Happy Mother’s Day

Steve, MJ, and Ty turned Mother’s Day into Mommy Week – I was so spoiled!  I received surprise gifts the three days I was at work from each of my boys...

On Wednesday, I received these beautiful flowers from MJ:

On Thursday, Ty sent me these delicious chocolate-covered strawberries from Shari’s Berries:

On Friday, my loving husband sent this gorgeous bouquet of flowers (baby #3 hasn’t figured out how to use daddy’s credit card yet)!

Each gift had a sweet, precious note attached.  I couldn’t have felt more special and loved. 

On Saturday night, MJ woke up with a terrible earache – he was so miserable he couldn’t go back to sleep.  Steve took him to urgent care Sunday morning, and he was diagnosed with a double ear infection…I felt horrible for him.  My sweet husband stayed home with the kids so I could go to mass.  We spent the rest of our rainy Mother’s Day relaxing and enjoying quality time at home together…it was just perfect.

MJ’s preschool had Muffins for Moms last week as well- we had a wonderful time celebrating all of the mommies!

Three weeks left until I receive the precious gift of becoming a mother for the third time.  It’s hard to believe it is so close.  Steve and I ran in our neighborhood’s annual 5K this weekend.  I’m not sure which is harder- running a very hilly course pushing a double stroller with over 65 pounds of kids inside (which Steve did) or running it 9 months pregnant!  haha

And to our moms - thank you for being the extraordinary women that you are.  We are thankful every day that you continue to be such a big part of our lives and the lives of our children.  We are beyond blessed.

Baby Moon

Steve had a business trip to Barbados two weeks ago, and all of the wives were invited to go.  I was a little worried about international travel (I was 33 weeks at the time), but my OB gave me her blessing to tag along.  I know my life is going to be crazy in a few weeks with three little ones, so I figured I should just go and enjoy it.  I am soooo glad that I went- we had such a wonderful time!

We went out to a few fabulous restaurants with the group, and spent the rest of the time relaxing on the beach (when Steve was out of his meetings).  I actually read a couple of books and allowed myself the luxury of taking a nap (or two).

Steve even tried paddle boarding (I just watched - my center of gravity is completely off right now!)

Our WONDERFUL parents watched the kids while we were gone; Steve’s parent’s took the first half and my parent’s took the second.  MJ and Ty had a blast- I don’t think they even missed us!  haha

My office threw me a surprise baby shower last week – they had all of my favorite foods (Mellow mushroom pizza, Jimmy John subs and cake)!  They showered me with diapers, wipes, and a brand new video monitor!  I feel so blessed to be a part of this practice.
