First Mom's Day

My first Mother's Day as a mom was wonderful!

Derek decided we would celebrate our Mother's day on Saturday, so Saturday morning I opened a letter from Wyatt (Derek really wrote it - it was cute), and found out my Mother's Day gift was a trip to the salon to get my hair done!

Off we went. I decided that I was going to get some highlights in my hair. This is a huge deal to me, because I've never colored my hair before. Not once.

Before . . .


It was a little scary, but I really like the way it turned out! It looks pretty natural, like it's from the sun. It'll be fun to have a fresh look for the summertime!

After that Derek let me buy some new makeup and we went shopping for books, and we went out to lunch at a mexican restaurant.

Then we came home and spent a lovely afternoon just hanging around the house. It was a fun and relaxing Mother's Day celebration for me - thanks for planning such a special day for us, Derek (and Baby Wyatt)! My two guys are the sweetest.

On Sunday we went out to breakfast with my wonderful mom and grandma and the rest of the family.

My mom and dad gave me a Mother's Day card too for my first Mother's Day as a mom, and my brother (the one in the hat next to Derek) surprised me and gave me some roses, which I thought was thoughtful!

After breakfast we went to church, then we went home and Wyatt and I took an afternoon nap (which was absolutely lovely).

Derek's mom came to our house for dinner, and we played Triple Yatzee. I won.

It was a wonderful first Mother's Day, and I'm so glad I got to spend it with my husband and sweet baby boy!

This time last year, I wasn't pregnant, and I had no idea when or if I would be. Within the next month the Lord answered our prayers, and I got pregnant with our sweet baby Wyatt.

The Lord's plans really are the best, and I am so grateful that He decided to entrust us with our boy. He is a precious gift, and I never want to forget what the Lord has done for us.

Your hair looks amazing! I am getting mine cut tomorrow. Nothing like a fresh haircut to make you feel good and renewed. I love the picture of you and Wyatt napping. Happy belated Mother's Day to a very beautiful mommy inside and out. Have a great week!
