I love my mom, and I love every outfit in this photo:

Thank you, Mom, for teaching me to be strong, smart, and independent. Thanks also for always listening to my medical woes and for teaching me an appreciation for vegetables. 

(Credit to my brother for sharing this photo on Facebook and letting me download it.)

 (Also: where can I find that ruffled blue outfit I'm wearing in non-baby sizes?)

Happy Mother's Day!
