Happy Mother's Day, mamas!!!

Hope everyone is doing well.

----

Things here are great. Eowyn sleeps ALL THE TIME, and nurses tons. Her reflux is greatly improved, and Guinevere is an adoring big sister.

Life is so sweet.

Happy Mamas Day!

SAHM to Guinevere (04/05/06) and Eowyn (02/13/09)

Cheers, Happy Mother's Day!

Maia bought me some books (okay, they're books about colours and numbers, but hey, I don't mind reading to her), and then Daddy made me some pancakes with strawberries on top. So far so good!

Yes, happy Mothers Day to all of you! I was remembering that last year on Mothers Day was the day that we did our IUI that brought us our Fiona. Amazing to be here today holding her in my arms. We had our coffee out on the porch this morning while baby girl kicked on her blanket and grabbed wads of her ever patient dogs fur. A beautiful morning here! She's sleeping in her ergo right now. As soon as she wakes up we are off to our favorite coffee shop for brunch. A wonderful day!

Enjoy your little blessings Mamas!

Happy Mother's Day to all! Mine has been relaxing. We went to church this morning while DH stayed at home and cleaned the whole house for me! That was such a great gift! Owyn and I spent the afternoon at my mom's house having lunch and just visiting with her and my sisters. Now I'm home enjoying my clean house and relaxing with my baby girl!

Oh, I could just kick myself. I had no idea this board was still active! Something made me click here, and I'm glad I did!

Happy Mother's Day! This is my first after such a long journey. Aellyn is 3 months tomorrow so today we got our first professional portraits done - can I show them off?

Oh, Paige! What beautiful photos!

We had a lovely Mother's Day here. Very low key and spent honoring our own mothers, but I am just so happy to be a mama! It was wonderful to accept the carnation from the little kids at church this morning and not having to say, "No, no. I don't have any children." I got lots of hugs and congratulations on my first Mother's Day. It made up for Clara being oblivious to the honor she was bestowing on me with her huge, dimpled grins.

Clara is adorable and sweet and loving. I just couldn't be any more blessed.

Paige - Beautiful photos! She is gorgeous!

I had a nice mother's day - a long hot bath, time to myself, and chinese food for dinner : Oh, and dh bought me some flowers. And a steam mop , well that wasn't actually a present, we just needed it.

Last year, mother's day was depressing, we had been trying for a year, and I was just getting over another stupid af and had decided to start fertility testing. Little did I know that I was starting the cycle that would work! This mother's day was a billion times better

Nice to see you Nighten! I had a fantastic day. :-) DH let me sleep a little bit. He got me a beautiful rose bush and an herb garden for mother's day. My mom was visiting..a treat bc she hadn't seen Makenna since she was 5 days old. We went to brunch and to some community rose gardens. DH watched baby while we did a little shopping (just target but it was nice to browse around without rushing LOL) and then my mom baby sat while DH and I went to a concert. It was our first time out alone without the baby. We did make it out together once before but with his brother and his girlfriend. I had sooo much fun being on a date with my DH! And so thrilled to come home to my little girl. My mom enjoyed babysitting on mother's day.

Glad everyone enjoyed their day!

Sorry I've been AFK of late, but Eowyn does best in arms, but isn't a fan of me sitting. Hard to type while standing.

So I don't get online much.

It's nice to "see" all of you mamas though. I miss chatting here! And I'm glad others had a nice mother's day too.

Paige, those pictures are adorable! I would love to get a professional picture done, but haven't been able to.

But since we're showing off, herere are some recent pix of miss Eowyn:

Easter in Mama's lap
Mimicking

And a sweet short video. It's hilarious, because she coughs when she laughs -- like it's as close as she can get to a laugh. Hasn't quite figured it all out yet...

Paige, I love the photos!

Sam gave me the BEST gift...SLEEP!! I got SEVEN hours!! Then DH surprised me with a 2lb box of See's and we had dinner at Ruth's Chris.

I was hoping Sam would let me sleep seven hours again but no such luck....sigh....

Mother's day was our wedding anniversary! We had a great afternoon with my oldest babysitting the middle two and my dh and I went to an early dinner with Linus!

It was very nice!
