I had a wonderful Mother's Day. It was a pretty normal weekend for us really. Work, a night at home (always nice with our schedule), church, etc. Although starting off the weekend Friday morning with the sonogram was the best mother's day gift ever! :) And I did go out and buy my first "girl" purchase: little bright pink suede booties! I had not bought one girl thing and wouldn't even let myself look because I was sure it was another boy, but Friday afternoon I went in Marshall's and walked straight to the baby girl section! :)
Daniel & Ryder made me feel super special. Saturday night Daniel came in with Ryder carrying roses! He was smiling & smelling of them. And I've been promised a new body pillow to get me and baby through this summer with ease. :) Yesterday we had a good morning at church, a yummy lunch with friends (with a happy, well-behaved baby through it all), a husband to work in the yard while I napped in the afternoon & a snickers sonic blast to end the night on the couch! :)
Even though we didn't get to be with our mothers & grandmothers yesterday I felt so blessed to celebrate mother's day with my sweet husband, sweet baby boy, & sweet baby girl in my tummy! I thought back to last year - it was Ryder's first trip home. He was 5 weeks old and we got to introduce him to the whole family. Never did I imagine a year later I'd be celebrating with another little one growing inside of me! ha! I feel like now (only a year into motherhood) I can appreciate all of our mothers & grandmothers SO much more than ever before! So to all of you in our lives... we love you more than we could possibly say & appreciate everything you have done & still do for us!
Happy Mother's Day to my "mothers" and all the mothering friends around me! Love to you all...
