Mother’s Day

Well, my very first Mother’s Day is coming to a close. Alex was very well behaved for all but the hour and a half I spent trying to get him down for his afternoon nap only to wake up ten minutes later. Fortunately bed time was as smooth as I could have ever asked for, with the exception of him putting himself to sleep, of course.

On Thursday, my Mother brought me a Mother’s Day balloon, which Alex adored:

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mama Day

Day 9

There is nothing like seeing a smile on your child’s face to make Mother’s Day perfect!

I received a cute bag full of travel size lotions and body washes, and Zach got me Juno and Sweeney Todd, both movies that I absolutely adore. We watched Juno last night laying in bed, and, like any movie that has anything to do with having a baby, I teared up. Literally, any movie. Honestly, I could start crying during a commercial about giving birth if I didn’t hold myself back. What has Motherhood done to me? I digress…

The wine my Mom brought over on Saturday night was not only very good, but also came in an awesome bottle (in fact, I’m pretty sure that is the reason she bought it!):

Day 8

And, like I mentioned before, Alex doesn’t need real toys. He loves a good water bottle:

  1. I got a balloon for Mother’s Day, too, but I suspect that when Alexis picked it out, she was really thinking about herself. She refused to give it to me yesterday, proving my theory.

    Happy (belated) Mom’s Day!

  2. Happy 1st Mother’s Day! My youngest was born Aug.24, 07, but he is tiny compared to Alex!

    Glad you had a great day.
