Stephen & Berkley started the day off with a few cards & gifts (again- some cards that Berkley "wrote" on). I basically spent that entire 15 minutes or so crying while I read cards & was reminded of how much my husband (and my son) loves me & that he thinks I'm doing an okay job at this "motherhood thing".

Stephen went over to Elon the other day & got these cute clothes for me
And he also picked out this super-fun dress for me! One of the cards instructed me to go to my closet, and there I found this gift.
We had invited all of our moms (and Terry's mom & my aunt, Ziza) to our house for lunch, so Stephen gave me the option of hanging out with Berkley during the morning, or doing the cooking. I was thrilled to have the choice to cook some fun dishes that I don't usually have the time or energy to make. Stephen had started cooking at pork shoulder at about 4am, and I added carrot souffle, lemon risotto, asparagus & blueberry/banana pie to the menu. Lunch was a big hit!

It was so great to spend the day with my own mom. She is such an incredible lady!
