My first Mother's Day

6:00 AM - Drake fussing in his crib. Jason goes in and gives him his pacifier.

6:45 AM - Drake fussing again. Jason goes back in and finds Drake on his BELLY! (He was on his back at 6am.) He's swaddled and definitely can't get back over so he is not happy.

6:47 AM - I go to see him and find a beautiful flower arrangement, cards from Drake and a gift certificate for a mani, pedi, and massage! yeah!
7:00 AM - Nurse Drake, eat breakfast

8:30 AM - Drake goes down for a nap (mom and dad do, too!)

10:00 AM - Drake wakes everyone up, dad feeds Drake, and we're in a mad rush to get ready for church.

10:40 AM - Leave for church.

11:00 AM - Church with our friends for their daughter's dedication.

12:30 PM - Lunch at our friend's house.

1:00 PM - Feed Drake

2:30 PM - Pick up Culver's ice cream on the way home from our friend's house; Drake falls asleep.

3:00 PM - Everyone takes a nap (again :-))

4:00 PM - Drake wakes up to be fed...mom is still half asleep in the chair.

5:30 PM - Take a few pictures with Drake.
6:30 PM - Drake gets a bath and bottle, and he's asleep by 7:00 PM.

The rest of the night was spent watching TV, surfing the internet, and waiting on our pizza!

It was a beautiful day, and I feel so blessed to have spent it with the son God has given us. After 5 years of waiting to be called a mother (or mommy or momma or mom), this day is finally here.

I can't say all of this without saying that so many other momma's in waiting were on my mind yesterday. I pray that God is holding you tightly and that you will get your miracle baby soon!!

Happy Mother's Day! It sounds like you had a great day. I'm so happy for you.

We are taking a much needed break. I'm thinking the end of summer we might do a frozen transfer. I'll keep you posted.

Take Care!
