Do not tell me I'm not a "real mother yet" when I tell you that I'm going to celebrate mothers day.
Now that that's off my chest, onto the fun stuff! We forgot to take pics yesterday (we'll take them tonight) so, sorry about that. I've had a request to start doing weekly pics. Since now I'm 3rd trimester (27 weeks! Woohoo!) I think that makes sense :)
My wrists are so swollen that my once spacious watch band was pinching. Mat put two extra links in it last night. Thanks, sweetie! Between the watch, the "not a real mother" comment, and the stress of the rushing weekend, I had a break down... Mat held me and calmed me down. He's so good at that! I love him so much :)
We got our order of trees from the nursery on Thursday. Friday night we started planting. We started with the fruit trees, because they're the most fragile. We ordered bare root stock trees and most of our fruit trees are semi-dwarf. According to the woodstock nursery website, they should start producing in 3-5 years!

Two of the apple trees that we ordered are apples we've never tried before. When we were ordering last fall, we noticed they had Freedom and Liberty apple trees. Those are the names of the twins we lost! So we made sure to order one of each. We hope to get the rest of the trees in the ground soon, but we planted all of the budding trees, so we think we should be good.
