I take a lot of pics. I do it because each moment means something special to me. Each one a moment I can't get back.
I'm allowed to be ridiculously picture obnoxious. I'm allowed to be sentimental.
I'm allowed to celebrate every milestone even if it's something so minor.
I'm a mom.
That's what we do.
My heart is just so full all the time that I can't help it. It spills over into pictures and status's and conversations with anyone who is willing to listen.
I overflow because there was a time I wasn't sure I'd ever be a mom. There was this hole that couldn't be filled by any amount of success or love from my husband.
I just knew that's what I wanted in life from the time I was a young girl. I had other dreams too but they always included kids. I used to carry around baby dolls til it wasn't cool to. I pretended all the time I was pregnant. Maybe the example came from my own mom who just did it so darn perfectly and loved us so hard.
But I just knew.
Owen makes me want 10. Realistically probably just one more but no matter what I accomplish in life I can't imagine doing anything bigger or more amazing than being someone's mommy.
