THANKS MOM!


We have been staying at my moms for the last week since getting out of the hospital and I wanted to thank my mom for an amazing week! It has been a little extra difficult to get around and take care of the baby b/c of the c section and I don't know how I would have done it by myself with Willie @ work. If I didn't know better I would think we were staying @ a bed and breakfast! Not only did she take care of me and the baby but made our meals and did our laundry. She and dad gave up there master bedroom and bathroom and she did maid service every morning...garbages, cleaning, making the bed. Most helpful though taking the baby so I could shower, get ready and rest. She also taxied me around to all my apts. All the while adoring her first little grand baby every second she had. I know she must be exhausted...even though she said we could stay longer I was worried we would never want to leave! I guess we have to go home someday! My first 2 weeks of being a mother have been amazing and even though I have only scratched the surface of motherhood, I can now truly say that I know the love a mother has for a child. I'm so grateful to have a mom who is a perfect example of what mother is ... service and love. Thanks Mom we love you! Willie, Camie & Baby Vance
