Light and Loveliness

Reflections of Emily Sue Allen

Family / Motherhood


New buds and blossoms are appearing on the trees. Like the trees, we are in a whole new season. I am learning that if life was exciting and colorful with four kids, it’s going to be even more so with five. I’m beyond thankful for a healthy baby, and the sweet and thoughtful ways friends have served us in recent weeks. Everyone is adjusting very well, but that is not to say I haven’t had a dose of reality this week — the realization that there is no way I can do this mother-of-five thing on my own. There have been a few bumpy days, but I’m trying to be gracious with myself as I learn how to navigate the new waters.

Today (3/21) is my birthday, and my birthday wish was to take our family photo this week in front of a blossoming tree. The awesome husband made it happen. I love that guy.

One photo a week of our family throughout the year. 12/52
