I am a mother. Sometimes I still can't believe it. It's crazy how something that is the best thing ever is also the hardest thing ever, something that can bring you the most joy is also the most exhausting. The paradox of parenthood. Now we are on the journey of adding another little one, and I'm sure the chaos and the love and sleep deprivation will be abundant.
At the end of the day, when I am tired and ready for bed, I can't help but feel so grateful. Being a mother is beautiful, and I feel like these photos below capture the magic of motherhood for me at this moment.
Me: 16 weeks pregnant. Everett: 22 months.
