[Flowers after my hike at Lake Miramar yesterday]
Today, my sisters and I celebrate our own mother, while also looking ahead to growing our families and being mothers ourselves. My oldest sister is already a mother to my sassy and beautiful niece, but is expecting her second in just a short month. If that weren't enough excitement, my middle sister is also expecting her first within ten days of my other sister! TEN DAYS. Could you imagine if they were born on the same day?! I wish I could be there, but will see my beautiful nephews in good time this summer!
To celebrate, next week we're having two baby showers with plenty of food, family, friends, and pie. It's gonna be all kinds of fun.
On that note, the boy and I are not trying to conceive until he's done with his PhD and I'm done with library school, but lately I find myself curious about trying to conceive and pregnancy, even though I know it's a couple years away. If it takes me six months to plan a 3-day vacation and 18 months to plan a wedding, a couple years of reading about pregnancy sounds about right! In the meantime, I'm told by my brother-in-law that I can practice by being a good auntie.
Happy Mother's Day my blogger friends. Hope it was wonderful!
