These are my babies.
I have spent a lot of time this summer working on our front yard,
specifically on my flower beds.
The flowers have become my babies.
I can't believe how much they've grown.
My baby boy with my babies.
I love how he gives the picture some frame of reference
of how big these flowers have gotten.
The pictures don't really do the flowers justice.
The flowers in the back are a plant called "hot lips"
and its my favorite.
All of this makes me think a lot about being a mother and my real babies. I've spent so much time with them, hopefully helping them to grow and blossom. Each of them is as beautiful as these flowers and are my real reward in this life.
