Happy Mother's Day week! In celebration of the day, I wanted to share a few images from our first family-of-3 photo session. A few weeks ago, my Indy bestie Valerie took some family photos of us around town (I've now realized that I've mentioned her for three blog posts in a row...sorry Val ha!). She captured our family perfectly, and I am forever grateful to her for these.
I can't tell you how much these images mean to me! I get a little teary eyed when I look at them. For those who know me, you know how deeply I treasure photographs. Add having a baby (MY baby) and then those photos get all the more special.
So my child is pretty stingy with the smiling. Y'all have no clue what I had to do to get those grins ;). He obviously thinks his mama is crazy.
Pier, thank you for making me a mama. The mystery of motherhood has been life's biggest curve ball, but it is truly a gift beyond my understanding. I am grateful that the Lord entrusted this vocation to me, and I look forward to growing and learning more about it as the years pass by. To all the mamas, soon to be mamas, not yet mamas, mamas of all kinds -- I hope you feel loved this week. God bless you. St. Zelie Martin, pray for us.
