Yay!! It’s blog circle time again, and this month the theme is “food.” I honestly think the themes with the most possibilities are the ones that are the trickiest for me, and at first I could NOT figure out what to do for the life of me! Then my sweet, dear friend and current nursing mama suggested something that made my heart so happy. What better food to focus on than baby’s first food??!!

Being able to produce the best food for our babies straight from our bodies is pretty amazing, when you stop and think about it. Add in the sweet nursing noises, the little hands reaching up to your face, the gazes of pure joy and awe right into your eyes, and the sleepy milk coma smiles when baby’s done eating, and you have some of the most tender moments a mom shares with her little one. Breastfeeding my babies is one of the things I miss most about my kiddos getting so big, and those moments with them will always be some of my most precious memories.

I am so so glad that my friend Robin volunteered herself and her sweet little baby to be my models for this month’s blog – moms feeding their babes are some of my most favorite pictures ever, and it just fit so perfectly for this month’s theme. There is no greater love than that of a mother for her child, and one of the very first and most basic ways we show them that love is to feed them.

Check out my gorgeous friend Robin and her perfect little Macie.

This makes me so happy for Robin that you got to capture these. Her and little Macie are equally stunning. It also makes me sad that I don’t have any like this of me and my little guy. Just a beautiful post Steph and shots that I know Robin will cherish forever.

Every time I think you have outdone yourself Stephanie you do it again. These are absolutely beautiful. What amazing moments you have captured for Robin. Beautiful work!

Steph, I will never get sick of your gorgeous work. You grow each month and it’s breathtaking. I feel so incredibly lucky to have these images to hold on to forever when my baby gets too big to nurse and remember this special bond we have. Thank you again for this special gift you’ve given my baby and I.
