“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Zoe: she is so excited about life…
Ezra: he can’t NOT smile at me…
Zion: playing with ottie…
Axel: makes the best faces…
Ottilie: adorable at the piano…

these five. and their dad. they are my joys. they treat me so well every day and then yesterday (mother’s day) was just the icing on the cake. i love them with a love i didn’t know existed before i became a mom, and every day i am so very grateful that i can be home with them loving and teaching them in all the ways of life. before we had kids people would ask what i wanted to do and my answer was always be a mom. there was never another thing that seemed better to me in my mind, and now that i am one, i still think the same.  my mom is an amazing mother, and was always home with us kids. she had her own business at home so that she could be with my brother and i. and i know it was a sacrifice for them in some ways, but one that i am thankful they made. because it caused me to want nothing more than to be a mom myself. i never want a day to go by that i don’t recognize motherhood as a true gift.
