Random Mother's Day Photos



Jane and Kristine are pretty much obsessed with all things Quinn. And I love it. How could you not be? Really. She is pretty squishy and slobbery and smiley. Hard to resist. Thanks for being such cute aunts. They brought gorgeous flowers, fruit, salad, and treats for me. By the way - Sophie the Giraffe that Quinn is holding is pretty much the coolest toy I have ever bought and I just might buy it for you if you are having a baby. Quinn and I both LOVE it.

I mostly just want you to notice that I have gorgeous sisters and I am inspired to do a little work on my appearance. Looking a little worn. But I really want you to notice this cute little brooch that Gavin made for me. Love it.



Do you like our Sabbath day activity? A pediatrician or ER docs worst nightmare!


I loved this idea on Stephmodo and so I had to copy. These little vases were $1 at Target. Go get some. They are so perfect.



And lastly - but most importantly - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY. I wish I was in Italy with my Mom. She is living the good life. :) She is the best mom. She continues to teach and inspire me. I want to be like her. Check out this super cute picture of her as kiddo.

Thanks to all the good mothers out there who surround me. I appreciate your example. I am working on it.

YOU are so beautiful! And so is baby Quinn! I am so impressed by your teaching capabilities in GD - you're my fave!

Okay, when I saw you and said that you haven't changed, I meant to say it like Malea did in her comment. Totally, one hundred percent, positive. You are beautiful.

Happy Mother's Day Annie! I found it interesting that you said you are "looking worn." Ummm . . . every time I see a picture of you I have to repent of my envy because you look so amazingly awesome! Wish I had your figure (and, I'm not just saying that because my belly is about to explode at the moment).
