Mother's Day Weekend

We had a very low-key Mother's Day weekend. Saturday, Joseph's parents and sister came over and we cooked out. We enjoyed spending a few hours with them, and they enjoyed getting some Hudson time! :) We laid around the rest of the evening after they left and even got to take a little nap. Sunday, we had a very quiet's not like you can do too much with a 2 1/2 week old. However, we did decide to get out for a quick outing Sunday afternoon. I needed to get out of the house and we needed some groceries, so we made a quick trip to the mall and to Publix. Hudson did great and slept the whole time.

He loves his carseat!
I mostly just wanted to get out and about since I've been cooped up in the house for weeks now. My hubby treated me to a few things while we were out. I got a pretty new dress, and these bad boys...

I love a beautiful pair of heels and I haven't worn any in MONTHS and I can't wait to get dressed up and wear these things to a wedding or 2 this Summer!! They're so pretty, and they're nude so they'll go with a lot! (which made Joseph feel better about the price tag...they weren't that bad, FYI) I also got some much needed Spanx..for the dress, and just to make myself feel better while I'm losing the pregnancy weight. I've never had Spanx before and am excited to try them out! After our quick mall outing, we picked up a few things at Publix and headed home. It was nice to get out in the real world again for a little while. ;-) I missed seeing my mom on Mother's Day, but I'm glad I got to spend so much time with her last week when we were staying with them due to the power outage from the storms. I have the best mother (& father) in the entire world and I truly don't know where I'd be without her. I feel so blessed to have her in my life.

Today we had Hudson's 2 week checkup (even though he'll be 3 weeks old in 2 days!). It went great! He has surpassed his birth weight and now weighs in at 8 lbs. 11 oz. His birth weight was 8 lbs. 3 oz. Not too shabby! It makes me feel relieved to know he's getting enough to eat! The boy's a hog, but I sometimes worry he's not getting enough. Well, I'm no longer worrying. ;) The doctor was very pleased with his growth and weight gain and said he's one healthy boy! We go back in June for his 2 month checkup. I'm dreading those shots!! :(

I hope y'all had a fantastic Mother's Day weekend, whether you're a mother or not! My first Mother's Day wasn't filled with tons of excitement, but it was filled with tons of time spent with the two men who made me a mother...and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I love these two more than anything!!
