Sunday afternoon, I was informed by Brett that we were celebrating Mother’s Day and that he would be back in a bit. Lucas went with him to get some fresh air. I had no idea what they were up to or why we were celebrating early, but I just went with the flow.
When they came back, I was told to leave the room, they needed to borrow Logan. I obliged and went into our bedroom for a little breathing time. When I came back out, Brett cooked me a steak for dinner with homemade Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits
Logan woke up for a bit and I asked if there was anything we needed to do while his eyes were open. Brett jumped up and said yes! He went and got two cards (I’m a huge card person lol). One from him and one from the boys. This what was done while I was out of the room:
By this time I am in tears because of how thoughtful everything is. Then Lucas comes over with a Pandora bag. Last Mother’s Day, I was given a charm bracelet and have gradually been collecting charms. Apparently the ladies at the Pandora store helped Brett with the new charms ❤
This is Logan’s side. The dino was for how I decorated his nursery and his “theme”. Of course green. The red heart was for my birthday to represent July. And the mom charm with angel wings was given to me yesterday ❤
The Lucas side has a heart he picked out for me. A car for his “theme”. A suitcase that has Paris on it representing Brett’s first overseas trip where Lucas and I were alone for a week. The plane represents the second trip where we found out I was pregnant with Logan. Lucas wanted it on his side though 🙂
As the night ended, and I was in tears thanking Brett, I asked why today. Why were we celebrating early? He told me, “I promised you would spend Mother’s Day with both of your boys.” ❤
By far the best “Mother’s Day” present was this though: I asked two friends to pray that I would see Logan’s smile one more time. He hasn’t smiled since last Monday. When his eyes are open, they seem to be blank. So around 2pm, Logan woke up for the first time Sunday. Something was different about his eyes. They were bright! I came closer to his face, was all smiles and he looked like he wanted to smile. So I got my camera out just in case…and he smiled!!!!
He went back to sleep after two episodes of Little Einsteins, but for a brief moment in time, my baby came back to me.
I am a week early, but I hope you ladies who are moms (whether pregnant with you first, mom of many, or you baby has wings) have a wonderful Mother’s Day. We all posses an inner strength. We are moms. We are beautiful and strong.
