A few days late... but Mother's Day this year was pretty great.
I think the holiday is meant to celebrate the little things. Sure a nice fancy gift would be nice, but I much more prefer to give and get the small thoughtful gifts and acts of kindness.
Brian and Leah did great.
Leah made some bath salt at daycare which I am LOVING! It smells awesome and gives the water a really soft feeling. I of course am LOVING baths right now too with having this achy body right now.
Sidenote: I am so eager to see the size of this baby! My guess is that she will weight a little less than Leah did at 9 lb 6 oz, but will be longer. The distance she can stretch across my belly makes me think she has super long legs! I cant wait to find out! My official guess is 8 lb 15 oz, 22 inches long.
Brian did a great job as well... I told him I did not want anything except for him to hang some pictures on the wall without complaining. They still are not up yet but he hasnt complained anything regarding what I want to do. Hopefully they will go up this weekend.
Then Sunday morning I woke up really wanting donuts so he ran to Schnucks and brought home some yummy treats and a flower for me.
Later in the day we headed to my Sister N Law's house for a nice BBQ where I took some fun pictures of Leah and my niece Jenna.
They are adorable aren't' they?
SIL, MIL, Grandmother N law?, and me looking horribly pregnant!
We pretty much live across the street from a major amusement park.
We can see the Screaming Eagle from our back deck.
We drive pass it on our way to the grocery store and daycare.
When we decided to move here we knew we would be getting season passes.
We hope to take advantage of the water park and late afternoon trips when we are bored at home.
Leah has always known what it was and that we would go "someday".
Someday = Saturday!
Leah was SO EXCITED!!
She was at first a bit overwhelmed. All the people. All the big rides.
She refused to ride anything. She just wanted to be held and watch.
After 2 hrs of walking around and watching (and this 36+ week pregnant woman trying to stop and rest on every bench possible) Brian had her watching the Log Flume.
She suddenly said she wanted to ride!!
So off Brian and her went to get inline...
I thought for sure they would return as the wait was over a half hr and she would get scared or inpatient.
But they made it and I was a proud momma!
Leah was loving life afterwards and ready to tackle another ride... a ride mommy was actually allowed on too!
The Ferris Wheel.
I was entertained taking their picture while we waited in line. It took probably 45 minutes and Leah was getting beyond tired as we were far past her nap time. Brian was exhausted from holding her constantly. The sleepy girl did not want to be put down.
She loved playing with his ears and facial hair.
my pretty girl
We headed out after the ferris wheel because Leah could barely keep her eyes open and passed out in the stroller.
If you are counting... that is 2 rides in 4 hrs....
And it was EXHAUSTING!
We hope to head back again soon, probably more in the evening, after dinner when the crowds have started to leave.
Maybe we will even get to enjoy the water park just once before baby Emily makes her arrival too!
