Baby Brig

 I like taking pictures of my children...a lot.  I have loved my taking pictures of my newest child.

In these pictures my sweet baby Brig is 2.5 weeks old. He is growing so fast!

 I loved this little brother sleeper on him. It fit him so well. 

 His little cheeks are so kissable!
 He loves being swaddled.

 We love our baby Brig!

Lucy and Her Baby

When my mom was visiting us, she bought Lucy a very special doll at Walmart.  This doll uses the restroom like a real baby. 

Also, Lucy has given this baby doll quite a few baths in the bathroom sink, just like I do with Brigham. 

Lucy has packed her little baby doll all around.  She loves this doll.

Euphonium Fun

 Having Hyrum in middle school has brought  new adventures to our home. Hyrum made the choice to join band and he made the choice to play the Euphonium.  The Euphonium is one of the biggest instruments in the band. Hyrum has to haul the big case to and from school quite often. Brandon has decided that the noise as Hyrum practices sounds like a dying cow. However, Hyrum loves it and in time will improve.  Hyrum is loving middle school!

First BYU Game of 2016 Season

 The beginning of September brought the first BYU football game of the season.

Excitement was in the air at our house.  We made sure that Brigham had his BYU outfit on and his comfy BYU blanket to be wrapped up in.

Ben was proud to be hanging the BYU flag papa gave us on our mantle.

Ben wanted me to put Brigham in his chair by him so Brigham could watch the game with Ben.  It was too funny and cute!

Emmy made BYU chocolate for everyone to enjoy.

I don't have a picture of Hyrum, but he enjoyed the game too. It was even better because grandma could watch it with us.

Lucy fell asleep watching the game in her daddy's arms.

It was a fun night!

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.
