We did not get to go home for Mother's Day, Nathan was out of town until Friday night. So we had a very special weekend w/just our fam of 4. It was sweet and low key and perfect. Nathan did a great job giving me lots of little breaks all weekend. I wish it could be Mother's Day every weekend! I will just hit the high points, b/c the little baby in our house is about to wake up soon!
* Daddy got home Friday night-yippee! I do not like when he is away. It's no fun for anybody, least of all his little 2 year old girlfriend. She wants her Daddy home all the time. I am not quite ready to do the bath/bedtime routine w/both by myself just yet. Leah, Alice, and Claire came over to play Thursday night for a bit while I gave W his bath and put him to bed. Big cousins are so cool! Thanks for coming to play and hang out, Leah! We had a great time!
*We celebrated sweet Caroline's 2nd birthday w/a fun bouncy house, balls and hoola hoops and cupcakes on Saturday. All perfect things for little people!
*I had some fun Mother's Day free time ALL by MYSELF on Saturday! I ran a few errands and shopped a little. Found a new dress for my birthday/Watson's dedication day coming up next month. AND, randomly found a piece of furniture at an estate sale close by. I'm so glad I stopped! I could get addicted to those sales. We seem to have quite a few around here lately.
*Played outside and enjoyed the nice summer-y weather. Hayes and W got a new water table for Easter. It's the new favorite thing around here now. I love it too b/c it keeps her entertained and in ONE spot while we are outside.
*Went to bed early Saturday night and Nathan got up to feed Watson during the night. It was so nice to have some uninterrupted sleep!
*Watson had his 1st day in the nursery on Sunday and did great. He napped the whole time until I came back to feed him. I'm glad to have our Sundays back in a sort of normal routine now that he can go to his little class.
*We ate lunch at a new Mexican place in Homewood. Mexican is my favorite. It's about the only thing I ever want if we go out to eat! Both Hayes and Watson behaved thankfully, thanks to Nathan's sweet tea and a spoon for Hayes, and sweet W just had a full tummy so he was happy.
*Sweet cards from my babies and supper cooked all by Nathan, and Hayes helped a little.
**Huge Mother's Day present-Watson slept for 6 hours Sat. night and then 6 1/2 hours last night. Maybe night time is finally clicking w/him. I hope so!!
I love my family. They are precious to me, all 3 of them. I'm thankful they love me back.
And a BIG happy Mother's Day to Nana, Shug, Honey, Alyssa and Lindsey-5 GREAT MOTHERS! We love all of you so much. Hope your day was a special one!
