Mother's Day started out a little silly. There I was, 6am, with a baby nursing on me, and all I could think was "this still doesn't seem real". I turned to Dan and told him how I was feeling, and he agreed. After six wonderful months with our baby Daniel, sometimes I can't believe how much life has changed for us. Do all parents feel this way, and if so, for how long?
Daniel's present to me was three separate spit ups down my bra, so I can feel the love! Dan surprised me with a beautiful card that he made himself. He stayed up late the night before and used my stamping and paper craft supplies all without me knowing. It was so sweet and I know he put his heart into it, which is the best kind of present.
I feel so thankful for all of the mothers that welcomed me into their secret club this year. The support, sympathy and celebration that I have received makes me proud to call myself "mommy".
