Six Months Old

She's six months and it's crazy to think that for half a year now my life seems to have stopped. I don't have much to show for these past few months, but this beautiful baby girl. We have loved watching her "grow like a bean." She is such a happy girl, still so peaceful and in love with her brother, no one can make her laugh like he does. I hope that the next years of my life don't pass as quickly as these last months, but sadly, I think they might. I am going to have to get used to a new normal.

Fall Leaves

We have had the most beautiful Fall. Boy, have we been lucky! We went up the canyon for a picnic in the leaves. It got dark a little earlier than we thought, but we had time to snap a few pics on that gorgeous night. Somehow, that little time that we were there in the beauty of the mountains completely recharged me. What a wonderful time of year!

Kindergarten Boy

Brooks started Kindergarten. He loves it. Kindergarten has changed both our lives. Brooks loves Mr. Holt and thinks school is the greatest. I have had my moments of missing him, but love what a big boy he has become. There is something so exciting about being in school. I am thrilled he loves it like he does, I know it's just the beginning of so much school to come.

On his first day of school, I got a little teary for a minute and Brooks said "Mom, don't worry. I don't have to go. . . I can just stay at home with you." I am so glad he went, no more tears here!

St. George

We had a great stay with friends in St. George a couple of weeks ago. We all had so much fun! The end came much to soon.

Avery, Cohen, Emerson, Ethan and Brooks at the bounce house almost all to ourselves.

Such a fun pool complete with "infant area" and all.

Ethan, Alexis, Avery, Morgan and Brooks. Buddies!

Thanks for such a great stay. Here's to next time.

4 Months Old

Miss Morgan is four months old and growing so fast. She is getting so strong and still sleeping so well. The newborn days seem to have come and gone in an instant. She is such a peaceful girl, happy and often laughing at her brother. She has made this the most amazing summer. I think she might be the best baby ever! Happy four months baby girl!

Summertime . . .

. . . And the living's easy!

We have had a great time this summer. We have had so much fun these last few weeks, staying super busy. We have had quite a few pool days, which produced my favorite picture of Morgan yet. Just look at those beautiful blue eyes!

My dear friends threw a party for Morgan and I. It was a wonderful day. Look at those cute cookies, they are little carriages. Many of my favorite people came to celebrate Morgan. It really meant a lot to me.
We went to San Diego this last week for the Utah Bar Convention. We had a great time. We went to Sea World. We spent some time on Coranado island. This little buggy-bike was our mode of transportation for a while. It was much harder than it looked, but very fun.

We spent the day at the most beautiful beach. Morgan had the right idea. Is there a better way to enjoy the beach? I think not!

Just diggin a hole.

The best part was spending time with fun friends. Wish we could go back.

We even got to have a bonfire and roast marshmallows on the beach with my brother and his fiance's great family who were there as well. Such a fun time.

Summer has been magical so far and sadly seems to be flying by. But, we are loving every minute!
