Happy Belated Mothers' Day!

I had the best Mothers' Day to date. Last year, I'm not gonna lie, wasn't the best. Only because the weather was super crappy and I was in the first trimester of my pregnancy with Lizard. So I was still throwing up in the morning and was just, in general, not feeling the greatest. This year, however, was perfect. Husband works Wednesdays to Sundays, but, he was

home by 9:30 in the morning and was able to go to brunch with us and my family. So that was a very special treat. And before he got home the girls and I played and had a really great morning, just the three of us. Brunch was a lot of fun as well. I had a lot of laughs with my sisters and their husbands as well as my parents, aunts, uncle, and grandparents. I'm so blessed to have all of them. And later in the evening we went over to my in-laws and had a cookout with them and my sisters-in-law and their families. Noodle ran all over with her cousins and had an absolute blast! When we finally made it back home we had a nice night, just the four of us, before the girls went to bed. I don't know what I did to deserve such a wonderful family, but, I'm glad I did it :) I'm so incredibly blessed. I hope everyone elses Mothers' Day was just as great and wonderful.

On a side note, Lizard had her six month check-up this morning and is doing great. She is an even 27" long (yikes) and weighs 16 lbs. 3.2 oz. What a healthy girl! And her first tooth has made it's arrival with the one next to it soon to follow.


  1. I'm so glad you had a good day. You certainly made mine wonderful. I'm also glad that things went well at the doctor. I was a little off on my weight guess. I'm so excited about the first tooth. I'll have to come check it out.

  2. Happy belated Mother's Day! Glad you had a wonderful day :) You have a beautiful family!

  3. You have a beautiful family. I can't get over how your older daughter looks exactly like your mom! Lizard looks like the Gerber baby! Glad your MD was a fun time. It is so nice to see the family unit together like yours is. I love to see all the generations and everyone coming together. I know your mom was thrilled with her charm bracelet, which I can't wait to see.

  4. Lizard's first tooth! Yay!!!

    And, no worries about the pictures. They look beautiful on your page and you did a great job!

  5. Sounds like you had a great day. Lucky to have so much family so close. It is funny how Mother's Day really can make you feel lucky. I know I am.
