Wow guys, choosing a winner for the Baby Gourmet Mother's Day Contest was really hard. So many great heart-felt mom memories. Your entries made me laugh out loud, they made me smile, and they made me cry. In the end I pared it down to my 24 favourites, and then let random.org sort it out.
And the winner is...
mamawee from Tales of Mommyhood.
Her first year motherhood memory:
My favorite moment is the first time I successfully nursed my son. He spent the first 10 days in the NICU hooked up to machines, and I was only able to hold him a handful of times. When we were sent home at 11days, he had never nursed. It took some time, but once he latched on we had a great nursing relationship. I still remember the amazement, wonder, love and joy I felt in that single moment when we figured it out.
Thanks so much to Baby Gourmet for sponsoring such a cool contest. The winner has 12 hours to respond to my email, after which I'll redraw. Thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to enter. I really enjoyed reading through your precious mom moments. I hope you all have an awesome Mothers Day this weekend.
