Motherhood and Maternity, at 40 somethin'

Motherhood and Maternity
40 somethin'

So far, you've seen me post about pregnancy in her 20's, expecting the first child and pregnancy in her 30's, expecting her 5th child.

Now, is time for pregnancy in her 40's.

Expecting lucky number 9, her last child.

The mother at 40 somethin' is graceful and sure.
She has not only been here before, but has seen every stage of childhood.

From bringing home 8 boys before, to sending 2 on their way in the world,
She knows every pain, struggle and triumph motherhood holds.

The panic of motherhood has been replaced by a calm awareness,
Not because she has conquered the task, but because she has faith that her best is enough.

She knows being a mom is hard and demanding, she's tired and frustrated at times,
But she finds no other place in the world she would rather be.

With age comes experience,
With age comes peace.

Here's to a wonderful mother, expecting her first girl after 8 wonderful boys!!

Isn't she beautiful!???

What are your thoughts?  How did you feel at different ages of pregnancy?  Were you one who LOVED being pregnant, or did you find yourself yearning for the 9 months to come to an end?

Thank you for stopping by!  Stay tuned tomorrow for a follow-up on this mom as I reveal a session I did with one of her oldest sons as he prepared to leave on a two-year mission!

Have a wonderful evening!!
