Me & Maiya celebrating our first Mother's Day
Last year, I remember crying on Mother's Day because I didn't know if I would ever be a mother. I had had two miscarriages and had been trying to get pregnant for over two years. I was in the process of fertility treatments and was feeling very discouraged. Fast forward to Mother's Day 2005. My baby is exactly 3 months and 1 week old today. I am so completely happy to be Maiya's mama. It feels right and I am savoring and enjoying every precious moment.
Today, me, Tony & Maiya celebrated by going to the Hawaiian Mother's Day/Children's Day Arts & Crafts Festival in Little Tokyo, then went to The Talpa for mexican food afterwards (the restaurant we went to the night before I went into labor with Maiya). Aren't we cute in our matching red hibiscus aloha shirts that my cousin Jackie sent us from Hawai'i? Hey, I couldn't think of a better day for us to be "twins"!
Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas! And especially my best wishes and "baby dust" to all the women who are trying to conceive and want to be mamas. Aloha with Love!!!
