Artifact Motherhood | The Sting of the Last First

It's been a wonderful year watching him grow and learn.  He's becoming his own little person.  There is so much joy in having a baby.  But when it's the last one, there's a distinct sting to it too - for every one of his firsts is my last as a mama.

Happy First Birthday, Ezra!

This is Artifact Motherhood -- a project shared with other female artists who are documenting our journeys as mothers and creating memories for our children through our photographs and words.

Please visit the next wonderful artist LAUREN WEBSTER to read her post in our blog circle.
