Adorable Little

My super cute friend Rachel shared this video on her blog (which is fabulous, you should check her out)
And I couldn't help but share it as well.
My goodness, she is so adorable.

And if you're as addicted as I am,
Here's another..

I wish I could kiss those cheeks.

Carpet and Ice Cream

I hope you all are having a fantastic Tuesday.
It's crazy around here and my house is torn apart
due to a split decision I made to rip up our awful pink carpet in our bedroom.
I just have one thing to say from the experience so far.. I hate tack strips.

Posts without images are boring so here is one from a recent session.

Red Door

The girl that took our pictures last fall was having issues with her camera that day which made so we couldn't enlarge our images very big without them being all "spotty."
So, she told us that after she got her new camera in the mail, she would do another session, for no additional fee. (which I thought was super great)
So we did it again and here we are...

 Funny thing, that red door.
Before getting our pictures done I knew I wanted some of them taken by a colored door.
That's all I knew.
So I went out searching.  So did my Mama. And my Papa.
We all had our eyes out for a colored door.
Well, my Mama found it. At a house, where nobody lived because it was for sale. 
And it had vines, which I love even more than colored doors.
So the morning of the session we started our session there, hoping that nobody would yell and/or kick us off their property.
And they didn't.
So I was happy.

Isn't it a cute door?
I want to paint my front door but I'm not so sure Davey will go for that.
Maybe I'll just do it one day and see what he thinks when he gets home from work.

Happy weekend.

Organize My Life

To keep this blog real I am going to show you a little bit of what my life looks like right now.


Yup, that's my fridge people.
Take a look at that broccoli, if it moves one inch I'm willing to bet that it and almost everything else on that top shelf would come tumbling down. 
I wish I could say it is the only thing in my home that looked this way.

Obviously we have a lot of organizing to do around here.

Starting with this.

Birthparents are amazing.
I just watched this video of one birthmother's placement
and I can't stop the tears.

Babies - Utah Newborn Session

Babies.. Babies.. Babies..
It seems that I go through phases with newborn sessions.
I'll go a while without doing many of them and then.. BAM.. I'm doing one after another.
It must be baby season.
And I love it.
Really, I love it so much.   So much that I would do a newborn session every day if I could.
 Sounds like I need to get a baby...

This little sweetheart was just that, such a sweetheart.
She is beautiful and it was absolutely my pleasure to take pictures of her.

Utah Photography - Family Session

This family is quite possibly the nicest family I have ever worked with.
And aren't they beautiful? 

  I love the pure joy on her face.

My goodness, He's 3.

Since when did I get old enough to have a 3 year old boy constantly asking me questions while assuming that I know everything?

 I swear he was just here, in my arms for the first time.

I miss baby Mason but I so love the things he is doing right now.

He is so curious and will ask anyone anything.

He recently asked me if I had a baby in my belly.  I told him that I didn't and he proceeded to point at my chest and say "Yes, Mama. You have two babies."

He has an irresistible giggle that makes anyone around him laugh right along with him.

He is fascinated by tiny babies.

He still calls his little brother a baby and when he is in an lovey mood he speaks to him using phrases like, "You're my bubba baby sweetheart" or "I love my bookie baby."

He loves animals.  He especially loves to imitate the growling ones.  His favorite one to imitate is the puma.  His growl is scary and startling. For real. I think the strangers in the grocery store are curious about my parenting when my 3-year-old boy just growls loudly at them when they tell him he's adorable.

He asks every day if he can go to his grandma's house.

He gets distraught if I squish an ant that has made it's way into our home.  "Mama, don't squish it! We need to take it outside!"

He loves going to nursery at our church.

He reminds me at the end of every day that we need to pray and read scriptures.

He still has no bum and is constantly pulling his pants up, it's becoming second nature.

He loves to watch Diego because he's an animal rescuer.

He and his little brother are chips and salsa lovers. You can't eat a plain tortilla chip without him reminding you that you forgot the salsa.

He loves any kind of ball and would play sports all day if he could.

He is a sweetheart who loves to hug and kiss and tell us that he loves us.

Lately, when we tuck him in at night and tell him that we love him, he giggles and says, "I love you more."

Man, I love this little boy.
