Happy Mother's Day

This past Sunday was Mother's Day, and I had a fantastic day with my little girl, and my loving husband. It started with Stephanie sleeping until 8:30. Her typical wake-up time is 7:30, and I had elicited a promise from Dan that he would get up with her, change her diaper, and give her a sippy cup of milk. Of course, I started waking up at 6:30, and continued to doze for an hour and a half, until I finally got up at 8:15. My back ached (side-effect of pregnancy) and I couldn't lie there anymore. I did however get to enjoy a cup of coffee in silence, which is pure bliss.

When Stephanie and Dan finally woke up, I was showered with Mother's Day gifts. Stephanie gave me two children's books about Mommies, which she helped her daddy pick out at the store. Dan gave me two maternity dresses, which are appropriate to be worn at the three weddings we have to attend this summer. This was such a thoughtful gift, since he knew I was having trouble figuring out what I was going to wear to these occasions.

After gifts, Dan proceeded to cook breakfast for us. The smells of pancakes, eggs, and toast filled our apartment, and it was such a freeing feeling to eat such a delicious meal without having to cook it or clean up afterwards. I felt like such a lucky Mom. We then spent an hour at the playground, took Stephanie home for lunch and a nap, and then headed off for dinner at a fabulous restaurant.

My Mother's Day was picture-perfect this year, and I have to say, it was an improvement over last year. This year I feel like an old pro at this mother-hood thing. Stephanie isn't a baby anymore, she's an active toddler who is on a great schedule. She sleeps through the night, can communicate her wants and needs (for the most part), and is truly fun to be around. Last year I was still adjusting to having a new baby, was suffering from sleep deprivation, and wasn't able to fully enjoy the day. What a difference a year makes!
