Happy Birthday to the Best Mommy EVER!

Yes, I still call her Mommy...and probably always will. I also realized today that she calls her mom "Mommy" too (her mom passed away when my mom was 16).

Here are a few ways she is the BEST:
She moved from her home, 2 1/2 hours away, to us when she found out I was pregnant with my first child. She helped me during my sickest times while pregnant, she was here when I was going through postpartum depression, and just through all the ups and downs of being a first time mom.

As I've said before, she loves my husband like a son. I love that they love each other and get along so well (except for the times they gang up on me).

She always brings the kids peppermints.

She's always such a trooper and comes with us on our adventures. She has the most contagious laugh!

She knows me so well, almost better than I know myself. She knew I loved sun catchers before I did! She is always so thoughtful.

I love you Mommy...more than words could ever say. Happy Birthday!
