last day of maternity leave

Today has me feeling all the feels. I am soaking them both in today. It’s the last time I will ever be able to spend this amount of time with them and while it’s been an exhausting four months with Emma, it has been the BEST four months with Madison. Being with her everyday has…

I wanted to write to you to apologize mainly. It isn’t that you’re an after thought, because you most certainly are not, it’s just that this time is different. I simply don’t have the luxury this time around to dote over every milestone. I can’t just lay around for hours on end resting and admiring…
