The day right before this photo was taken, he said “those words”. He has been my best communicator from a young age. I’ve never had a child that could communicate like this boy.

Motherhood ( Breathe )

I love the motherly closeness depicted in this piece of art that I bought from my friend over at rugged infinity (posted with permission). I think she did a really great job showing exactly how a momma feels as she draws a young one close. Even as they grow large and don't exactly fit under… Continue reading Motherhood ( Breathe )
