My first Mother's Day, as a mom, was calm and family oriented. We had lunch with Sean's family and dinner with my family. My mom and I had fun with a selfie stick, even though there were many people in the house who could have taken our picture. But where's the fun in that? :)
Being a mom hasn't really set in yet for me. Maybe not until Javi actually speaks and calls out "mama" to me. But I'm enjoying it :) I love the smiles, and the giggles, and don't even mind the 4AM wake ups. (I mean, I could do without them...) I love witnessing milestones, singing nursery rhymes, and playing peekaboo. I love the face he makes when he tries new foods, the way he runs his tongue over his BRAND NEW tooth, how he rolls and scoots and climbs and tumbles. I love the way he hugs me, stares at my face like I'm the one who's brand new, and the way he rubs his eyes when he's tired. I love that he wakes up with a smile every day, chases the cats, and trusts me to catch him when he dives off the bed. He's my most favorite and even though I don't feel like a mom yet, I can't wait for the feeling to catch up with me.
