Mother's Day

Just a few pictures from my first official Mother's Day. The only pics of all four generations were a bit blurry, but you get the idea... lots of love for Moms. We gave Yia Yia Linda and Nona Linda little imprints of four and a half month footprints pressed in clay.... guess who's?

Here is a picture of Michael "helping" Miles press his foot into the clay. We only had to try about five times to get two good prints. It felt wonderful to have my hands back into the "mud" as we potters sometimes say. That life of studio art and ceramics feels so far away sometimes, but it felt good to use my skills to make keepsakes for the family!

Back at home we had a little impromptu mommy and baby photo session. I now have a new favorite holiday, and I thank my sweet husband for making me feel loved and cherished on this special day!

I am so thankful for all the mothers who came before me. I am truly thankful for the blessing of Miles in my life. My sweet son, you will always be the little boy that made me a mother... no matter how old you are.
