My First mother's Day

My husband surprised me with my mother's day gift a week early. The previous Sunday after coming home from a friends baby shower the hubby asked me to get him some blank cd's from our guest room/office. When I walked over to our desk there sat a iPad! I have been wanting one forever. He even got me a bright pink cover. That man knows me so well. So for mother's day I wasn't expecting much since he already went so above and beyond. I was wrong again. Friday night the hubs allowed me to rent a total chick flick to celebrate Mother's day weekend. Woohoo. Saturday he woke up with Gianna( who gets up at 530) allowing me to sleep in until 8. Afterward he made me French toast. It was so yummy. After breakfast we packed up and headed out for a day of window shopping. I was even told I could pick out a new Marc jacobs bag or a coach purse but I didn't. I'll save that for another day lol After shopping we went out for a yummy lunch right on the beach. I couldn't ask for a more perfect day. That night we had dinner with friends and headed home. Sunday the hubs got up with the baby again and we had plans to go to the beach but it was storming like crazy here. There were even a few water sprouts and tornadoes along the coast so we decided not to venture to the beach. Instead we had a lazy day at home, hung up our pictures so our new house feels like home and he ended the night giving Gianna a bath and entertaining her while I watched(sobbed) during the series finale of Deesperate Housewives. My little family spoiled me so much. The bar is set pretty high for fathers day. And as nice as the iPad and family day out was, I am so blessed without any of those things I have an amazing husband. One who always puts his family first. He tells me everyday that I'm beautiful and a great mom and he himself is an amazing dad. My daughter just lights up anytime he enters the room and seeing them play together melts my heart. And Gianna. She herself is gift enough. She has taught me how to love someone unconditionally. The last 10 months have truly been the best time of my life. I love being her mom and every day with her gets better and better. I can't imagine my life without her. And last I am blessed to be carrying another baby. I can't wait to meet this little one and introduce her to her big sister. I can't thank god enough for all he has given me. I hope everyone had an amazing mither's day
