…the most surreal part of being a mother is the unwaivering connection you have to your children. I’m sitting here thinking back on all my experiences before they were around, and while I am fully aware that they have not been with me for a large part of my life, i can’t help but feel their presence in those memories…like they were there all along I just couldn’t see them. They are so intertwined with the deepest part of my being…it’s undescribable.
They are growing up so fast these days. Lukas doesn’t fit in my lap very well anymore…Stella just got her ears pierced…geez. I couldn’t go on and on. It’s certainly bittersweet. On one hand, I am so very thankful that I get to watch them grow and that they are growing in healthy bodies. On the other hand, I want to slow down time and just stare at them as they are for a few years.
I guess that is the beauty of photography. It stops time for me. Freezes a moment that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.
I know I have more pictures of them from this past year, but currently I can only find these….and I don’t know….I just felt like sharing some pictures of the precious beings that have been with me since the beginning of time.
the best time we had all year was the sweltering hot day we decided to cool off in the creek…clothes and all…
