My 1st Mother's Day

Today was my first Mother's Day. It was awesome. I just love my family - I don't even think I can explain to you how much. I am so proud to be Jonathan's wife and so proud to be Brenna's mommy. I never, ever, ever dreamed I could be so blessed with such an amazing life. This may sound like a lot of fluff, but it's so true. My Mother's Day card said something about me wanting to be a mother for so long. It's true - I dreamed of this for a long time. But, you know what? It's better than I could have ever dreamed. The things I thought would be hard (no sleep, crying babies, losing free time) aren't even issues for us really. She is such a good baby, but that isn't the reason I love her so much. I'd love her even if she kept me up all night crying and never smiled. All of that is just icing on the cake. My heart is overflowing, ya'll. Motherhood is totally my thing! :)

Brenna's special Mother's Day shirt! :)

Posing with Mommy way too late at night - when we remembered to take one! The frame is one of my Mother's Day gifts - so sweet. And if you look reallllly closely you'll see one of my other gifts hanging around my neck. It's personalized with Brenna's name and birthdate!
Flowers from my mother-in-law
Brenna's hand - Jonathan did this totally on his own.
I'll always treasure this!
And on one last note, Happy Mother's Day to my own mommy. I only hope I'm as good of a mom and friend to Brenna as my mom was and still is to me. Believe it or not, I wasn't always the perfect daughter. She was always right by my side, no matter what. How did I get so lucky to have the best mom and the best daughter? And my mother-in-law is the best I could have asked for. She loves me like her own, and is head-over-heels in love with Brenna. With such a great Nanie and Nana (not to mention the sweetest Grandma and Maw-Maw in the world), Brenna is sure to know just how blessed she is!
