Marine Corps Marathon (39th)

Jonathan and Megan ran the 39th annual Marine Corps Marathon over the weekend and dominated the charts. Jonathan finished in the top 5% and Megan finished in the top 9% for gender. Even more importantly, they ran in support of TAPS (The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) and raised $660 in honor of Captain Seth Mitchell and 3 other Marines who died in a mid air helicopter collision while supporting ground troops in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The Marine Corps Marathon was established in 1976 and is currently the third largest marathon in the United States and the eighth largest in the world. The whole event was absolutely spectacular, patriotic and inspiring. These men and women are our true hero's!

The night before the race we took a nice family stroll on the national mall.

Home is where the HEART is!!

For Austin's one month birthday we had some photos taken by our favorite photographer, Tara, @ One Summer Day....You can find our other photo shoots here & here. Daddy and I  literally can't get enough of our sweet little boy. Everyday is so much fun and time together is all cuddles and laughs! It's so crazy to look back at how much he has grown in one month, he is almost 13LBS. and in the 97th percentile....he is our little tank boy! We are pretty much attached at the hip all day and I can't think of anywhere else I would rather be than at home with my two favorite boys and our sweet little Luna. Life is Good and we are soo blessed to have a healthy family and a cozy home to make memories in

Austin is ONE Month Old!

"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body" - Elizabeth Stone
I can't believe my little boy is one month old today! This has absolutely been the best month of my life since the birth of my little super star. I can't even begin to describe how blessed I feel to be this guys mommy, to be able to nurse him, cuddle him and love him!  Everyday I wake up like its Christmas morning, so excited to see what the day holds. He has changed so much in the last month and I already wish time would slow down. It still amazes me that each and every day that passes my love for him grows. I literally feel like I can't love him any more and than everyday I miraculously do love him more. On October 9th, he showed me his first smile and Mommy's heart melted into a thousand pieces.  I am his and he is mine and my life is complete with him in it. This is what life is really about, dedicating it to my son, my husband and my family! I wish I could just stop time and enjoy him as he is forever...That sweet baby scent, those beautiful blue eyes and kissable lips, his little hands and feet, his chubby little cheeks, the little faces he makes when he is dreaming and every little coo, ca, whimper and grunt makes my heart sing. Thank you Austin for choosing me to be your mommy!!
