Happy Mother's Day 2008

What a fabulous Mother's Day I had!!

Brian handed me breakfast in bed (even though I said I never wanted to "eat" in bed again after 10 weeks of it forced on me), flowers and the sweetest card, addressed to "Kaitlyn and Corinne's mommy" which of course made me cry. Brian fed Kaitlyn every feed yesterday, which is the best break of all for mommy. (Have I indicated how much I HATE feeding Kaitlyn?)

Kaitlyn woke up SICK again, (I guess we should have figured when she vomited in her bed the night before which she hasn't done in ages). Poor thing, I was complacent on turning on the monitor (it had been so long since she vomited once in bed) and Brian heard her crying when he walked by her room. Her cry is still so quiet we can't hear her. She was covered in vomit saying, "I'm ok, it's ok", my heart just melted.

Anyways, back to the good news of mother's day, even thought she was starting a cold, we decided to go ahead with our plans and take her to Train Town
in Sonoma County, which has trains to ride on, and mini amusement park rides. Kaitlyn had so much fun and of course I teared up again. Knowing that Mothers Day is all about seeing the joy in your children! Here are some pictures from the day! (as well as a few other recent pictures!)

Some Misc Pictures:
Pregnant mom holding Kaitlyn
Kaitlyn attempting to "smile" on comand on camera, she's not much of a smiler

On a rare warm day, putting on sun-screen about to go in her kiddie pool

Kaitlyn has recently REALLY been looking at things up closely, this is new. We have to get her eyes checked out again.

Mother's Day pictures:
Kaitlyn on the plane ride, this was K's first "ride" on her own! No adults allowed
She couldn't figure out how to make the plane go up and down, but she tried!
Kaitlyn's first roller coaster ride with dad! She looked a bit nervous on the ride, but seemed to enjoy it!
Dad and Kaitlyn in the miniature firehouse in Train Town
A view of the "small" train as well as the miniature buildings of Train Town. It was so cute!
Dad and Kaitlyn getting ready for our ride (yes that's a washcloth pinned to K to wipe her constantly running nose)
A rare smile on camera!
Mom and Kaitlyn on the merry go round, what better mothers day could I ask for?
The family!
What a great day we had

After we left Train Town, we went downtown to the town of Sonoma and picked up some bread and cheese for a picnic. We then went to a winery and had a picnic and I celebrated with a 1/2 glass of wine. Dad fed Kaitlyn and we headed home. (K didn't have a nap so she was one tired girl by the time we got home).

Wow, what a great Mother's Day I had yesterday! Thank you Brian!

Hi Liz,

I don't leave much comments on your blog but I check daily on Kaitlyn and your baby boy:) progress.
I started giving to my son (he has reflux) enzymes and seems like it helps him a lot. Well we stopped all relux medicines. I thought the enzymes might help Kaitlyn with her vomits.
Here some generic info about enzymes: digestive enzyme helps the body process proteins, carbohydrates, fats and dairy.
