Happy Momma's Day!

For my first Mother's Day, I'd have to say it was pretty good! Elah was a good girl, of course, she ALWAYS is right? :) Boogie and I headed over to my mom's house around 8:30am, J had to work (I'll talk about that in a minute), and we just hung out and enjoyed spending time with her Nene and Papaw. I have a feeling that many weekends will be spent with them in the next few months! Why is that you ask? J started a new schedule at work... so now he works from 5am-8pm on Saturdays and Sundays, 5am-10am on Mondays and Thursdays. Basically, he's gone all weekend and home pretty much all week... not to shabby if you ask me. It does make for a long weekend for me (and him of course), but it's worth it to have him home more.

Mom and I worked on my new woven wrap today! It's not at all the color I expected it to be, but pretty nonetheless! It's a greenish blue color, almost the color of doctor's scrubs I guess! I'm hoping to go by tomorrow so we can decide how long I want it! I'm so excited to get it on and take pictures of the finished product!

Sitting here, I was thinking about how wonderful it is to be a momma. A year ago, one week prior to Mother's Day I found out I was pregnant. One of the BEST days of my life. I LOVE being a momma. I love it. Seriously, LOVE it. Makes you think about how boring your life was before children, LOL! I mean really, Justin and I had fun, but life just wouldn't be the same without my Boogie. Now, of course, my everyday shower routine doesn't happen anymore (I do shower, just not as often as I used to lol, thought I should clear that up!), I never fix my hair, 9 times out of 10 there's some kind of grossness on my clothing (i.e. breastmilk, boogers, spit name it)... and sometimes all I eat is snack foods until J gets home because Boogie doesn't want to be put down, worn in a wrap, or anything... sometimes the only thing that will settle her down is laying down, nursing her, and napping with her. You know what? I wouldn't trade any of it.... she is a blessing, she is everything I could have hoped for and more. I know all you fellow mommy's know what I mean by all of this... it's SO totally worth it. So happy momma's day friends... be blessed!

What kind of fabric did you get to make the wrap? Was it expensive?
