I had originally intended on writing this post for Mother’s Day, but as soon as I got these photos back from Stephanie I knew I couldn’t wait to share them!
I have always known from a young age that my purpose in life was to be a Mother. I envisioned myself being a homemaker with a big family and a pup or two. Growing up I always said I wanted 5 kiddos. Now I may be leaning more towards 3 😉
I love starting our days with play and ending them with bathtime and cuddles. I love how she lights up when I make silly noises and jump around like a crazy person! I love her personality, getting her dolled up, her baby rolls, her laugh. I love every thing about being Juliette’s Mom – even the not so glamorous things! I have wanted this for as long as I can remember and she makes things better then I could have imagined.
I have learned in the past six months that there are days, we all have them. Days where you’d give anything for just a little extra sleep or a hot uninterrupted shower. When the house is unorganized and the to do-list is long. But then there’s the precious reminder – her little face grinning and her arms reaching out for me. She warms my heart tenfold and it feels like nothing else matters. Even in the midst of sleep deprivation, some long days (and nights!) and any other hurdle a Mommy may jump over…the love I have for my little girl grows exponentially.
There is nothing more amazing then watching her little personality bloom, watching her discover new things day after day, and knowing that she loves me unconditionally. It truly is magic.
I’ve been trusted with the greatest role and it is not one I take lightly. I strive to be the best that I can be because of her. I want to cherish all of the little moments and create wonderful memories with her.
