Last ditch effort!

I'm such a bad mommy!  I haven't done anything for spring yet!  I haven't decorated one single thing, bought anything for Carter's Easter basket, or even gotten him his Easter outfit!  I'm horrrrrrible!  This weekend will be my "Spring Cleaning Weekend" (hahah!!  ...right!~) and hopefully getting SOMETHING decorated for Easter.  Wish me luck!  I'll post pics soon!

And a special something for my friend Jaime......

I loooooove you!!  I loooove that little Chase, and I love that little Mason already!  I'll be thinking of you Monday as you go in for your c-section!!

"Before I was a Mom"
Author Unknown

Before I was a Mom
I slept as late as I wanted and never worried about how late I got into bed
I brushed my hair and my teeth everyday
I ate meals while they were still hot
I wore clothes that had no stains

Before I was a Mom
I never looked into teary eyes and cried
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down

Before I was a Mom
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much
I never knew that I could love someone so much
I never knew I would love being a Mom
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body

Before I was a Mom
I didn't know how special it could feel to nurse a hungry baby
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.
