Can't get enough of this beautiful Mom and baby. I think that each time I'm around Lauren, I am more and more impressed by her gentle spirit, and the raw love she has for her kids. This was a week after she had Des, and even though I know she was sleep deprived, and adjusting to having two beautiful boys, she was still so gentle, patient and kind.
I just think that Moms have such a BIG job! Being responsible for a little person, teaching them what they need to know, loving them through late nights, being proud of them for the small things, and preparing them for a sometimes-not-so-friendly world out there. It's such a fine tuned dance, knowing when to hold them and when to let them cry, when to hang on and when to let go, when to push and when to let them find the way on their own. And they do this everyday. Everyday. For the rest of ever.
So, here's to you Moms. I think you're great people.
