Mother's Day has become a favorite day of mine. I used to dread this day for many years because it was a constant reminder that I (we) were childless. That longing for someone to call me, mommy, and someone to nurture and love felt very far away. But, now it brings a whole new joy!!! I absolutely LOVE being a mom!! Nothing compares and when you have such a sweet girl as our, Harper, it can't get much better than that:) My heart aches for the women that are waiting for that moment but that wait makes it even that much more worthwhile. Harper, is our little angel and many things we have talked about between us and Harper's birth mother are signs this was HIS plan for us all along. We were meant to be parent's to our sweet girl. It amazes me all the time and brings so much joy to my heart! I'm so thankful for the wonderful relationship that we have with Harper's birth mother and how amazing it is how she helped me become a mom. Hopefully sooner than later we can add to our little family because being a mom is the best:)
My mom, me and Haper
Harper loves riding in this little wagon and pulling it around
Loves her nana
We had a vacay week and made it into a "staycation" and headed to St. Louis- waiting on the bus!
Chasing our girl because she didn't want to sit still. ha
Boy was it windy
Walking around the St. Louis Zoo
Enjoying the scenery
First swim of the year!
Grant's Farm, not sure of the goats
This girl LOVES sweets! Ate a whole doughnut!
Okay, we don't give a ton sweets, but this was vacay week so it was okay;)
Second place we visited on our "staycation" was Nashville. This B&B was designed by Southern Living...I thought that was pretty neat!
I was in love with our little cottage
Trying to get some cuddles;)
I love Harper's face in the picture
We can still take a bath in the sink
She ain't afraid of no bear
The end of a great week!!!
