Easter Recap...

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

My Easter Sunday was quiet and
pretty much spent with
family at my parents' home.

I made a little egg hunt for Sophia,
it was really cute seeing her carry her
basket and picking up all the eggs.

Afterwards, we ate lunch and opened
 baskets filled with presents and
plenty of yummy chocolates. After all
the commotion, it was time for some much
 deserved nap time, for some reason the best naps
are usually on Sundays afternoons.

At night, we headed to church for Easter service.
 Giving thanks, remembering the sacrifice
and the true meaning of Easter - JESUS.

Just Being a Mom

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

The pictures above are my favorites from
both of my pregnancies. The one on the left,
I was pregnant with Sophia and the one
on the right with Ian.
One of the greatest things I treasure
in my life is being a mom.
It's beyond anything that I've
imagined. This quote from Elizabeth Stone
somehow it sums up everything:
“Making the decision to have a child is momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go
walking around outside your body.”
Isn't beautiful?
That's exactly how I feel about
my children.

I'm always hugging and kissing my kids
because I think is never enough.
I love squeezing their cheeks just
because they're so darn cute and
very squeezable!
Now, I'm always catching Sophia kissing Ian
and squeezing his cheeks just like I do to them.
It's adorable.

I love the way they smell, it's a very sweet scent
that they have and very different too.
It's funny how I can remember their scent when
I'm not near them and how happy it makes me feel.
I'm always wondering about their future
and how fast they're growing up,
I wish I could slow time just a little bit
or rewind it.
I am just being mom.

Do you feel the same way as I do?
