My First Mother's Day

My first Mother's Day was pretty typical for a Sunday morning.  We woke up and had orange rolls, my favorite and go ready for church that starts at 11.  Cory had to be there at 10:30 to help set up the sacrament so Lydi and I were on our own for a little bit which gave us some time for a quick photo op. :)

As usual, I wasn't at church 5 minutes before LJ decides she needed a snack so it was off to the mothers lounge.  I feel like I practically live in there on Sundays.  Oh well.  After we came home from church, we had a quick lunch and then the three of us snuggled up for a nice Sunday nap.  It seriously was the best! After we woke up, we headed over to Cory's parents to celebrate with his mom.  We had gone out to eat with my mom on Saturday.  We had a really good time seeing everyone and Lydi even let people hold her which she sometimes will not do.  She will only let my dad hold her for about 90 seconds before her little lip comes out and she starts crying.  Luckily that was not the case for this gathering!  Cory's mom loved the digital picture frame we all got for her.  I had the best time adding pictures to it!  I can't believe how much the kids have grown in the past few years!  They really enjoyed seeing pictures of themselves flashing up on the screen too!  On our way home we listened to a new lullaby CD I bought LJ at the recommendation of NieNie.  It's called Baby Mine and it really is the best.  I highly recommend it as well.  So such a simple but wonderful day!  I love being a mom and I feel like it has really helped me to appreciate all the simple, wonderful things in my life.  Lydia Jane is such a treasure.  I really love everything about her.  She is the best blessing Heavenly Father has ever given me and I am so thankful for her!  She has taught me so much about being a mother already and I look forward to many more learning experiences with our sweet girl!

Sunday Funnies

Some of my favorite snapshots from this week.

Our girl is all smiles in the mornings. I love that about her!

Why is talking so HARD???

I think she looks like she is about to attack someone with a flying kick. Watch out, our girl is fierce!

She laughs at Cory all the time and it is adorable!

More kisses?!?

Ready to rock and roll.

She has started sucking on her bottom lip and I have been trying to capture this face for a couple of weeks. I think it is too cute!

Sleeping Buddha baby.

What to do during a 1am feeding???

Make picture collages from my hundreds of pictures of LJ on my phone! I just downloaded the Pic Stitch app and I love it! Combine it with Instagram and you gems like these:

Super cute, right?! :)
