That is one happy mama!

I LOVE this picture...  I look so free and happy, not a worry in my heart or mind.  God is so good.  I'll attach the pic when Noah was born to compare.  I was smiling, but my brow was all furrowed and my eyes weren't quite as sparkly... Postpartum depression had already begun.  It has been amazing to now experience what it feels like to have a baby and bring her home without any of that blackness hanging around me....  *sigh*

You look beautiful in both photos but I completely understand what you mean about how you feel in Noah's first photo.

I cringe anytime my mom tells the story of how after James was born and the doctor told me to look at him and I said no. Instead of opening my eyes to see him I kept them shut and cried.
I didn't know why I was so upset and why I didn't feel the way I thought I should.

I'm hoping for a big smile and sparkly eyes with the next one!
