Happy Mother’s Day!

Standard

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you mothers or soon to be mothers. Today is a very special day for me. I am so excited about my first Mother’s Day! In my last post I talked a little about why I love being a mom. But, I read a friend’s blog, and I was inspired to write more. On September 7, 2009, I became a mom. My beautiful baby girl, was born. When she was born, I remember thinking that I just helped create the most beautiful baby that this world has ever seen. She was 8 pounds 0 oz of perfection! I loved her when she was in my belly, but nothing could have prepared me for the love I felt when I saw her for the first time.  Right after they said, “It’s a girl!” they had to rush her away from me. When my water broke, there was meconium in it. They had to make sure she was alright, so I didn’t see her right after she was born. But, after she was alright, the pediatrician held her up and I got to see her. I immediately started crying. I got to see that beautiful baby I carried in my belly for 9 months. I got to see that baby who saved my life! The first thing I noticed is that she had her daddy’s eyes. Then I watched Jared hold her for the first time. That was precious. Then he handed her to me. She was more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed she would be. I can’t even tell you the amount of times I kissed her and told her I loved her. It was the best moment in my life!

I love this girl

Fast forward 8 months. Now, my sweet girl is 20 pounds of perfection. I love her personality. I love listening to her when she talks to herself when she wakes up in the morning. I love when I get home from work, she is so excited to see me. I love watching her with her daddy, it just melts my heart. I love her very chubby thighs, I just could eat ’em up!   I just love every inch inside and out of my girl.

Also, as a mommy I have discovered some pretty cool things. For all you mommies out there, I am going to post a list of my favorite websites. Some of them are shopping sites (of course), but others have a lot of cool info.

I Love Being a Mom!

Standard

I love being a mom! It has got to be the best most rewarding thing in the world. I don’t even know what I did before I had Elle. Yes, even the lack of sleep, and having a fussy baby is worth it. Elle now gives kisses. Well, really she eats your face. But, those slobbery filled kisses, are the best kisses in the world. My first Mother’s Day is coming up. I am really excited about it. Last year I celebrated Mother’s Day, but it is completely different this year. My sweet girl is here. This has been the best 8 months of my life.
