Almost Mother's Day

PhotobucketThis is one of my favorite pictures from my pregnancy with Jakey. It was taken just a few days before he was born and Jason had just barely started to understand about me having a baby. He would come up and kiss my belly and say "Baby!". This picture brings to mind all the feelings of motherhood for me. The joy of pregnany, excitement to meet the new baby, anxiety for the birth, fear that I wouldn't be able to handle 2 kids, love for Jason, sadness that Jason wasn't going to be my only little baby anymore, exhausted, worried, hopeful, happy, and so many more emotions that describe being a mother.

I'm excited that Mother's Day is coming up soon! I love celebrating the fact that I have two wonderful little boys and another little blessing on the way. I can't imagine life without my children.
