Today has just been the most wonderful day!
Andy woke up with Rory and let me sleep until 8 (!!!) and I woke up to a sweet card, chocolate, a Sonic gift card (I crave drinks from there), and a diamond necklace. He did GOOD! He also fixed me breakfast and it was so nice to eat as a family this morning.
Before I continue, I have to tell you about the card. He let Rory “sign” it with a Sharpie and when he was doing something else she decided she wanted a mustache. HAHA!
We went to church and had such a great morning there. The pastor spoke on the role of the wife and it was definitely something I needed to hear. At the end of the service they had baby dedication and three of my friends dedicated their babies. I got really tickled because my friend Caroline has three boys and the middle one was making all kinds of crazy noises and at the end said “I poopied in my diaper!” about a thousand times. She said she couldn’t look at me because I was laughing in the front pew so hard. Next year when we dedicate Ryder we will be going through the same thing with them so I can laugh now and they can laugh at me later!
We are once again having some air conditioning issues so it was a nice break to be out of the house. When we got home we decided we’d play in the water since it was about 88 today.
We got this sprinkler ball for Rory and at first she loved it especially when Andy was showing her what to do… and then she hated it when she actually decided to get close enough to get wet. She ran away so fast I couldn’t really catch it on camera! haha!
After she refused to go anywhere near the ball again, we decided to try out the hot tub as a pool. We had turned it off a few days ago so it was luke warm and the perfect temperate to fake swim in! ha!
Rory is such a little water bug. She is not afraid one bit! After Andy got in she just laughed and laughed and had a great time. Then all of a sudden a great splash came upon us and we realized Jackson had jumped in too! Rory laughed so hard I thought she was going to stop breathing. It was hilarious. I wish so bad we could have gotten it on camera but of course we were soaked and trying to manage the dog and Rory.
It was such a fantastic Mother’s Day. I love every second spent with my precious family. Its hard to believe that next year I will have TWO daughters! I’m so thankful for this life God has blessed me with and SO so so thankful that He chose us to be Rory’s parents.
Happy Mother’s Day!
