Yes, it's time for the obligatory Mother's Day re-cap! While I was excited to celebrate for the first time as a mom, my expectations for the day were low given that our families weren't in town and we had two little infants to take care of... apparently they don't break for holidays- who knew?
Nonetheless, Brian did a great job of making me feel loved, which I appreciate even more knowing just how tired he is. In fact, after the twins woke us up at 5 am to eat on Sunday morning, instead of going back to sleep, Brian snuck off on a secret mission to the grocery store to prepare this:
I kid you not when I say it was the most amazing french toast I have ever eaten. And in fact, he made 4 extra pieces so I could enjoy some this week as well. I sure am going to miss being pregnant/nursing and the accompanying permission to stuff my face when holidays like this roll around next year!
Fun fact: in true mother-of-5-week-old-twins fashion, I enjoyed this tasty breakfast while pumping. Fun times.
Colby, Clara, Noah, and Buster also had Brian pick these up at the store- so thoughtful of
We spent the rest of the day hanging around the house with the exception of lunch out at Cafe Express and a quick trip to Babies R Us.
1. I look exhausted... because I am.
2. I wanted to get a picture of me actually holding them before we left the house, but the little wiggle worms weren't cooperating.
We experimented with a couple of bows on Clara for the day, but in the end opted for the smaller of the two:
Colby was also looking cute yesterday, but due to some persistent fussiness, I wasn't able to get a good picture of him awake. You'll have to settle for one of the 8,000 tummy time shots of him instead:
(that's a shadow, he didn't pee through his diaper... this time)
Anyway, the day wasn't super glamorous, but being a new mom isn't super glamorous, so I think it was fitting. It was just another reminder of how thankful I am that God made me the mommy to these two little babies, and that He gave me Brian as a partner in
attempting to figure them out raising them!
