Having my Mom with us during these difficult time was one of the most wonderful blessing we've had. She literally saved many of my days. Eating was quite challenging for me while on bed rest at the hospital. Having the pleasure of Filipino foods for meals made me feel a lot better. I very much appreciate my Mom's emotional and physical support and company when even getting up from my bed and walking to the restroom was such a difficult task to do. She took care of me like when I was her little girl. I am so glad she could be here and celebrate with us the beautiful addition to our family. I couldn't ask for more. She is such one proud Lola Rose!

I have been blessed with so much love from people around me. Moms are especially amazing. Mom Ellen with Jenny and Leah, Carl's sister and niece, sent us a package of mom and baby stuffs. The text messages and phone calls from family, friends and the Relief Societies in our ward and their well wishes and support were uplifting. Grandma Helen and Aunt Nancy came to visit as well with Christopher and Marc, Carl's nephews. We as well received well wishes cards from Carl's nieces and nephews. My pregnancy was definitely not an easy one but the love of those of you and your prayers and support made things bearable.

I especially appareciate the love and support of my dear husband. He is amazing and wonderful. He was always beside me and provided the needed support and love and much more. Whether with combed or uncombed hair, swollen face and unshowered days, he still thought I was beautiful. I and our daughters are lucky and blessed to have him.

I'm so happy your mom was able to come out. No one can take care of you quite like a mom does. It's a miracle that you can also be that kind of mom to your beautiful little girls.

I am so glad you could have your mom there! We always need our moms. When I was a newly-wed, my grandmother was sharing a bed with me when she came for a visit. She was missing her mother, who had just died at the age of 101. Though my grandmother was then 83 years old and had not lived with her mother since she married at 15, she was missing her. Mom S
