Motherhood: A Beautiful Experience

Motherhood is a beautiful experience. I just became a mother of a beautiful baby boy on April 5th, 2014. And men is he a hand full of love, curiosity, joy, blessing and a gift to our family *sheds a little happy tear*

Being a mother comes with it's joys and tears (NOT sorrow,o!)

One of the experiences of motherhood is our change in body...inside-out. I have been trying to exercise (sit-ups), eat healthy (this is really hard, I tell you! I LOVE fooooood!) and to think positive and stay healthy so I can go back to my former size 8 from a "pregnancy induced" size 14. Am a size 12 now after birth. But honestly, it's hard! *sighs*

Came across the "4th Trimester Bodies Project" when I noticed a video on Facebook concerning #StopCensoringMotherhood. The video caught my interest so I clicked the hash tag and found this website. It's beautiful to see photos of women embracing their beautiful stretches, stripes, scars and all that pregnancy creates.

Well, if you're new to this world, like me, welcome to motherhood and the beautiful, crazy, great experiences it brings *smiles* And for those who have been a mother like "forever" (lol!), well done and keep up the good work *wink*
