Sunday Feels

I love this one! We held his hand the whole time in the NICU and now our beds are right next door and we looked over and his hand was outstretched towards us.

Luke has been home now just over one week. I have developed a constant rock and find myself swaying back and forth even when not holding him. The late night feedings and the earliest mornings of my life haven't been the overwhelming struggle I imagined, but have been small sacred moments with my boy full of purpose.

Becoming a mom has showed me my own personal strength and power (beyond my own). Also, the capacity we have as humans to love and bigger glimpse of the love our Heavenly Father has for us. 

Every day since having Luke, I have felt immense gratitude to the women, leaders, sisters, aunts and friends of mine who have taught me what it means to be a mom. I have such a stronger love for my own mom and gratitude even though we are so far away.  I cant wait to see her in June and give her the biggest hug! <3

We love our little Luke and so grateful for my little buddy to explore this crazy city of Tokyo together and life.

  1. I love these thoughts and words and feelings. <3 Gives me good goose bumps! So sweet about his hand! I'm so glad he's home and for the sacred moments you have together. Take lots of pictures! And send them to me. :) I want to come visit.
