Life lately.

It's been a fast 5 weeks.  Much faster than the 5 weeks before Nora was born. :)  Deacon has adjusted well & I'm very thankful for that.  It definitely hasn't all been easy and yesterday I was ready to turn in my 2 weeks notice as a stay at home mom, but the Lord's mercies are new every morning!  Today has been much better.
Nora's first walk.

A couple of weeks ago we went to the Lost Creek Preserves Fall Festival.  Nora wasn't all that interested, but...

....Deacon had lots of fun.  

I was quite proud of him when he rode the pony all by himself.

Time to pick out a pumpkin.

20 months old.

The other day I was out in the kitchen cleaning up things.  I put in the movie Cars ( a new one for him) and came in to check on him a little later & I found this.  A first for him!

Nora at 4 weeks old.

Unlike her brother at this age, she enjoys her hair being washed & with all of that hair, she gets a lot of head  rubbing which results in lots of grease!
The last few weeks has once again showed that life is so short.  With the passing of Jerry a couple of weeks ago & then my brother-in-law's mom last Friday, the Lord brought a couple of things to my mind.  Do the ones I love, know that I love them? Do I tell them?  Do I show them?  It's something I've been pondering lately.
