My First Mother's Day

Well, maybe last year (when I got flowers from "Emma and Paisley" so none of the fam got suspicious) was technically my first Mother's Day, but there's no way it could've compared to this year. One year ago was a special Mother's Day because Matt and I had our little secret....but this year my feelings about the day were totally different. I love being Zane's mommy and cherish every moment I spend with him. Seriously, what did I do before he came along? Well, I know my house was cleaner, I slept ALOT more, and probably did more shopping!

Matt had to work Sunday morning, but my mom was here so I got to spend time with her! She also took care of Zane (bless her heart, I know she just hated that) and let me go back to sleep for a little while. Ahhh...i love it when my head hits the pillow and I know I don't have to worry about that little guy for a few hours. Then Matt made lunch and we went to Conway for dinner to celebrate with his mom and grandmothers. I also got a card, flowers, and a new camera from Zane, Emma, and Paisley! Thanks kiddos!

Here are some pictures of the first time I saw Zane and the first time I held him. I haven't previously posted these because I was self-conscious of how horrible I look in them, but let's get real. In the real world, 19 hours of labor, 2 hours of pushing, and a c-section don't result in great hair and makeup! This was one of the most special moments in my life, so pretty or not, they're worth posting.

The joy of motherhood is something I so wanted to share with you for soooo long! I'm so thankful we get to share in it together now... You know, I'm thankful for that for many reasons, and one being that means we are still friends;) How many people can say they are really truly still friends as long as we can? I have a very few, and you are one of them as of course you well know, and I am so blessed that is the case:) Hope your first Mother's Day was spectacular!
