never alone.



baby is down for a nap. i am sitting here at my computer, editing some photos and what do i hear? nothing. quiet. an overwhelming sense of loneliness comes over me- for just a second.

and i realize that even through the silence, i am never alone. my baby is just in the other room, sleeping soundly and totally quiet. but he's there.

do i like a little alone time? absolutely.

BUT

i love having my little companion with me all day. i love knowing that i'm never alone.
if i'm having a bad day, or feeling discouraged i have my best friend here with me to make me feel better. and appreciate everything i have.

you know those sweet little moments, where your baby just looks you straight in the eyes for a moment- and a HUGE smile comes over their face? like -- they just knew that is just what you needed, right then.

and

even when he's sleeping he makes me feel better, just one little peek at him and all is well.

*sigh*

This made me cry... I'm sitting at work, talking to a guy and I start to cry... OH BOY! Now I have to explain to this unmarried, no kids man who thinks i'm a baby.. haha

I LOVE THIS POST (and I love his face in the picture). I always go in to take a peek at her when she's sleeping!!! LOVE IT! And quiet time= editing time ;0)

this is so true for mother's. if wyatt is napping for too long, i honestly contemplate waking him up. but i usually just creep over the side of his crib and stare at him until he wakes up. your baby is model material!

I love never being alone too!!! As hectic as life sometimes seems, I like to soak in the quiet moments with Austin. Especially when we first wake up in the morning and he's smiling and laughing and ready to play. Those are the best!

I feel the same way with Aidyn! When he is gone I feel this deep sense of longing and loneliness. I can't wait until he's back~!

I am in love, in LOVE with this shot. It is heavenly! I can't remember if I already told you...but I added you to my feed and I'm SO enjoying your posts! I might not comment on every one, only because of time, (3 crazy kids and all), but know that I am reading and LOVING them all! If I were you, I'd be doing nothing but taking pictures of your sweet little guy all day. He is ADORABLE! (And it's obvious how crazy you are about him too - so sweet)! ♥
