My new favorite

Who knew that one of my all time favorite pictures with Asher would come from a phone in a barn on the side of the mountain and that udders would indirectly be involved?

There you have it.  Much like this picture did in the past, I look at this image and see everything that motherhood means to me.  I see my neck craning, longing to be on the same level with him, I see that curious little face asking me the exact same question he did 20 seconds earlier so that I can give him the same answer again.  I see that our bodies are saying exactly what I want my words to say every moment that I’m with him.  I’ve never known closeness like I know as a mother.  I’ve never felt so comfortably bound to another person, I’ve never known anything like this.

And that little foot reaching out like that?  I die.
