My First Mothers Day

Josh and James really know how to make mommy feel special. We spent a wonderful day/ weekend as a family which was so nice.

Josh took me out to brunch at the Sea Pearl just down the street. He had been there a few times for business dinners, but today was my first visit, it was awesome.

Best Bloody Mary's, granted no pickled okra, but the abundance of horseradish and other spices made up for it.

We both started with crab and corn chowder, which I dug into before I remembered to snap a picture, it was fantastic.

I had crab cake benedict, I rarely turn down a the combo of crab and hollandaise sauce. Delish!

Josh had the lobster pot, which was also super yummy.

Brunch was complete with a mango mousse, a nice treat.

After brunch we headed to a park, where we found we didn't have a stroller or sun hat for James. We did have diapers, and got creative with a light blanket to protect his little head.

Despite not being prepared for our journey to the park today, everything else in parenthood is gon so well.

Josh has been on business trips all month, so we've enjoyed spending weekends with daddy.

Being on my own has been hard, but with each passing week, I feel better and more confident in what I'm doing. Plus I survived taking care of the dog and baby by myself with food poisoning. If I could do that I can do just about anything!

I am loving being a mom, and am so grateful that I get to stay home with James. It is so amazing to be there first hand to help him learn and grow. He is just so happy, and it's neat to know that I'm one of the reasons why.

Of course the best moments are those causal ones at home!

I'm so glad that I was able to celebrate my very first mothers day with the guys I love, and I'm looking forward to a lifetime of more!
