A Mother's Favorite Images... and letter to an expectant mom

Kim, writer of Zook Book Nook, is about to have a baby. As a baby-welcoming and mommy-pleasuring gift, several bloggers are contributing guest posts and link ups centered around newborns and the senses for her. Today's focus is sight and is 'directed' by Northwest Mommy Stasha, combined with her Monday Listicles link-up. Many of you have seen some of these photos before, but I doubt Kim has

Dear Kim,

I am so excited for you as you await your third child. There is real magic in the number 3, and I hope you live it, feel it, love it :) 

What follows are ten of my favorite photos taken by my husband...because I can't say I only have ten favorites...

The day my third child was born...

...and how he was welcomed by his siblings.

Watching them explore...

...holding them close.

Their sense of awe...

...and of adventure.

From the thrill of cupcakes...

...to the delight of a boat ride...

...and the rapture of a sunset.

These amazing beings, our 'charges', our children...
are destined to venture forth on their own...

...out into the world...

...or lost in the world of imagination. 

We love them always, no matter what.

Wishing you the very best with your new one :)
