Mito Video

This is a great Mito Video that I borrowed from another Mito mom. Warning, you made need tissues for it. It really drives the point across and explains it all well and shows you the faces of Mito. Landon is not in this, but I think it is a great resource and tool and everyone should watch it to help bring awareness and to Landon and mito kids like him.

I Love You sweet Landon and am so very, very blessed to be your mommy.'

Landon 2.5 and Emeline 7 month pictures!!

We went home to Dallas for 5.5. days and had a blast (will do another post about that)! While we were there my mom and I took the kids to get professional photos taken for Landon's 2.5 year photos and E's 7 months (we missed 6 months, but this is close enough!). I love how they turned out and can't wait to be able to put 1 of each kid on a canvas to add to my collection!

He is such a goober!

My favorite of Landon. He was very active so we didn't get a lot of him, but we did get good ones when he was momentarily still!

Nakey Baby!! My mom has one of me just like this at her age.

So sweet, we were trying to get one of her and Landon and she just wasn't having it.

More than happy to sit in the chair like a big girl!

One of my favorite pictures of Landon of all time is of him crying holding a rubber ducky, so I wanted one of her about the same age as well.

My mom has a picture of her at E's age in a dress almost exactly like this in a similar pose, this picture really means a lot to both of us, I can't wait to get them framed side by side!

New Mito Facts

New Mito Facts for thoughts...

Every 30 minutes a child is born that will develop a Mitochondrial Disease by age 10. The emerging consensus is that mitochondrial disease affects at least 1 in 500 children, which makes mito as common as childhood cancer

Definitely thought provoking and why we MUST spread the word and raise awareness about kids like Landon.
