So... What is Mother's Day like with a baby? I didn't have any expectations really, and this is a good and surprising thing if you know me!
Sunday morning I woke up with a little light gleaming in on me through the window... this is a good sign... it means the babe slept past 7am! Thank you baby Stella!
I hear a sudden cry and head up the stairs to feed her. Instantly the smell of poop hit me in the face. Oh goodness. Back down the stairs to get supplies (louder crying) and back up again. I pick up the babe and realize... oh my, wet wet wet. She has peed/pooped through her diaper, through her onesie, through her pants, through her sleeper, through the sheets and through the mattress pad. Yuck! Back down the stairs, with the supplies and wake up Drew to help me out. We get her cleaned up, a bath and head back up the stairs for breakfast. Happy Mother's Day? hmmmm...
After her breakfast we head back down stairs where Drew had a great breakfast of eggs and an english muffin! YUM! Happy Mother's Day!
Then after SJ goes back down for a nap, we headed upstairs to take a nap in the guest bed (SJ naps in our room). HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! I am terrible at taking a nap but really awesome at needing one and this was the best mother's day present any one could have given me! I took a long nap and woke up in time to feed the babe her lunch. After this we ate at Qdoba b/c they had a BOGO for mother's. Some friends joined us and we had a great time up until time for SJs nap.
During the nap we sat outside and talked and then watched part of a movie.
SJ had dinner and we were off to church. They were taking free family photos and mailing them to people for Mother's Day. Then Drew treated me by holding SJ the whole time and taking her to the nursery. When they paged us (b/c she was so upset) he even went and got her. During communion we found out some of our best friends were in labor (a month early)!!
We came home and ate a small dinner and finished our movie. We cleaned up a little and went to bed!
What a wonderful Mother's Day. The best gift of all was a restful day with my wonderful Husband... there is seriously nothing better in my book!
It's hard to get back into the Monday groove (our longest day usually) after such fun and pampering!
Here's a little sneak peek at the sleeping babe about a month ago...
