mother's day

happy mother's day to the very best mom there ever was...


(i'm the baby in that tummy)
(how about that JPII shirt i'm sporting?  pretty cool, eh?)
(do we scream early 90's or what?)


and, of course, a very happy mother's day to my other moms as well...




i love you all so very much.

What a beautiful post, Emily! I cannot get over how much you look like your mom in those photos...and how much Finn looks like you as a kid!

In my quest to join the willows blog i looked at this--a perfect tribute to your mom, who was absolutely one of the best people I have ever known. i LOVED every picture and am always honored when people tell me I look like my Aunt Lynnie--lucky me.

em, I know I didn't really get a chance to know your mom that well, but I do know what an amazing mother you are and I'm sure she plays a huge role in that. Your children are so lucky to have a piece of their grandmother in you. I know this is really cheesy and I've never posted a comment on your blog before, but I just couldn't pass it up. What is it about becoming a mom that makes you about a hundred times cornier than you ever thought you would be? Give me a call sometime so we can get our nutty kids together. Oh, and I don't know what it is about 3 year old boys, but Dylan is dying for a Peter Pan birthday too! He hasn't stopped talking about it since he turned 2!
