I was reminded again that Mother’s Day weekend is really one of my favorites of the whole year. We kicked it off with Muffins with Moms on Friday.
I continue to be astounded by Harper’s transformation from toddler to little girl right before our eyes.
Saturday started with a neighborhood stroll and playground hang with our new little friend Ali
… followed by gymnastics where I watched Harper make the unilateral decision to take herself into the higher beam. After getting halfway up, she asked the instructor for help and was told to wait as the class would try that one next. The instructor turned around and I watched her little wheels spin: “I won’t draw attention to myself again.” And, up she went…
We took an impromptu rainy trip to the Baltimore aquarium on Sunday after homemade breakfast, presents and flowers.
Our afternoon was spent with a scooter trip around the block, family hot tub fun (set at bath water temp to accommodate munchkin #3) and movie time snuggles with both kids vying to take up as much physical space on top of me as possible.
I went to bed thinking about how nervous I was to become a mom, scared mostly about how to juggle work and family. I never knew motherhood would bring me so much pure happiness. Feeling very grateful for the weekend spent at home with our little fam before heading off to SF for the week on business. And, now that I’m finally, FINALLY not nauseous all the time, also actually have some room to be excited about what’s to come.
