mamas & daughters

Sunday, May 11, 2014

I have many posts on my radar that I've been meaning to sit down and capture... Lorelai's baptism, my return to the workplace, Lorelai and Guinness' nurturing relationship, motherhood in general.. and yes some non-baby related things too. But time manages to escape me and I end up spending every second soaking up my baby girl and tiny family instead. Which is how it should be. But right now Lorelai is sound asleep, in only her diaper, on Brian's chest and Guinness is curled up at my feet and I want to document the wonderful weekend that we have had. Our first Mother's Day celebration.

And I couldn't possibly ask for anything more.

This was my first Mother's Day as a mother (to a human baby) and I couldn't have possibly imagined just how sweet it would be. This whole mama gig is amazing. I am grateful beyond measure that this little pea has made me her mama.

My heart aches though for all of the mothers who spent today longing for more. Mothers who have lost their littles, mothers still yearning for babies of their own, mothers waiting for adoptions and women who have lost their own mothers.

No matter how common, motherhood is a miracle. An absolute miracle.
