M O R N I N G 🌤
This morning I rocked you to sleep. I know I don’t have to do it. I know I don’t need to do it. But I wanted to do it.
We sat on the couch. You had your morning meditation which smells just like banana lollies 🤤. I popped your num num in (dummy for those playing along 🙈). I passed you Dino (who smells like vomit, urine and some other nasty shit) and snuggled you in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today you didn’t fight it. Today you closed your eyes and held my hand. You stroked my face, played with my hair and rubbed your face on Dino. And it was so effing cute 😚.
I carried you to bed, your legs wrapped right around my body and that’s when I realised just how much you’re growing. I can’t cradle you in one arm to shut the blinds or get your swaddle ready. I have to be extra careful going through doorways and in between your bed and mine- limbs galore 🙈.
But we managed and you’re sound asleep with Dino and Ollie Owl. 💛
You must have needed the snuggles just as much as I did darling boy. 🤱🏼 .
As i am sitting here getting more frustrated with her homework as if it were mine,God said you are raising a strong willed child. Those are your leaders, those that stand their ground and can be a bit stubborn. All of which my child displays but the most loving, kind hearted, pure heart child i know. Then God spoke to me and told me how to combat my frustrations into prayers for her. Mikayla is unique, she is just as called by God as I am. So as I am molding myself as her mom I must also pour that into her. In my own strength i know i will fall. So I’m thankful the Holy Spirit leads me in how to deal with her unique personality. If you have a child that’s strong willed pray for them, encourage them and speak into them. Ask God to help you parent them and understanding what works for your child. #truths#strongwilleddaughters#breakingbarriers#transparent#amotherslove#sharingmyheartthroughmytruths

After an eventful morning his now home in bed on his way to being better ! Started the morning at school. He said he was sick and I thought he just didn’t want to go to school so I said to stay at school and see how you feel. I continued to goto work which I was only there for 20 mins before receiving a call from his day care that he has vomited everywhere ! So I leave work to pick my little man up.

3 years ago you came into our life’s and created wonderful chaos with a whirlwind of cheeky smiles, lovely cuddles and that happy laugh! You have had a big year this year with so many new things to overcome and met every mile stone head on without hesitation. Mummy and daddy could not be prouder of the big brother you have become and the wonderful little boy you are. With you I learn something new every day and the day I held you in my arms was the day I knew I’d found my calling. Being yours and Edwards mummy is the best adventure ever. I can’t wait to spoil you my darling boy tomorrow. Love you so much it’s unreal #amotherslove#threetomorrow#cantbelievehowtimeflies#family#myboy#myeldest#familyfirst#lovehim#love#mummyloveyou
That one day when I needed a break from life and went to the beach, blanket spread out, sketch pad and pencil in hand. This is where I feel most centered. As I looked up, I saw a mother and her young son, enjoying the sunset. It was a beautiful, innocent moment and as a mother myself, it made my heart warm. Just as I snapped the photo, a bird flew over their heads, as if protecting them. I later stopped the woman as she left the beach, so I could share with her this image. It cost nothing to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, nor does it cost anything to stop and smell the roses and be kind to a stranger. Amazing things happen when we take the time to be still and be present. 🙏🏻 #bepresent#floridasunset#amotherslove#metime#enlightment#bestill
I love to photograph moms-to-be so much, and more than ever now! Motherhood has been the most beautiful, unexpected change I've ever experienced and it's so wonderful to document that change for someone else. Happy Tuesday, my friends!
A mother has shared a heartbreaking photo of her terminally-ill dad sobbing next to her cancer-ridden daughter, 5, after finding out they will die within weeks of each other. Ally Parker's five-year-old daughter is fighting a losing battle against an aggressive form of brain cancer, while her father is terminally-ill with a motor neuron disease. The mother from Florida now faces the grim prospect of having to bury both her daughter and father within weeks of each other. So she uploaded a gut-wrenching photo to Facebook on Sunday showing her father, Sean Peterson, wailing by his granddaughter's hospital bed. They are currently collecting donations via a GoFundMe page that seeks to raise $300,000 for the procedures. Swipe ⬅️ for more.

This mother was diagnosed with a rare eye cancer when she was 8 months pregnant - she decided to have her eye removed to protect her unborn children from the cancer spreading. Jessica Boesmiller and her twins are now happy and healthy! ❤️ #cutelittletrio#amotherslove#amotherssacrifice
The most precious gift one can get is a mothers hand. The hands that hold your hand, the hands that wipes away your tears, the hands that feeds you, the hands that bathes you, the hands that tucks you in at night but best of all the hands that holds you close to her heart! ♥️🙏🏼🌹 #amotherslove#amothershand
Our sunbeam has been lighting up our lives for THREE YEARS now. When she entered our world, she brought with her power + grace that I had never known. Her birth wrecked me in the best possible way, bringing me to the end of all I knew only to find the truest version of myself. I don’t have many pictures to capture that day, but what I remember most was the euphoria of heaven meeting earth + handing me the most beautiful cherub baby. It felt surreal, I felt more powerful than I ever had before + so overwhelmingly humbled that I was chosen to nurture + care for her. I was hers + she was mine. Reflecting on her birthday always reminds me of the truth that I was made for this. She filled me with the courage + boldness only she could. She ignited a fierceness in me that I needed. She showed me strength that I never knew I had. I did it for her then + I do it for her today. Bringing her into this world will forever be my greatest accomplishment + raising her is by far my greatest privilege. She changed me for the better + continues to prove that true every single day. // #elioraskye#mysunbeam
