My First Mother's Day

"What did my hands do before they held this child?
What id I think about, worry about, dream about?
What things touched my heart before I saw this child's smile,
before I heard this child's cry,
before I felt this incredible bond?
Who was I before I became this child's mother?
Somehow, now, I can't remember."

This was on the card my MIL & FIL sent me for Mother's Day!
I love it!
It's so true, I really don't remember life before being Kaidence's Mommy!
I know she is only 7 months old - but, my life has changed so, so much and I am so, so thankful!
I have had a wonderful Mother's Day {weekend!}
Josh has done so much for me, I am so thankful for my precious, precious husband and baby girl!
We have been to Dauphin Island to the beach, had dinner at Red Lobster's, and today he fixed me breakfast.

He & Kaidence bought me the Lady Antebellum CD and a new hibiscus tree for my gifts!
He is now grilling some yummy steaks and ribs for lunch & dinner.
We are going to enjoy a great lunch, watch movies, and just spend time together today! :)

And just for fun, this was Mother's Day last year.
I was 4 or 5 months pregnant.
I am glad I have my precious girl here with me this year, instead of taking awkward tummy pictures...
how I really felt about all the pictures...HA!

to all you wonderful Mommy's out there!
