So ready to start the weekend with this little party animal! #oliverford

I always knew I would love motherhood, but I wasn't fully prepared for how much. For the heaviness of this kind of love. Knowing that you created the little heart beating in this 3 foot tall human, and knowing that you've been tasked with teaching it love, compassion, humility, and kindness. His heart is wide open, his snaggle-tooth smile gives way to full belly laughs, and his hand is always quietly searching for mine. I am thankful everyday that I get to go through life with this little person by my side. #oliverford #thisistwo

Best $3 Target purchase ever. #oliverford

My love and appreciation for my mother has tripled since becoming one myself. And the way my son lights up when he sees her fills my heart with joy. #oliverford

Well hey there little buddy.

"I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren't trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom." - Umberto Eco, Foucault's Pendulum #oliverford

I have not seen my son in 11 days. An eternity that is heartbreaking. I miss him like I would miss a limb. Nothing could have kept me from him, short of the gravity of the family emergency we just experienced. As I count down the minutes until I can hold the weight of him, and breathe in his bright blond curls, I am so incredibly thankful to be going home with the weight lifted of a tragedy avoided. While away, a life fully lived was taken, and another life unfinished was spared, and the universe continues on, in a beautiful and mysterious balance. And now I am beyond thankful to be going home to the little man that calls me Mama.

Happy birthday to the man that's given me the world. Ollie is so blessed to have a father that teaches him how to burp on command, how to build a fort, how to dance with the rhythm in your soul, and how to laugh until it brings tears to your eyes. I'm thankful to have a co-parent that has never once shied away from a dirty diaper, that brings out a little more of our little man's weird everyday, that is always the best person to call in a crisis, and that loves our child more than anything in the world. I'm lucky to call this crazy little tribe my family. #oliverford

Lil' heartbreaker. #oliverford
