mama + son.

Aiden made me a mama.

He is my first born! I have experienced countless firsts with this sweet boy and on top of that the sweet, special bond between mama and son. It is beautiful and precious in my opinion. My sweet boy is three now but I made a slideshow to give you a taste of our journey and a taste of our relationship. Here is a peek into my world!
