365 Project: October 13 - October 19

After waking up with a 102 degree fever yesterday, my baby girl was ordered to a day of R & R. She woke up this morning feeling quite a bit more like herself so, off to school she went!

Today was the first day of MEA break so we met some friends at a big, outdoor park and needless to say, Mady was a wee bit tired when we got home... Here she is, napping (the bulge in the background), but what I find hilarious is the MOUND of stuffed animals that she trades out for snuggle time every day. These were the "losers" today.

My name is Amanda and I have a wonderfully crazy, full life. I have been with my love, Nate, for about six years now, and have been for married to him for almost three of those. We sure have been given more than our fair share of ups and downs but in the end, we have come out more united and even more in love [too mushy? I don't care.]. We made a beautiful, silly, loving, helpful, sassy little girl from scratch almost five years ago. Yes, you read that right, FIVE. Time really does fly when you're having fun. A little over two years ago now, we lost a baby [at 23 weeks gestation] due to severe health complications caused by Turner Syndrome. Since then, we've created a beautiful butterfly garden

Tea party at a playdate with friends for Day 2 of MEA.

Today, Dad leaves us for four days. Hopefully we all make it out alive... ;)

Buppa came over this morning to do a little work on our never-ending basement remodel that we started over 2 1/2 years ago. Maybe this is the kick start we need to really get movin! Hey, one can dream, right?

A little light to the darkness.

Bedtime stories are always more fun with flashlights.

Keep our circle going and check out what the amazing Charity was up to this past week!
