  1. Emily my mom is the same way! With each of my kids…I ended up with a c-section and had to stay in the hospital for a week after and she ended up staying three weeks each time! Plus she lives a few hours away and doesn’t miss a sporting event. She’s amazing.

  2. Aren’t Moms amazing? Your Mom is gorgeous – such life and kindness in her face, Emily!
