Happy Fall!

Livy and I have visited a couple pumpkin patches lately with some dear friends and family. The first visit was with Aunt Becky and our little friend. Our cousins Jessie and Jackson met up with us for the second one. Jackson is almost 8 weeks old and is as sweet as can be! He didn't make a peep the entire time, and he let me hold him as long as I wanted (which was quite a while because he decided not to join Olivia in the bounce house this year).

Olivia just loves her Aunt Bucky, unless she's asking her to smile for the camera.


Jackson posed with a pumpkin that outweighs him and his Mommy. We won't talk about how unbelievably amazing she looks, especially for having a seven week old. And if we do, we won't be jealous at all. (So this is what one can look like when they don't put on 67lbs. during a pregnancy.) I just joke - way to go, Girl.

"Please don't lay me in the baby pumpkin bin again. I do have an image to maintain, you know."

This is the best shot I got of Liv with her baby cousin, "Dackson." Oh, how she loves him. I'm a bit afraid of her being around him, but she is so gentle. She'll make a great big sister one day.

Olivia, I'm afraid you are actually attracting birds to the patch. You are too cute, My Love.

When Aunt Becky asked her to smile, Livy gave her the most irritated, snobby scowl I've ever seen. I just caught the tail end of it on camera, but it was hilarious! Hopefully it's not a glimpse into our future, say, 11 years down the line.

We tried to duplicate it. We could scowl and eye-roll with the best of them.

No pumpkins here, well, other than those two - just a sweet picture:

Aaron can't take a Sunday afternoon nap without Livy wanting to "go to sleep" with him. Funny, she never actually goes to sleep, but she does have a fun time giggling with her Daddy. I don't think he minds. Not too much, anyway.

Those were great! I especially like the one of you and Becky. Little Livy is so pretty - her scarecrow picture is too cute (but the one of you and Becky is still my very favorite)!

And, as for your concern "11 years from now" - be afraid. Be very afraid. :D

OH How adorable!!! Thanks for sharing! What is Miss Livy going to be for Halloween? We need to get the kids together to play. How far away are you from Ridgmar mall? I love the play area they have there, so much better than the parks.

Oh my goodness, can she get anymore cute??? And you're right, I think she's so adorable that she would have the opposite effect as a scarecrow :)

Does she have a costume picked out yet?
