Yesterday I experienced my first Mother’s Day as a mum. I think this is a big milestone for any new mum and the day takes on a whole new meaning! I think once you become a mum, as long as you had a good relationship with your mum you appreciate her a lot more. As a mother, I also appreciate my body a lot more – it’s amazing what it does throughout pregnancy and labour.
I woke up late, thanks to the clocks going forwards and going to bed late with Autumn. When I woke up, Dave and Autumn were already awake. Dave insisted on giving me my cards and presents from him and Autumn before she started grizzling.
I had a HUGE card from Autumn with owls on the front. I love owls and collected them since I was 9 years old. This card is bigger than Autumn!
Inside, Dave had got her to sign it which was very cute! He had trouble doing it, because she kept trying to eat the pen!
From Autumn and Dave I had a box of chocolates, (Terry’s chocolate orange segments), and a few pictures/wall decorations.
I thought this was absolutely beautiful with the mummy and baby giraffe on the front!
I also had this engraved picture frame. It made me laugh; the only landscape photo Dave could find of Autumn and I was one of us both asleep on the sofa! He took a better photo yesterday to replace it with.
This is gorgeous too, but unfortunately the string has already snapped! I’d only gently handles it too.
I also had a lovely card from Dave.
We went to my parents’ house for lunch with my parents, brother and both my Nans. I decided to take an almost complete break from blogging and social media for the day. It was nice to just relax with family.
As it was my first Mother’s Day, I had a card from my mum and presents from my Mum and Nan.
My Nan gave me a lovely plant in a cute welly boot plant pot.
My mum gave me a beautiful outfit for Autumn with a delicate blue and lilac floral pattern as well as some chocolate Lindt bunnies. You may notice one is missing. I ate one before I forgot I wanted to take a picture for this blog post!
As one of their presents, I bought canvasses, paint and decorative flowers to make pictures with my family using our handprints.
This one below is my nan (orange), my mum (yellow), me (pink) and Autumn. Four generations!
I also made one for my other nan with her handprints, as well as my dad’s, my brother’s, Autumn and I’s handprints. My brother, dad and I all ended up wearing some of the paint!
Autumn also learned to dance yesterday, which was the best present of all! It’s so cute. Here she is this morning:
How was your Mother’s Day? I hope you had a good day!
