New Earrings, Sibling Love, Go BYU!

Today felt lighter.
I woke up and everything was ok.
Life is funny with its ups and downs.

Guess who is TWO MONTHS OLD!

The three older kids have spent hours and hours and hours playing outside the last couple weeks.

Ember talks to her toys a lot lately.
Photobucket
Which I find overwhelmingly cute! I love when babies coo at inanimate objects!

PhotobucketPayson loves attention from mommy.

The girls got new earrings since Brooklyn broke one of hers and Sierra lost two of hers. These kids go through a pair of earrings every other month!
Brooklyn begged me to take a picture of her new ones.

They have matching earrings now.

I have a picture of the three older kids laying on the floor together from when Payson was a baby. I decided to try for one like that of all four kids.
Photobucket
Ember wasn’t happy with that idea! The older kids scare her when they make loud noises and she’s not in my arms.
Photobucket

But she calmed down when she heard my voice. It was cute how Payson reacted to her whimper… he came over all gentle and was saying, “Oh, Embow, it’s ok.”
Photobucket

Brooklyn wanted to hold Ember so I said, “Sure and we’ll get a picture of the four of you together!”
Photobucket

Payson was making Ember wave.
Photobucket

Which I don’t let him do because he did that once before and then stood up to run off while still holding her hand!
Photobucket

So I got up and told him to sit on Brooklyn instead and be the big baby.
Which he LOVED. I have twenty pictures of them together laughing and stuff that are so cute.

Payson is surprisingly very gentle when it’s his turn to hold her. He holds totally still and just looks at her face and tummy and hands and looks so proud and happy.
Photobucket

Later Payson colored while the older girls went outside to play again.
Photobucket

But they came back inside when I turned on the BYU football game.
Photobucket

Go cougars!
Photobucket

Brooklyn took my camera and started snapping.
Photobucket

Allan was sadly at work so I texted him about the game the whole time.
Photobucket

Photobucket

Ember was wearing Payson’s BYU shirt since he was taking a nap.
Photobucket
I tried out the bumbo but she’s still too little.
Photobucket
I’m going to make the switch to all cloth soon. I decided to try out the size medium diapers I already have from Sierra and Payson to see if I could skip buying more.
Photobucket
Um, nope, way too big even on my getting pudgy little girl.
Photobucket

She was perfectly happy with her too big diaper, though.
Photobucket

I changed her during halftime. Then she fell asleep while nursing.
Photobucket

So I set her on the couch next to me and she woke up immediately.
Photobucket

Payson woke up from his nap during the 4th quarter.
Photobucket

So he and I watched the end together.
Photobucket

I love this kid.
Photobucket

He took this one:

While Payson and I finished watching the game, Ember was over in her bouncy chair talking to her toys.

The girls were still playing outside while I made dinner.

And that’s all!!

  • Hey Ariana, I love your blog!I love your picky eater tips, and your photography is really good. I was wondering where you got the cloth diapers from? I'm guessing a website or something. I would love to try them!

  • You have such cute kids! I'm glad that things are going better today. I have some cloth diapers and stuff that my baby has outgrown (and some that my son used to wear before he potty trained). You are welcome to any of them if you would like. By the way, I am not a TOTAL stranger. We chatted once at Target. šŸ˜‰ Let me know if would like the diapers or not.

  • I have to admit that I never thought much of baby feet until your blog. I've always thought their little hands and cute chubby arms are cute, and of course their sweet faces, but I'd never thought much of their feet. But after seeing so many cute baby feet pictures of Ember, I'm starting to see the light. šŸ™‚
    Also, I just LOVE that close-up of Brooklyn where you can see the adorable freckles on her face. Too cute.
