First Mother's Day

It was nice to be a Mom on Mother's day. Everyone kept telling me to enjoy this one, as the next one won't be as relaxing. Well who cares. The last 34 years have been relaxing. I am looking forward to being a mom for the rest of my life. I will never know what it is to not be a mother again. That is a daunting thought. I am a mother now and forever.

My husband bought me a beautiful Noah's Ark picture frame and put a picture of our beautiful Noah in it. It was the most precious thing ever. I can't wait to finish Noah's room and put it in there. Both of my parents bought me a small token in honor of my new status as Mom. My mom bought me a baby photo album, which I cannot wait to fill, and my father and his girlfriend gave me a hanging plant. I will water and care for it and watch it bloom as I wait to pick up my baby who is being fed, cared for and watched until he is offically ours.

On a more practical note, hubby and I finished install 2/3 of our kitchen cabinets. It was an intense 2 days of work, but wow--kitchen cabinets are wonderful. We had none before. We are putting in the countertops tonight on the part that is finished. Then later in the week we are ripping out the sink and putting up the cabinets on that side of the kitchen. It will be great when all is said and done. Of course there is still painting to finish, then tile to lay, etc. But it is all worth it because that must be finished before I can begin work on the nursery. I am dying to do that. I cannot wait to get my hands on Noah's room.

Dawn, if you can hang cabinets and install countertops, motherhood is going to be a breeze!
