Happy Birthday Baby

 

An unknown future

filled with hopes and fears

will include lots of laughter, and some tears

You’re giving birth

to a life brand new

not only for her, but also for you

Beautiful daughter

such a precious treasure to me

I have no doubt a wonderful Mother you’ll be

24 years ago today I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, and now that baby is a grown woman getting ready to give birth to a baby girl of her own.  It will be any day now.  My heart is so full…

I wish I had more time to ponder, reflect, and share about all I’m feeling at the moment, but we’re off to celebrate the day!

🙂

 

I know this photo is quite different from those I usually share and I hesitated whether or not to share it, but I love how it turned out, and my daughter does too – she’s actually been waiting for me to share it.   So I thought on her birthday as she’s so close to giving birth herself would be the perfect time.

Happy birthday baby!  I love you!

    • Thanks so much Jacqueline, I’m really looking forward to becoming a grandmother. 🙂 I have to admit though… I’m going to miss my daughter’s tummy – it’s been such a special and meaningful time spent with her while she’s pregnant. ❤

    • I have anticipation bumps – if there is such a thing?! 😉 While I’m not in any hurry for her to give birth, the nearness is palpable – I’m pretty sure she lost her mucus plug while we were out celebrating her birthday yesterday, so she could go into labor any time now…
      Thanks so much Dorinda! ❤
      Will definitely be sharing the news when it finally happens 🙂

    • Thanks so much Brad, I know it’s quite different from the nature photos I usually share, but hey… this is nature too right?! 😉 I have been obsessed with my daughter’s growing tummy, it’s been so amazing to watch and I’m going to miss it, but we’re all looking forward to meeting our new little family member! ❤

  16. Jewels, everything about this post was beautiful. A lovely word for the joyful memory of giving birth to your daughter so long ago now, and a lovely tribute to your own love over these years. Here was my attempt at that for the birth of my first daughter: https://moreenigma.wordpress.com/2015/01/12/what-joy-χαρα-means-to-me/

  17. Jewels, this picture made me cry. It is SO beautiful and how anyone could think otherwise is beyond me. Being a Mom and having a very large belly heavy with babe is so precious, and I think gorgeously sexy in a very uniquely feminine way. I can tell this baby is already so Loved. Your emotions at this time of your Life I cannot even begin to imagine. Wow, celebrating your daughter’s birthday as she is ready to give birth. How much better does Life get then this?? Tell your daughter I am so darn proud as a woman that she has the courage to show herself like this in such a heart touching and beautiful way. I am in awe of her!!! ❤

    • Thanks so much Amy, and I totally agree – I think the female form being with child is breathtakingly beautiful!
      Omygosh my emotions have been all over the place, and so have my daughter’s, and now as the time is drawing nearer for the little babe to be born they’re heightened even more.
      I’ll be sure to tell my daughter what you said, I know it will be a great encouragement to her.
      I’m in awe of her too, and watching the transformation her body has gone through has been absolutely amazing! ❤

What a celebration this already is!! IMO, the Apple never falls too far from the tree, so if you see your daughter as amazing, you are seeing you!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤
