it is my complete privilege to be called “mama” by this sweet baby girl each day. i can’t count how many times throughout our days together that she touches my heart in the sweetest ways possible and makes this life so worth living.
as all children do, eleanor brought the most joyful love into our home last february, a love which keeps on expanding by leaps and bounds each and every day. i absolutely adore, with all my heart, being her mama. and i get butterflies of excitement in my stomach just thinking about the baby boy i get to meet in a few weeks who will someday also learn to call me “mama” as well. that word, by golly, it’s a good one.
happy mother’s day to all you fabulous mothers, motherly figures and future mamas out there! and a special thank you to my own beautiful mother and mother-in-law who we love very much. those two ladies are seriously the best.
happy mother’s day!

    about a week ago you posted this good or bad mum post. And i can tell you that you're the most perfect mum for eleanor and your baby boy. Because you love them. in every single word you write about them is love. there is now way not to see that you love them. Even if ou let Eleanor eat nutella or other not soo healthy stuff, you wanna see her happy and not sad and crying and that makes you the perfect mother for E. and baby boy. Happy Mother's day!!

  6. Aww that is so sweet.
    Happy mothersday!

    The photo on this post is amazing. It makes me quite emotional and I can't really explain why. It just makes me so happy and excited for the time in my life when I will be a mom myself. Anyway bless you and your beautiful family!
