Wordless Wednesday: My First Mother's Day

By May 11, 2011 , ,

Happy Mother's Day!

It's an amazing thing being a mom. An experience better than I could imagine ... one that has changed my life forever. Since Baby RayRay entered this world, I have found a deeper understanding of my purpose in life - no longer do I define myself soley by what I can accomplish in life. Life is so much bigger now than all about me. I am so lucky to have a amazing mom that raised me - if I do half as great as she did - I know I can be a great mom too.

And I have so much respect for my other mommy friends that can balance it all - the farm, the family, a full-time job and oh yea their sanity! Special mommy day shoutouts gotta go out to all of my hard-working, amazing farm mom friends - Heather @ 3 Kids and Lots of Pigs, Amy @ Two Maids a Milking, Leah @ Beyer Beware, Jeanette @ Fencerow to Fencerow, Cris @ Goodeness Gracious, Jent @ From my Front Porch, Lana @ Walking the Off Beaten Path, Katie @ On the Banks of Sqauw Creek, Denise @ Who's the Grown Up and Katie @ Pinke Post!

I have enjoyed celebrating Mother's Day with my mom every year, but this year carried some extra special meaning since it's the first one where I became the mommy to be celebrated. Big D really did well too - we went up to the lake for a cookout with his family on Saturday and on Sunday - he took me out to lunch and shopping! Literally, he spent the whole weekend with me - and since we farm - that is a very special occasion, indeed!

Play time with Daddy!

Family pic ... see the lake behind us. Too cold and rainy to go out, but still a great time!

Happy Mother's Day Mommy!

My little Gerber baby! We had a fun little photo shoot outside on Sunday - she's so cute I just can't stop taking photos!
