My sweet girls!

A couple pictures from this bad poster... I just don't have time right now - there are so many things and pictures that I want to post about, but seeing as Delaney is in my arms 90% of my day.. and I'm not fond of typing with one hand, this is all I got right now!! So, I AM still here.. sort of! ;) Here are a couple of pictures of Gwen and Delaney.. maybe someday, I'll get to post about the 2 halloween parties we've hosted this month (there are many awesome photo's from those too!!)
Gwen is better at slinging babies than I am!
sisterly love
A happy little pirate!! :)
enjoying some fall weather!
Gwen decided to be a cat wizard for her halloween party (a plain wizard for halloween in the village, and a pirate wizard for the library halloween party - I wonder what she'll be for actual halloween?!)

Remember with us..

October 15th is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. Light a candle at 7pm and remember Dresden with us as well as all the other babies who left their families too soon. http://www.october15th.com/
The biggest fear that we have is that people will forget about our baby boy. People will think that as the years go by, we will no longer feel the desperation to hold him that we did in the beginning. Special events like this and the remembrance walk we took part in a couple of weeks ago are times that we can embrace our loss fully and with others who know the pain that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives.

The remembrance walk

I've really been wanting to post about this walk (as well as a billion other things) but time is very limited these days!! Since this photo slide show was posted, I wanted to share it!

The walk was beautiful!! The people who worked so hard to set it up did such a wonderful job organizing everything!! I felt such love, sorrow and even happiness that day.. it was a very emotional event and there were lots of tears as we remembered so many sweet babies who were taken too soon.
I want to thank the family and friends who joined us that day, it means SO much! We're glad you were all there to support us and remember Dresden. I look forward to doing this again next year.
October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month - with the 15th being the specific day set aside to remember - http://www.october15th.com/

Delaney's tricks!

Sooo.. 4 weeks already!! and i'm typing w/ 1 hand btw... yeterday, Delaney was on her belly, and lifted her head!! i tried to get the camera but it as too late... so last night trying to show Shaun the newest trick.. we had the camera (not the video one tho) she showed daddy the head lift and THEN.. rolled over!!!! HOLY CRAP!! Go Delaney!!! :)
btw- i should add that this is only like the 3rd time she's been put down for tummy time! I guess even babies who are constantly held can do things like this quickly!

more later- when i have 2 hands ;)
