It happens in a flash. Your little one is terrified of the furry costumed Easter Bunny, making for a tear-filled holiday photo op.

But a year (or two) goes by, and somehow the magic of the rabbit makes for smiles all around. (Unless, it's a reverse situation where baby loves the bunny but gets older and wiser and says, 'No thanks.')

Thanks to all the TODAY.com readers who shared their 'then' and 'now' Easter photos. We are glad to see most of your kids have bought into the season's most popular bunny.
