I heart my mom.

Becoming a mother has made me more grateful and appreciative of my own mother than I can explain in words. My respect and admiration for her has always been huge, but now it's just ridiculous. 

When Ruby was first born and Ryan went back to work my incredible mom came to stay with us for a week. She helped me more than I could ever explain - cooking, cleaning, reminding me to eat and holding Ruby while I slept. 
Everyone needs a mom when they first become a mom. I hope that someday I can be as helpful to Ruby when she is a new mom. I love this picture of Ruby and my mom.

Your mom is awesome, Amber! I'm so happy for you both, and even more, for Ruby-- it's great that she could experience that first incredible week of life getting regular hugs from your mom. It's so fun to see the pics on your blog and to keep up with your new-mom life. I can't wait to see Ruby, you and Ryan at Phil's wedding next month!

Your Mom is the best, Amber! What a great experience for all 3 of you to spend time together. I am loving your blogs and pics. Seems like just yesterday I was in your shoes, being a new mom and adjusting to a new Andrew is 14!!! Take care and enjoy every little moment!

This made me cry and now I have to go and fix my make-up.
