My first Mother’s Day with my rainbow baby!
I’ve been feeling a little emotional with Mother’s Day right around the corner. First I gotta say, wow moms! WOW! I knew your job was hard but just wow. You’re all damn angels!! I see you! I’ve never been happier to have this little nugget of a sidekick and his angel sister but it’s a really hard job! As a rainbow mama, I feel extra guilty if I’m anything but blissful even for a second. There was a minute there in the beginning of breastfeeding with his tongue tie that I thought I was gonna lose it, it was so painful. I’ve been learning so much! I’m so grateful to have such a strong mama tribe! This has been the most beautiful experience of my life! His smile is worth it all and more! He’s the most magical thing I’ve ever been lucky enough to experience💫
I remember last Mother’s Day I was so sad without my Lily girl. We went on a little adventure to get our minds off things and it was so nice. The next day I found out I was pregnant with Stone! The journey to getting him into my arms was a long one but now that he’s here I’ve promised to be as present as possible and to soak up every one of these minutes that seem to be flying by. I’m in love with the hardest job I’ve ever had. Motherhood❤️
So excited for my first Mother’s Day with an earth side baby to celebrate with! As much as I miss Lily, I feel her all around me and I see her in Stone. I’m so grateful for that. My version of motherhood is a unique one and that’s ok. Thanking both my babies for choosing me and making me a mama❤️ I’m so grateful I’m sitting here with tears in my eyes as I write this.
I've added a few of my favorite shots from some of the shoots I did while I was pregnant. The first two pairs are by Danielle DeBruno, the third pair by Corlene Byrd and the fourth pair by Ashley Myers! I'll be doing a full blog post on each shoot soon. Slowly catching up!
Happy Mothers day to all the mamas with babies earth side and without <3
