This was taken probably a week or two after Mayble was born. Aaron's grandma was diagnosed with cancer back in November and was given a few months to live. When I found out I cried. She lived by us and was in our ward and I have gotten to know and love this sweet woman. She has made hundreds of quilts and each of our children received one when they were born. She managed to make this last quilt for our Mayble. A week or so after this was taken she couldn't get out of bed, started sleeping most of the time and couldn't really talk. She died on Mothers Day. We know you were ready to go but we will miss you grandma. We are so grateful that you were able to get to know our children and especially meet Mayble and hold her at least once. We love you.
I can hardly believe this is my beautiful family (easy for me to say now when they are all in bed:) Motherhood is a very difficult and overwhelming job but worth it. I had a great Mothers Day(except for the kids fighting). I ate my traditional delicious omelet from Aaron. Our camera broke recently and Aaron was inspired to get me just that! I do not like being without a camera. I feel like I am missing those precious moments! Mayble even surprised me with a gift and let me sleep for 6 hours straight in the night.
Mayble wanted to sneak in and show off for everyone.
We did our traditional Mothers Day lunch and pedicures. I love being with my mom and sisters. Just waiting for Kier to get here!!!! I couldn't leave Mayble but she was very cooperative and slept the entire time! So grateful for you mom!!
Anders had his Kinder graduation tonight. We are not huge fans of making Kindergarten graduation a big deal but it was fun seeing him up there and it was well worth going especially when he was chosen for a little part in it. I don't know why but this little smirky smile makes me think of Aaron and he looks so much like his dad. Maybe its from a photo I've seen of Aaron as a kid or something.
Love you buddy!
