My First Mother's Day

First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all of you mamas out there. I have been looking forward to my first one for a long time. Before I tell you about mine, let's pause for a photo...
Her onesie says "Mommy adores me", but you can only see that from this shot. You can tell we have a wiggle worm on our hands...
OK, anyway. Our Mother's Day was celebrated across 2 days, as most holidays seem to be these days. Larkyn and I met up with Nana at The Cambridge Tea House for breakfast. When Julie and I visited Cambridge for her birthday, I remember thinking how excited I would be to bring my daughter there for Mother's Day!  We had a great fancy breakfast, then came home to greet my cousins who were visiting from Pennsylvania. I haven't seen them in decades (really). It amazes me how a baby will bring a family together:o)  It was fun to catch up and laugh at their stories. Larkyn enjoyed being passed around and fussed over.

Then today for my own Mother's Day, we had an early start with someone being fussy at 5 am. She actually looked (and sounded!) like she was in pain, so I cuddled with her on the couch for a few hours so that everyone could sleep. I got my first Mother's Day card and Matt suggested we go look at dishwashers. Yahoo! This may not sound exciting to you, but our dishwasher is my arch nemesis. It is terrible and grosses me out every time I unload it. So, Larkyn had her first trip to Daddy's favorite store: Lowe's!  We came home with a lovely Whirlpool model that Matt and my dad are going to install tomorrow. Hopefully that will not be as hard as it sounds. 

We just got back from my parents house (Nana and PawPaw), where we had the first cookout of the summer! With my first Mothers Day behind me, I am excited for my first year of being a mama!
