Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. And to any moms waiting on their child to come home, I know how difficult it is and I hope they are home very soon.

My thoughts today more than ever are on Gabriella's birthmother and how grateful I am for the loving choice she made that made me a mother.

I had a nice relaxing day today. We went to church and then came home and had lunch and some pool time.

Getting a picture with everyone looking good proved to be quite elusive.

There's a lady in church that trains puppies to be guide dogs and there's always one in church. Gabriella wasn't too sure about her as the puppy was a little excited today.

I love this picture of Gabriella and Grandma.

Take one.

Take two.

Take three. As good as it gets.

All ready to go swimming. Too bad this suit was too big and didn't work out. I'm still searching for something that will give her freedom but keep her floating upright.

Enjoying her sand table. She just loves this thing. She really doesn't use the water part of it much, but loves pouring the sand back and forth.

Happy Belated Mommy's Day!!

Ok - LOVE the pic of you and Miss G kissing - that is so sweet!!!

And the water and sand table?? That's the same one we got for Alex for his birthday!! He also really likes it. (although the weather has been so sketchy that he hasn't been able to play with it much)

Oh - and I still have Christmas cards in a drawer in an end table in the family room. Alex will go over and look at them. Whenever he sees Miss G's picture he goes, "Ohh - Gabellla - I like it" and then he kisses her picture. We better watch out!! :)

Glad you had a nice and relaxing day. I love the photos of you and her, especially the kissy one! So sweet. The photo of the three of you is very nice too.

We are still waiting for a nice day to set up Savannah's sand table. We have a wet and cold May. There is some terrible storm coming in today and there may even be snow.
