Happy Mother's Day Every Day

Mother's day came and went. It was a nice relaxing day, nothing too different from any other day except that I got a "Happy Mother's Day" from lots of people. I enjoyed it still! I wanted to put a few pictures up the main reason I enjoy mother's day. What a blessing children are! Avery can make me smile even on my worst days. I love this kid more then I ever knew I could love someone, and I thank God every day for giving her to me. He definitely knew what he was doing at a time when I really had no idea what I was doing! Even now I get emotional because I'm so overwhelmed with love for her. In many ways I feel like she has saved my life, and most definitely changed it for the better. Thank you Lord! Thank you Lord!! And Happy Mother's Day to the many other's who know exactly what I'm talking about!

This picture is from about a year ago. Amazing how fast they grow!

These are a few pictures from Nana's the other day. She had a nasty cold so that's why she has black circles under her eyes. She had this little bear and Kerners put it in her shirt. Now she thinks that she has to have it in there all the time, and if it falls out, she comes over so that someone can put it back in lol.

Another picture of the bear under the shirt. Can't explain why she would even want it there haha, but she did!

Yes, Avery makes messes at other people's houses too. Aunt Karen took these pictures for me and while I was gone to the grocery store she found the pots and pans. I bet she had fun with that!
She went naked outside for a while. She really loves climbing on Nana's chairs outside and was laughing at me when I put one on my head, so we put one on her head. She thought that was pretty neat.

you are such a great mom to a sweet silly little girl that we love so much! Thanks for teaching me how to be a mom! Having a baby really is like having your heart walk around outside your body. I have my fingers crossed for you
