mother's day, sick baby, golf, more baby, dancing and surprises

  • Last year on Mother's Day I felt so special. I was carrying our child inside of me and I thought, "it can't get much better than this!"-To be pregnant ON mother's day...I mean you wouldn't think it could get more "mother" than that. It was pretty special BUT on Sunday I was able to see our child. This wonderful gift that God gave us. I am finally a mother and there isn't ANYTHING like it. He melts my heart daily. I can not thank Him enough for giving me this special gift 7 short months ago. I also thank my mother for teaching me to mother our child. She's always the first person that I call when I need to know "what to do". I also thank my mother-in-law b/c without her I would have such a handsome hubby/baby daddy that buys me nice things on special days. (BAHAHA just kidding about that last part..not really) Sunday morning I woke up to a sweet little boy who shows me unconditional love and loves his mama! He surprised me with a gift certificate for a massage. His Daddy said that he told him he was tired of hearing about me whining. We went to church where I got to stand when they recognized all of the mothers. I can remember Mother's Day as a little girl and thinking "I can't wait to do that! Wonder if I'll ever get the youngest/oldest mother flowers one day??" Well it came down to two people for the youngest mother, me and another girl and I didn't get it. boooo But I did get a marker board for the fridge with some beautiful scripture on it. Husband took mother dearest, D and myself to a fabulous lunch (Duke/my dad was out of town). When we got home babylove and I took a 2 hour nap then headed to Trey's for supper. It was such a nice day. Normally on Sundays I'm busy trying to straighten up, get laundry done and put away, catch up on my shows (okay that's more like fun but I have to "clean" up the dvr for the week), cut and organize coupons and get my lists together. It was so nice to do nothing! I am so sad to say that I didn't get a pic with my sweet boy on my first mother's day!
  • D came down with quite a cold. Or what I thought was a cold which consists of green snot and pulling of the ear. You got it, my sweet baby has his first ear infection :( A few people have told us that they sometime come with teething. I just hope we nip it in the bud and don't see another one for years to come.
  • This weekend is the 4th annual memorial golf tournament for our dear friend. Every year the team that I am on has one the woman's division. Now, I am by no means a golfer. I just pick a good team :) However, I think husband and I may go hit some range balls to practice. These two pics are taken from the last two years. I can't seem to find one from the first year.
  • Our dear friends, Tripp and Stacey, will be admitted bright and early in the morning to have their sweet no name baby girl! (We think her name is going to be Emersyn but they haven't decided 100%) Please keep Stacey and sweet baby girl in your prayers. Baby girl is breech so they are doing a C-Section and her Mama is nervous. I can't wait to go see them on my lunch break tomorrow!!!
  • I started the 30 day shred this morning. (I mentioned last week that I purchsed this Jillan Micheals dvd on amazon..well it came in the mail yesterday) I'm pretty sure I'm going to be sore tomorrow. Hopefully I can keep it up and look like the gals in the video..funny, huh?
  • Tonight our niece, Payton, has her dance recital. Hopefully I'll get a picture with D and his dancin' cuz.
  • Can you believe it, I finally won something!! I was so excited to see this post on Romance In a Glance. Thanks bunches, you really made my day!
  • Lastly, you may have remembered me mentioning that Grandma (my mom) got a new ride. Well a certain special 15 year old is getting surprised with my mom's bug today!! While my mom is super sad to see it go I know that our niece (BJ's sister's child) is going to be beyond excited when she gets home from school today and sees it sitting in the driveway!
