on being a mom...

Some of my favorite things about motherhood...
(in no particular order)

meeting my babies for the first time


doing special and creative art projects

seeing my husband with our kids


watching them discover their new found bravery

celebrating first birthdays...and every birthday after


never knowing what they will do next


watching their confidence grow


handmade dresses from Nana


reliving memories of my own childhood
handmade treasures

reading
working in the kitchen


seeing my kids together
hotel bubble baths

watching them face their fears

passing on my childhood traditions

watching them embrace a passion for things


seeing them experience true wonder

quiet times

an excuse for ice cream

bathtime at home

the first days of school


being strong when they get hurt
There are many more reasons why I love being a mom..
too many to list here.
Happy Mother's Day!

one more thing...getting a fantastic shot of both kids!
