Fav Photo Tuesday.....

So I have been feeling inadequate, like I don't do enough or take good enough care of my children. Today I was reading Dorcas's blog, plus spending time praying and I just realized how blessed we truly are. This is why I am here to raise and LOVE my children. It does not matter in the least if we have a spotless house or that my children wear the best clothes. But for them to know that I love them and God loves them, that is my true purpose. To raise them to love God and do the best I can with God's help. It s so wonderful to know I can cry out to Him for help, strength and peace. I just need to do the best I can do with God's help.
Autumn's 2 month check up was today. Can you believe she was 2 months old on Sunday?!?! She is growing and is a healthy little girl, she now weighs 8 lbs and 15 oz. and is about 21 in. long, Still a little peanut but is growing up way to fast. She had 3 shots today and a oral vaccine for rotovirus. I have never heard of the rotovirus vaccine, my dr said it has been around now for about 2 years or so, how about anyone else have your children had it?
We had to do our grocery deal shopping today since our sales change tomorrow. I love the deals!! I went to Walmart today in search for a new nuk for Autumn since the soothie ones she got from the hospital don't stay in her mouth and they are the only ones she will take. So I found one and I am excited. I know silly but she needed one that would stop falling out. A friend from church told me about them and I had never heard of them, Playtex Binkie. They are the same shape as her playtex nurser bottle. I will have to let you know how she does with it after a few days.....

Well, on to my favorite photos of the week.........
