I count too!

So Jerrid and I got into a huge debate on whether or not I count for Mother's Day! It's not too big of a deal for me, I understand that I have not physically birthed a child, but I do have a living little bundle of joy inside my belly wiggling around. I think these kicks right in the lungs should count for something!

Today was a beautiful Sunday Mother's Day! My family decided to come by and visit. They are over in Fort Lauderdale, which is about an hour away from Naples (where I am right now with Jerrid while he is in season with the Florida Firecats Arena football team). My mommy, brother, sister in law, and both neices stopped by for a few hours and spent some quality time with Jerrid and I at our apartment.

Everyone thought my baby bump was adorable and were so excited about the baby! My neices, which are 8 and 6, are especially excited about having a little cousin! They were non-stop with the questions!

"Can we teach him how to read?"
"Can we teach him how to ride a bike?"
"Can we this...can we that..."

It was precious and really warmed my heart to know my baby is going to be so loved by them!

Anywhoo, here are some pictures from the weekend.

Jerrid and I hung out at the local malls around here in Naples over the weekend. His team had left for Arkansas and since Jerrid's knee was still bugging him, he stayed home and recovered. He needed the rest, but I don't think I gave him as much rest as he needed since I dragged him from mall to mall with me.

Here is my updated baby bump! 37 weeks!

I made cupcakes for my family! I got the Funfetti ones since I knew my neices would love the colors in the middle! I used football themed cupcake paper. Jerrid loved that!

Look...they love them!

I hope all of you had a WONDERFUL Mother's Day!

  1. How cute are you?!?! I had that same debate on Mother's day when I was preggers ... you are a Mommy from the time you concieve that little baby. From day one we are nurturing and mothering, so yes I believe it counts for something, too!!!

  2. Wow @ having a debate. lol
    You're a mother, just because you haven't actually had the child yet doesn't mean anything.

    Glad you had a good time.
    Those cupcakes look great!

  19. You ARE a mother. You have a LIVING baby, the cutie just hasnt come out to say hello yet. but you take care of your baby - nurture, feed, love, support, encourage. I hte when people say you arent a mom yet, I have friends who were pregnant and they husbands didnt give them a card or anything, it breaks my heart, youre just as much as a mom as you will be next year. Its a celebration for YOU, and Im so glad you had such a beautiful day! I already commented these pics on facebook and all but I cant help it, I cant get over how drop dead gorgeous you are!! Ahhh, such a beautiful mom!! :)

    And again, I want those delicious cupcakes!!
