Ask and you shall receive, my sister Lea asked for a blog post with Noah smiling... here it is!
We had our first Family Fun Friday since Noah was born. We took the kids to the Atlanta Aquarium. We had not been since Autumn was really small. She loved it all. Her favorite was the jellyfish. It was a wonderful morning.
We have survived a new baby and two holidays in the past few weeks. It has been great to celebrate with family, but now life is returning to normal. A glimpse of our new normal around the Gunter household... Noah at 5 1/2 weeks Noah's first babysitter...Margaret Rose. She was Autumn's first babysitter too! Autumn loves her brother!

So our Christmas baby decided he wanted to be here for Thanksgiving! Noah Keith Gunter was born November 25 at 1:11 am. He was 7 pounds and 2 ounces and 19.5 inches long. He has been a true blessing and gift from the Lord.
Autumn has been a wonderful big sister and is always looking for "babies" as she calls Noah. She is entranced with the holidays. She has a holiday nativity set and is smitten with Baby Jesus! It has been a joy to see the enthusiasm in her eyes as we decorate the Christmas tree, set up the nativity sets, and set up the Christmas village.

One of the biggest blessings for me is MMO at our church. MMO stands for Mother's Morning Out. Autumn loves to go play and I love the break it gives me to run errands, catch up on things at the house, or just have lunch with a friend. The staff at MMO is so loving and takes amazing care of Autumn. She is truly a "princess" while she is there. Last week, Carrie, one of the wonderful ladies who works there was trying out her new camera and took these pictures of Autumn. Oh, how I wish I had the eye to take pictures like this!
