In all honesty, I don't appreciate the occasion myself. Why limit yourself to just one day a year where you show someone you care? My first Mother's Day was nothing short of ordinary. It still involved nappies and bottles and baby drool. I see love in my daughter's eyes every day, so at this present moment in time "Mother's Day" is merely an insignificant phrase.
As HSS pointed out, the moment Morgan gives me some Mother's Day gift, my heart will probably melt and I'll start appreciating the 'holiday'.
So yeah, anyway.
Things are proceeding well. With HSS, everything is going smoothly and I'm happy. I have Morgan, and I have HSS - I want nothing more.
Today, I'm meant to receive a phone call form work regarding my return. I'm hoping it happens earlier in the day rather than later so that I won't have to wait around. Fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly!
So, updates where Morgan is concerned.
On Saturday afternoon, she went out ON HER OWN for the first time.
My parents took her to Valletta with them. I was so nervous about it! They got there and back by bus, so I was concerned that the pram might topple over at any point if they didn't manage to hold it properly. Apparently, everything went well and my dad held Morgan for about 10 seconds for the first time. When I was told he panicked, I couldn't help but laugh at the idea of a grown man not knowing what to do when faced with amusing a child.
Morgan also had her FIRST SLEEPOVER without me on that same day! Since it was Date Night, and my mum and grandma hadn't seen Morgan in quite a few days, I agreed to have my mum babysit rather than a friend. This meant that I could find some time to tidy up the house and not worry about having to get home early enough to have a decent night's sleep [or rather, attempted decent night's sleep] since I didn't have to wake up for the first bottle of the day.
All went well thankfully.
I missed her sorely though. The house isn't a home without her. It was way too quiet - in spite of her being a quiet baby. I missed her tiny nose snoring the night away and her occasional whimpering.
At one point, my brain kicked into Mummy-mode without me realising it. As I was talking to HSS, he yawned and my hand automatically shot out and covered his mouth - just like I do to Morgan. We both burst out laughing and he started going through all the things I tend to tell Morgan whenever she yawns and I try to convince her to make sounds whilst I tap her mouth.
Now, I'm off to face the day. Coffee summons!
