a normal day

On October 18th, my daughter was born and I became the mother of three children. Hundreds of miles away, on the same day, another baby girl was born and another woman added the third child to her family. We were complete strangers at that time, but our love of photography and family brought us together. We started to have a conversation about motherhood with images, because we tell stories with our cameras. Since some tales are so similar, and some are not, we decided to collaborate and share a photo a week from a normal day as a mother to three.

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”         – Mary Jean Irion

it is difficult to pinpoint exactly what i love most about this time with little ones.  but if i had to pick one thing, i would say, “wonder”.  how can i not love the endless wonder?

snippets from “the sharing years” {everything is fine}

“i don’t have to share anything with you that is mine!!”

“yes you do!”

“no i don’t!!”

“fine i am not sharing a room with you!”

“fine i am not sharing my underwear with you!!”

“fine!”

“fine!”

the beginning

you should be sleeping. i know it is hard when the world is still so new, so colorful, so bright. you came into my life at a time that felt heavy and every second since you have arrived, i have buried my face in yours and breathed you in. your air is lighter than my own. i gave up on something i loved in order to prepare myself for something i love even greater. but now i am stronger, more hopeful. ready. today i return to my passion of telling our stories day by day. being able to add you to the cast of my favorite characters stirs my soul in the most extraordinary ways.
