Who Would Have Guessed...

I've always known that I wanted to be a mom. Even though I've been unclear on an actual career path, I knew that I wanted someone to call me Momma.

Now that I actually am "Momma", I realize that I enjoy it even more than I had ever imagined. I really do get giddy when I see blankets, bows, little polos, toys, and even diapers. All of those things make me so happy because I know that they are in my life because of my two amazing kids. (Just in case you were wondering-Isabella is the one in the pink and Evan is the one in the white blanket with a white hat-both a day after they were born.)


Who would have guessed that I actually LIKE having a cluttered house that looks like Toys R Us threw up all over the place. I remember just a few short years ago that I used to get excited when I went shopping for new clothes for me. NOW I would much rather be shopping for baby/toddler clothes and toys. I'm not sure exactly when that transformation took place, but it was probably from the second that I saw two pink lines on that first pregnancy test.

I guess I'm feeling even more sentimental than normal today. My babies are growing up too fast and there is nothing that I can do to slow it down, so I guess I'll just cherish each day and shower them with as much love as possible. You can calling it "spoiling my kids" if you want, but you can catch me holding them every chance I get. (This was from my Savannah Jack's "photo shoot" the other day-Ignore Evan in my brother's old jacket that he refused to take off)

Isn't just amazing to be a mom. I love every moment and it breaks my heart how much and fast they grow. The photos of them look so sweet. She's so big already!

I feel the same way and only look forward to the day we can have another child. Some days it looks like the toy store threw up in our house and I wouldn't change it for the world! Kiss those babies all you want, no one ever complained about being love too much as a kid.

Girl, I know exactly what you mean. I love the toys {even when I step on one haha}, the giggles, wiping away tears, kissing owies...gosh, I love it all!

Such a sweet post, honey! Your children are absolutely gorgeous!

I thought that was so funny about the how it looks like toys r us "threw up" all over your house- I think it is funny because I was just telling my husband almost this SAME exact thing the other day as I was picking up Christmas "toy" presents that were all over the house...
But being a Mommy is the absolute BEST... even with all the toys! ;)

They do grow up too fast don't they? Sometimes I wish they could stay newborns forever. It is my favorite stage despite how difficult it is!

I can relate to Toys R Us throwing up all through the house. But I love being a mom.

They do grow up way too fast. Cherish every moment!

You are so right! I so wish I could slow down time. I even wish I could hit rewind sometimes. Especially now that I have a teenager. Evan and Isabella are just adorable. He looks great in black leather:)

at my house it looks more like toys r us exploded in it. i have more scares and bruises from tripping over toys and books than anything else. our yard looks like a day care with a swing set, little tykes slide, tractors, wagons.

I never actually thought I wanted to be a mom... and some days are definitely harder than others but I wouldn't change a thing! I love my Cubby to no end! Congrats Mama!

One of the best jobs ever. As a mom of a 9 year old, 4 and 2 year old; I agree they grow too fast. I enjoy them so much though. Your kids are so adorable too.

I love having toys everywhere, it's fun! Although I do teach the children to pick up after themselves, it's usually once a night lol and doesn't always happen!

Being a Mom is the best job I have ever had, and not to mention the most rewarding!

I am with you. I love having the toys all over where we can play with one and move over to another. I hold my babies and kiss them every chance I get.

Cascia said...

Being a mom is pretty amazing. My house looks like Toys R. Us threw up all over too. I love that analogy.

Krystyn said...
