What I know for sure.

What I know for sure is that being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done. I know for sure that I haven't gotten a full night's sleep in over nine months and I am tired. I know for sure that my life has been irrevocably changed.

And this change? Is for the good.

I know for sure that I am able to love bigger. I am able to hug tighter. I am able to smile wider. I know for sure that life couldn't get much better.

And once you see the little face behind these crazy beautiful life changes, you'll see why.

I know for sure that every time I think I couldn't possibly love this little baby any more, she goes and does something cute like this that makes my heart explode.

Linking up with Mama Kat!

Oh those faces are priceless!! Almost makes the sleepnessness worth it, huh? And I'm with you 100%--being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done too.

BEST BABY FACES EVER.

Hilarious (and beautifully shot!) photos. She will totally treasure those moments, and I'm sure you'll never forget them.

Stop it! She's so cute! Those pictures just made me die laughing (not good while students are testing!)!

I love the honesty in this :) While I am still way too selfish to be ready for kids, I love how they really change people...

She gets cuter every day :)

Mama Mary said...
