I was about 6 months pregnant with my daughter this day last year. My husband was sweet and made me breakfast and give me something from the baby to celebrate my first Mothers Day.
But the truth is, it was fun, but felt kinda fake.
I was technically a mother, yes, but I wasn’t doing much mothering other than serving as a human incubator at that point.
(PS: I loved being a human incubator.)
This Mothers Day is different though. I have a beautiful 9 month old daughter.
I have become a Mommy.
It just feels different.
And so much better.
This is the first Mothers Day for all the moms of the babies I have photographed this year, including this one. She welcomed her son just a week ago.
