The Great Pumpkin...

Last weekend I took Chris to the Burgers Farm pumpkin patch. We saw a puppet show, walked through Pumpkin Land, saw some animals, played on the slide, took a hayride and of course, picked out a pumpkin. Chris walked right over to a little pumpkin, picked it up and carried it around, like he was making claims to it. Sure, he dropped it a few times, but no harm was done.
Can't wait to go back next year!

It's not easy being a Cincinnati Bengal's fans these days. Actually, it's not easy to be a Cincinnati fan in general. Every Sunday we get dressed up in our Bengal's gear and watch as the Bengals blow it. This week was just too much for some of us...

Could it really be that it has been a year since my baby arrived??? Everyday I look at him and think about how much he has changed our lives for the better. I can barely remember life before him (what did we really do all day without him to entertain us?!?!).

Prior to having Christopher, I knew our lives would change. I just never could have imagined though, how much they would change. I had no idea how amazing it would be the first time we laid eyes on him, or heard him make the tiniest of noises! I didn't know how heart broken I would be the first time he got sick or had to have shots...because it was the first time in his life that he felt pain and there was nothing I could do to stop it. I had no clue how frustrating it could be to watch someone try to accomplish a new task, such as crawling, over and over and over again...and how rewarding it is to see them finally accomplish it! I never knew how contagious a baby laugh really was...until I had Chris.

In the past year I have learned a whole new meaning of love...and I can't wait for MANY more years to come to experience it a little more!

Children make your life important.

Wordless Wednesday...

I saw wordless wednesday on someone else's blog a while back...and decided...with the kind of day I am having, it is probably just better to leave today wordless. That being said...I get to go home to my baby in a few minutes and life will be good again!
