This last week seemed to just drag on. I had been feeling overwhelmed and my pregnancy hormones were leaving me a hot emotional mess. Housework just kept piling up and the boys even seemed a little off their regular routines. But I was continually comforted by Lennox’s movements. I love him more every day, I think of him and what blessings he will bring our family. Sometimes I just can’t wait to hold him. But I am thankful that there are no signs of him coming too early and I’m feeling great overall.
After a overwhelmingly emotional week, Mother’s Day weekend spent with my family was just what I needed. So thankful to be able to make these memories with all of them with our boys.
Jameson was all smiles when we arrived. Within minutes of getting to my parents house Jameson was in his diaper, enjoy the hot sun and playing in the fountains.
First nap in our Babyhawks Oh Mei.
I love how our dogs are so drawn to babies. Kingsley enjoyed chasing them around.
First night ended beautifully.
Jewel loved Grandma and Grandpa’s property. We were so impressed with how well she did with all that traveling entails. So happy she’s apart of our family.
I have so much love for my mother. Even more blessed to have her as a Grandma for our boys.
One of our favorite spots.
One of my favorite joys of being a mother is to make memories with my boys similar to the best memories I have as a child. After dinner we took some extra fries down to the pier and fed the seagulls. My parents and I used to do this every other weekend.
My Mother’s Day was the best yet. Felt all the love, being surrounded by my family was wonderful. At some of my favorite foods and there were smiles all around. There is just something rejuvenating about being around people who completely see you, for your strengths and faults and love you uncondiontally anyway.
Sunday night Jameson fell asleep while feeling Lennox’s movements. Would wake up every so often, lean up and kiss my belly. It brought me to happy tears. I love that he is so caring and loving. It’s just such a beautiful experience to be a mother. To love and be loved.
Our trip ended with a stop at Trader Joes. My pregnancy heart is so happy. Picked up some of my favorites.
