Us 4 out at Joe's dad's farm by the river.
Had hot dogs, a fire and a fresh caught fish from the pond.

Mr. Wes at 4 weeks. :)

Abby pretty proud of her fly fishing!

She caught 4 fish- one didn't make it in the release program so we cooked it- yummm.

Things that I Love

Joe, Abby and baby Wes...
Red Rose tea with milk and honey in it...
The sound of the sprinklers outside and how green the pasture is now!
The sideways light in the evening, the porch all lit up pink...
Chocolate mint ice cream.... (have been eating a lot of this lately)
The smell of coffee and matte'....
Nag Champa today, a quiet house and a nap....
When people look at you and really SEE you, that they take the time and invest themselves even though it isn't always easy....
How fast Abby talked about all her adventures of the county fair today and that she wants to show cows like her big cousin Jake....
Smoothies for dinner......

New Pics

Finally asleep today- he has been a little fussier last few days, Am trying to decide if its omething i'm eating or just the 3 week growth spurt thing.
Last time we weighed him he was almost 10 lbs. with his clothes and diaper- he is growing fast.

His first real bath. Abby thought it was great having him in there and he didn't mind it at all.

Things that I had forgotten.......
That buzzing that you get in your head from lack of sleep but somehow you get used to it.
How it is possible to not remember if you got up and changed a diaper in the middle of the night.
How sad I felt when she started crying real tears.
How long you can actually stare at your child asleep or awake and be totally entertained and in love.
How they smell and just how many times you can kiss a baby in a day.
How good it feels to re-enter the world and start to feel like you are getting back to normal.
Just how good it feels to NOT be pregnant.
And how much hope resides in such a little being that sometimes you feel your heart can't take it.

Wes meeting his great grandmother Katie

Abs snugging her brother on the couch- was probably the stillest she had been since he was born.
And her other front tooth finally came out! Horray some toothless pictures.

My sweeties.
