Things that makes me excited to have a baby...
-the you are my wild project, a weekly portrait project where 14 photographers submit pictures of their children.
-This thought-provoking quote that I happened to read the day after I found out I was pregnant--on Mother's Day!: "The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail - when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her. The emotional labour pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred." - Joy Kusek
-being with my nieces and nephews. like here, here and here.
-reading the blog 71 Toes. I love her approach to parenting.
-the thought of matching saltwater sandals. I already have mine.
-beautiful mother child photography.
-when Aaron touches my belly and says he can't wait to meet our baby.
