Happy Mother's Day 2011

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

I cannot believe that I have been Amari's mommy for the past year and 2 months. He is so precious and I feel so blessed that he choose me to be his mother.

Today has been such a wonderful and productive day! I got sleep in tell 8:00 a.m., did my morning yoga routine, and Trev and Amari took a little trip to the store to buy sparkling water and raspberry muffins for me. My gift from the two wonderful men in my life this year was a red rose bush and a $15.00 Starbucks gift card.


We had brunch at the Country Club with Papa, Nana, Grammy B, Grandpa, Auntie J, Great Auntie Pam, and cousin Bay. The spread was amazing, so much delicious foods to choose from. Amari was rather hilarious during the meal. He stuffed his little belly with potatoes, sausage, strawberries, melon, and a pastry that Grammy B gave him. The little dude has a huge appetite! It is strange to think that last Mother's Day he was drinking breast milk every 2-3 hours and was so, so, so tiny!



 This was our first photo together. I was totally out of it from having my C-section.
And to be honest, I don't even remember taking this picture with him... 
What a beautiful bundle of joy.
I never knew I could love another person so much until I became a mother. 
Home sweet home, exhausted, overwhelmed, and scared out of my mind. 
We had barely been home for an hour and I cried every five minutes. 
I blame it on the baby blues and the unknowing... LOL

I love this photo taken by Diana Sell at Diana Sell Photography
Look at Amari's hair... he looks like a little old man with all his bald spots, LOL. 
So adorable. 

After brunch, we headed outside of the Country Club to take some photo's on the dock that overlooks the Puget Sound. Olympia is such a beautiful city and the view was lovely. After spending some time taking pictures we all went our separate ways and Trev and I went home to tiddy up the house before he went to work.  Amari napped and I swear he had a food drunk going on cause he ate too much food at brunch! =P The rest of the afternoon was great. Amari and I had our mommy and baby time, he practiced standing up from a sitting position and walking (even though he's only taking 3-5 steps at the moment before falling down). He's learning though and that is all that matter's. Amari walking is probably the best gift that he could have given me for Mother's Day besides his sweet sloppy open-mouth kisses! =D

Food drunk Amari!

Grammy B and A.J. 
He loves his Grandma!

LOL, Amari kicked Daddy and this picture happened to be the only picture that Trev had his eyes open in. 

Amari and Mommy!
Look how gray out it is. Got to love the Pacific Northwest. 
It still feels like winter even though it's May...

Amari and Nana.
