Sunday marks my very first Mother’s Day! 🙂 I can’t believe it! The past eight months have flown by and I can’t believe that my little man will be one in just a few short months! My husband and I plan on celebrating by doing a little brunch with the three of us at home on Sunday. I wanted to keep it quiet and low-key, especially because brunch will be around nap time. 🙂
With this being my first Mother’s Day, it will also be my mom and mother in law’s first grand-mother’s day! I thought we could make this day a bit more special by doing something for them from Greyson instead of from us because without them Greyson wouldn’t even be here!
We plan on spending Saturday with Jeff’s grandma, so she can see her great grandson. She recently moved up to Connecticut and met him for the first time a few weeks ago. We really want Greyson to get to know her because we think it is SO COOL that he has a great grandma! We got her a little picture frame that says “Great Grandma” and we plan on putting a picture from the first time they met each other in the frame.
For my mom and mother in law, I got these really cool soy personalized candles from Amazon! I wanted something that they could look at each day and think of Greyson instead of jewelry which my mom and mother in law aren’t too fond of. My mom’s candle is cucumber melon scented and my mother in law’s is rosemary mint. They both smell SO GOOD! I love how I could personalize the label on the top and the side with a message for them and I even got to choose the font! They were very easy to order and they arrived on my door in less than a week! I know that Mother’s Day is Sunday, but if you upgrade shipping hopefully you can snag a candle or two. I think these would also be great for birthdays, graduations, etc because you can customize the label with whatever you want! Can’t wait to give them to my family this weekend!
If you want to order, my Amazon affiliate link is linked in my post! Happy first Mother’s Day to the other new moms out there and I hope you all get to spend this weekend snuggling with your babies and enjoying family time.
