picture post.

happy friday. for those of you who entered the bummis giveaway be sure to check out the post below for the winner!! thanks again to all of you who entered and promoted the giveaway!!


we're leaving today for my parent's camper up north. so i wanted to let you all know that i most likely will not be back til monday.

and i wanted to tell all you mommies out there...happy mother's day. and i think being a mommy doesn't mean havng a physical child here on earth. being a mommy stands for all those babies that are waiting for us in heaven. and for all those babies in our dreams. being a mommy is so much more than giving birth. being a mommy means loving those babies unconditionally and forever. being a mommy beings just that...being a mommy. kissing boo-boos. rocking and cuddling and reading. laughing. crying. and staring. staring is my favorite. i don't think my kids will ever get too big for me to just stare at them while they sleep. every night before i go to bed i stand in the girls' room and just stare at them. and as i crawl into the fuzzy blankets of my own bed i stare at dustin in the bassinet next to me. i am blessed. no doubt.

i'll leave you now with pictures of the precious babies i've been so blessed with.
