my very first mother's day! 31 weeks pregnant and LOVING IT.
i am surrounded by amazing and inspiring mamas and love. we are so lucky to both live close to our moms, especially as we enter the parenting phase of our lives.
it was darin's mom's 60th birthday on friday so we hit the town.
debby's birthday always falls very close to or right on mother's day, so each year we have a chance to shower her with lots of extra love and gratitude. she has always been the most incredibly loving and generous mother for darin and all three of her sons, which is no surprise if you know them.
a man like this has got to have a good mama.
then this morning we met up with my mom for the best country breakfast at the diamond springs hotel.
of course, she comes bearing gifts...the rascal!
you ever wondered where we get our excitability?!
i wore her 1970's dress which i fill out rather snugly now :)
came home later and got comfy for some relaxing, housecleaning and errands around town.
as big as i'm getting, i still feel cute. i can't believe it!
another inspiring mama i got to hang out with this week, my friend rebecca, who has the most unique and genius eccentric little son. we went to sylvan's open house to support him in his role as alexander graham bell in the second grade play. yes, this is the child who is obsessed with antique telephones, quite apropos.
the kids engaged in a bit of square dancing as well. sylvan took it all very seriously.
sylvan shows mom his self-portrait.
in which he describes his afternoon activity of being a teacher and playing school and yard duty with his dog siri.
i am soooo excited to become a mother.
this baby inside me grows and grows as the sun shines and shines,
at night she dances. i feel like she's singing.
i can feel her rhythms and she is our baby and she lives inside me and everything in the world is full of light.
