About two months ago, Cavebaby discovered smells. Ever since he has wanted to smell almost everything. These firecracker flowers were in bloom about mid-May, just to let you know how long it took me to download, then upload these!
His favorite game for most of his young life has been Peek-a-boo or “Boo!”. I captured him the other day mid-boo!
Becoming a Mother has been a wonderful, scary, fun, exciting, & terrifying journey for me. I’ve never been able to completely write it down here in this space, although I’ve thought long and hard about it and have even attempted it a few times, but I can’t seem to say all that I want to on the subject. Amanda of SouleMama had her 5th child a month ago and while Mom, baby and family settled into their new lives as a family of 7 she asked a few other Momma bloggers to guest post for her on the subject of Soulful Mothering. I encourage each of you to go check out these wonderful posts, they are beautiful and if you are a mother you will completely relate, if you are not you will get a rare glimpse into the world of a Mother.
I know I’ve always wanted to be a Mother, to experience motherhood and to be called “Momma”, but becoming a Mother is so much more than all those things. It’s hard and grueling, filled with sacrifices and yet filled with blessings – its rewarding, challenging and fulfilling all at the same time. Definitely go read the posts they say it so much better than I ever could.
Hope everyone is having a great summer so far, we’re definitely trying to get out and enjoy every moment. Stay Cool!!
