Soccer Exposure

Faye and I were able to watch Reed's last soccer game of the season!  It was a cold morning in Roy, but it's always fun to watch my brother play soccer.

Mom has a great eye and or skill for action shots.  Even though this game was quite overcast and light was an issue, she still managed to get some great shots of Reed and his team mates.

It is common knowledge that soccer is a family sport.  My parents have a full sized goal in their back yard and everybody is excited for Faye to learn how to play the game.  Reed decided to introduce her to the sport after his soccer game.

(As a side note, I absolutely love this jumper/fuzzy suit of joy!  Please note the little ears on the hood.  My baby looks like an ewok!)

More Leaves

One last photoshoot in the leaves for this year.  This time we brought along our friend, Andrea, and her little boy, Sean.  Both of the kidlets were sporting their Halloween outfits.

Sean is a speedly little guy and was more interested in crawling around than sitting for pictures.  It was an adventure trying to get a picture of him.

Yay for this time of year!

As mentioned earlier, I got hit with a cold this last week.  For me, being hit by a cold this early in the season means that I could be sick for three months straight.  Luckily, things seem to be improving, but now the rest of the house isn't feeling so swell.  Alan and Faye stayed home from church today in attempts to feel better.  Hopefully it's just a fluke and they don't catch the full on cold, but goodness knows.

Three Months

Having Faye's three month photoshoot was a bit more difficult than I would like to admit.  Monday was her three month mark as well as Alan's 24th birthday as well as the day I was hit hard with a cold.  Alan's birthday was the real tragedy.  Work and school for him, a sick wife, no presents (the UPS guy didn't bring them until Wednesday), and homework. Happy Birthday! As a result, Alan's birthday and Faye's three month "birthday" lasted all week long.  Yay!

This week was UEA/Fall break and our family was graced with the presence of my mom and Reed on Thursday afternoon.  We had a mission to take Faye's three month pictures.  We drove up the canyon, yet again, in search of fallen leaves.

Reed is such a good sport and a good uncle.  He was more than happy to help us take pictures of Faye, and he was kind enough to carry all of our baby equipment down the trail after Faye decided she was too tired to cooperate any more.   I love that brother.

In addition to Faye's three month pictures, I wanted to try and get a few pictures of her in the Halloween outfit I made for her.  Again, Faye decided she was too tired for pictures once we switched her outfits, so I'll have to take more later. 

It's becoming more obvious that Faye is a bit of a Daddy's girl already.  We'll put her in the swing for an evening nap; our swing is a hand-me-down and wasn't given to us with an adapter, so we just push it.  The swing is set next to Alan's desk, so Alan usually pushes Faye when he's home.  So what makes her a daddy's girl?  Lately, Faye hasn't been content to just sit in the swing and stare at Alan, she prefers to sit on his lap.  She smiles nearly every time she sees Alan, and if he comes over while Faye is eating, she would rather look at Alan than eat her dinner.  It makes me smile to know that her love for Alan isn't something I've made up.

Pile of Leaves

So, my soul desired to take more pictures of my little lady, and it was suggested, by my Mom, to put Faye in a pile of leaves for a fun, autumn photo.  The problem is, none of the trees in the valley have changed color and started dropping leaves!  So Faye and I went for a drive up the canyon hunting for some leaves.

I promise I don't put lipstick on my baby!
