Mother's Day...

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day, especially those celebrating their very first one! For me there were some tears, but they were happy tears. As I was holding Lauren this morning I thought about the many years we had hoped and prayed for a child and finally she is here! It felt amazing!

Lauren has had a runny nose and a cough since Friday, but today she seemed a little better when she woke up. Now Joe and I both have sore throats and runny noses. I guess whatever Lauren gets will probably always run it's course through the house!

Today we took my Mom to an early lunch at Macaroni Grill (yum!) and then just had a quite day at home...just what I wanted. Also, I woke up to very sweet cards and a Brighton ID bracelet that says "Mother". I love it.

Here's a pic of Lauren showing Grandma ("ma") her gift...


The best part of any gift is playing with the tissue paper. Where's Lauren??


Oh, THERE she is!!!


This is fun "ma"!


Here we are before we headed out for lunch...

Happy first Mother's Day. They only get better as they grow up. Mia was so excited to give me her card and flowers. Yesterday she kept telling me I couldn't go into the basement.
