i don't know how i forgot to post about this! jay and the girls got my some very nice presents for mother's day; opal earrings for audrey's birth stone (i got some aquamarine the first mother's day after hadley was born) and a pedicure which i can definitely use before the cruise! however, the best present i received was on friday when hadley was going off to bed and said "i love you, mommy"! she has said i love you for some time but never put anyone's name with it; just made my weekend! then saturday morning i was off to run an errand and she said it again but added "kisses" this time so i came back around the corner and she comes running up to share kisses. these little moments are what it is all about!
