I'm officially celebrating my first Mother's Day this weekend, and I'm so excited! A year ago this weekend, we were getting ready host a dinner to announce our little one's gender to our family and friends, when we had to adjust everything due to a house fire. I'm happy to say that this May has been great so far! I cannot believe it has been a year since first hearing that our little baby was going to be a boy! And now he is almost 8 months old...which reminds me I need to take some photos and post some as well! This week, my Mom came to watch Remington while I was on-location for a portrait session. She brought me some lovely lilacs from my childhood home! Their sweet fragrance filled the room. Remington has been smiling at the blooms, and I just wonder what he thinks as we both smell them in their vase on the counter top. He gently closes his eyes and smiles to himself, it is the sweetest thing! Then he grabs for the petals with a wide-mouth grin and squeal! Fleeting moments like this are what I always want to remember. Becoming a mom has been such a gift, if only for moments just like this one. I am truly blessed with a sweet son, an amazing hubby, and awesome family and friends.
To my Mom...Thank you so much for this life you (and Dad!) have given to me. I am so blessed to have grown up in a warm home with such a sweet, generous, loving mother. I hope I can be half as wonderful to Remington. I love you so much!
And to my mother-in-law, Patti! I continue to love your handsome son more and more each day. Reggie is so great with Remington, a true reflection of your love for him. Watching the two of them play and snuggle melts my heart. I miss you so much and can't wait to see you!
Happy Mother's Day!
