Mothers Day is so special. After all, the savior of the world came through the womb of a woman. It's a day to celebrate your moms who have sacrificed so much to raise you. I am very thankful for my mom. I know it was not always easy for her raising a "troublesome" child all alone while going through cancer. I look back at how much she did during that time when I was nothing but a disrespectful, boundary pushing teenager. I wish I could take back the time and have made it easier but since I can't, today I am that much more thankful for her. I love you mom and thank you for all you have done for me!!

This mothers day was extra special b/c I am now a mom myself. I have been waiting for that for a while now. Last mothers day was especially difficult since I knew that having a child on my own would be difficult and the surgery was not seeming to help me get pregnant. I remember the pain of not being able to stand in the church as a proud mother and watching the mommy videos on the big church TV screen, desperately aching from the pit of my soul. And while I was able to really celebrate and give praise on Mothers Day, my heart went out to all of those who were going through what I went through. Mothers day is a reminder for some that it may never happen.
Chris made mothers day wonderful. Woke up to pancakes made, kitchen cleaned and beautiful pink hydrangeas with new perfume on the table. He was proud in church, helped make mothers day lunch and spend quality time with me in the afternoon. I know we won't have many more days like that when Noah gets here.
God has given me my favorite present of all, Noah. There is no such thing as a Christian who's been spoiled rotten with spiritual gifts. God gives us gifts that fit us perfectly, gifts that fill and complete us. God has done that with Noah. The road has been difficult to say the least, but he knew that it would bring me closer to him. So in reality, I have been given two wonderful gifts, Noah and a deeper relationship with my father.
Noah is now just over 36 weeks. So 9 months and counting. I don't know how big he is now but I was told at the specialist at 34 weeks and 5 days that he weighed close to 7lbs and his head measured at 39 weeks!! He is one BIG boy! On top of that, he has his dad's baby chipmunk cheeks. I can't wait to see, hold and kiss all over that chunky monkey!
