Being a mother is awesome! I've been a mother for 19 years now to a young adult (Tonito), a teenager (Alexis) and a grade schooler (Enzo). It hasn't been smooth sailing all the way, but there have definitely been more highs than lows. It is a job I take seriously and I am ever so grateful to have been blessed with these three wonderful children.
So, whenever a relative or a friend is graced with the same opportunity, I get so happy, giddy & excited for them because they will get to experience motherhood. Of course, it also gives me a reason to put my creativity to work!
Here are photos of the diaper cakes I made for the baby shower of Jek (my best friend/cousin-in-law/sorority sister/travel agent) and Zoe (my sorority sister). They are simple to make, but provide great joy to the mom-to-be.
"To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens."
