First Mother's Day

I had my first ever Mother's Day this year and I had to work hard to not cry all day.  I'm so thankful to have a baby in our family that I am sometimes overcome with emotion.  It took me a full month to even write about it.
Travis and my family helped me celebrate Mother's Day with a fantastic brunch at my parents' house.  It wasn't just for me-  my sister, grandmother, and mom were all honored, too.  Travis presented me with a beautiful frame with Adaline's hands and feet prints.  He took care of me all day long, making sure I knew how much he appreciates and loves me.  Adaline and I spent some quiet time together after brunch, just being together.  I will never get tired of looking at or holding her.  She's just getting into the snuggling stage, where she'll burrow into your shoulder and chest.  I know she'll be too big to do that all too soon, so I try and soak up every nuzzle that she's willing to give me.
Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the moms out there.  I hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did.
