Exactly ten weeks ago today I gave birth to our son Elijah Harold Watson. He weighed 6 lbs, 8oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. Who knew such a little person could change my life so completely. Since that joyous day my life has been turned upside down. I'm exhausted, excited, overwhelmed and overjoyed all at the same time. But no matter what emotion I may be feeling one thing is more certain, the past ten weeks have been the most amazing and fulfilling of my life. So, I invite you to follow my journey through motherhood as I share the moments that make life so sweet, and the challenges that test my patience and sanity daily. Motherhood is a full time job, a daily test, and above all a gift from God. This is how I'm living it...
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day. You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery. We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys. It was a hoot! We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool. It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen. They also have presents coming later this week for me. Basically, they are awesome!
