sometimes i feel like i’ve really got it together.

dinner on the stove . . . sleeping baby in her bassinet.  win.

sometimes [a lot of times . . .] i feel like i’m just making things up as i go along.

but i am learning more every day what this is like — how much love and instinct and uncertainty go into the concept we call motherhood. 

thank you to all the mothers out there, especially my own — i think i get it now.  ♥

    a very happy first Mother’s Day to you! 🙂

    Yes, we’re all flying by the seat of our pants with this mothering thing, but as long as we love our kids, give them the security they need (and some good food), they’re be fine.

    Yep! Happy Mother’s day!

    I love Annabel’s swaddle blanket in that second pic. So cute!

    Happy Mother’s Day!:) I’m still just making it up as I go along, every day. You can tell by your posts since Annabel’s arrival that you are so thrilled to be a mother, and that you’re already a great one!

    Annabel was the best gift a mother could get.

    Love, Grand-ma

    Happy first mother’s day! "making it up" = instinct.
