Happy Mother's Day... To Me!

My First Mother's Day... So crazy, wonderful and surreal that even though she's not here in my arms, I am daily keeping her a live and growing a person inside of me, and that's the first step in motherhood. I am so blessed to be feeling so incredibly wonderful and normal so far. I'm 5 and a half months along and sometimes I forget I'm even pregnant! Then nature calls for the 15th time today and I'm reminded about what's going on inside of me... :)

My Mother's Day was more than I could've ever hoped for...

This is what was waiting for me when I came downstairs....


Isn't he the sweetest? He bought the stickers and the frame and put it together with my craft stuff all by himself. I'm so proud and feel so loved he go through all that effort for me.

One craigslist ad, $85 Dollars, a pile of clorox wipes, a Mr. Clean Magic eraser and some borrowed nuts and bolts later.....

We have a crib


It's not the EXACT one we were planning on getting, but it was $65 cheaper, came with a mattress and a drawer underneath for bonus storage space. We only had to drive a mile and a half down the road to get it. I'm not complaining one bit. 

Craigslist for the win.

Best 1st Mother's day! Couldn't ask for a more well behaved child (is that the only year I'll be able to say that honestly? ;) ) And a more sweet and wonderful husband and father for our sweet Baby El

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mom's out there!


  1. Sounds like a very nice Mother's Day! Way to go Ryan with the craftiness. :) Hooray for one more big purchase closer to a finished nursery too. Very exciting. I know you are going to be a fantastic mother. Happy Mother's Day!

  2. What a steal on that cute crib! So adorable!
