>Sawyer Patrick Smith was born this afternoon around 4:15. On his big cousin Leila’s 2nd Birthday. He is a beautiful little boy, I just couldn’t get over how sweet his little features are! I didn’t get any great pictures of him, my flash was just too bright, but I did get a few.
Leila loves “baby Sawyer” and when he cried she wanted to give him a blanket and make him all better. She was really excited to see him and she did great following the gentle rules.
Here is our new little family member!
"We are not put on this earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are always there for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you.

"What I want to say to you is that sometimes life catches you by surprise and you feel unequipped to handle what it brings you, but every bit of life you've lived before that moment equips you to live through it. That's what I would give to you."
-Fanni Victoria Green-Lemons (talking to her daughter)
If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can, there is nothing more to it than that.
"The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
