a new appreciation this mother's day

it was a cold january morning when i first found out our lives were about to drastically change.  i already knew the answer but needed to see the confirmation for myself.  i let the test lay on the bathroom counter and came back into the room again and again to stare at it in disbelief.  could this be it? 

i decided to wake rob up to show him, to make sure i wasn't dreaming.  we both felt it seemed too good to be true and agreed to take another test again the next day.  and the next day, the results flashed on the screen even faster than before. 

several ultrasounds and pounds later, i think the reality has finally set in.  we're having a baby! 
it feels like such a gift and i'm so incredibly thankful.

this mother's day feels a little different as we look into our future and have a bigger appreciation for our own mothers than ever before. 

happy mother's day to all you amazing inspiring mothers!
