Operation Tadvickian Mongoose

For the last 6 months I have been working on a project to honor the doctor that delivered Mason and Sawyer. We finally finished it and had the reception honoring Dr. Tadvick tonight. It was so great!! Stephanie started talking to me about her idea for this back when I was pregnant. She wanted to get a couple of families together and take pictures of their kids that Dr. Tadvick had delivered. This is where I came in. She wanted me to take the pictures. So of coarse I agreed! Dr. Tadvick helped us so much through trying to get pregnant and being pregnant. He watched me so carefully and took great care of us. So what started off as, "I hope we can find 15 families," turned into 59 families. Which was 10 different days of photo mini sessions for me!! After I took all of the pictures I compiled a picture and a letter from each family into a coffee table book. It turned out great and I am so pleased with the final product.

The reception tonight was also a huge success. Dr. Tadvick had no clue that it was all for him. He thought that he was coming to a Peru fundraiser for Stephanie and Lee. When he got there one of the first things he said to his wife was, "I think I delivered nearly every baby in this room." Ha! He was so shocked and it was so much fun to watch his face as they told him that the entire party was to honor him!

It is all done now though and I have posted a website for all of the participats to view the book and video from tonight: OTM Website.

I am way behind on my blog reading, and I've enjoyed catching up on your latest. Such a cool thing you did for Dr. Tadvick! I'm not one of his patients, but it kinda makes me want to be. :)
