This was my very first Mother's Day and it was very special to me. Mari let me sleep in, sleeping for 7 and a half hours straight. When I got up, I nursed her, and went right back to sleep for another 3 hours. It was awesome!
Don brought me breakfast in bed and I found a card that Mari had "made" for me. It was so sweet and I loved it! Guapo even ran to me to show me his love.
At church, we had a special blessing for all the mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers. We'd dressed her in one of the frilly pink dresses that Danika gave us, but after wearing it for half an hour, she was not having it any more. She fussed and fussed, and fussed but as soon as we took it off, she was at peace. I didn't get to snap a picture of her in it either! Oh well, next time. Also, I was given a beautiful orchid corsage to wear. It was really great.
Later on, I went shopping for some much needed trousers for work. I'm able to fit into a lot of my old clothes again (more specifically, one dress that I wanted to fit in by the end of the month and I do!!). In looking through my old clothes, I realized that I needed to revamp a big part of my work wardrobe since I work in an environment that is much dressier than my previous job. I didn't realize how little business attire I had since I'd been wearing a lot of maternity wear pretty much the entire time. I picked up a few bottoms (now I need tops!) and headed home so we could go watch Iron Man. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the movie and this will be one that I'll buy. Even better was that we got to preview the new Batman flick and I'm SUPER stoked about that film.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a fabulous Mother's Day! Thanks to everyone for the wonderful texts, cards, and phone calls. It was very, very special indeed!
(special thanks to Kelly for snapping that cute picture of Mari!)
