Tate Farms

This past Thursday Nathan and I took Natalie to Tate Farms (our local pumpkin patch). I did not know what to expect since she is still so young but she had a blast. We had so much fun. Unfortunately our camera broke as soon as we arrived so we only had Nathan camera to take pictures.

Look at that goofy grin on her face!
She loved the swing, I'm thinking we are going to have to get her a swing set by next spring!
Us in the middle of the pumpkin patch.
Daddy and her found her a pumpkin.Here she is walking out of the maze!
Sorry that's all the pictures we have. I hate that the camera decided to quit working when we got there. Oh well there is always next year!

Wednesday For Wyatt

Join the fight for Wyatt!!!

For those of you who are not familiar with my family and what we are trying to achieve, here’s a brief run down...

Our son Wyatt was diagnosed with a fatal condition at our 18 week ultrasound, but chose to carry him to term. We waited to meet our son with love, all the time praying we would get to see him alive.

On June 1, 2009, Wyatt made his way into the world by c-section. To our amazement he had a faint heartbeat and was breathing! He died two minutes later, but I’ve clung to the two minutes my son and I breathed the same air since his passing.

Upon calling to get a copy of Wyatt’s birth certificate, I found out he was listed as a stillborn. You would assume it was a mistake (like I did), but there was no mistake. According to the definition of live birth in Tennessee my son was not “alive enough” to be deemed a live born baby. His two minutes of life has gone unrecognized by my state, and I intend to change this piece of legislation so I can solidify the validity of my son’s short life.

Wednesdays for Wyatt was created to help spread awareness for a law that needs to be changed, as well as to generate more traffic to my petition. So if you’re reading this, thanks for taking the time to help our family!

We are currently up to 1,253 signatures. Hurray! We’ve made it over my initial goal of 1,000 signatures, and now I’m dreaming big! You think you can help me get 5,000 signatures by Thanksgiving? I bet you could, and I hope this Wednesdays for Wyatt helps out tremendously. Post this to your blogs, facebook, myspace... wherever you can think of. I can’t wait to see how many more signatures we receive from this. I have a great feeling!

Hard Week

Natalie has had a hard past week :( She has been sick since about Thursday. It all started with her waking up Thursday sounding horse and running a slight fever.

Oh to the doctor we go oh to the doctor we go!

She had croup. Nothing we could do but wait it out. I hate when the doctor informs us that their is nothing we can do because it is a virus and to wait it out. Nathan kept her home with him Thursday and Friday. Saturday she still had a slight cough but not to bad and was acting great. So we continued with the planed events and went to a friends wedding! It was absolutely gorgeous outside (it was an outside wedding)!Yes, she is definitely trying to chew on the chair, but we'll get to that in a sec!

Sunday we woke up to yet another set back. Natalie woke up with a fever :( and a horrible cough! She felt horrible all day Sunday. We kept to the house all day and stayed in our p.j.'s!! Nathan kept Natalie at home again Monday to make sure we were cleared of fevers. She still has a slight cough but I think it has a lot to do with another issue all together.

Natalie is teething yet again. She is not popping one tooth, not two but three. That's right three teeth! She has became a chewing maniac!

"No baby, momma does not to try"

So if your keeping tracked that is 8 TEETH so far!! My baby is growing up right in front of my eyes. Where did my little 7lb newborn go!
