With the exception of taking long walks around the neighborhood on Saturday to get labor moving I hadn’t been out of the house since then.  So Monday I was feeling a bit cooped up.  We decided that it was the perfect time for an outing and we still needed pumpkins for the kids to carve before Halloween.  I was quickly reminded about how scary it is to put your precious new baby in a moving car.  I resisted the urge to yell at all the crazy, wreckless drivers that were going over 30 mph.  You know, even though I really wanted to yell “Don’t you know I have a newborn in this car?!” out the window in crazy new mom fashion.  It was a short but sweet trip.  The kids picked out a bunch of pumpkins, Jonah slept through 80% of it in the sling and we came home. I absolutely LOVE the snapshot of Taryn smelling the top of his head.  It was a spontaneous moment and I love it so much because I do that 1000x a day.  There is just something about the way new babies smell.  Yum.
