Motherhood in pictures

Kristen at We Are THAT Family is having a giveaway and asking moms to show pictures the define "motherhood" for them. Here are some that mean the most to me....

For anyone that doesn't know, I had a less than desirable birth experience and had to be put under general anesthesia. Here are a couple of pictures from the recovery room as I was just waking up.

My mom. This picture speaks so much about a mother's love to me.

Awake enough to meet.

There is nothing that can prepare you for the exhaustion of the first days at home.

He rarely slept. So when he did, we wanted to take pictures.

The first time he had a really, really bad cold. My heart broke.

Kisses through the bike trailer.

That smile. I can't get enough of it.

Great pictures and post! Very touching. I, too, had a difficult birthing experience with my first and had to be put under general anesthesia and can totally empathize with that situation. I LOVE the picture of you and your mom in the hospital.

Happy Mother's Day Stephanie. I didn't know about your less-than-desirable birth experience - I'm sorry it was like that. I am so glad you got your sweet Jack though, and isn't that final photo awesome?!? (Like all the others!)
