Mother's Day #2

I must say that this Mother's Day was much better than the last.  While my first Mother's Day will always be special, I can't say that I missed spending the day in the hospital.  The girls were a mere 27 days old last year, while I can say I will never forget that day, I'm very happy to be looking forward as opposed to backwards this year!!

My girls were very thoughtful this year.  They got me some lovely flowers to plant in our yard as well as a manicure and pedicure.  With the help of my own Mom (since Terry still can't lift the girls), Terry had the girls sign the cards for me.  Of course their signatures consisted of the cutest little scribbles you ever saw.  I was wondering how Alexis got ink all over her face.  Apparently she was more interested in eating the pen than actually practicing her penmanship. 

The girls also got me one of those cards which plays music.  Off the top of my head, I can't recall the song?  Maybe that's because the girls took the card from me and thought it was funny to open and close it.  I'm pretty sure I heard the song close to 150 times yesterday?  Maybe that's why I can't remember what song it is?  I've blocked it from my head.  Regardless, it was pretty comical to watch the girls open the card and start dancing whenever they hear the music.

I'm very blessed to be able to call myself the Mom of two beautiful and healthy baby girls.  A year ago we weren't so sure that we would actually make it here.  I can honestly say that we couldn't have done it without the love and support of all our family and friends.  Not one day goes by that I don't thank God for granting me the privilege of being a Mommy.

I'm glad you had a nice Mother's Day - it's always a time to look back, reflect and go - WOW! How did we get here!?!? God is good! :)
