Matchy-Matchy: Mommy and Me DIYs

Happy Mother's Day!!  Hope all you mothers out there have a wonderful day!  The morning of Mother's Day 2009, I received the best present ever - our baby boy was born (3 weeks early) so that I could officially be a Mommy.  This Mother's Day, I get to celebrate with 2 children and I feel so very blessed :)

My kiddos <3

Both of us in our skirts.  I LOVE her little Popeye forearms :)

Matching polka dot skirts


Baby dress and Mommy skirt

 Rick-rack to add a little something to her dress

Matching striped belts

Many more to come!

And I'll leave you with my favorite Baby moments:
  • When she cups my face with both little hands and stares deep into my eyes, I feel like she's saying, "I love you, Mommy"  (I'll note here that hubby rolled his eyes when I told him this)
  • Kissing those chubby cheeks and seeing her smile as I do so
  • Her laugh out loud occasions
  • Seeing her get a kick out of blowing raspberries and getting spit everywhere
  • When she follows her big brother around with pure love in her eyes and a giant grin on her face
  • When big brother pats her on the arm and says, "It's ok, mui mui (little sis in Cantonese)" to comfort her during cranky moments
    • Or when he insists on holding his baby sister because he loves her
How are you celebrating Mother's Day?
