This last week has been really hard for me. I have been extremely sick, and as hard as it is physically, it is the emotional part I have struggled with. I have not been able to hold and love on my baby boy and it is killing me. This week has however, opened my eyes to the generosity of my friends and family. I have always known my friends and family are great, but I underestimated how supportive and generous they all truly are.

JD had to work a 48 hour shift at the fire station this week and I knew I was going to have to ask for help with Gage. Admitting I need help is hard for me. I posted a comment on facebook asking if anyone would be willing to watch him for me. The responses were overwhelming. I broke down crying as I read comment after comment of so many people willing to help. I cannot put into words how grateful I am for my friends and family. You mean more to me then you will ever know. I hope I can be half the friend that you all are to me. I love you all.

Five Months

Gage is already five months old. He is so much fun! He rolls over both ways, from back to belly and belly to back. He can sit up on his own for short periods of time. He is such a good baby... we are so blessed. He sleeps from 9:00 until 8:00 pretty much every day. He smiles and laughs and couldn't make me any happier. I always knew I wanted to be a mother, but I never knew how much he would steal my heart. He loves his binky and puts everything in his mouth (toes, toys, and pretty much anything he can get a hold of). He loves bath time and splashes water everywhere! He is my world.

I got a dSLR for my birthday last year and have been practicing photography for the last year or so. I am finally getting to a place where I am comfortable sharing my photographs. Here are a few of Gage's five month pictures that I took last week. I do have to say that this adorable little boy makes it pretty easy to take cute pictures.
