My First Mother’s Day

I had a wonderful first Mother’s Day! I woke to find a framed picture of me and Paxton lying in the Pack N Play beside him that said “Happy First Mother’s Day, Thanks for being my Mommy -Paxton.” Precious! I even wore my baby blue cardigan in honor of being a mama to a baby boy!

Paxton and I went to church early with daddy this morning! It went well, I fed him once we arrived at church and John David was able to hold him for awhile before the first service began. I went to small group this morning (for the first time in almost 2 years since I taught pre-school Sunday School before Paxton!) Since I had Paxton with me, I spent about half the time trying to keep him from being a distraction since he was a little fussy. After small group I fed him and then he was still a little fussy so I sat out in the hallway and watched the rest of the sermon on the hall TV.

As soon as we arrived home from church we took a few pictures outside.

I love this baby! And look at Paxton’s hair…it’s brown but looks reddish in the sun, just like mine! He is his daddy made over but he gets his hair from me!!

I could kiss him all day…on his forehead, his sweet nose, his chubby cheeks!

Our beautiful rose bushes that my Grandpa and Grandmother Clark gave me in honor of Paxton’s birth! They are beautiful and smell so good!

We had a lovely lunch of grilled hamburgers and fries followed by ice cream! Yum!

After lunch we watched some TV and Paxton was fussy. His daddy could not soothe him, only me. I think he is realizing that I am his mama! I held him for about 2 hours and then after his feeding he was still fussy so I wrapped him in the Moby Wrap.

Loving on Paxton in the Moby!

He fell asleep in the Moby and slept about 2 hours! I was able to snuggle my baby close, eat dinner, talk to my mom and blog while he was snoozing! I really love babywearing!

And then we had a fabulous dinner! John David grilled hot wings! Oh my goodness…they were not only gorgeous, they were delicious (slightly spicy but still good!) I joked that he fixed me “man food” on Mother’s Day (hamburgers and hot wings.) Of course I am the mother of a boy so I suppose the “man food” is fitting.
