Mother’s Day…

Today is Mother’s Day. I was thinking about what to write for a blog post and I came across a few pictures that really made me feel proud to be a mom. Shout out to Craig who is usually the photographer of these photos. They really make me happy to look back on them.

I like candid shots. I don’t like posed and perfect. I like pictures that catch a giggle or messy hair.

Craig has caught some pretty good ones of me and the boys. I especially love the one where the boys are laying on top of me, I hadn’t seen that one before until Craig was flipping through his phone and I saw it.

I try to get a few good ones of Craig and the boys too. The middle picture was stop mid-biking adventure. I can’t wait to get out on the bike again this Summer! We are entering our very first days above 70 this week so hopefully we can hit the trails soon! I love seeing how much the boys love bike riding.

and my ALL TIME FAVORITE picture of the boys:

Anywho, wishing all the mothers of all kinds out there a Happy Mother’s Day! I’ll be sleeping all day, of course it’s my weekend to work (double whammy this year – I’ve missed Easter AND Mother’s Day!)

I get to have my 20 week ultrasound next week! I still don’t have a bump to show off yet, I’m sure it will come with time! Any guesses on if it is a boy or girl? We will be finding out if baby cooperates!

    Happy Mother’s Day to you and all the Kramer family Moms! Love the fun pics that offer so much more LIFE than a pose.

    I’ll need to see pics before I call out gender. I have the “mother Edwards” theory that is highly accurate.

      Pictures of me or pictures of ultrasound? I tried to google “mother edwards theory” and it brought up a serial killer – HA!

    How fun would it be if you were to recreate the squished nose picture with the boys and your new baby when it arrives! You are a good mom:)
