Your first born has a special place in your heart. All your children do and for their own reasons but your first child is dearly special. Madeline is my first. I have been so blessed by her. She has shown me so much grace. She is kind and forgiving. She has taught me so much on motherhood, about faith and forgiveness. And she’s 6. I’m blown away by the wisdom she has. I’m soaking in these last few moments of her childhood, because I know how fleeting it is. She’s interested in music, fashion and God’s word. She is mesmerizing.
I am so thankful that I have this series of images. That big gap toothed grin has filled my heart with so much joy. These could be some of the last photos of that beautiful smile. Those top teeth are wiggly and that’s a smile that I want to remember for the rest of my life.
