies and bow ties be sweet to your sight, but may its cuteness not distract from but rather add to the joy our Savior brings us.
