This time a year ago I was almost 40 weeks pregnant with M. Looking back I can’t even put into words what an incredibly beautiful year it has been, my first year as a Mother. Because not only a baby was born that day in May, also a Mama, a Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. An Aunt.
Today is my first mothers day, and there is not much more I can wish for on this day, than to be surrounded by the love that all these strong, yet gentle women give me everyday.
Looking at these photos my sister took a year ago when baby M was not even 24 hours old (and my sister was 38 weeks pregnant herself), it makes me feel like a part of us arrived, that we never knew was missing. To complete us. To make us a family. To challenge us, and to make us happier we ever thought we could be. This little piece of us.
