Adri Loves Being A Mom!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we can’t help to think of all the mothers and mother-figures that fill our lives. Adri is currently on maternity leave for baby boy who is due any day now! As she rests and waits for baby boy, she is spending this sweet time with Ellie boo for her last few days of being a mama of one. Since Adri is one of the most inspiring mamas we know, we asked her to share a little bit about why she loves being a mom.

Adri and Ellie

  1. My life changed after I had Ellie. Not from the unconditional love I had for her, but feeling that great love back from her is what changed me. I never felt so loved by anyone in the world.
  2. Being woken up in the morning not by an alarm clock but by someone calling out “Mommy! Mommy!” is the best way to wake up.
  3. Being somewhere in the house and hearing little feet running around, getting closer and closer to me only to find Ellie running in and looking for me with arms wide open.
  4. Seeing a new bond between my husband and Ellie. They adore each other and even though I pretend to be jealous, I am so proud of their bond and it makes me fall in love with him in a different way. He provides her a comfort and protection I can’t give her. Definitely daddy’s girl.
  5. Being a mom rocks because even though you never feel quite ready for what’s ahead and you don’t feel qualified, in the end you see that just being you is enough. I don’t have to be perfect and right all the time. I know I will always make mistakes as a mom, but I also know that as long as I love my kids with all of my heart – they will be okay. My love is enough for them and that is all they truly need from me.

And did you know? Adri is going to have a home birth right in her own bathroom! Power to her and her amazing will to have baby boy in the intimacy of her own home. It’s going to be so special – you got this Adri!
