Unconditionally

Helllo! I (hope) to be back to a regular blogging schedule this week. I feel sort of back to reality...as much as I can be with a newborn. As I stated before, I have MUCH to share about my first two weeks as a mom, and hope to get cranking out on these posts. For today, I have a video/picture slideshow of Natalie's first two weeks in this world.

Soon after I came home from the hospital, I heard Katy Perry's new song, Unconditionally. I loved it, and I loved the lyrics...it seemed absolutely perfect for what I was feeling for Natalie. I looked up the lyrics and the meaning behind them. Katy Perry even stated in a recent interview that this song could be about many things...one of which is the love a mother feels for her child.

I've been playing this song non-stop and singing it to Natalie since she arrived home. Watching this slideshow I am aware of three things: 1. Natalie changes every day. Each day she looks a little bigger, a little more grown-up. It's scary. 2. The last two weeks have all been a blur to me. I must make bi-weekly slideshows to remember everything! ;) 3. She's so freaking cute!
Unconditionally
Katy Perry
Oh no, did I get too close oh?
Oh, did I almost see what's really on the inside?
All your insecurities
All the dirty laundry
Never made me blink one time

Unconditional, unconditionally
I will love you unconditionally
There is no fear now
Let go and just be free
I will love you unconditionally

Come just as you are to me
Don't need apologies
Know that you are unworthy
I'll take your bad days with your good
Walk through this storm I would
I'd do it all because I love you, I love you

Unconditional, unconditionally
I will love you unconditionally
There is no fear now
Let go and just be free
I will love you unconditionally

So open up your heart and just let it begin
Open up your heart, and just let it begin
Open up your heart, and just let it begin
Open up your heart
Acceptance is the key to be
To be truly free
Will you do the same for me?

Unconditional, unconditionally
I will love you unconditionally
And there is no fear now
Let go and just be free
'Cause I will love you unconditionally (oh yeah)
I will love you
I will love you
I will love you unconditionally

  1. That song is perfect and applies to so many relationships from God to family to friends. It certainly applies to the love a mother feels for her children-or the love a grandmother feels. Can't stop watching it. Natalie changes so much day by day. I miss you all every second of every day. <3 MWAHH!

  4. I love the video! It's so crazy how fast they change. I've had a few meltdowns since James was born about how fast time is going and how big he's getting! They really do seem to change daily so keep taking pictures!
