Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day. It’s different this year. This year, I am flooded with thoughts and emotions (oh, emotions) of being a mother myself. Looking at this picture of my mom holding me in the hospital, I find myself wanting to wish away the days between now and October so that I, too, can know how it feels to hold your first baby for the first time.


I am so thankful for this little one inside of me, whose tiny hand melts my heart every time I see it…

…and for my own mama who has held me thousands of times since that very first time nearly 27 years ago.


Happy {day after} Mother’s Day! :)


  1. Happy mother's day! This one definitely counts!

  2. Aw, happy {belated} mother's day! This was so very sweet, Erin! :)

  3. I'm so excited for you!! I bet you can't wait until October. But enjoy the process - these times of anticipating are so wonderful too. Plus you still get to sleep.

  4. Wow! I ♥ your baby picture with your mom -- she looked so much like you do now...
    I'm looking forward to finding out if you're having a puppy or a kitty. Er, I mean, the gender of your lil' peanut.
    Happy Mother's Day -- they only get BETTER from now on! :D

    1. haha one of my 7th graders ACTUALLY asked if it could be a puppy. He was 100% serious—not trying to be stupid or funny, as 7th grade boys are prone to do. He said he saw it on TV. :P I can’t wait to find out, either! :)

    This was the sweetest post, Erin! Happy Mother's Day to you - you already are a mother, you know. That ultrasound photo is so precious with your baby waving at you. Even though she's cozy and warm in there, I know she can't wait to meet you, dad, grandma and the rest of the family in October.

  6. One more heart just melted...

  7. I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day momma-to-be! October will be here in no time!!

  8. I'm catching up on my favorite blogs and am just now hearing of your exciting news. Congratulations!
