I recently gave birth to my third child. I have, again, been blessed with an angel on earth! How precious my children are to me… there are no words to fully explain. But then again, I don’t need to – if your’re reading this, you most likely have felt the deep deep love a mother has for their child. So how do we as women, as mothers, get to the place that makes us adore and worship our child, and hate our bodies? Our bodies have changed in a way that outwardly expresses the transition since giving our children life. I was blessed to not have to deal with stretch marks but this body I am in now is not the one I recognize. I am working on getting it back to a healthy shape. I care not for numbers and weights, but rather the feeling of being healthy. I spend all day loving and playing with and teaching my children. Only about 5 minutes looking at the body they have given me. At first I recoil and think who is that person in the mirror… an then I remember it’s “mama”… it’s ME. And I love them for the transformation I have been blessed with. I’d rather focus on the entire day I spend with the kids than the 5 I spend with that unrecognizable person …

You look great! Post some update pictures in a few months for comparison. I’m sure you’ll absolutely awesome!
To your story and pictures, I just have to say: AMEN! I too was a stay at home mom when my kids were little and I cared for, loved and played with them. So, I was a little squishy and roly poly after birth,but eventually I got back into shape. But they always came first.
i hope i look like that after my 3rd child
Gorgeous! You have the body of a Renaissance masterpiece!
