Mommy's first Mothers' Day

Dear Maya,

It's been another full and beautiful week with you, the highlight of which was probably Mother's Day.  I was so proud to be celebrating my first as your mommy.

 I dressed you in white with pink tights...

 We snuggled and took some photos in the mirror...

Then daddy took some photos of us in front of the gorgeous cherry trees along the driveway...

Aren't they beautiful?

How appropriate is this juxtaposition of Japanese cherry against American farmland?

Daddy bought mommy some tulips (and a CD case)...

Mommy made Cabernet cupcakes with Cabernet berry cream cheese frosting for her mom...

And we went to Grandma's house to spend some quality Mothers' Day time with her...

I love this picture of Grandma watching mommy mother you on Mothers' Day!

In other news, thanks to the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Child by Dr. Weissbluth, and some persistence on mommy and daddy's part, you were relatively sleep trained in only three nights!  Last Friday and Saturday nights were a little stressful, but you rewarded mommy with almost 11 straight hours of uninterrupted sleep on Mothers' Day night!

The day after, mommy took you to the pediatrician for your 4-month checkup.  You weighed in at 16 pounds, 3 ounces and measured 26.5 inches long.  You got some pretty sparkly band aids after your shots, too.

Also, you're turning over all the time, unassisted, and doing this airplane move a lot now, too.

I'm going to finish this week's post with two pictures of you that made mommy laugh out loud:

So funny, so cute!
Love you!
