Mother's Day!

Dear Alex,

I have had the most wonderful day. It started at 6:30, and it might have been nice to sleep a little longer, but I was anxious to start the day with my baby boy. Daddy even got up with us too! Daddy made us pancakes, and then I went to church to thank God for you! When I got home, you were there with a present and cards. You and Daddy bought me a beautiful watch. I love it. We spent the afternoon at Mark and Peggy's. We had a great time. You played so nicely with Mason and Preslee. Then we went to Grandma and Pop's for dinner. You had fun playing with your cousins. You were such a good boy all day. I am so proud of you! We came home and read you books and said our prayers. And as we put you in your bed and tucked you in "like a mummy," you looked up at me and said, "Sing 'You are My Sunshine.'" I sang to you, just as I have since my first Mother's Day - four years ago - when you were growing inside my belly. Now your baby sister is growing and kicking in there. I just know you are going to be such a caring, protective big brother. You already take such good care of me. You always give me the best hugs and kisses! She is going to be so lucky to have you, just as I am.

I love you "this much." You bring so much joy into my life. I thank God for you every second of every day. I have always wanted to be a momma, and you made this dream some true. Thank you.

Your Momma

What a great Mom story! I loved it. I'm sure Alex makes all your days special! He's a great child, with great parents. It was fun to spend Mother's Day with all of you!
