{almost 5}

I can't believe it...look who is {almost five}!! The last five years of being a mother have been the greatest. I can't believe my first little baby is growing up so fast! I love him to pieces!
Isn't he just a little stud? He's like my little pro model. He knows just what to do when I take his picture! I love it.

See what I mean about a little pro model? Check out his pose and face in the next pic.

Here's a little cheese in this next one.

This is the face he gave me when I asked him to sit down on the bridge again. He said it was SO hard. By the way, apparently this bridge is off limits if you were wondering. It's has been a very popular spot for photos in the fall for photographers, but I later found out it is private property and the owners don't want people taking pictures there anymore. Just a little FYI they asked me to pass on...

Too bad...it is such a beautiful bridge....

This one is because I want to remember that pout. (He was stretching because he was so tired from taking pictures. It is apparently hard work being so handsome!)

And this next one is so I never forget his cute cheesy grin.

Love you, Bennett. Please stop growing up so fast!

Last week, Coy was given his blessing. What a special day it was! I love my little family, and my wonderful hubby!
And can you believe the BEAUTIFUL weather we've been having? Who would have thought that we could celebrate with a luncheon OUTSIDE in the middle of October! It was such a perfect and beautiful day.
Can you believe how much a baby can change in just two months!? He is such a little darling; such a sweet and smiley baby. We are so happy to have him in our lives!
He truly is a {blessing}...

I bought Coy's outfit right after we found out we were having a boy. I can't believe the day he got to wear it has already come and gone! I just love soft sweater outfits (Bennett had an off-white one, too), so when I saw this one go on Clearance at babyGap, I snatched it up right away! His little loafers were the ones from SimplyJCrochet.

i {heart} fall

My favorite season is finally here. When I think of Fall I think of crisp air, sweaters, caramel apples, spice, crunchy leaves, choosing pumpkins, bright colors, football games, early sunsets, and canyon drives.

Last week we drove up to snow basin to see the leaves. It has become a tradition with Russ's family to go the Sunday before conference. The leaves were beautiful, though not as strikingly so as in other years. Maybe because the weather has still been like summer? But I think today, the fall is setting in! Cross your fingers for sweater weather!

Nothing like gorgeous setting sun pics. Mylie had to blow the dandelions:

Can you believe my little Coy...not quite as little anymore! He is 8 weeks old now (7 weeks in this picture).

Cute cousins!
