Mother's Day Weekend

I was so excited about my first real Mother's Day weekend! Chris' mom and stepdad came in Sat morning to spend the weekend with us. Saturday Chris and his step-dad spent the day together and ran a bunch of errands while his mom, my mom and I got pedicures, ate at Mimi's and then had spa treatments! We all met back up at Abuelos (YUM) for dinner to celebrate his Mom's birthday which was last month.

I dressed both of my boys alike:

Today at church we had baby dedication day. I have more pictures but they haven't uploaded yet and I have to get Brayden in his bath in 5 minutes so I dont have time to wait on them but Kelly, if you're reading this, I have some pics I need to send you!




I thought I already got my mothers day gift from Chris (my bracelet). But today he SHOCKED me with this:

And this:

Long story short, when we were in Dallas I noticed on the Kate Spade store window they were going to be having a signing with Tim Gunn (whom I LOVE!) and we were going to miss it by a few days. I was so sad! Chris knows how much I love him and he called the store after we came home. The manager called him back and asked why this was so special so he told her about our struggle to get pregnant and then what we went through with Brayden being sick. She apparently told Tim and he sent me a signed picture and a signed book (totally FREE!)!!!!
I would attach the picture of me opening my gift but it would scare you. My eyes literally popped out of my head. I looked like Ramona from Real Housewives of NYC.
Can I just say I LOVE MY HUSBAND?!?!



And because this day is really all about my little man, here he is for the first time in his walker!!! He didn't walk but he played with the animals!

OK, Chris gets some MAJOR points! I almost screamed for you, but Brody is alseep right down the hall from me, and well, you know I can't wake him up. But tomorrow morning after he wakes up, I will scream for you! :)

Happy First Mother's Day! Glad you had a wonderful day!

The picture of your husband and the baby dressed alike is SO cute. I wish my husband would do that. I can occasionally get him to wear similar colors.

Congratulations on your first (second) Mothers Day.

Hey Jenna... I have been having some major lower back issues and I am thinking about going to a chiropactor.. I remember you mentioning you went several times during your pregnancy with Brayden and was wondering if you would recommend going to see one? My sister has a mother of one of her students in her class.. whose husband owns his own chiropactor biz and so I have been complitating contacting him.. should I?? If you could email me that would be great:) Emily.altendorf@gmail.com
thanks friend!
