this time last year...

This time last year I was having a great baby shower and picturing what our baby would look like. I was nesting and worrying. I was full of joy and hope. I was also soooo ready to have the baby.


Fastforward to now, I'm chasing a blueberry stained face around the house listening to monkey giggle and say mama.

My life is beautiful and I couldn't ask for more. Being a mom has fulfilled my life in more ways than I can count. My son is a gorgeous smart little guy. I'm so proud. He's been walking on his own for over 2 weeks and he walks everywhere. He talks a lot too. We've had him say about 12 words repeatedly and he understands soo much too. I'm so amazed how my little pink tiny baby has grown into this walking talking toddler.

Happy Mother's Day.

This day is has a twinge of bittersweetness to it for me. It's my first Mother's with Scout * outside of the belly * and my 3rd without my mom. I've always loved Mother's Day. At first ,as a teen, it was a day for me to be mushy about my mom without getting flack from my "cool" friends and also a way to score brownie points. As I got older it became a special day to show my mom how great I thought she was. Seriously, my mom freaking rocked. She was funny, smart and tough as nails.
As a mommy, this is a day to celebrate my child. He made me a mommy. Thank you Monkey for being my son.I've been your mommy for 11 months as of today and it has been the hardest most beautiful time of my life. My heart is overwhelmed with love because of you.

So today I want to thank my mom and my son for making me the mommy I am. I only hope that both of you are proud of me and I do you two justice.

I hope all of the Moms out there have a beautiful day.
