Sitting in the Sunlight: Miracles of We

by flowers on April 11, 2011 · 9 comments

After many months of growing and changing for you… After hours and hours of sweating and laboring for you… After many more months of adjusting and making room for you… One morning I wake up and, almost as if nothing has happened, you are here: sitting in the morning sunlight like you were born to [...]

I’ve been preoccupied these past weeks, but every chance I get I pick it up just to soak in its loveliness. Well written and full of stunning photos of both beautiful babies and sumptuous [...]
