Birthday Girl on a Mother's Day

Highlights from Mother's Day:

- Flowers from dear friends/nurses (and their families) from the NICU that took care of our darling Peter. Blessed to be thought of and remembered on this day celebrating the lives of my two angel babies and my role as their mother. Brought tears to my eyes.

- Books/gifts from Zach: The Ordinary Princess (one of my favorite books of all time), Inheritance, Daring to Be Yourself, and The Hiding Place

- Awesome massages from Zach

- Invitation to an amazing Mother's day dinner: Ribs, corn on the cob, homemade bread, salad, and pumpkin pie. I didn't have to cook and didn't have to clean up. Thank you!

- Lucy enjoying all her birthday presents, including the two baby dolls given her at dinner by her new friends

- Lucy enjoying all the stickers given to her by her new friends

- Got chocolates in church instead of a carnation = Win!

- Zach got Lucy all ready for church while I was attending early morning meetings

- My beautiful family sitting next to me in church. Makes my heart overflow each Sunday when I see Zach carrying Lucy into the chapel and bringing her to me. I love having my beautiful family sitting with me each week.

- Wearing my "new" polka dot dress that I thrifted for $0.99 and feeling fabulous in it.

- Wearing my locket to remember the three people who made me a mother.

- Lucy enjoying her birthday carrot cake she picked out, staying up late playing with her new friends, and then skyping with one of her grandmas and family in Alaska for a bit before bed

From some Angels on Earth. Thank you, so much.

Really excited about panties, although not sure she even knows what they are...

My little beauty.

Thanks, Nana and Grandpa!
