Autumn Faith Hess

So our little Autumn hasn't been feeling well for the past few days - a little RSV, the stomach flu and a fever. So her and Jen have been spending days together while she is trying to get better. For those of you who know Autumn - you know how unusual it is to get a moment like this with her. Jen said that this was her all day yesterday. She was miserable.









On my way home from work I stopped and grabbed something that I thought would make her smile - hard to believe but Dad is still the hero!!

Here is also a picture of Jayna doing a school project - she had to take 100 things to school for the 100th day of school. She asked me if she could take some wirenuts, so I brought some home and here she is counting out 100 of them.






Lastly, Autumn is feeling much better today - after 2 days her fever broke last night (I think that it was the rocking horse - Jen doesn't necessarily agree) so today she was much more herself. Jen decided to go to church tonight so Autumn and I hung out. When she is ready to go to bed Jen usually carries her to her room whereas I let her walk. Tonight she was a few steps in front of me and I walked in her room to this: (of course this is reenacted for video sake)
