My First Mother's Day

May 10, 2015

 

Today is my first mother’s day as a mom to the most amazing baby boy.  Teddy – you have changed my life in such a short period of time.  I never knew I had so much love to give until you were born.

The last 5 weeks have been some of the most exciting of my life.  Even though I have said good-bye to sleep and hot meals and somedays a shower, my life has been replaced with a family of three, sweet smiles, hours of cuddle time, and so much love.

Thank you Teddy.  I love being your mom.  It is the best gift I have ever been given and I can’t wait to watch you grow, to love you unconditionally, to hopefully teach you a thing or two along the way and to receive snuggles that continue for many years to come.

As I celebrate today, I have to thank my own mother.  She is the most amazing woman and I am so thankful to be her daughter. If I can be half the mom to Teddy as she was and continues to be to me, I know he’ll be in good hands.  Thank you mom for your constant understanding, support, listening ear, love, and cheerleading.  I love you so much and I wish you a day just for you with no dirty dishes in the sink, the perfect movie to relax to and all the pampering and love you deserve.  XOXO

 

To the rest of the special moms and mom’s-to-be in my life – I wish you a wonderful day devoted to how amazing each of you are.  Big Big Cheers to all of you – because being a mom isn’t easy.  It’s probably the toughest, yet most rewarding job we will ever have.  I toast every single one of you! XOXO
