The First Moments of Motherhood

 

It’s “Sincere Snapshot Saturday” – it’s not really a thing, but it is for me! I’d like to start sharing a picture or few on occasional Saturdays.

But not the filtered, perfectly posed, not really reflective of my life (because as beautiful as my life may be it looks nothing like a Pottery Barn catalog) ones. I’ll be sharing the other ones, the real and honest ones.

In honor of Mother’s Day, here are some pics from my very first moments as a mother – I don’t typically share these because it still hurts to look at them, but they also bring me tremendous joy because I am so grateful and honored to have this sweet boy in my life and to know that he has grown into an amazing and wonderful 9 year old who fills in all the color to my world.
