Don't take life and family for granted

One of the many challenges for our family happens to be family portraits. I know, I know... with what we have been through these past two years, family portraits shouldn't be on this "list". But it is. And probably not in the way that immediately comes to your mind. What are YOUR challenges when it comes to this? Getting everyone to smile? Making sure everyone is looking in the same direction? Do we all match? No one is blinking? ...... For us, our only real challenge is making sure we are all there. All three of us. That is the only thing I truly care about. I have been trying and planing our family portraits for the last year and a half. Every time I would set a date, Noah ended up back in the hospital, so we needed to push it back further. ..... Until yesterday. Yesterday, we had the opportunity to meet up with one of my dear friends from MOPS. Her name is Stevie and she has 3 beautiful children and one handsome (I am SURE) little boy on the way. In fact, he is due to be born in just 3 weeks! SO.. we squeezed in our session. Stevie has been a blessing to me. When I was living at the hospital with Noah, she drove all the way up to get me and take me to lunch just so I could have a break. She has a big and generous heart and I am so blessed that God has placed her in my life. I love you Stevie!

So, without further ado, here are the beautiful photos she took of our family!

Welcome to Noah's blog! We thank you for following us on our God-led journey and thank you for all your thoughts and prayers! Noah was born June 22, 2009 with many anatomical birth defects and underwent his first major surgery when he was just 4 days old. He has been in and out of the hospital since day one and has had a total of 4 major surgeries to date, with his latest one being the most extreme and difficult - his first open heart surgery on November 4 and December 17th, 2010. He is a warrior and this is his journey...

He is getting so BIG!!!!
