Lauren (pictured left) ~ I love being a mom because my babies give me a reason to wake up (early) every day. I love caring for them and seeing them learn and grow. Life would be so boring without my littles!
$75 gift card winner:
Ruth ~ I love being a mom because it makes me slow down and appreciate all the little things and moments in life, like the delight of identifying circles and triangles everywhere we go, the joy of PB&J, the victory of getting one's dirty socks into the laundry hamper, and the peace of a sleeping toddler still clutching his ball.

Thanks to everyone for sharing. We loved seeing all your gorgeous photos, adorable babies, and beautiful bumps! We had such a wonderful response, that we wanted to share some of these beautiful photos and entries expressing why you love being a mom...
I love being a mom because being a mom means unconditional love. It means providing comfort and warmth to my children. It means worrying every second if my children are okay. It means hoping and praying I am making all the right decisions in their best interest. It means never stopping when the day is done and the children are in their beds safely asleep. It means wearing many hats every day to make sure my family's needs are met. I have always wanted to be a mom and am so blessed to be here in this phase in my life. If I do nothing else in life, I want to make sure my children feel that unconditional love every single day of their lives. If I can instill that in them, I will have fulfilled my purpose in life. ~ Corinna
I love being a mother because my heart grew infinitely when I laid eyes on my girls, and they give me the purpose in life that I was born to have. ~ Kathleen
I love being a mom because it's challenging and beautiful. Everyday is a different experience. Nothing is like watching my child grow and learn new things daily, while being able to provide nourishment from my own body for him. ~ Lora
I love being a mom because my baby girl has taught me so much about love, patience, and selflessness . I believe I have become a better, more compassionate, and loving person since I've become a mother. ~ Lela
My daughters have cracked my heart open, and taught me how to be the most patient, selfless version of myself. ~ Lauren
