sometimes the love, it overwhelms

Last week I was holding Gideon when I suddenly found myself brought to tears. Tears over how much I LOVE this child. I was completely overwhelmed with the intense amount of love I felt. So tiny in my arms. So close to my heart. It makes me teary eyed just thinking about it. I wanted to remember that moment forever and grabbed the camera. We walked over to the window in the office and I held out my arm and snapped a few shots. This one took my breath away. Not exactly what I'd call a great shot of me, but I love seeing the baby from the back. The sweet innocence he projects. The way his arms are holding on to me.

It's my Best Shot Monday pick this week.

I think that picture captures the love between mother and child perfectly.

I feel the same way about my kid. It's crazy how you can love someone so much for no reason at all, really.

Hi Pixie:

I totally get it. I really do. Having a kid makes the human heart explode. I feel that way about my adopted daughter too, which goes to show you it's not just biology! Love is love is love!!!!

I just now noticed that my little picture looks like an ugly black and white man's version of Leezer's little picture.
