A very happy Mother's Day

November 23, 2010
Yesterday was such a special day...my first Mother's Day with Addie.  We celebrated last year because I truly believe that you become a mom the minute you get pregnant - its funny how life changes with 2 pink lines.  All of the sudden your concerned with everything you put in your body, the air you breathe, and how much exercise your getting because your concerned with "what it might do the baby."  But...this year was different because Addie was here and I feel so lucky to be her momma.  She's such an amazing little girl and the past seven months have been pure bliss.

We celebrated with brunch with my mom and dad and then spent the rest of the day as a family - going to Trader Joes, Lowes, and Starbucks (the usual weekend routine).  The morning started off dreary but by the afternoon the sun was out - the day was beautiful.  Thank you so much to everyone that helped make it special (and yes, that includes all of my blog friends:))  I hope everyone else had a wonderful day too!!!

First off, your daughter is too cute! Second, I look at your pics and I feel like we're old friends. How corny does that sound? LOL! BTW - your title phrase totally rhymes. Did you mean to do that? Cute! :)
