happy happy mother's day

It's normally a first for Lilah, but this time it's a first for me. My first Mother's Day, and everything I've dreamed of for the last few years is finally in my arms. There is nothing like it, nothing like the feeling of being a Mother, it's so much joy and love that you feel your heart could burst. It's truly amazing. One thing I want to mention, something I have learned in the past four months of being a mother, and that's how much I appreciate my Mum. So this post is not just for me; it's for my Mum, Colin's Mum and Lilah's birth Mum. Thank you all so much for the gift you gave us, the gift of life and the gift of love. To mark the occasion, Colin took these pictures of us, this afternoon, after Church.

    Just wanted to mention how the connection is so obvious and how you and Lilah just seem so in sync in your laughter. They say our little ones mimick us and pick up so much of what we do. This is evident as Lilah looks to have the same smile as you, comparing the photos and expressions is amazing. Really obvious in the 12th photo, makes me smile just looking at her smile :) Pretty neat stuff.
