And HOME again...

Our weekend is over, it didn't go as we originally planned, but when babies call, there is nothing I can do but try to help them.
We ended up driving home late last night after Greg got out of work. It was a whirlwind trip, but we got to take Fionn to my family's church for the first time today. All of my grandmother's friends were there in their normal seats and it's still so hard to walk in there and not see her in her normal spot with all of them. I know it's been two years, but the pain is still so real. I never imagined that she would miss my wedding, or that she wouldn't meet all my children. She was there and vibrant one day, and ripped out of our lives the next. This pregnancy was tough, not having a "nana" blanket to wrap Fionn in. Gramma Sally made Fionney a blanket that he sleeps with everynight, so it helped to ease a little of the pain. There is just something so special about the love that goes into a baby blanket from a nana...Maggie passed down one that nana made her to Fionn, but it's still not the same. Maggie was so close with her, and nana is still included in our nightly prayers, everynight, even though it's been two years now. In case I never said it enough, my nana was an amazing woman that made me feel so loved, my life would not have been the same without her...(back to this weekend)
After church, we headed out to Mema and Pop-pop's and the kids got to spend the afternoon with them while I had a couple sittings. Greg, my super wonderful assistant helped and we just went and played out in the woods for the sessions, taking in fall!
My bestest friend Andrea was home from Conneticut and she and her family were my last session, and it was so great that they finally got to meet Fionn. I can't believe that he's 5 months already, and still so many people have yet to officially "meet" him. A lot of people follow our blog, so they have been able to see him grow, but at the same time, they have not gotten a chance to meet him in public. That makes me so sad!!
I know this was just a rambling post, i really have so much i need to get done and it's taking my attention away from putting all my thoughts in order. Things are just flying through my head right now.
I started this post with the intention of adding a cute video from last Friday. Maggie was singing well, something, for Fionn while I was working and it was really cute. Forgive the noises in the background, my office also happens to be our laundry room!! I gotta say that Maggie loves to put her hats on Fionn, so that's why he has such a big hat on!! Enjoy their cute little video, as you will see Fionn loves when Maggie entertains him!!
