We recently had family portraits taken and I LOVE how they turned out! So today I’m sharing some of them with you. For those of you who have been following my blog for awhile, you’ll know that originally I didn’t share pictures of my family. You only got to see my kids sometimes. My personal friends and family could see them on Facebook, but I didn’t share them publicly. So today I’ve been including pictures of my hubby and my three kids. I feel like those of you who read this blog are my friends. It felt weird not to share such a huge part of my life with you!
There are tons of other great pictures too but I won’t bore you with any more. I’m so glad we did these photos! The kids were at a great age and cooperated really well. Of course we have lots of shots with people looking the wrong way or having funny expressions. But that’s so to be expected with any group photos! For me, I really wanted these family pictures because my hubby spend so much time being behind the camera. It is wonderful to actually be in pictures with our family.
So today you get to officially “meet” my family!
There is no supermom,really–that whole supermom who has everything together is just a fallacy. There are real moms. Real , authentic moms who admit that they don’t have it all together but keep on fighting. Scared and tired moms who keep fighting. Moms who are overwhelmed by keeping up with little’s all day long. Moms like you and me who sometimes feel lost in a world of outward accomplishments. Before I had my first born (my daughter), when I thought about motherhood, I thought of breastfeeding, sleep deprivation, and diapers. While those things are obviously a huge part of mothering, they are merely physical aspects. What took me by surprise is the way I feel when I just sit and stare at her playing across the room, or when I tell her ” Good job, sweetheart’ when she accomplishes yet another task she tried so hard to conquer. Being a mother is like taking your heart out of your chest and watching it walk around.
Motherhood has its challenges, but it also has its joys. I was so blessed to get these three right here. I’m feeling like the luckiest girl in the world, I love this family of mine so much I could cry. My kids saved me in their own way and they keep me on track, everything I do, I do for them. They are what keeps me going, the reason I work so hard, the reason I wake up everyday. I would be lost without this family of mine.
I hope you enjoyed this look at my family! I know I’m excited to finally share them with you.
Aren’t they the cutest kids ever?! OK, I’m a little biased… but this is my absolute favorite picture ever taken of these three!
Well, maybe this one’s close second
