Today is Mai's second Mother's Day, and she couldn't be more excited! Everyone says that children grow up so quickly, and that's because it's true -- it seems like only moments ago we were celebrating Mai's first Mother's Day and highlighting her maternity style on the blog! Read on for some of the motherly advice she's acquired in the past year and a half.
I can't believe Amelie is over 17 months already. Time flies and she's growing up so fast -- too fast! Her mind is like sponge, watching and listening to everything I do and say. She amazes me and surprises me each and every day. And she melts my heart every time she calls me "Mommy" and repeatedly kisses me with the "muah" sound. Gah! I die each time! It's by far my favorite thing.
When I think about my life with Amelie, I realize how motherhood has challenged me to be a better person, to be a good role model for Amelie. And when I think about my mom, I realize how she has been such an amazing role model for me, and I want to do the same for Amelie. I also think about how much I love Amelie and I just can't believe this is how much my mom loves me too. She's truly the greatest mom and grandma ever. (I love you, Mom!)
To all the grandmas, moms, and moms-to-be out there, you're all amazing! Happy Mother's Day!
