Oh wait... Mother's Day is TODAY!

Somehow (and I really don't know how) I did not realize that Mother's Day was this weekend. I guess I win the bad daughter/daughter-in-law award this year. So while you wait for your gifts to arrive, know that I love you mom!

The signs were there - millions of commercials on TV, gift ideas all over my browser's home page, flowers and cards in the stores, and not to mention the 540 kids carrying home plants in yogurt cups, tissue paper flowers, poems, and homemade picture frames for their mommies. I guess I've had other things on my mind...

The big news for us is we have started our adventure with fertility treatment, and so far it's been a lot of drugs, a lot of doctor appointments, and a lot of $$$. But it will all be worth it if next year there's a little Howe with us here on Mother's Day. Wish us luck!

This year we had a quite evening at home and Dave grilled us some delicious steaks out in the rain. What a guy!

Hubby and I are in the same situation. We're a little ways into the actual treatments after trying unsuccessfully on our own for a few years. It's certainly not any fun, but like you said, *hopefully* worth it in the end. :)

Yea! We want a little Howe! Good luck to y'all! You're already getting ahead on FHE lessons... good idea! I should do the same. Way to go, Dave for spoiling you with delicious steak. =)

Good luck Mel! I will be praying for you and I can't wait for you to get your little Howe. You are strong and amazing... and... I wish we lived closer and I could see you!

We're praying for you! I may even spoil a little Howe baby more than Anne- I didn't learn to sew until she was 6 months old:) You may end up with a complete wardrobe! Steak sure sounds good- our hotel cooking is a bit pathetic
