Being Mommy

This picture is worth more than anything, to me. It's been one of my favorite photos for the past ten months, and it encompasses my feelings for my precious son! It was taken the day we came home from the hospital, and I was MORE than exhausted. Apparently, Matthew was a little tired, too. This is motherhood to me. No matter how hectic life can be- there's always time to rest and be STILL with the ones we love- especially our children.


5 Minutes for mom is hosting a mommy's day photo contest! They are giving away ONE THOUSAND dollars, for the winning photo! Can you believe it? Me neither! They have a lot of photos to look through, and I don't envy them one bit! Make sure to share your photos too, or cheer on one of your bloggin' mamas!



Happy Mother's Day, my friends!
