Favorite Mother's Day Photos

Eva Grandma

This photo...
proof as to why grandmas are the very best.

My parents Skyped us tonight.
Just to see Eva.

I never imagined how fun it would be to see my parents as grandparents.
It is great.


I saw this photo for the very first time yesterday.
I think someone might have shown me before, but I didn't like it then.

I still had Bells Palsy, my face was numb and my smile was weird.
Dark circles and glazed over eye balls.
We were so SO tired, we could have slept where we were sitting.

But it is amazing to me now.
Us, as a family.
Brand new.

Eva so tiny and red.
Hours old.

Just bathed beside our bed and asleep.
Both of us shell shocked.

I love it now.
Our faces crack me up.
We have no idea what we have just gotten ourselves into to.

I never thought that tiny creature would turn my own mother into a horse...
and she would grin and laugh the entire time.

Love you mom.

PS - this was supposed to be posted earlier...
but with my amazing husband becoming a pirate,
I got sidetracked.

Such a sweet post!! Happy Mother's Day. I had Bell's Palsy after I gave birth to Isabelle, 2 days after to be exact. Yours is not noticeable at all!! Confession: I have been terrified of getting it again ever since then!!
