FYI - it is hard to take self-portraits in a bathroom mirror when not looking directly into the view finder!
Anyway, I had a wonderful Mother's Day. Ryan picked out the sweetest gifts:
A baby carriage charm for my Pandora bracelet and a baby name book!
We are stuck on names, so this is going to come in handy! Otherwise, we spent the day laying around with our pup. Ryan had to go into work for a bit, but he got out early so we went out exploring. We hit up an upscale consignment shop just to check out the goods, and then I mentioned wanting to see Babies, (how fitting for Mother's Day, right?) so we headed to the movies to see what time it was playing. Sadly, our theater wasn't playing it, so we ended up seeing Date Night (with Steve Carell and Tina Fey) instead. I really, really wanted to see Babies, but Date Night was a good second choice. It was super funny; we were laughing the whole time.
And this time next year, I'll have a 6 month old baby - a real, live, half-a-year-old baby! That thought makes me so happy that my heart hurts... I can't wait to meet this little one. This little, tiny, lemon-size baby that consumes 90% of my daily thoughts. This little baby that has already made me a mother, and -even better - has made my wonderful husband a father.
We have so much to do in the next 25.5 weeks, and we need every second of that time.... but I cannot wait 'till November.
