Today was my first Mother’s Day being the mom of two kiddos. It was also Gabrielle’s first time in church. However, we got there almost right when services started so I didn’t get a picture of her in church. She stayed with us and slept through the entire service. After church, we headed up to LC to take advantage of the flowers recently planted for graduation so we would have some nice photo surroundings. I didn’t realize how much she has grown in the last few weeks- her little bloomers fit much better now than when we brought her home from the hospital. It also gave me a chance to wear my “corsage” Sam made for the Mother’s Day breakfast at EBC- it was his handprint cut out and rolled to look like a flower. I absolutely love it!

I love my “littles”

I love my mom! She is amazing! If I can be even half the mom she has been, I will consider myself successful. 🙂

Travis decided to take a few artsy pics…

Sam felt the need to have a huge stick in the pictures with Mum Jubie and Dad Buddy.

We attempted pictures of Gabrielle for her birth announcement. The lying on the back pose just looked awkward.

We then rolled her onto her side and, success was ours! Now to decide which one I like most… I am so thankful that this beautiful little girl is a part of our family.

Finally, we “bravely” allowed Sam to hold his sis for some pictures. She still doesn’t seem to like it too much.

He won’t stop kissing her. 🙂
