Happy Mother's Day

My first Mother's Day was great! Howie got up before I did to feed Aislinn. When I got up he had flowers and balloons waiting for me in the living room. He had my coffee ready for me and then he made me pancakes. After Aislinn took a nap we all went to New Canaan to walk around and shopped a bit. When we got home Howie grilled some steaks and for dessert he had a huge chocolate chip cookie with "Happy Mother's Day" written on it. It was exactly what I wanted.

I also packed up Aislinn's 0-3 month clothes. I was a bit weepy because she's not that tiny little newborn baby that I brought home anymore. My little baby is growing up quickly. I do love seeing her do new things and grow, I just wish I could also rewind just to hold on to my itty bitty baby. Putting the next size clothes in her drawers and closet was a little bit exciting too. There are so many cute things for her to wear I just can't wait to see her in everything! Now I'm talking about her like she's a doll. Oh well.

I am still slacking a bit with my posting. I can't seem to get things together here. I had a routine that recently changed and I need to get back on track. We just finished doing a lot of cleaning last night and finished putting pictures in frames so that we can FINALLY put pictures up on the walls. I've only been trying to do that for 3 1/2 years! Now I should have more time to post since I'm not trying to clean up.

Well, my mother and brother-in-law should be here soon so I should probably wrap this up. My MIL is bringing baked ziti! YUM! Here are some pictures from Mother's Day and one extra of Aislinn with Eeyore.

For some reason Picsa's red eye reduction won't work so it looks like Aislinn has devil eyes. I was also looking at the way I'm sitting and wondering why that didn't hurt my knee.

She is such a cutie! I know what you mean about packing up the clothes. It is bittersweet because it is great that they are growing so well, but this may be it for us and the next newborns will be of my kids...strange to contemplate isn't it!
