My First Mother's Day

What a blessing yesterday was. I have a whole new perspective on Mother's Day now that I am a momma. Several times yesterday I felt blessed to the point of tears coming to my eyes. My sweet baby boy's 5 month birthday just happened to fall on the same day as Mother's Day. Oh, I can't put into words how blessed I am. I am so thankful for the miracle of life and love. I have a precious wonderful husband and a baby that is amazing beyond words. What more could a Momma ask for?! Thank you Lord Jesus!

Again, I see God's hand at work in my life. I pray continually that I won't miss any of Hunter's first while I am working. This weekend, I was home for two precious moments. Friday night while I was sitting at my computer, I hear this sweet little raspberry noise and look down at the vibrating chair and Mr. H, with very sleepy eyes, is blowing wet, slobbery raspberries and having a great time doing it! What a sweet and silly thing! His cheeks get full and his little lips pucker up and he goes to town just blowing away!

Hunter has a new favorite game. His daddy has taught him to play peek-a-boo. Hunt just laughs and laughs his big old belly laugh and I just sit and giggle right along. At first, Jimmy would cover Hunter's face with his blanket and ask "Where's Hunter?" followed by pulling the blanket down and saying "Peek-a-boo!" and Hunter just laughs! Now, Mr. H covers his own face and pulls the blanket down and waits and watches for us to respond. What a fun little game! You can't beat a Mr. H smile!

What a wonderfully blessed weekend. Thank you Father God for your infinite blessings. Again I say, I am blessed beyond measure!
