Mother's Day

I love that Isla came in time for us to celebrate our first Mother's Day. She's the best present ever.

Bryan did a pretty good job competing with Isla for the best gift. He gave me:

>>>a book for when I need some adult time

>>>a movie for when I need some down time

>>>and a massage gift certificate for when I need some me time

He and his mom also made a delicious Mother's Day dinner!

I have been so lucky to have the most amazing mom. She came and stayed with us for 2 weeks after Isla was born and she took care of everything. She made me breakfast, lunch, dinner everyday, did our laundry, cleaned and picked up after us. It was so nice to have that time to bond with and get to know Isla while my mom did everything else. I couldn't ask for a more incredible mother.

Bryan also has a wonderful mother. And she also stayed with us for 2 weeks. And took care of us like my mom did. She is such a great mother-in-law. I am so lucky to have married into a great family.

Happy belated Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers. I'm so happy to be part of your club!
