Happy Mommy's Day!

What a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Mostly because I get called Mommy by these two little munchkins...

But there was also another reason this year.
I would like to introduce you to our newest family member:

Isn't she beautiful!?
I have been bugging asking Matt forever for a nice new camera and he came home this week and surprised me with one!  I was just a tad bit excited. :)  I would love to say that I have it all figured out already but honestly, I haven barely taken any pictures.  I'm scared of her!  We're slowing figuring each other out though and I am already signed up for a class.  SO.EXCITED.
I think she needs a name.  Any suggestions?

To Alexa
My sweet little princess, my mini me, my Baby Girl, the one who made me a Mommy.  I was amazed how one tiny little person could change my world so much in one split second.  I don't think I put you down for the first 3 months, I loved just staring at you all day.  I love you more than you will ever know and I am so blessed to call you my daughter!

To Braden
My little man, the most handsome boy I have ever seen, the one who gives a whole new meaning to Mama's Boy.  I secretly love the way you always want me by your side and I can never get enough of your sweet little kisses and the way you call me Mommy.  I can't imagine life without you and I am so thankful God gave me you for a son!

To Matt
The most hard working man I know, thoughtful, loving, cute, and the best husband I could ever ask for.  Thank you for making this day so special.  I love you!

Also to my Mom.  Thank you for being so encouraging, supportive, and loving.  You are the best mom, mother in law and Gramma anyone could ever ask for.  Thank you for everything you do for our family, you mean the world to us.  Happy Mother's Day!

And to all the other Mamas out there, I hope you had an AMAZING day, you deserve it! :)

woo hoo and I see a cute camera strap on that camera too. Which one is it? I have the D90 and I love it. . YOu will adore that beauty.
I can't think of a name though...I haven't named mine yet and I have had it a year.
Happy Mother's Day to you.

Happy Mother's Day! We have a similar camera but different brand - a Canon EOS. You are going to be amazed at the pictures you can take with it. Seriously - it rocks! and no lag time is HUGE when shooting pics of the kids.

Glad you had a great day!
