I don’t have much to write today. I look at these pictures of the sweet little girl who made me a mother and realize just how much she has grown up. It leaves me speechless sometimes. So filled with emotion, I don’t even know how to get out the words I want to say. I am so honored to be her Mom. She teaches me, stretches me and breathes life into me. I welcome 2014. As much as I want to press the stop button and savor these moments with her. I know that each new year will bring a new journey. A new road to travel together. It will be bumpy and hilly at times but we will hold hands together and see what great adventure awaits us.
Hi, I'm Jen!
Welcome to my personal lifestyle blog. It features topics such as motherhood, family life, fashion, cooking, and all sorts of adventures. I hope you enjoy what you find!
Awww, brings back memories of my own time as a little ballerina girl. I can almost smell the scent of the studio we danced in. Too cute!
I wish you a wonderful year, together!
She’s beautiful, Jen!
So sweet! My heart just melted for your little one!
I love the all their hair up! Soooo cute, fingers crossed i’ll have a girl one day so i can dress her up in a tutu. For now i’m bracing myself for lots of sports with a very active little boy. xo
These photos just melt my heart Jen!! Hope you guys enjoyed an amazing New Year and I wish you all the happiness for 2014!
I love your perspective. We are having our first babe (girl) in February and I’m so excited. People have used this time to give me all sorts of opinions on the struggles of parenthood and how draining kids can be. Each time I hear something like that I think, you know, challenges are a given. However, life is an incredible thing and the fact that God is giving me the opportunity to become a mom to a sweet baby girl – that He’s trusting me with such a fragile thing – words cannot express my gratitude. I look forward to every single moment with her. The excitement, the stress…i’ll take it all! Your photos make me even more excited. I can’t wait to see what she takes interest in :). You have one beautiful ballerina on your hands! Happy New Year to you and your sweet fam!
Hi Jen, these pictures are adorable!! But I feel I need to ask – did the parents of the other children say it was okay to post these photos of their children on the internet? I only ask because some parents do that in my daughter’s dance class and I personally don’t want any pictures of my child on the internet (she gets to decide what goes online when she is old enough to make that decision for herself). It is a constant battle with the other parents but there are just too many perverts out there and they don’t need to be looking at pictures of my baby girl. I am sure you checked with the other parents but in the off chance that you did not, I would really encourage you to blur out their faces. Hope this doesn’t come across as rude or judgmental, I just think it’s something we need to think about and okay with the other parents first. Just some food for thought. Happy New Year!!
