Mother's Day

What a GREAT day it was Sunday!! My sweet sweet husband and son both got me a very nice card. Anthony had asked me when I wanted my cards and I had just said I wanted them before I put on my makeup for church! He gave them to me as soon as we woke up. Of course I cried! What a sweet thing....to get a Mommy card for the first time! (Well, technically I got a Mommy valentine card, too.) We were reveling in the sweetness and then we got ready for church. I asked Anthony what he thought of my pretty new dress and he said it was really nice, but "these" might look better! Out of his pocket he pulled a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings!! Talk about shocked....NO IDEA he was thinking of something that incredible! I've wanted diamond earrings for ages, but he always said I didn't need any more diamonds! He said I had been such a great mommy that I deserved them! What a sneaky little booger!

He also said it was my day so I was able to pick what we did for the day. I wanted to see my family, so after church we went to my grandma's house in Canton. My mom and dad, Aunt Sheila and Uncle Terry, Aunt Karen and Uncle Rick and the twins were all there. It was great to see them again. It was the first time Rick & Karen had seen Lincoln. Aunt Sheila got to snuggle Lincoln again...she hasn't seen him since he was a week old. 

Mamaw was in a great mood and we had a yummy lunch. It was a great way to spend the day. Lincoln was well behaved and we took pictures of the 4 generations that were present.

I still can't believe I have a baby!! It's such a surreal feeling and I still feel like I'm just a kid. I can't believe God created something so beautiful and we brought him to life. It's an incredible thing, and it's nothing anyone can explain to you. No matter what people try to tell you it just doesn't explain it, and you can't explain it to anyone else. It was very nice to be included in this holiday.
I am so thankful for my child, for my husband...for my little family. God has truly blessed us. What a beautiful Mother's Day. 

 He loves hanging out on his Boppy!!
These are such sweet moments...
Lincoln loves to sit up straight. So we opened his Bumbo and propped him up. He really liked it! Yes, we made sure his head was supported and watched him carefully!

Aww, it's cute to see him make the same faces and do his hands the same way as the first few minutes when he was born! Happy 1st Mother's day :)

What a sweet post! He is a doll. Being a mom is the most amazing thing EVER. And diamond earrings aren't bad, either! :)
