Happy Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day. I not only had a great 1st Mother’s Day…I had a great weekend. My Mother’s Day started Friday evening when Brad gave me a card. In the card he wrote the following…

Yep that's right...it says "I'll get up with Cain during the night all weekend". WOW! What a great present for a new mom! I haven't slept two full nights in over 3 months. Well, I guess I should rephrase that...I hadn't slept two full nights in over 3 months until this weekend. It was heavenly!

But wouldn't you know, Cain decided he would sleep through the night Saturday night. We put him in his crib at 8pm and he didn't wake up until 5:45a.m. This is the longest he has ever slept. And instead of Brad having to go feed him...Brad just put his pacifier in his mouth and Cain went right back to sleep and slept until 8a.m.

Cain sleeping peacefully! Why doesn't he sleep this long during the night when I'm getting up to take care of him?

I was hoping this was the start of Cain sleeping through the night but of course he woke up last night around 2:30 wanting a bottle and again at 6a.m.

But back to my Mother's Day weekend...when I woke up Saturday morning I had a card on my night stand from Sadie and then on Sunday morning I woke up to a card from Cain. How fun!! Cain's card also included this present for me...

A gift certificate for a steam shower, facial, & a one hour massage!!!!

Again, what a GREAT present for a new mom! I told Brad that he was already teaching Cain how to be a wonderful husband one day. Isn't that what we are supposed to do...lead by example?

Sunday afternoon we decided we were ready to get out of the house as a family. Since we really can't go anywhere with Cain where he may be exposed to germs we decided to take him on a walk. We went to a park near our house and enjoyed the pretty day. I think Brad and I enjoyed the walk more than Cain considering he slept most of the walk.


Our attempt at taking a family photo. What a horrible attempt it was!


You over there Mommy?


I decided I would try carrying Cain. I guess he was pretty comfy because he fell asleep right away.


Having a relaxing Sunday walk!


That little guy can be pretty heavy to carry up all those stairs. I need to come walk in this park more often with Cain.


Perfect Mother's Day!


Cain finally decided to wake up and enjoy some of our walk. And yes...those are scratches on his little head. I guess his mommy needs to clip his nails again.

This will be a Mother's Day I will never forget. I am so thankful for Brad and for Cain and to have been given the opportunity to be a Mommy!

What an awesome weekend! I am sure you will never forget it. Keep up the running. Mine haven't been much fun yet but I plan to kick it into high gear in the coming weeks. Maybe we should title the t-shirts "RACIN CAIN"
