I Heart Mommys

This weekend I had the privilege to spend mother's day with my sister on her first mother's day! While I missed spending time with my mom on this Hallmark celebration of motherhood (I am a firm believer in celebrating my mom's amazingness 365 days a year!) I was super excited to watch Avi enjoy the first of many mother's day with the one and only Noam!

We spent the holiday weekend on the Oregon Coast and hung out on the beach and in the local small town.  Noam loved all the one-on-one time with his mommy (and daddy, of course).  And I loved the opportunity to capture some great pictures of Avi and her little guy!
It has been so amazing to watch Avi as a mom the last 6 months.  She loves this little guy more than words can describe.  The look on her face when she gets home from work and the smile on his face every time he catches her eye is priceless.  I may have strongly disliked when as a kid Avi tried to act as my other mother, but today she is amazing and Noam couldn't have asked for a more awesome mommy! 

I love you something crazy Avi, here is to many, many, many more mother's days.  Noam is so lucky to have you as his rockstar mom!
