Embracing Motherhood

I have been floating around in a state of bliss the past few days. I love the mornings when I can just stare at my sleeping son in the early light. He is so perfect. When he stirs awake and I place him to nurse, he settles his hand up against his ear and looks up at me with wide eyes.

I feel like I'm starting to settle into my role as a mother, even during times that can be trying. I'm more comfortable and confident and just absolutely in love.

I visited Violet, Shane, and their beautiful little man, Declan at the hospital again today. Shane is just glowing with love and excitement about becoming a father. I took a photo of him and little Declan, who appears to have a teeny little smile on his own face.

And of course to appease certain aunties and grandmothers, more photos of the little wolf below:

Ahhh...motherhood is a privilege--don't let anyone else tell you otherwise! Little Declan is adorable :)
