First Mothers Day

I cant believe my very first mothers was so wonderful that I forgot to take any pictures. Pitiful I know. But it deserves to be documented that my sweet husband got up with Eva, fed her breakfast, put her back in bed with me to snuggle and proceeded to fix me my favorite breakfast- pancakes and bacon. As my Dad asked, yes, he made them and did not go buy them! This is huge! Pancakes in our house are typically left to the experts but not this day. They were seriously better than Village Inn! Well done.

Then he surprised me with a necklace I'd been wanting forever. Well I'd been wanting a silver necklace with her name on it and he took it up a notch and got the very one I'd been eyeing! Gold star for paying attention honey and for surprising me with the very special token from "Eva" that will be close to my heart forever.

So I spent the rest of the day just being Mom and soaking up the time with her. Since our time during the week is so limited all I really wanted was a whole day of Mommy & Eva time and thats what I got. 

While Jon went to practice for a little while we played, napped, ate, watched Jack's and just loved on each other. I couldnt get enough of her. 

It was a sad afternoon as Jon had to leave us again for three weeks. I cant imagine not seeing her everyday for three weeks but he handled it semi-well. There was some stalling on all our parts but we know its only to get him in position to make all our dreams come true so I try not to complain but man we miss him! Alot! 

My Mom stopped by for a little while - probably to see E more than me - but was thoughtful enough to bring dinner and my favorite desert so all in all- I'll chalk up my very first Mother's Day as a complete success.

I feel so blessed and grateful beyond words to be Eva's Mommy. I love it more and more everyday and just hope than she never questions that I love, adore, support, and pray for her everyday. Here's to many more special Mommy Days together!!

So glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day. Sorry to hear that Jon has to leave again. I know that must be hard. Andrew and I are praying that he will reach his dream quickly.
