Week 38: Celebrations of Sorts

Week 38: 05/05/13 - 05/11/13

My first Mother's Day. 
What an honor.  
A blessing. 
To have a day to celebrate being a mom.

By far the best job I've ever had. 
And most rewarding. 

This year's day was extra special.
Because it was my first
And because it was the day you turned 38 weeks old.
The exact number of weeks you were in my belly. 

How incredibly amazing. 
And quite surreal to think about.

This picture was taken my first day of school this year.
38 weeks. 
I never got to do a 38 week bump update. 
Because you decided to come 2 weeks early.

I'd say I prefer this side of 38 weeks a bit more. 
Because I get to snuggle you.
Giggle with you. 
And love on you. 
Whenever I want. 
*And the whole no more morning sickness thing is quite the added bonus. ;)

And now here we are. 
Celebrating 38 of the best weeks of our lives. 
And honoring motherhood.

I woke up on Sunday morning to a Mother's Day Summer Package "from Chunkin".
In it contained some goodies.
Each one labeled. 
Colas for our "Pool Dates".
Coffee for our "Girl Talks"
Cookie cutters for our "Bake Offs". 
And some other funsies.
Your dad...err...I are too sweet!

We of course had a three-generation celebration.
Because not only am I a mama, 
but Grams and Gigi are mamas...
and grandmamas too!
They get *double* the love. 

You were sick this week. 
I guess you're just sticking to what you know.
Like when you were sick on my birthday
Or we finally realized you suffered from colic right around the holidays

But I haven't seen you congested like you were this week.
You had quite the little cough. 
And a hoarse baby is probably the saddest thing I've ever witnessed.
Luckily, it turned out just to be a bad cold.
And you totally rallied.

Now, you are already on the mend!

And although it sure breaks my heart to see you so sick,
I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the extra cuddles. 
And the extra, "maaaa-maaaa"s. 
Love it. 
Love you.

Sick or not. 
It was a fabulous Mother's Day.
