Mothers. What would we do without them? The mother child bond is a remarkable and powerful one. A warm hug from your mother feels just as comfortable at 40 (well, 39 to be exact) as it does at 4 weeks. We depend on our mothers for unconditional love, comfort, and security. Their encouragement helps us through our challenges that alone, we never thought we could manage. It’s the hardest job in the world, yet undeniably the most rewarding.
In honor of Mother’s Day, I want to share some pictures I took a couple of months ago of Angie and her new, adorable baby Connor. Oh, there is just nothing like a new baby… that fuzzy, wrinkly skin, those fingers and toes so itty bitty you look at your own, amazed that you, too, were little like that once. Angie is an amazingly, relaxed and confident new mom. Angie and Connor are perfect examples of that magical mother-child bond. He cries, she sings, he stops. He fusses, she holds him, he’s calm. He can tell that touch is hers.
It’s Mother’s Day so my blog entry is dedicated to motherhood but I cannot forget Chris, a wonderfully dedicated father and husband. He jumped right in to change Connor’s diapers, snuggle him and give Eskimo kisses.
This couple truly works together in their parenting.
