^^ Crying in the early days... looks like Adelaide came by it honest. ^^ 

If you're lucky like me, you got to spend years upon years taking advantage of your mom ;) Not knowingly of course. But if your mom was anything like mine, she was completely devoted and always putting your needs first. So much so that you had no idea that there was any other way for a mom to be. Like so many things in parenthood, in life really, you can't really understand what it's like until you experience it. It wasn't until I became a mom myself that I really came to understand just how much energy, time and love you constantly pour out for your child. And I've only just begun. It's amazing, rewarding and exhausting

Mom, I'm sorry I never really understood just how much you deserved Mother's Day all those years. You gave us everything you had, and then you gave us more. You made us feel special and loved and put us first every single day. Thank you for teaching me how to do the very most important job in the whole world. I love you!

In other Mother's Day news.... Adelaide gave me the very best Mother's Day gift a few days early: She started saying Mommy! She says it with the very most drawl-y Texan inflection so it comes out something like "Mom-mae" and it absolutely causes me to melt into the most delightful puddle of sentimental mommy-ness. In fact, it almost caused me to cry right in the middle of REI last night. I've never known more happy tears than since I became a mom.

Getting to be Mommy to this sweet girl is absolutely the most precious thing in the world. I hope all of you Moms out there have an absolutely fantastic Mother's Day! You deserve it!
