Baby Love and Motherhood

I’m so excited to be linking up with the Ado at The Momalog for Alison’s Baby Bash – Congratulations Alison!!!

Our prompt: Write a post with your favorite baby photo telling us why it’s your favorite, and include your favorite quote about motherhood.

This was taken at the hospital the day my son was born. I was so taken with how beautiful and perfect he was (is).

When I was pregnant, I’d look at my ultrasound pictures and try to imagine what he would look like. What it would feel like to hold him, what his voice would sound like and what he himself would be like.

Are there even words to describe seeing your baby for the first time? Holding them? Taking in that new baby smell and looking in to their eyes for the first time?

It is pure love, there are no other words.

After a difficult pregnancy and fairly easy delivery, I can’t describe how happy and excited I was the day my son was born.

This was my husband’s first child. When we’d visit friends, I was all about holding and cuddling people’s babies but he seemed uncomfortable and never wanted to hold them.

As soon as our son was born, my husband wouldn’t put him down. I cannot tell you how much this made my heart sing.

A year of two before I met my husband, I’d basically given up on having more children or finding a great man, being in a happy relationship or ever getting married again.

This picture reminds me that good things are possible. Love is possible. This beautiful baby boy was my impossible miracle.

    • Thank you so much Stasha! I have to fight off the baby fever, seeing all these beautiful baby pictures people are posting. I miss when he was so little…you guys are great party planners, I had a great time with these posts!

  1. You know how when you’re pregnant everybody tries to tell you how much you’ll love and admire your own baby but that you won’t think that other people’s babies are so cute and endearing as yours? Well holy cuteness, your baby is so perfect and beautiful in that photo it breaks all rules. He is adorable and I love this photo! Thanks for linking up to help celebrate Alison! (-:

    • Oh my gosh -thank you so much! Of course I think he’s beautiful and perfect but what a compliment to hear it from other moms as well :) I had so much fun doing these baby shower posts, thank you guys for putting such a fun online party together!

  2. That is my absolute favorite quote about motherhood. I had to find another before posting mine, as I didn’t want to give the impression I was plagiarizing the fab Mommy Padawan. ;) Your entire post is lovely. I love how you described your husband’s experience with your new born son. And yes, he was just perfect…and he still is. <3

    • Oh no! I would have shared the quote with you! Thank you so much for reading Kim! Baby pictures are so beautiful…my husband really surprised me (in a good way) and still often does :)

    • Thank you so much! Yes, I think even the first few days or weeks with your new baby are amazing…exhausting but amazing :)
