Happy Mother's Day!

"Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,

I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night
Before I was a Mom,

I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep
Before I was a Mom,

I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy
Before I was a Mom,

I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful momma's out there and especially to my momma, who I hope to become more like one day. :) Had a super special day with my little love who made me a momma and Luke. They surprised me with a new dress they had picked out all on their own for me to wear to church. Loved it! Avery made me the sweetest little pictures and cards and she was so proud. After a relaxing pedicure, they took me to my fav place to eat. It was a great day! Being a momma to Avery and Adalyn is my dream come true and the best job in the world!

not a good pic but the only one I got today!
