I need a bigger heart for all this Love.

Despite days of exhaustion, frustration, days of being pooped on and screamed at, days of where baby wants to be held ALL THE TIME, and basically living out the hardest profession ever (Mommyhood), there come moments that completely wipe all the tiredness away and replace it with more happiness and love than my heart can handle. Moments that remind me that God must love me so much because he gave us the most beautiful and wonderful little girl ever and wants US to be her mommy and daddy. Moments that make me want to be a better person and work harder and play nicer and give more than I have. Moments that make me realize how worthless material things are and that if I had to lose everything I had but could keep this little baby I would do it in a second and not even hesitate or miss the material things.

Last night I went to check on Maddy before I went to bed. The hall light was on so I could see *just a little bit* of her. She was fast asleep but woke up for just a second. She looked up at me- half asleep- and smiled so big. SO BIG. Then she shut her eyes and was back asleep.

More than worth it. Way more.

America's Next Top Model

As promised, the Gebhardt Family of 3 took Maddy back to the pumpkin patch with Steph's determination to have poop-free Halloween Pics. I had to work on Halloween night, so we collectively decided NOT to dress Maddy up as anything but a pumpkin and this was basically our Halloween celebration. I'm glad I didn't take Halloween off because we had a total of ZERO trick-or-treaters. Even less than our last years total of three. Which means we have 2 huge bags of candy on our table. YES!!!

While there weren't as many pumpkins as our first trip and the ones that did remain were mostly warty, there were tons of cute pics. Tons. Thanks to Aunt Becky's photog skills, we once again have solidified proof that our baby is the cutest pumpkin in the patch.

Get ready for an over-kill moment of pics:
