Mother's Day Weekend

Mother's Day was extra special to me this year. It was my first Mother's Day with my precious little angel Hannah Rose. I can't lie and say I downplayed this holiday. Just the opposite. I had plans, big plans of marking this special occasion. I was super excited about my first Mother's Day and I needed the entire weekend to celebrate and do something special with Hannah and Michael. I've been Hannah's mom for almost a year and although my rookie year is almost over, I just love this little girl to bits. Being Hannah's mom has been a pure joy. She is the most amazing little girl I've ever known and being Hannah's mom is such an honor. She is one special little lady.

To kick the weekend off, we took the subway to Brooklyn and visited the New York Aquarium and Coney Island. Michael and I went to Coney Island pre-Hannah and I just love the carnival-like atmosphere. From the aquatic life to the taste of Nathan fries, I was sure Hannah's senses would love it just as much.

The New York Aquarium was filled with lots of new sounds and sights for Hannah and it was exciting just to see her discover the world around her. She came face-to-face with sharks and turtles and got to enjoy a show with sea lions.

Afterward the Aquarium, we walked around and took Hannah to some of Coney Island's famous scenes.

 Hannah got a new stuffed animal, this one a colorful frog we named Andy. I think she likes him.

On Sunday, we enjoyed brunch with Grandma and Grandpa at Fishtail. We went to this restaurant last year for Mother's Day, which was two days before my due date. It was a thrill to now have Hannah join us. We enjoyed the lobster and Hannah was "forced to eat chocolate cheesecake lollipops.

 We ended the day at Central Park, testing out the grass. All in all it was a pretty perfect weekend.

  1. If this is your Rookie Year, then you should be The Rookie of the Year. Hannah is a lucky little girl to have you as a mother. Nobody can do it better.
