i'm a momma!

Happy Mother's Day! My first Mother's Day as a Mom. Last year felt special too because we were well on our way and I knew I was going to be a Mom. Today I woke up to a gurgling baby boy and pancakes and then church. We got to introduce Silas to our family here that has been praying for him this entire time. It was very special. The Scripture passage preached from was none other than Paul and Silas in prison in Acts. Then super husband grilled a delicious lunch and let me relax. Wonderful day.

But how do I really know that I'm a Mom?

I'll tell you. I ordered a bathing suit last night. It comes with a skirt. Nuff said.

Lord, thank you for the blessing of Silas. You know that I've wanted to be a mother for a long time. I am thankful for Your perfect plan for my life and how now I can truly look back and see it....You are Perfect. Becoming a Mom is beautiful and straight from You. There is no way a union like this could be from anyone but You. Totally worth the wait.

Happy 1st Momma's Day! The first of many to come. I also thought it was fitting that we were reading about Silas at chapel on Silas' first day there.
Sounds like Marshall did a great job making the day special for you too!

Happy Mother's Day...first one of many to come. I read your blog daily and it touches me so much and further strengthens my faith that God is all-knowing and that He knew Silas was yours from the very beginning! Don't worry about the skirt...I finally bought one...I am 40 with 4 kids. It is cute, though! I can't wait to see ya'll this summer at home. Katy keeps me informed. I love you and your sweet baby is absolutely beautiful! Keep on doing what you are doing because now you are the Momma! I love you, Jill! Leslie Gilmore
