Perfectly Imperfect


Hi y'all!

I hope you had a fabulous Mother's Day. And for those of you, who are waiting to become mothers, I hear you.  I know how hard it can be.  If you ever want some internet support, I'm here.

Today I want to talk about non perfection.



There are so many imperfections in these shots--my face all dark, a crooked pink bow and hello spit bubbles!  I thought kids were supposed to be cooperative in photo shoots for the beginning at least!

But I love these photos so, so much anyway. Mostly because of her eyes, which look bright and happy and mischievous all at once.  How I love those sweet grey eyes, and the beautiful soul that shines out of them.

Sometimes the strength of my emotions surprises me, and at random moments. Like today, when I watched her in my rearview mirror and thought, I love her more every day.  I love all the bits and pieces of her. I can't believe I had a hand in creating her. I just can't wait to see what she does in this world of ours.

This real, flesh and blood, wakes up in the middle of the night, perfectly imperfect baby, is more than I ever could have dreamed of all those years of waiting.

  1. And I will tell you that the feeling doesn't go away! Mine are 10 and almost 5 and I still look at them some days in awe. And think about the future :)
    Although some days I do want to pull my hair out, but really the good outweighs all else! :)
