Mother’s Day 2011

What a wonderful day together with my sweet baby girl!  When she woke up I said to her, ‘Happy Mother’s Day sweetie’ which in turn she responded, ‘Happy Mother’s Day Mama!’  Yes, what a sweet, precious way to begin our day.

We went to church where we got to spend extra time together in the nursery.  Once I was in the room with Hannah she was fine and happy to play with the toys and other children. 

After church Hannah grabbed an early nap while I finished up one of our Mother’s Day crafts.  We went to Nana and Papa’s place for lunch.DSC_7897

After lunch it was home for an afternoon of play both inside and out.  It was an absolutely gorgeous day so we enjoyed some time in the garden.  Finally some warm weather.   Yay!  One of my favourite flowers is the tulip and I was excited to see that many of ours decided to bloom just in time for Mother’s Day.  Hannah had a blast playing in the garden and I love to watch her enjoy everything around her – including her choice to wear pink rain boots with her pretty Mother’s Day dress.  That’s my girl!

We went out to celebrate at a restaurant on Lake Ontario with Mom and Dad at suppertime.  My youngest brother and his family were there too and we had a great time celebrating Mom!

  2. What great photos!!!

    I see she is still putting her finger way back in her mouth and chewing. Have you been able to see if any teeth are coming in?
