olivia gave me the best gift today.... she took 2 naps! 2, 2 hour naps! and i napped right along with her! i'm so blessed to have a happy, healthy, beautiful baby girl. i'm not going to lie. today was kinda hard. it was nothing like i had ever dreamed my first mother's day would be. but, i wasn't "left out". olivia's dad took her shopping and she got me a gift and a card. i will treasure it forever. i did have one problem... i had no one to take a picture of me and her today. soooo, next year i will plan better! we had a low key day. b/c she napped so much we missed church. i was dressed and almost ready (lacked putting on make-up) when i realized she was TIRED. so, to bed she went and therefore we missed church. then, lunch at fox's pizza. yes, a lovely mother's day lunch at fox's. the veggie weggie is awesome! we played for a little while and then another nap. i am NOT a napper but for some reason i needed them today! after that we went to a friend's to make olivia's birthday banner with her cricket. that machine is great! i want one! that was pretty much our day. and i loved every minute of it b/c i was with my baby girl (who's not too much of a baby anymore...) so, happy mother's day to all of the great women out there who are blessed to have the hardest job in the world. i wouldn't trade it for the world. i love you, olivia.
oh, i need to note that olivia broke her first piece of glass today. this probably makes me a terrible mother but i have these "thingy's" on a low shelf that i let her play with. i'm all about picking my battles and if that's what she wants to play with, then so be it. these "thingy's" (for lack of a better term) have a wood base and glass top. also on that shelf is a rose bowl she loves to play with. seriously, she's been throwing these things around for a good 2 months now so i figured they were both unbreakable. let's be real, she would drop them on carpet, not nearly enough force to break anything. well, i didn't even think that she could possibly drop the heavier rose bowl on top of the flimsy glass thingy... she did. and it shattered. all around her bare feet. i was on the phone with jackie when it happened. she thought she did a "good" thing. she just smiled... she finally cried when i got the vaccuum cleaner out to clean it up. i think this might have been the first time i vaccuumed in front of her and she didn't like it! sorry for the rambling but i had to document this in her "baby book".
again, happy mother's day!
