Happy Mother’s Day, New Mama

Of course, I wish this to my own mother. And I wish it to me too because, frankly, I’m a good mom. But this year, I get to wish it to my baby – for the first time ever.

Yup. Her baby girl, Little Miss Aria (r-e-uh) arrived bright and late Monday morning … in plenty of time for Mother’s Day this weekend.

Wrapped in blanket 5-7Gonna take a little time for her to grow into her Rock ‘n Play bassinet…

It’s just amazing how fast you can fall in love sometimes, but as soon as I saw this tiny six pound, ten ounce human being, she owned my heart.


To my beautiful daughter, Happy First Mother’s Day to you. The first of many to come. You’re learning quickly the reasons why I was such a protective mom. I see the same signs in you already and I’m glad. Trust me when I say that being a mother is the most important – and the best thing that will ever happen to you. This song describes exactly how your new daughter is going to feel about you as she grows – and the way she’s going to change your life.

How amazing is it that this video was posted on Aria’s birthday – May 4, 2015?
