A Beautiful Moment: Mama and Baby

Today I went on a little walky-bear with my favorite baby. It was so beautiful in Palo Alto, and I love to take advantage of the fantastic weather by strolling along my favorite path called The Dish. It's about 4.5 miles of rolling hills, and I love it. Anyway, Easton, my darling baby boy got a little hungry halfway through- which is quite unusual as I try and time his eating perfectly around our walks...

We stopped to take a "milk break" under a shady tree. I settled him and I down and fed my little guy. As I fed him, I was overwhelmed by the beauty of "mama feeding baby" right in the middle of  nature. I'm usually not a super "naturey" kind of girl. I like the mall, the city...but today I was struck by how lovely and natural it really is to be a mother.

I felt totally confident feeding my baby under that tree. I didn't wish I looked more put together, or that my hair was a little less messy.  I wasn't daydreaming about how to lose the final pounds of baby weight- I didn't even want a camera to capture the moment. All I wanted was to soak up the memory I was making:  just mama and baby, taking a break under a shady tree to enjoy a little milk. It was one of the most beautiful moments of my life- and it was captured, right in my soul.
