Mother's Day Recap

Here's a short little recap of my First Mother's Day (with lots of pics!)

Little Miss Bailey decided she wanted to spend a lot of time with me yesterday (how sweet!) so she woke up at 7am, opposed to her usual 8/9am. I was awake anyways, so not a big deal.

Chris got her out of the crib and we did family time in the bed where we sit and stare at her, try to make her laugh and smile (easy task) and Chris plays a few videos of her on his phone so she can watch and giggle at herself. After doing this for about 20 minutes, Chris went downstairs and got a bottle ready for her and said that I could either stay in bed and come down in 25 minutes or I could feed Bailey in her nursery, but couldn't come downstairs! I chose to feed Bailey so that I could cuddle with my sweet little girl. We went to her nursery, she ate and then we read the book "Mothers and Daughters". Shortly after that we got the word that we could come downstairs.

CT had whipped up a delicious breakfast for me (I took a picture and then decided that it looked super unhealthy and decided not to post it). It was so good (and unhealthy)! I had flowers on the table, a card, a white box and a cooler all waiting for me! So loved!

Not impressed with flowers, I guess
Chris had to go in to work for a few hours. So Bailey and I went for a jog/walk, did laundry and some light cleaning around the house. 
Sooo helpful with her laundry!
Later that afternoon, we headed over to Millie's house to drop off her present and see the baby geese that had hatched. I joked to Chris that we were going to see Gosling as in Ryan Gosling and that was my Mother's Day present...he wasn't too impressed ;)
Bailey with one of the babies - not too sure what to think!

Then we got home and Chris got ready to go out to dinner. We went to Teresa's Mexican restaurant in Prior Lake. We used to go to the one in Lakeville all the time when we lived there and now one just opened up down the street from us! Sooooo yummy! I decided to treat myself to large mango margarita. Well, actually we shared - I'm not that mom...most of the time :)
I don't know what my deal was, I couldn't get a normal smile - this is 1 of about 10 crappy pics!

Then, I took a pic of Bailey and Chris. She has been blowing some raspberries lately and wouldn't stop for this pic. I can't look at this pic without laughing. She's a goofball...can't imagine where she gets that from!

silly girl
When we got home, I asked Chris to take some pics of me and Bailey. She's is just so darn precious - I love her to pieces. I now have these streaming on my desktop background at work.

CT didn't want to have his pic taken, Bailey did!

 We capped off the weekend/night by watching The Voice (Bailey's favorite!). For some reason, we're both just not into it as much this season - anyone else? Bailey is so close to sitting on her own! She can for a short period of time. It's just so unbelievable to me how much she has grown and developed in the past month!
Adam Levine - you're so dreamy!
A little disclaimer on Bailey's outfit...I was looking for an outfit for her to wear yesterday morning. I got the dress in a box of hand-me-downs from a friend of mine and honestly thought she would never wear it. I'm not normally a pink and zebra print kind of girl (no offense if you are, just not my thing) but saw it and saw that it said I Love Mom...Mother's Day seemed like the perfect opportunity! The leggings are knee-high socks from Target that I cut the feet off of (poor lady's baby legs) and she had the hair bow from before. I think she looked ridiculously cute and some day in the future she will probably hate me for it!

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!
