So yesterday was a wonderful day. First thing in the morning I was wished a Happy MOther's Day by my three beautiful lil men. They proudly gave me their cards and plants they made for me in school. Daddy did a great job and got me the Flip Mino. My children will now be videotaped every second of their life! Actually, it's really great for catching those spur of the moment moments. It's turns on in second and records instantly. Downloads to the computer in a flash and I can create movies.
I am really excited because I love to document Cormac's speech progress and with this I will be able to record so much more of his speech. Now I will be carrying my camera and my Flip everywhere I go!
I hosted a party at our house. It was exhausting but worth it. The boys LOVE having their cousins over along with their aunts and uncles, meema and pop pop and grandma. They played HARD for many hours and were so tired. They slept late this morning. I had to wake them up or we wouldn't have made it to school in time. This afternoon we ALL took a nap including me. They went in at 1pm and didn't wake until close to 5pm. I slept from about 2:30-5pm. What an awesome way to spend the afternoon.
My Mom and Richie came over along with both my sisters and their families. Grandma Uncle Cormac were here for the celebration too! Uncle Cormac was in charge of pushing the boys on the swings. You should have seen what a nervous wreck he was while doing it! My kids have no fear and just keep saying "higher, higher". He was freaking out!
I waited a long time to be a Mom. Now, having three, well almost four children, I can't believe how lucky I am. My boys are so sweet and good. They make every day enjoyable. I always imagined what it would be like to have a family of my own but honestly, my real life surpasses any dreams I ever had. I am truly blessed and I count my blessings every day. I have learned in life not to take each day for granted. I try and enjoy each day to it's fullest. Not always possible but I make the effort. At least on Mother's Day we get to focus purely on the love we have for our children and our Moms! I hope you all had a great day.
We only had one set back the whole day. One of Cormac's T-mics from his implant was lost in our yard. Can you say needle in a haystack??? I have searched for hours between yesterday and today. I offered a reward to my nephews if they found it. No luck. I have no idea how the thing would fall off his implant. Very strange. I guess it's a good thing it's only the mic and not his entire processor. But still, it aggravates me to death because I KNOW it's our their somewhere and am sure it will turn up some day in the future.
Ok, now for the pictures.....
