I've finally been able to experience my very first Mother's Day as an actual Mama!! There were definitely times that I thought this day would never happen, but I'm so thankful that it did. God is good.
My baby girl is 7 weeks old, and I still have to pinch myself to make sure this is real. I look at her everyday and try to soak her in. Each morning I stare at her dimpled hands & feet, her chubby cheeks, her sweet lips and lock eyes with her. I never want to forget her babiness or how she perfectly fits into my arms. I promised myself once I finally became a mother, I would never take these days for granted. I am praying for so many of my friends that would give anything to experience this for themselves one day, and I KNOW that God will provide this!
Ok, you know I always have to post some outtakes! Here she is practicing her cheerleading pose. I'd love it if she followed in my footsteps. :)
This one cracks me up. What is she trying to look at??
Had to get a mother/daughter pic.
It was the perfect day and super sunny (as you can see on Maggie's face).
Our flowers are in full bloom and that it would be cute to take pictures of Maggie in front of some of them.
I was trying to show Maggie's cute shoes here but she was done taking pictures at this point. Ha! The shoes were a gift from some of my coworkers.
We had a wonderful day. Ryan let me just lounge around the house and watch whatever TV show I wanted. :) He made me the best homemade meal I've had in awhile. Then he gifted me with an iPad because he knows how immobile I can be especially while I'm breastfeeding. This will definitely come in handy!!
We also had our good friends, Brad & Lindsey, visiting us for the weekend which was a blast. We gave them the tour and then mostly played Canasta all weekend (and it wasn't because we had a baby - nerd alert!).
Brad & Maggie
Doesn't he seem like a natural?!
I mean come on! Look how he's helping Ryan out with baby duty!
Linds looks pretty good with a baby in her arms too. ;)
Uncle Brad & Aunt Lindsey come back again soon! Maggie misses you already.
