A Trip to the Library

Last Friday, Parker and I ventured out to the library in Rockwall.  It is a very nice facility and I hope to spend a lot of time there in the years to come - they have such a great children's area.  Our original plan was to go to story time, but their spring season had ended and they will start back up for the summer in mid-June so we will have to try again.  They have story/activity time for 1-2 year olds on Friday mornings.

Since we were already there, we decided to stay and play and look at a few books.  Parker had such a fun time exploring, flipping through books and looking outside.  He seemed like such a big boy to me that day - pulling books off of the shelf, pushing his own stroller around the area where we were in, "talking" up a storm and just enjoying himself so much - such freedom to run around and go where he wanted.  He was so happy and excited - it was a fun time for us both.  He really enjoyed himself and I enjoyed just watching him.

Mother's Day 2013

It's hard to believe that this year was my second Mother's Day.  I spent years wondering if I would ever be a mother and now I have celebrated two special days.

What a difference a year makes!
Last year on Mother's Day, Parker was 10 days shy of turning 3 months old and this year he was about 10 days away from turning 15 months old. Even though a year has passed, two things remain the same - Parker is still one precious little boy and I sure do love being his Mommy!

Motherhood has taught me so many valuable lessons about myself and about life.  Even though I've only been in it a little over a year, it has shed a lot of light on many things. 

Being a Mom is something that I absolutely love and enjoy!  I am very grateful that in His perfect timing, God allowed me to become a Mom.  There were and are so many things I that I look forward to about being a mother.  It's a bonus when your child is as cute as can be and tons of fun. 

Being a Mom is hard work and I know it…
