Sometimes, when I pick up my baby from her nap and she wraps her tiny little arms around my neck and burrows her head into my body...I am taken aback.

Swept away by love.

Amazed that this little creature trusts and loves me with everything she's got.

That she trusts and loves me more than anyone else on the entire planet (except for, maybe, her dad).

She depends on me. She needs me.

And in those moments, I realize just how blessed I am. Just how lucky I am to be a mother. Just how incredibly fortunate I am to have been trusted with these five lives.

It completely takes my breath away.


  1. There is nothing like it in the whole world...

  2. I know exactly what you mean! Children are amazing gifts!!

  3. I couldn't have said it better!!

  4. Oh goodness gracious - perfectly said! Sigh... I am sending up some prayers of thanksgiving tonight for sure.

  5. I totally agree. :)

  6. I can't wait to feel the same way...what a blessing.

  7. So very true...nothing like being a mommy! Makes me wish my little one was still awake so I could give her another hug and kiss tonight...first thing in the morning :)

  8. Nothing tops being a mom...except maybe being a grandma is a close second! (:>)

    You are blessed indeed!

  9. I absolutely know EXACTLY what you mean. It blows me away at times.

    Gave ya a big ol' blog award on my blog, lady!

  10. My baby is now six, and I still feel that with every power hug I get. It's the bestest. :)

  11. Such a sweet post! <3


  12. This made me tear up...This is why I am so eager to begin IVF...because I know all of the money, pain, and emotions will be worth it when I hold my sweet baby in my arms..

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
