My First Mother's Day!

This weekend has been one of the busiest since Gabe was born. Friday night my mom and her roommate/best friend Faye came down and then my best friend was in Florida from Canada so she came over with her sweet baby girl (and Gabe's future wife:) We ordered pizza and just had a good time together.

Gabriel slept from 8:30-6:30 Friday night (SCORE!) and then mom and I worked in the yard while Faye watched him. I worked hard digging out some large plants that just had to go from our back yard. After we showered and ate some lunch, Jason stayed home with our babe and we ladies went out and about for a while. We went to our new yogurt place inside Books-a-Million called Yogurt Mountain...DELISH! I had coconut mixed with triple chocolate and put Reese's and shaved coconut on top....Heaven in a cup I tell you.

Then Saturday night we had our baby dedication. It was so beautiful. There were 6 babies that were dedicated and Jason's whole family pretty much came! Gabe interacted with his cousin Preston who is only 5 days older for the first time and it was all sorts of cuteness. He got a Baby's First Keepsake Bible with his name engraved on it. They really made it special for us. Love my church!

Sunday morning, we went to early service and then after the babies were introduced in the 2nd service, Jason and I went to his mom's for some lunch. We got home around 2ish and then left aroun 3:00 to go to his brother's apartment to swim. Gabe was put in the pool for the first time and LOVED it! We lathered him up with 50 SPF and only kept him out for about 20 minutes but he loved the water...just like his mama. Can't wait to take him to the beach this summer!!! After swimming, we all went out to ABC Pizza in Plant City for Mother's Day with Jason's mom. We got home around 7:30, were all in bed by 9ish and Gabriel slept until 5:15. Love that he's sleeping thru the night now!! And he is so happy in the morning.

We changed his formula from Enfamil to Similac Sensitive on Friday and he like a new baby! So happy and smiley and I actually got him to LAUGH this morning. He's actually sitting in my lap as I write this just staring intently at what I'm doing. Love this sweet boy!

My first Mother's Day was wonderful because I spent it with my hubby and smiley son! Love being a mommy! And my kids were great today....which was shocking. Even my worst student was on task and polite today!!! Hope the rest of the week goes by just as well!!
