I wanted to share a few photos from my phone since that's where most of my photos are these days.

My mom actually sent me the one above while I was working one day. This is his favorite new face to make.

This one is taken in the dark so you have to look hard but when I rock him he likes to have his little hand on my face. It's the sweetest thing, I hope he still does that when he's 20. You know, when I rock him to sleep. :)


This is the usual face I get when I get home from work. I long for this moment ALL DAY LONG.

I will say that I had zero post-pardum depression and never even really had a difficult time transitioning to being a Mama. It came very naturally to me. I loved it from day one and there wasn't really anything for me to get worked up over.


I will share with you, however, that transitioning back to work has been har…
