Nothin' Else Like It.

It seems just like yesterday, that we brought a tiny little guy home. He was so small, that the infant size car seat swallowed him up. All of the little socks, I swore would be too small, kept falling off because his legs were too skinny.
I still have a hard time believing that I am a "Mom"! Its strange because I think of myself as a kid still (although, I am not). Being a mom is the most challenging job I've ever had, and I'm sure other mom's would agree. Losing sleep, constant cleaning, wiping, crying....shall I go on?

Something that I find so funny is, that whenever I feel very tired of being "mommy"; something special happens that tells me why its all worth it. Everyday, Liam is getting bigger and more independent. He can be more defiant, but he can be sweeter and more loving. This morning he ran in shouting "Happy Mother's day!" It was so special to hear those words from him. These pictures are from a couple of weeks ago. We were outside, and he was running around. At some point he came running and said, " I have a flower for you, I have a flower for you!"
I think these are some of the prettiest flowers I have ever seen.

I would like to say "Happy Mothers' Day" to all the hard-working Mom's and to my Mom, who is too far away for us to see today. I pray all of you will have a wonderful day, and that God bless you and your families.
