Mother's Day

Today was my first official mother's day. It has been filled with a mixture of emotions. This morning, I was feeling sorry for myself. It just isn't fair that on my first mother's day, my daughter woke up in a different house than me. Nothing related to this situation is fair. So, I had a pity party.

But, then I saw my daughter. She was so cheerful this morning. She lept toward me as soon as she saw me. Then, she must have known I needed a big pick me up. After church, we were in the basement during coffee hour. Baby Beautiful was playing on the floor. She started to crawl toward the stairs. I wasn't too worried, since 8 month olds aren't supposed to be able to crawl up the stairs. Well, she did it! I stood right behind her so she wouldn't fall, and she climbed up about 8 steps! Holy cats! It took about 10 min for her to do it...and she was so proud of herself! I caught the last 3 steps on video on my phone. I'm such a proud mommie!

The rest of the day was great! I was able to celebrate with my family, including my beautiful daughter's namesake! we had a great dinner and had fun at the park. She partied hard...and was sound asleep by 7pm.

I'm a bit sad again, but I will be able to cherish the memories of this day with baby Beautiful forever!

Oh, and at the advise of someone who commented on my blog, I'll be referring to my daughter as Baby Beautiful from now on instead of baby xxx. She is too beautiful to be called xxx!

  1. How awesome:) I can't believe she went up steps! Sometimes I wish there was just some way to just make life easier. A quote I like:

    Life is the toughest teacher. She tests first then teaches afterward.

    I really hope she comes home to you soon.

  2. I love that you are calling her Baby Beautiful!!! It is much better than the Xs! I am glad you were able to enjoy this mother's day! I know that soon you will have her home with you, where she belongs!
    Prayers and good thoughts!

  3. Happy Mother's Day. I feel a bit selfish being all pissy towards my husband for not getting me a gift - truth is - he did - our baby girl! Thanks for helping me put things in perspective. You sure will have a story to tell her when she's older! Take care, hugs, and prayers to you and baby Beautiful.

  4. I just wanted to let you know that I think and pray for you and Baby Beautiful often. You are so strong. But as I've learned is you don't know who strong you are until you are faced with a situation that makes you stronger! Much love to you and Baby Beautiful, may she come home soon! <3
