Motherhood to the 5th Power

As Mother's Day nears it is always a sweet time of relection.  I never knew my heart could hold so much joy and love, and knowing in all the struggles that I had no idea what was in store, well it's simply beyond words for me.  While I am not often in pictures b/c I am usually the one taking them, I found these from some sweet moments between me and my boys. 

 Taken by me (the ol' hold the camera out hope you're in it and smile) my little
sidekick Ethan and I on his big first day of preschool (2008)

 Liam and I taken by Matt, our first trip to the pumpkin farm with the babies (2010)

holding sweet Beckham in the NICU, he had the most trouble early on and I just wanted to hold him, gaze into his gorgeous eyes and make it all better (2009)

Aiden's first day home after 3 weeks in the NICU, he is such a little lover and wanted to be home first :) (2009)

Griffin at his first birthday party, while he looks a little worried, I love that I have a picture from that day with him, my little sweet cheeks. (2010)

how I envisioned this moment, prayed for it endlessly...holding all four of my healthy baby boys...L-O-V-E!  (2009)
