Happy Mother's Day!

I had the best first Mother's Day! Nathan cooked me breakfast (including Starbucks tea and flowers), then my mom and I went to Bellevue to have fancy facials. It was wonderful!! At the spa, we received plush robes and slippers to wear and relax in front of a fireplace, where we then proceeded to get warm foot soaks in their relaxation room. Next, our hour long facials (you wouldn't think someone could massage your face for an hour, but let me tell you, they can and it's fabulous)! Next, I took a Swiss and Steam Shower, where 20+ jets spray me from all around (Nate, can you install one of these in our bathroom remodel next weekend)? My mom and I received pedicures and manicures next, it was a nice relaxing afternoon! Thank you mom, you are not only a wonderful mom, but you are my best friend and I love you.

Thank you Nathan, for giving me the day off and staying home with Jacob and cleaning up the house for me (even doing laundry)! I love you so much and I am truly blessed to be married to you.

Remembering being pregnant with Jacob, I knew I would love my son with all my heart, but I honestly had no idea what that entailed until he was born. I didn't even know this kind of love existed; Jacob warms my heart each and every moment, he is the best Mother's Day gift - I love you Jacob Bailey, you are the best thing that ever happened to me and I am proud to be your mom.

I tried finding a picture of Jacob and I to post, but guess who is always behind the camera lens?!? Nathan, it's your turn to start taking pictures. So, here is a old picture of Jacob and I, he was about 5 days old. Geez, I look exhausted!

Just stopping by your blog. Was going to just read a bit, then got caught up in your wonderful story of Mother's Day. It sounded wonderful! Great mom, husband and baby... Have a good one! KC
