This year was my first Mother's Day (well, the first Mother's Day with an actual baby outside of the body). It was a good one. It was a busy one. I got to sleep in a little bit. Husband came in with Baby and two big, red bags. Both wished me a Happy Mother's Day. Baby and Husband bought me a gift certificate and robe from Elizabeth Arden's Red Door Spa. I can't wait to spend my day there!
After I woke up and Baby went down for her morning nap, we got ready to meet my parents, Sister, Brother-in-Law, Nephew and Brother-in-Law's father for lunch. We had a nice lunch during which Nephew and I took a walk around the mall. He helped me pick out some nice outfits for Baby as she has outgrown much of what she owns. We drove home. I took a brief nap in the car and at home before we turned around and went to Husband's parents' house.
We had a big dinner with the inlaws, Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law. It was a good night. Baby was overly tired and fought the sleep until the very end, but she finally surrendered. We expect she'll sleep well tonight after her big day.
It was a great Mother's Day. It's so amazing to look down into that little face and see it light up with a smile that's just for you and just think, "Look, we did that!"
