Happy Birthday Nana!

Sheesh. Yes, we have had a LOT of birthdays lately. Today is Nana’s birthday, and we are not done for January, yet!

Apparently, one of the many things I learned from my mom was how to elude the camera.  This photo was taken the day Addie and I came home from the hospital, the day after she was born. That would be two years and four months ago. (But tell me Emma isn’t freakin’ a-dore-able in that photo!)

I just don’t have many pictures of my mom to choose from, but every one that I do have she is either cuddling up with one of my or one of Meesh’s girls. I think it is safe to say that she loves being a mom, but she adores being Nana.

What is that saying?  You can’t really appreciate someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes? Um, maybe I just pieced two different sayings together, I’m not sure. But at any rate, I think I have always had a healthy appreciation for my mom, but after becoming a mom, that appreciation has risen to a whole different level.

She has taught me so much about being a mom. And she passed on to me, some of her creative genes. (You think I’m crafty? There is not a craft that this woman has not tackled, and been successful at!)

Today we celebrate our Mom and Nana. And we are wishing you many more happy years. I’m hoping for a lot more time to learn even more from and with you.

You should probably know, though – the camera is coming out next time we are together. And I will get photos. 🙂

Happy Birthday, Nana! We love you.
