Today I talked to a mom who gave birth to a baby with spina bifida. She is strong and relaxed, witnessing her baby have major surgery in her first 24 hours of life. She's patiently waiting to hold her sweet baby girl in her arms.

Today I talked to a mom who has never taken her child home from the hospital. She religiously visits him, just holding onto the hope that one day he will come home. She looked at my sleeping baby...noticed his outfit. Her son had an outfit just like it....but never got to wear it. Her son has never felt the crisp autumn air.

Today I talked to a mom who tragically lost her son at the tender age of 13. His shoes still by the door, where he left them. She's a sweet spirit, just trying to cope with what has to be the greatest loss of all...a child.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today I have witnessed love...the unconditional, neverending love of a parent. I thank you for these three sweet mothers. I am thankful for my children Lord, and I vow to make each day count.

Somy of you may know that my dream is to be a professional photographer. I have never had formal training, so I just practice on my kiddos. I learn something new everytime I shoot pictures of the fact that the flash was on and I didn't even realize it, thus making bright faced children in the low light. We were extremely rushed due to the fact that the temperature dropped from 55 to 41 very quickly! My next goal is to get a digital SLR camera...the film has just become way too expensive. Plus, if I had a digital I would have realized that my the kiddos faces were bright. If you want me to practice on your kids, let me know!

Fall Fun

Garrison is already 5 weeks old! Hard to believe that time has passed this quickly and it is November! He had a 1 month appointment where we discovered he had acid reflux! No wonder the little guy would cry and whine when I layed him down after he ate. I guess I should have figured it out...maybe it was the lack of sleep. Dr prescribed Zantac and we have a different baby on our hands! He now sleeps MUCH better at night...sometimes of course :)

I made Halloween dinner last night. Fischer helped me make the spooky deviled egg eyes..and insisted that we put m & m candies on them..yum!

The weather was absolutely beautiful today so we decided to take a trip to the apple orchard!

And no, we would NEVER try the apples before buying them and throw the evidence on the dare you think that!
