beckham's first pumpkin patch


there isn't a thing i don't love about fall.

i have to say, though, that having a teeny one to share the experience with does make it infinitely sweeter.

we went with some friends over to the pumpkin patch and explored, picked the most wonderful pumpkins we could find, and pet the animals. and even though he was asleep pretty much the entire time, i can just tell that he loved it as much as we did! ;)

i put lipstick on & we took pictures & my heart exploded

over the weekend, i realized that we didn't really have any nice photos of us together yet! for shame!

so we set out to find some nice fally trees up the American Fork canyon. we succeeded, and the trees did not disappoint.

all year long i kept telling nick, "gosh i can't wait until fall because then we'll have a cute baby and be a family and everything will be so wonderful!" and now it's here! my family is here and fall is here and it is indeed wonderful.

i've never been so happy in my entire life. never so exhausted either, but he's so incredibly worth it. i didn't know my heart could be so big or break so easily at the smallest cry or whimper. so maybe i can't put milk in my cereal any more because by the time i sit down to eat it he's more than likely needing something, and i haven't slept for more than 6 hours straight in a few months, and it takes twice as long to leave the house or go anywhere. but oh my goodness. my heart wants to burst out of my chest so many times a day that i don't even care about all that stuff. all that matters it that little boy & his sweet smiles. i love love love my beautiful little family!

p.s. get the pumpkin spice oreos and eat them with a hot cup of steamed milk. trust me.

first bath

^ (he kinda liked it)

^ Koda was all interested in what was happening. She isn't his biggest fan, but she would have jumped in there with him if we'd let her.

 ^ moooom stahhhp

 ^ he'd had enough at that point. this kid does not like being wet! (just like his mommy ;)
^ my faaavorite picture!

our little snuggles had his first bath the other day (that cord took for-ev-er to come off) and it was a blast! he's getting so deliciously chunky too ;) which i'm pretty stoked about.

can i just say that clean babies smell so dang good. and naked baby bums are now my favorite thing in the entire world.
