Mommy Moments Blog Hop

I am so excited to be hosing the Mommy Moments Blog Hop this week! If you are new to Suddenly Snowden I hope you'll stay a while!

This week's topic is How did you and your family spend Mother's Day?

Well we didn't celebrate just Mother's Day this year... we also celebrated our son's dedication AND his first birthday!! Yes, a very big Mother's Day indeed!

Both sets of grand parents arrived on Saturday morning to enjoy the day with us. We had such a wonderful time catching up and letting Parker show everyone all his new tricks! He was so busy kissing everyone and showing them just how BIG he is with his arms high over his head.

Parker and his grandparents:

Sunday was wonderful! It was just so fun and exciting for so many reasons:

First of all it was Mother's Day. Technically my second Mother's Day but it felt like my first. Last year Parker was one-day-old on Mother's Day and it was our first 24-hours in the NICU. It just didn't feel like Mother's Day. But this year, it very much did and between Honey and Baby Parker and both of our families, it was celebrated so wonderfully!

The three mommies on Mother's Day:

Secondly this was the day we dedicated Parker's life to God. We attended a wonderful ceremony at our church this morning! Honey and I read a statement we had prepared to describe our goals as Parker's parents and what we were going to do to encourage Parker to become a strong man of integrity. Having our parents there to hear this statement will help as they will hold us accountable to our goals as we raise him. It was such a touching moment. What a blessing family is!


Finally, and most importantly, it was Parker's FIRST birthday! His birthday party is this coming weekend but of course we had to celebrate the day of his birth with cake and presents. It was so fun to watch him experience cake for the first time and as always he loves opening presents! 


Such a wonderful Mother's Day. Dedication Day. Birthday. Three reasons to celebrate. This Mother's Day was certainly a day I'll remember forever!

How did you and your family celebrate Mother's Day? 

The most viewed link from last week's Mommy Moments was the post titled Oh What A Day from Whitney at Miss Mama Me.
Whitney shares a little bit of the realities of motherhood and some of those not so great days! I love her perspective and sense of humor. Who could be mad at this cute face for long?
