It's Mother's Day and honestly I am still in shock sometimes that I'm even a mom. I'm in disbelief that Ellie has been in our lives for close to three months already! Time has flown by and I am in awe in the things that she does every day! 😍

In the short few months she has been here, Ellie has taught me so many things about life without even realizing it! They say everything changes after having a child and it couldn't be any more true! There are things that you just don't understand until you become a parent and while I am no expert, I can honestly say my perspective on life has completely changed from before the day Ellie was born.

Life has such a new meaning. The priorities I once had, are no more and everyday that I get to wake up and spend time with my family and friends is such a blessing! Blessings that not everyone is lucky enough to experience in a lifetime. Becoming a mom has taught me that these moments and experiences are what really matter. Witnessing Ellie grow everyday just sheds new meaning to just that. I love being her mom and watching her discover her own self over these past few months. And while today, I may not feel any more special than I did yesterday or how I'll feel tomorrow, I am lucky because I get to be Ellie's mom.

As a Mother's Day surprise, me and my sister decided to have pictures done of us and our little babes for our mom. We actually gave them to her two weeks ago for her birthday because we were so excited about them. Also, because we are pretty terrible at keeping secrets. It was so windy and sand was blowing everywhere. Ellie was pretty much on the verge of a meltdown the entire time and I was scared shitless that we weren't going to get any good shots because of it. But honestly, our photographer captured exactly what we wanted. And that was us, just us plain and simple and enjoying being with each other - she is so freaking amazing by the way! 

I am in love with these photos and am so happy to see that even though the conditions weren't ideal and I felt panicky the entire time, these pictures are everything! I'm so glad we could give something so sentimental to our mom and also capture time standing still for my sister and I with our babies. So I hope that as time continues to march forward we will be able to look back at these photos and remember the memories we created since then and even before. And know just how lucky we are to call this chaotic life ours and how great it is to be mothers to our children. 

Today was simple and perfect and just what I needed. I want to wish every mom out there a very Happy Mother's Day! Keep doing what you're doing, because even on the days you feel like your failing miserably, you aren't. You're doing your best and thats what being a mom is all about. 💝
