Mother's Day and Motherhood

Garrett is a very thoughtful person. Even when we were engaged, I have always received a Mother's Day gift from him, even though I wasn't a mother yet. This Mother's Day there was a gift, but this time with more meaning because soon I will be a mother.

For Mother's Day Garrett got me a Canon Rebel camera - something I have been dying to have since we've been married. With a babe on the way, we knew we wanted something great to capture all the memories. I am so excited to take pictures and maybe I'll even put some on this blog...(since I never do). Garrett also gave me a manicure and pedicure which I can't wait to take advantage of. I never thought that being pregnant meant I would let myself go so this gift is much needed.

I cannot wait to be a mother. I sat in church yesterday and looked around at all of the women who were celebrating Mother's Day. I loved seeing the older generation walk into church with their corsages pinned to their dresses. I remember my grandma always wearing one on mother's day that my grandpa had bought for her. I loved seeing an elderly sister walk into church with a big hat on with feathers, which she wore the entire 3 hours of church. I loved seeing the little babies looking over their mother's shoulder, something that I can't wait to embrace.

So with my camera in hand and a new manicure and pedicure, it looks like I'm getting closer and closer to really experiencing Mother's Day, but more importantly - MOTHERHOOD!
