Momma's Day

Well, its been awhile since I posted! I know you all are just sitting in suspense of what is going on in our lives!
The most interesting thing that has recently happened is that I was privileged enough to celebrate my first mother's day! I had a wonderful day. Jonah (and Mark) treated me well. I am posting some pictures of the fun day that we had. Jonah gave me a blue topaz necklace (which is his birth stone). It is a beautiful necklace! I just love it! We went to church in the morning, ate lunch with some good friends from church and then we went to Central Park for a little while in the afternoon to hang out. 'On our way' to Central Park we stopped at my favorite cupcake bakery, Crumbs, and each got a delicious cupcake to eat while in the park. I had a wonderful day and feel extremely blessed to be Jonah's mommy. Being a mother brings me more joy than I ever knew it would. I also have come to appreciate all the hard work that my mom did over the years of raising me and my two brothers. We were very blessed to have a 'stay at home mom'. I am SO fortunate to now be a (mostly) stay at home mom. I am so thankful to have this opportunity, as I really don't want to miss even a second of little Jonah's life! He's such a sweetheart and such a blessing! So happy belated Mother's day to all the mom's out there!!!

On another note.... I have recently discovered something new that I am very excited about. I have now attended two Mommy and me exercise classes in Central Park. These classes are 'pay as you go', so there is no commitment, which is great when you have a baby (cause your schedule can quickly change). Anyways, these classes are so much fun! I take Jonah in the jogging stroller and we do a workout with the other moms that come to the class. We probably look pretty crazy, going through Central Park, doing lunges (and other various exercises) with our strollers in front of us, but its great! Its been a great way for me to get outside, meet other moms and exercise! The group that I am now taking classes with is called 'Strolla Momma's'! How great is that!! : )Maybe eventually, I will take a few pictures of us doing our crazy workouts and share them here.

Enjoy the Momma's Day pictures!

    i am jealous of your mommy workouts in central park. that sounds so fun, and so hip:)

  2. I want to see this necklace! Congratulations on the wonderful day! Isn't Mothers day fun?! I just can not believe how much Jonah is looking like his dear daddy! He is just like a little Mark right now! I wonder if he will have curly hair like you though.... Thanks for posting pics - sure wish I could come stroller lunge around central park with you! It sounds so much fun... I love NYC!
