At Home with Edward

It’s been a little over 3 weeks and I feel like I’m getting into somewhat of a new normal.

Mama got her groove back?! Perhaps.

I don’t want to jinx it, but lets just say the new groove is starting to emerge.

Even though our lives are hectic and busy than ever before, I always take the time in the *few* quiet moments late at night or early in the morning to say small, quick prayers of gratitude. I am so thankful for so many things, but especially this little boy. Thankful my body was able to get pregnant {which is not an easy thing to do}, grow a healthy baby to term and be able to care for this new little person! Bodies are amazing.

Motherhood is not for the weary or faint of heart. It’s hard and I’m exhausted and emotional 104% of the time. But holy hannah, I feel like my heart has grown 17 sizes bigger–>just making more room for all the love in my life.

This little guy is starting to be not so little anymore and it makes me sad, but I’m so glad I have these pictures to remember when he was an itty bitty lil’ nugget! Our photographer, Kate, did a phenomenal job capturing the love, joy and beauty that encompasses our new family of FIVE!

Enjoy! xoxo

    Those pictures are beautiful! I love the first one. Where Eddie’s hand is placed, it’s like he’s saying “Yep, that’s mine.” hehe Beautiful family.

    Lauren, the pics of your new addition, you and the family are absolutely beautiful!
    There is not a “mother” alive that could not relate to these images. May God bless
    You all.

    What a little blessing, Lauren! He is truly perfect in every way. And that quote at the bottom brought me to tears for some reason. I will be writing that one down. <3

    Beautiful! I’m glad things are going well for you. I said with my last baby that those first few weeks were all about discovering the “new normal.” Best wishes!
