I had a great first mother's day. DH, Bellie and I all went to my in-laws' house for a homemade brunch...salad, souffle, cheese grits, croissants, a mix of breakfast meats, fresh berries and cream, and mimosas. After stuffing our faces, we went home, where Bellie and I got to take an hour and half nap! The perfect gift for any mom of a baby not quiet sleeping through the night. After all of that, DH made me a great dinner and we watched Dan in Real Life. It was such a good movie for a Sunday evening.
On top of all that, I got some really cute gifts. Bellie (and DH) gave me the perfect gifts - the book Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts and the most perfect umbrella. It is bright green with hot pink elephants all over it. The reason that it is so perfect? Before Bellie was born, I got her a rocking elephant for her room and it's name is Ellie-Elephant.
My MIL snuck Bellie to The Picture People and got some really cute pictures of her so I got a great framed picture of Bellie. I cannot wait to hang it up. She really is the cutest and happiest baby.
My Aunt-IL, gave me the really cute book The Incredible Truth about Motherhood. It shows animal moms and kids with really funny comments under it. It is a great little book for any mom.
All in all, I would not change anything about the day. Well, maybe I would have made the weather warmer but that is about it. I hope all of you mom's had a nice mother's day as well.
