Mother's Day

First off, I want to say that for those of you who so desperately want to be Mamas, I am praying for you. I remember how hard Mother's Day was when we were struggling with infertility and I know that what I experienced is NOTHING compared to the struggles that a lot of you are going through. And for those of you who have lost children, I am also praying for you. Since I have three other children here on this earth, Mother's Day is mostly a joyous day, but it is also definitely a day when Cole is on my heart. He would have been three-years-old this Mother's Day and, while I know he is so happy and healthy in Heaven, my heart aches for him to be here in my arms - rambunctious, inquisitive, and all.

My one Mother's Day wish was to get a good picture with all three of my kids, but alas, that did not happen this weekend. I'm not giving up, though. Hopefully I can get one this weekend at my brother's Law School Graduation. Bound and determined, friends. Bound and determined.
 
My day started out about 5:30am, when a certain someone *Cough Cough* Connor.
Mr. Howard had to work and so I was home with the kids by myself. I really wanted donuts, but knew I couldn't carry all three in by myself (plus donuts) - so I did what any sane person would do. I drove to the nearest Krispy Kreme and used their drivethrough!
 Oh my goodness. Heaven. This was the first time I gave the babies donuts and they EACH ate an entire donut by themself. I have no idea where they got that from.
Aiden and Mama
 Connor and Mama during naptime (I was a sucker and let him sleep in my bed!)
Isabella and Mama
Oh my goodness; these photos that our preschool did of the kids are AMAZING!!! Aiden was sick and didn't go to school on Friday, so I'm hoping and crossing my fingers a million times over that they do a make up for him (they said they would, but I know how busy things can get).
Here was my picture with the kids. Isn't it the most amazing picture you've ever seen? Aiden's crying... Connor's sun-glared out...Izzy's looking, but not smiling...Ha! This is what life with three kids three-years-old and younger is really like!
Opening my presents from the kids:
Connor's Photo:
 And Isabella's Photo:
I hope you all had a wonderful mother's day with your sweet babies.
