When I first saw these Victoria Beckham for Target dresses previewed for release, I knew these were the ones I HAD to have. I love black and white and it’s very rare I find things that are identical for P and me. Most of the time I find things that coordinate which is totally fine, because most of the time I prefer that. But these were one of the few mommy and me matching pieces I saw and said yup, need those.
Photo shoots are so much more than photo shoots… they’re adventures. During this photo shoot, Miss P and I had the chance to spend time alone together, find Ladybugs (pictured above), enjoy a Starbucks treat and head to brunch afterwards.
When I found out I was pregnant, I thought it would be more natural to have a girl first. But then I had my baby boy and everything was just perfect. It was super natural. But when we got pregnant the second time, I wanted a girl and from God’s graces, we were given the perfect little princess.
There are so many things I love about having a daughter.
The clothes. Duh. Give me all the frilly dresses, tutus, and hair bows (when she will let me put them in).
She loves all things girly; hair, make-up, ballet.
But she also loves to get dirty. She loves to fish, play sports, and jump in puddles.
How nurturing she is. She has the kindest soul.
How strong she is. She won’t put up with her brother’s crap, that’s for sure.
She’s a snuggle bug. Yes, we still co-sleep…
She’s a complete mama’s girl.
Her smile can light up a room.
She loves me for me. Even when I’m stressed, overwhelmed, or having a bad day.
Being a mom is crazy. And my son, he’s my first baby and we have a special bond as well. I’m blessed to have the best of both worlds!
But the bond I have with my daughter won’t ever be like the bond I have with my son. And vice versa. And the dynamics between us just make it that much more exciting 🙂 I’m often asked how I’m able to split my attention and find the room in my heart for two. Mostly, I get asked this when moms are about to add another child to the family. And my answer is, it just happens. You can’t explain the love you have for your kids… you do just <3
