Last year was my first Mother's Day as an actual mother. I wasn't even thinking about a second baby at the time.
When we woke up in the morning, we spent some time snuggling together in bed:
Grace took care of Charley, so I could have a break:
Of course, Charley just snoozed away, so there wasn't much for Grace to do:
I had already told Isaac exactly what I wanted, but wasn't sure that he'd remember or actually get it for me.
When Grace was born, his mom got me a beautiful frame with a picture of Grace and all of her birth stats engraved on the side.
needed wanted one for Charley too, so that they'd each have one when they got older.
To my surprise, Isaac remembered and gave it to me while I was cuddling with my girls (it still feels amazing to say MY GIRLS!):
I absolutely love it and put it in the hutch next to Grace's immediately so everyone could see it when they came over.
Then, Grace and Charley gave me another surprise; this super cute Pandora bracelet from Jared:
Grace picked out a carriage charm from Charley, a 'mom' charm from her, and a charm with each of their birthstones (diamond for April and pearl for June...how lucky is that?!):
I have the best kiddos in the world!
Grace was really excited about it:
A little later, Grace took a bath and brushed her teeth to get ready for the day:
Charley's umbilical cord fell off, so she got her first bath too:
She was not very happy about it:
Once we were all ready, Grace posed for some pictures. This kid is obsessed with the camera:
Isaac's mom, Craig, Zacarias, and Stefanie came over for brunch. Isaac made some waffles and I made a fruit salad. Along with mimosas and monkey bread, it was delicious!
A little later we went to my mom's to have dinner and spend some time with her. This was the first year I didn't go to the Artfest on Water Street with her. It's always been our Mother's Day tradition. Next year we'll be back at it for sure!
I can't believe I am a mommy to TWO beautiful little girls. I'm so thankful to have them in my life along with such an amazing husband. Mother's Day was extra special this year, and I couldn't have asked for more!
