first mothers day

I really only had one request for my first Mothers Day. All I asked of Peter was to watch the baby in the morning so I could make breakfast. I wanted to try out a new recipe, uninterrupted. (This one. But with strawberries. Because they are far superior to blueberries. And they are all I had)
(p.s. It was really good)

When I got out of the shower, the table was already set and coffee was already made. So sweet.

And waiting for me in the box was a Kate necklace. (from Lisa Leonard. Love her stuff.)
So very sweet of Peter. I love it so much.

The rest of the day was spent at church, lunch with family, and a quiet afternoon at home - complete with a nap for this mama.

Note to self....when wanting to take a picture with the baby, do not wait till mid afternoon. She will no longer be in a picture taking mood and she will flat out refuse to be happy and look at the camera.

This is literally the best picture of the day.

The other 15 look more like this...

I am so very thankful for my Kate. No matter how our family grows over the years, she will always be the one who made me a mother.
