Hi Mom!

It's mother's day weekend so I thought I'd share some pictures of my Mom and I over the years.
You can't see me in this picture. I'm hiding in my Mama's belly that's hiding under that maternity tent dress.
 I only have some of my baby pictures so this is the earliest one of us together I could find. I got all my good looks from my Mama. Isn't she lovely?
I don't know how old I am in this picture. I'll guess around 9 months. Hey! That's how old Gideon will be this week!
My first birthday! My Mom used to always buy those candy letters for cakes when I was little. I have many fond memories of going to the store to buy them for my siblings' birthdays.
Dear Mom, you're not in this picture, but WHY DID YOU LET ME WEAR THIS SWIM SUIT!?!?! It doesn't even cover my baby boobies!
I am totally digging what my Mom is wearing in this picture. I want that dress. Also, my Mom looks so happy <3
 Mom and I after my first dance recital. See the awesome ballerina cake? Sorry about my frown - this was my first expereince with eyeliner.
 Skip ahead a couple years, I think I'm about 12 in this picture. I was super excited in this picture because I just had my hair cut with LAYERS for the first time ever.
I think I'm 18 in this picture. Annual family camping trip to the Rogue River. Everyone has to wear their vacation hat; it's a family tradition. Oh, and that's my little sister, Maggie, on my lap. She fails because she refused to wear her hat for longer than 5 minutes.
Mom and I on her 42nd birthday.  I look awful, but it's a good picture of us both, nonetheless. She gave birth to my brother, Walter, 10 days later.
Mom, excited to be a grandma soon! I was about 5 months pregnant. And yes, this matches the picture of me and my sister from earlier.
Mom and I feeding our babies; Gideon and my youngest brother, Tommy. Mom taught me so much about mothering. It's very special to have a picture of us both taking care of our kids together.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

P.S. Don't forget to check out my post from a couple years ago where I talk about my Mom and Sarah Palin.
