My 1st Mothers Day

My Mother's day was fantastic! I have waited so long to become a mom, that the day felt bittersweet at moments. Thinking about all the other women dealing with infertility and waiting for their miracles. Mother's Day used to be so difficult for me, since it was a reminder of what I wasn't. This year was different, I had my beautiful baby and as if that wasn't gift enough my thoughtful loving husband left no detail out! I spent the morning cuddling my two babes and opening gifts! One of them was the Vera Bradley Baby Bag I have been drooling over. Mike said Kate picked the color Raspberry Fizz....ADORABLE! How cute they went shopping together! Then we headed in town to the Swan Boats and the Ducks... What a great way to spend a sunny afternoon. Everyone oooohed and ahhhhed over our little princess. Then we went to The Big Slide Park in Arlington, which was a park I went to as a child. Kate had her 1st slide and swing ride! Can't wait to go again. We then had dinner at one of my favorite local restaraunts Jimmys' Yummo! Thanks Mike and Kate for a beautiful, and memorable Mother's Day!

4 Month Monkey Pictures!

I know I am a little late in posting these...but, wanted them posted before her 5 month pictures! WOW! 4 months already...our little princess is doing Fantastic! She is weighing it at 10lbs 10oz! She has doubled her birth weight!!! She has outgrown all of her NB clothing and some of her 0-3 mos. She is in Size 1 diapers and heading to size 2 quickly! She eats 6 oz bottles every 3 hours or so! She is a very happy, smiling baby. She is her daddy's girl, but thinks I am OK too! Her bond with Mike is really an amazing thing to see. She makes all our days Bright! She is our Miracle!
