Saturday, September 27 was a great day. The weather was nice, I did some birthday shopping with my mom and then came home to edit on some photos. I had eaten dinner, had Friends on in the background and was editing away when I got the text…”Heading up to the hospital, I’ve been having really strong contractions the last hour and a half. I’ll let you know if I get admitted.” I knew it was time!! I kicked into high gear, got my stuff together, changed my clothes and called my mom who was going with me. An hour later I got the text that said, “Being admitted!” which was quickly followed by “Dilated to 6, my water just broke”. I was in the car and on the road! I stopped in Joplin to pick up my mom and on to Springfield we went. By the time we got there Tori was an 8 and little man’s heart rate was dropping during contractions. Right after I walked in the hospital Tori was moved to the operating room and they were talking about a C-Section. Garret was given scrubs and we were able to see him and pray for a few minutes before he went back to be with Tori. I wasn’t able to be in the delivery room, but I was in the room when the new family was wheeled back in. It was so very special. Here are a few (and by a few I mean a LOT) of the moments I was able to capture.WyattBlog_001 WyattBlog_002 WyattBlog_003 WyattBlog_004 WyattBlog_005 WyattBlog_006 WyattBlog_007 WyattBlog_008 WyattBlog_009 WyattBlog_011 WyattBlog_012 WyattBlog_013 WyattBlog_014 WyattBlog_015 WyattBlog_016 WyattBlog_017 WyattBlog_018 WyattBlog_020 WyattBlog_022 WyattBlog_023 WyattBlog_024 WyattBlog_026 WyattBlog_028 WyattBlog_029 WyattBlog_030 WyattBlog_031 WyattBlog_033 WyattBlog_034 WyattBlog_036 WyattBlog_037 WyattBlog_038 WyattBlog_039 WyattBlog_040 WyattBlog_041 WyattBlog_042 WyattBlog_043 WyattBlog_044 WyattBlog_045 WyattBlog_046 WyattBlog_047 WyattBlog_048 WyattBlog_049 WyattBlog_050

Yesterday we celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary. I can’t believe that we have been married for 4 years already. I’m sure I will say the same thing every year but it is amazing how fast the time really does fly. I couldn’t imagine life with anyone else. And since I established last week how much I love music, I will share the lyrics to one of my new favorite Lady A songs. I think they sum it up pretty well…

I don’t know how many stars fill the sky
I know we’re here, but I don’t know why
Maybe there’s some other life out there
But as long as you’re here with me, baby, I don’t really careThere is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

Don’t know what happens when we leave this world
But I know I’ll go right on loving you girl
I’ll close my eyes and drift off into the blue
And if I go first, I will wait for you

There is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

I guess I’ll never really know
How I deserve someone that loves me so

There is only one great mystery
I keep searching for the answer desperately
Tell me, tell me baby, tell me please
What did I ever do to make you fall for me?

Happy Anniversary Love!

Let’s Talk Music

While I’m busy working away on loads of pictures of weddings and babies, I listen to music. Or I watch DVDs of my favorite shows. But today let’s address the music. I mostly spend my time listening to country music. My ipod is full of all genres but county certainly dominates the playlists. Right now I’ve got 2 albums on repeat. Kacey Musgraves’ Same Trailer Different Park and Lady Antebellum’s 747. So, if you’re looking for something new I highly recommend these. My favorite tracks are: Keep It To Yourself (Kacey) and One Great Mystery (Lady A). And if you want to really get into my scary music selection go get some Miranda Lambert, Justin Timberlake, T Swift, Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, Little Big Town, Keith Urban, George Strait, Trisha Yearwood, Pam Tillis, and of course the 90s boy bands. Now that I have horrified so many of you with the music that I listen to I have to go bake a cake for a baby shower tomorrow. And listen to the music. Happy Friday!
