After spending a delightful evening making baby clothes (photos to come) with a friend for a shower I’m attending tomorrow, I of course, went to bed thinking about mothers and new babies. In fact, it’s a very “mother and baby” oriented week: in addition to the shower I’m attending Saturday, I had a friend loose her mother this past week, and another family friend take home her new adopted son.
As I picked materials to construct the baby outfits I couldn’t help but feel like a fraud walking around in a baby department. Surrounded by tired looking mothers and babies, I wondered, not for the first time, how women manage it–the excitement of months upon months of knowing your life will change, forever–soon. How does anybody ever feel ready to make a decision like THAT? Guess I’ll know when I’m ready, if I ever am!
These are some of the most beautiful “mother” photos I’ve seen, boosted from Domestic Reflections.
