Anderson says "Mama"

Parker and Carter both said "dada" first.... well, Anderson breaks the mold and says "Mama"... I know he's not really calling me, but it melts my heart every time. He is such a sweety. Ignore the background craziness, it was speech time. ps- I love that I can post videos from fb and the people who aren't on my fb can't see them on my blog. Perfection.

Mother's Day 2012

My Mother's Day didn't go exactly as planned, but it was awesome! :) 

I got to "sleep in" and when I went to get in the shower, I noticed a text from a doula client.... she'd been having contractions since 11pm. Mother's day baby? 

After I got out of the shower, Parker wanted me to open his gift from school. It was ADORABLE. It was all about MOM.... Did you know I am 81 yrs old with red eyes and red hair? Yeah, me either. On the other side was a poem about little hands with Parker's handprints. I nearly cried.

At church I gave a talk about "teaching our children to understand".... I was glad I was able to give the talk because I thought I was going to have to miss it for the birth!

After I quickly taught my primary lesson-- I changed and headed to the hospital. I arrived to the hospital at 12:30pm... 

5:16pm I helped to welcome a beautiful baby boy and celebrated a mother's first Mother's Day! It was so special.

After, I visited my friend Daisy (who had broken her leg days before) and brought her a corsage from church and some other little gifts. I read her my talk-- I didn't want her to miss out. ;)
Parker made me this cupcake at the JoAnn make and take on Saturday.
Carter made this for Mommy (along with a cookie that he later ate) in Nursery!
What a special day it was. I am so blessed!!!!!!!
