Every time I sit and edit newborn photos, my heart beats a little faster. Maybe it's because I've determined (God willing), that I'm done. I've passed the newborn stage and the baby stage and really I'm pretty much through the toddler stage for the last time. I've nursed for the last time. I've carried a life inside me for the last time.
Maybe it's because when I look at this tiny little being with itty bitty toes and fingers and those sweet little lips and eyes, I see possibility. I see years of snuggles to come. Years of wiping away tears, hugs and I love yous.
But most of all, I see a mother's love. And there's nothing quite like it that I've found. And it just takes my breath away every time.
