my first week as a mother




So many people say that you can't understand what it is like to be a parent until you become one, I would have to agree! I am only 10 days into this and the thoughts, feelings, and experiences are so very rich! Amazing that such a little person can be the fount of so much LOVE! I knew that I loved her before I met her, but now that I know her my feelings have just multiplied!!!
Giovanni is a Fantastic pappi and he really LOVES little Lottie! He loves placing her on his bare chest so she can cuddle next to him! It is really sweet to see them together! For now we are loving the beginning of this new adventure!



I am here to tell you all that being the mother of Piccola Charlotte is GREAT!

Rach, thanks so much for keeping us posted on the new little one. She is precious and I loved the first photos at the hospital. You are blessed to have met Geo - you radiate love. You are correct, he is great guy. That's the only reason Uncle Roger and your Dad gave him permission to marry you..........Looking forward to holding sweet Lottie this Spring or early Summer. Enjoy dear - Motherhood is an adventure - one that helps you grow BUT, oh the blessings of that journey! Aunt Donna XXOOXX
