Making Myself Better

My first Mother’s Day in a nutshell:

  • My parents got to our house around 6:30 Saturday night. We ate the pork roast, potatoes, spinach salad, and homemade apple crisp.
  • Ryland ate pork, potatoes, and spineaches.
  • Jeremy surprised me with this card that he and Ryland made. I came in the kitchen, and Ryland was pulled up on a chair. Jeremy said, “Hey, Nikki. What does Ryland have a hold of?” It was the card. So sweet.
  • Sunday, we went to church. I clipped a tie on Ryland for the first time. We ran out of time to get pictures with my mom. :( I’ll steal some from facebook when my dad posts them.
  • Ryland’s pants kept falling off even though they’re 3-6 mo. size. his shirt is 12 mo. He is 8 mo. 
  • We went to Red Lobster for lunch, and I was HONGRAY. So I honored my hunger and ate a 3rd cheddar bay biscuit after finishing my food (I had a small lunch portion of shrimp and broccoli).
  • My parents left from the restaurant because they had to make it back to the other side of Atl. to pick up their foster child before evening worship.
  • Jeremy’s parents, brothers, and brother’s GF got to our house a little before 4. We hung out until time for evening worship.
  • Afterwards, we went to Jason’s Deli to eat. 
  • Ryland was a champ getting so much attention from people who are pretty much strangers to him. He stared at them all serious at first, but warmed up within 10 minutes.

p.s.Jeremy, the master photographer, took this gem that I had to share:
