What PRECIOUS photography for baby’s 1st birthday! Love, love. <3
Isn’t this picture stunning?!
Just moments after giving birth, this loving new mom cradles her new little life.
I remember my special moment of becoming mom like it was yesterday. For me, the birth of my twins was a scary moment. An utterly, overwhelming, and heart stopping moment of fear. Why? My boys were born 10 weeks early. With the uncertainty of their prematurity, I wasn’t really able to enjoy the first moments of their life. But I will say…the love of motherhood was instantaneous for me.
Love at first sight is real. Especially when your eyes meet the eyes of your child for the very first time.
When my third son was born four years later, my experience was much different. I was able to hold him right after birth, caress his plump pink cheek right away, and nurse him just minutes after he was laid in my arms for the very first time.
But as I relish those first moments with my children, I can say without a doubt…
Love at first sight is real. No matter how early, how late, how easy your birth is, or how hard it was…when your eyes meet the eyes of your child for the very first time the feeling is the same. Amazing and unexplainable…in the most magical way.

Healthy Breastfeeding Diet
If you are a nursing mom, did you notice that your little one reacted to a certain food(s) that you ate? Perhaps suffering from a tummy ache, diarrhea or a sense of uneasiness after eating?
If so, what food was the culprit and how did you manage to cut it out of your diet? Share your thoughts with us, Mom!
The art of mothering…motherhood is an art, did you know that?
When a woman becomes a mother for the very first time, it’s like an artist sitting in front of a blank canvas picturing something beautiful to paint.
When your child is placed in your arms for the very first time, he or she is a blank canvas waiting for you to paint with love, understanding, protection and trust. As your child grows, so do you. As you “paint” your child’s world, they are also painting yours.
There is nothing more beautiful than the colorful portrait of a child gracefully reflected in the eyes of their mother.
“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
–Howard Johnson (c. 1915)
