Ainsley's newborns and some momma thoughts!









I know, I posted a bunch. The thing is I'm kind of obsessed with my baby. I worry her cheeks will fall off from overload of kisses! Looking at these makes me a little sad too. I can't believe how much she grows every week, every day, every second! She's smiling now which I love! I read somewhere that when babies smile it's their way of telling you they love you. When she smiles I just remind myself how thankful I'm sure she is for her hundreds of diaper changes! 
I would be lying if I said I wasn't still having a hard time with the adjustment of motherhood/going-from-being-crazy-busy-and-every-moment-sheduled-to-attached-to-a-tiny-human-dependent-on-me-for-everything. 
{is there a limit on how many hyphens you can use in a blog post?}
But although it's been hard, I'm totally in love with it too. I'm really learning to live in the moment and be present. Even though motherhood is still really busy, it's a different kind of busy. It's not so rushed and chaotic (at least not right now) and I'm drinking in every split second. I'm soaking up her smell, admiring her teeny tiny fingers and toes, and squeezing her perfectly round belly tight.
{I'm also trying not to let myself think about how someday she will be using those perfect little lips to talk back to me!}
 Sometimes when I look at her I'm overwhelmed with the amount of love I have for her. 
I'm so blessed to be her mom.

p.s. mad props to Marci Dawn Photography for these amazing shots! :)

I am IN LOVE with her newborn pictures! She is a beauty! Also, I think I am going to be in denial that our sweet baby girls will ever talk back to us until the day they do it! I am not looking forward to that day!
