As part of the blog blast featuring Microsoft’s Portrait of Mom I reviewed some of my favorite pictures over the years to determine which ones really impacted my journey through motherhood. This picture was taken when EBoy was just 4 months old. My brother and his wife had a lovely destination wedding in Hawaii which we were fortunate to get to attend.
My time as a mother had been wonderful for the most part (he was a very calm baby as long as I was within his vision, leaving him at any time for any reason was met with many tears and wails) and we’d even had a great 5 hour plane ride to get to Hawaii. I always loved on my sweet boy and spent much time talking, singing, and cooing to him. He had huge belly laughs and giggles anytime I kissed his cheeks but this picture captures the first time ever that he kissed me right back. It was a wonderful surprise to find out love can be communicated before words are even formed. As a mother there is no greater gift than the love of your own child and I will never forget this special moment, truly a memory forever etched in my heart.
