A Very Special Mother’s Day

I write this post as my son sleeps soundly into the night.  He’s a good sleeper, and I know we’re incredibly blessed for that.

Admittedly, I swoon over him all day long.  Despite our best efforts to not spoil him too much, I’m the first to pick him up when he cries, I hold him and soothe him until he falls asleep, and I tell him every second of the day how much he’s loved and how his dad and I will do everything we can to keep him safe, happy and healthy.  We are so in love with this little boy.

I figure the disciplining and “hard parenting” can come later, maybe in a few months when he’s not so darn cute!  Right now, we are relishing this newborn sweetness and doing our best to take as much of this as we can in…

Maybe it’s the hormones or all of the pollen in the air, but this year for Mother’s Day – it’s a sweet and tearful one for me.  I’m reminded of the unconditional love a parent has for their child, the sacrifices we gladly make to ensure they’re taken care of, and the hopes and dreams we pass onto them.  It’s no longer just about Kyu and I.  It’s about this precious little 8 pound being who wraps his tiny little fingers so tightly around ours.  Who opens his eyes and stares at us as if we are their world.  And who we love so deeply, it hurts…

This Mother’s Day, I celebrate the love and joy of motherhood everywhere.  To all of the mothers who are able to experience this unspeakable bond and indescribable love – Happy Mother’s Day.

Thank you to my friends, Crystal James, Kim Busby, Danielle Bryson and Lisa Phillipson for capturing our little Lyon’s first days.  We are truly in love…
