Making Family Memories and Traditions at the near by Pumpkin Farm! Literally 5 minutes from our house tucked into a side road is this beautiful patch of land! I loved it! Definately getting our pumpkins from them as long as they are operating! We dont celebrate Halloween, so we try to celebrate Fall and all the beauty of the season. Grace had a blast at the farm, not that she smiled for any of the pictures here...
She loves animals on shows, or in books, or even youtube. But not in person. The farm had a hourse, ducks, chickens, sheep and goats. No way!! The only animal she liked and literally hugged onto was the family farm dog. errr "puuuuuppy!"

They had the cutest hay bail slide and she thought that was great.

So farm grandpa made this little truck. I have no idea who farm grandpa is, but we heard about him and saw him on the tractor giving rides. Again, such a sweet little farm!

Grace and Papa.
They are best buds. She adores him like non-other. Except maybe Grandma. Or Elmo. But Mom definately takes a back seat to Papa. Unless she's sick, then I get all that snot. Yay.

Me and my beautiful kids!


Orion's First Two Months

Oh My! I am WAY behind on my blog and with no shame, took a little hiadas with my busy two children, lack of sleep and crazy schedule. So here is an overload of precious little man pictures!

Bless this child and his arriving 5 days early! I am one of those moms now and am so thankful! I will post the birth story later on the other blog but to summarize he was born August 15 at 10:50am. I had another drug free delivery! :) He was 7lbs 10oz and 20inches long. He had a head full of dark hair and looks 100% like his Papa! Here is our first family of 4 photo. Grace was somewhat confused who he was but quickly had to get over that! By the way, she was 17 months here!!

Psalm 139 - You are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made my sweet boy!
A friend made this for me and I LOVE this photo. Here is his 10 day photos.

Grace is an awesome big sister. She immediately became consumed with where "baby" was at all times. We are still trying to work on calling him something other than Baby. Like Orion. Or Baby O, or I'd even be happy with O. But, no, that is baby.

I love those early days where they sleep and cuddle and smell so wonderful. He already looks so much different then his birth day.

Umm, this little man is a BOY! He needs a bath all.the.time! That head full of hair is quick to smell and turn into a grease ball. He HATED baths at first. And I mean hated, but after a few weeks he gave in and stopped freaking out.
1 month old and in 3-6mo clothes. Yep, that's my boy!

2 months

They are going to hate all the sibling pictures I pose them for. But I love them. :)

And this. Oh.My. Does this photo melt my heart and make me smile whenever I see it. He is such a happy, easy baby. Aside from the fact that he was born, started eating and hasnt stopped, he really is pretty laid back. His two month appt he was already a whopping 24.5inches (91%) and 12lbs 11 oz. (Ummm Grace didnt even weigh that at 4 months!)
