Brigham is 2 Weeks Old

 While my mom was visiting, earlier in September, Brigham turned two weeks old.  These pictures were taken on his actual two week birthday.

Those first two weeks I enjoyed everything about him.

I loved stroking his smooth soft skin and smelling his heavenly smell!

He is such a snuggly little thing. Brandon has spent many nights with him holding him so he will sleep.

He has skinny little legs. One of them even has a little freckle on the thigh. 

He has such sweet tiny ears that I love to stroke.

He would pull his legs and arms in close and scrunch up like a ball.
He would constantly pop just one eye open to look around.
He prefers to have his clothes on and to be wrapped up snug.

I love stroking his light hair on his head and on his ears.

He is such a sweet baby that we love dearly!

Fun When Grandma Comes

 For Labor Day weekend, my mom came and spent some time with us.

We loved having her here.

Of course my mom spent a lot of time holding and loving on Brigham.

Lucy was thrilled to have a buddy.  The two of them painted, played with play dough, and even went out to have lunch together with Ben and Emmy.

Also, on Saturday, my mom took most of the kids shopping. Then she took them all to our local swimming pool to swim. To finish the evening, we watched BYU's first football game of the season.

We loved every minute of having our grandma spend time with us!

Lucy's First Day of Preschool 2016

Lucy had her first day of preschool for the year during the last week of August.

Earlier in the month, she had a back to school night were she was able to meet her teacher.

She was so excited to go. She had been dying to wear her new fancy school shoes. Not to mention, she was thrilled to wear her rainbow pants. She has a thing for rainbows as of late.

Lucy insisted on putting the curlers in her hair. She wanted her hair bouncy and fancy.

This is one of my favorite pictures of my beautiful and smart Lucy Lu.  She is growing up too fast.

Lucy had a wonderful first day of school.

Sibling Love

We have a lot of love for our little Brigham in our house.
Lucy was so excited when he came home. She was ready to play hide and seek with him. We told him that he would be able to play later when he is older.

I always have lots of helpers when I give him a bath.

Lucy loves to have him watch shows with her. She has even moved his chair so he could see the shows with her.

 I love these next two pictures of Brandon with all of our kids. I love how they are exploring and loving Brigham.

 My kids get concerned when he cries. They always comment on how cute and fun he is.  They get a little concern when Brigham tries to nurse from them.  Brigham has received many kisses and hugs from his sisters.  Brigham has received some affectionate looks from his brothers.

 Lucy wanted to eat her dinner by him.

We love our Brigham!

One Last Bath

 Before my dad went home, Brigham had one more bath given by his papa.

Like I have mentioned before, my dad knows how to give the bath just right!

Brigham does not like to have his clothes taken off and be cold!

However, he does love a nice warm bath when his body gets dipped in.

There is nothing quite like a freshly washed little newborn.
