Halloween Fun.

This Halloween has been so much fun. Having a baby definitely adds to the excitement.
So please excuse the overload of pictures.

Farish family Halloween party.
This year we were all superheros. Batman, Superman, & Green Lantern.

Batman got hot.

I took Asher to a pumpkin patch. We were supposed to go with our churches MOPs group but I was late, (of course...)


He loves his pumpkin.

he didn't like that nose.

Trunk or Treating
my hair & makeup


we decorated our van as the 'magic school bus'. my mom was Ms.Frizzle & her chihuahua was Liz. <3

Baby Boy-8 months.

I kinda thought each month would be easier... that someday I would get used to him growing him. But typing that 8 was SO hard for me.

(Also it seems I have misplaced my camera, so sorry about the low-quality cell phone pics...)

He loves Blue. He will chase her around and climb all over her, she is incredibly patient and loving with him.

I went to change Asher's diaper and found all these crumbs in his button

This is how I spend each morning. We eat breakfast together and he's always so happy.

he LOVES swinging

He's almost outgrown his infant carrier, so we're in the market for a convertible carseat.

our mustaches
he has learned to smile for the camera

 This month he has gotten 6 more teeth. So he went from having 2 teeth to having 8 in one month! He now has the front four on top and bottom. He loves giving us kisses & it is so cute, but with his new teeth, he has started biting... not so cute.

He is such a big, fun, inquisitive boy. He always on the move, climbing on something, getting into everything! we have reached the point where I don't have any time outside of watching him, he also has stopped sleeping through the night... But I'm so lucky to have this boy. I love him so much, even when I'm pulling my hair out.

Look at how big he is now! Oh comparing these two pics is so bittersweet... I can't believe he has grown so much!

writing flashback.

So I've been writing a lot lately. Nothing I'm ready to share with the world quite yet, but I'm writing. and that makes me sooo happy. Just something about the pen, and paper just naked waiting to have thoughts spilled out onto them. (I am so much less creative behind a keyboard-weird I know.)
I found this piece I wrote in 2009 & it just speaks to me and what I see right now so I thought I'd just take a minute and share it. :]


"Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city." Acts 18:9-10

...and after what felt like an eternity, I see you turning...
You're lost...
You're going down the path paved before you, it seems right... and we've been taught it is right.
I'm screaming for you run this way, "Run, run away, don't let it all twist your mind, and blind your spirit." I cry out for you to join me next to Christ. You can hear me, but you don't want to understand...
You spin around and around trying to find what you need.
You think that way is easier, and Christ whispers, "Come to me; all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest... For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
I can't tell if you hear Him or not, because right as you start to stall someone calls out from the other side, "You know this feels right." You nodded, closed your eyes, and followed along... just as He spoke these words, "The heart is deceitful above all things."
I cry and beg my Lord to save you from the traps.
He looks at me, wipes my eyes and tells me, "Love is patient... I know it must not be your time, only He knows...
I'll keep on praying, keep on fighting to help in the only way I can anymore. You're running away and running out of time... You need to hurry and choose for yourself this day whom you will serve.

One Year Anniversary Pics.

 For our one-year anniversary I really wanted to get pictures done. The friend who did these doesn't shoot typical portraits, she likes to use themes to help create art. So when I was setting this up she was asking me what our 'theme' should be... I was stuck. I felt like we are SO boring most of the time. I was telling this to Nic, "We are so boring, we just hang out in bed, eating snacks, reading to each other, tickle fights..." & that is when this idea hit me. I couldn't stop giggling during the shoot, which helped them turn out so well.

I don't know where I'd bewithout you here with me,
life with you makes perfect sense,
You're my best friend.

I loved you since the very first day
When I caught you looking my way
I smiled and just knew it

We're gonna do what lovers do
We're gonna have a fight or two
But I ain't ever changing my mind
Crazy girl, don't you know that I love you?
I wouldn't dream of going nowhere
Silly woman come here let me hold you
Have I told you lately I love you like crazy, girl?

How do I love you
Well count the ways
There ain't no number high enough
To end this phrase

<3 you Nicholas.
