Ezra


What I love about this sweet little thing is:
 *the way he loves to be held on his dad's arm that way
*the way he lays there with his feet up as if he were still in the womb!
*and the way he would pucker up his lips. :)

He is just completely irresistible!

Emma


Wow. My sister is a hottie! Is she not the most beautiful pregnant girl you've ever seen?
I'm soooo excited to meet my new nephew this December! That's right, I'm going to meet him in December!! Little Henry. So cute :)

So, I'm actually amazed that we were able to fit this maternity photoshoot in while I was in Utah last week. Our first attempt was a total flop. It was getting dark. It was raining. We had are our kids with us. They locked themselves in the car. They cranked up the music wayyy too loud. They were tired. They were hungry. It was raining. It was DARK. I hurt my hand. Emma fell through a crate!
My goodness, the things we'll go through to do a photoshoot.....

I went to bed that night feeling like I got zero pictures that I actually liked, and when I woke up the next morning and looked at them, I was completely right. So, the first thing we did that morning was go back out, we found an even better orchard that actually had ripe fruit still in the trees which was awesome because I think it goes along perfect for maternity pictures ;) I think they turned out beautifully. Emma is most certainly the perfect subject :) And somehow I managed to only take vertical pictures during this shoot. (ok, there's one horizontal) I have no idea how this happened but I guess I like it :)

Meeting for the first time


A newborn baby is the sweetest thing. 
But what's even sweeter is witnessing the loving family he was born into meet him for the first time after waiting for his arrival at the hospital for hours and hours.
Our good friends Bekah and Jordan had their sweet baby boy yesterday night and we were so glad to meet him when he wasn't even an hour old. He is so cute and we are so happy and excited for our friends.
Congrats to the beautiful new family :)
