FALL is here

My all time FAVORITE time of year is here!!!
Their is something magical about the fall to me, I love the crispness in the air and the colorful leafs. Austin took Brody and I for a drive up the Alpine loop on Saturday. It was beautiful!!!!

We looped all the way down to Sundance and took the tram up to the top of the mountain. Brody loved the fresh air and watching all the mountain bikers come down the trails. We got up to the top and hiked over to where Austin proposed to me.

Here Brody and I are sitting right where Austin proposed to me. It was fun going back and seeing it. Fun memories!!! It is crazy how fast time goes, 6 years later and we are with our little man and prego with a 2nd baby.
Under that Aspen Grove is where it happened! :)
We got a picture of us right under this sign after we got engaged. We had to get one with our little man too!!!
After we had a walk down memory lane, we headed back down the tram and had a picnic under the trees.
It really was the best day with my little family!! Love you both so very much!

Hogle Zoo

On Saturday September 4 we took our little man to the Zoo to check out all the animals. Austin and I hadn't been to the zoo since we were dating so it was fun to go back now that we have a child to share the excitement with. Brody loved all the monkeys and especially liked the giraffes, he has one in his room that he likes to wave and say hi to every morning, I think he recognized it was the same, he kept waving at them and looking at me smiling. Majority of the animals were sleeping or they could have been dead we weren't quite sure. Poor things are so bored in their 10x10 cages. They have built more and changed alot of the areas since we have been there. It looks really nice.
We had so much fun with Brody! He makes everything extra special.

Brody's 1st Birthday Party

On the Sunday before Brody's Birthday, we had a Nemo themed party for him. He LOVED it!!! There was yummy food, a water slide, lots of balloons and family that adores him. He got spoiled with fun gifts by everyone, he had a hard time opening all his presents, once we opened one he wanted to play with it and didn't get why I would put it aside and have him open another present. haha It was pretty funny, but he loved everything he got and has been having so much fun playing with all of it all week.

His aunt Chelsea made the cutest Nemo cake just for him and then made cupcakes with nemo on the top for everyone else. She was so sweet to make this for his party, she is quite the talented lady. :) Brody ran around and giggled all day, he splashed in the water and kept trying to climb up the back of the slide to go down all by himself, he wasn't scared a bit. What a big boy!!!

It took him a minute to figure out what he was suppose to do with this bright colored thing in front of him, but as soon as I helped him with his first bite and he realized it was something yummy, he dug in and destroyed the whole thing. YUM!!!!!

Brody's 1

Our Darling Mr. Brody Boo is 1 today!
He has grown so much in the last year and is the joy in our house. He puts a smile on our faces the moment he wakes up in the morning and keeps us giggling all day long.

(Brody at 1 week)
Brody was born at 12:03am on September 2, it sure was hard to get him here but worth every minute of it. We don't know what we would do without our little man.
(Brody at 2 months)
Brody is seriously the happiest most content child. Everything makes him smile and he constantly is making himself laugh by the noises he makes to the things that he touches, tastes and sees.

(Brody at 4 months)
He has always loved to eat and especially loves to eat what mom and dad are having.

(Brody at 7 months)
Bath time is and always has been his favorite time of day, he screams with excitement the moment we walk in the bathroom. I can hardly get his clothes off before he is climbing over the edge of the tub to get in and splash with his toys.
(Brody at 8 months)
Brody loves to read. I often find him in his room sitting with a few books that he has pulled off his shelf. He love the pictures and turning the pages all by himself. He cracks up at his books that make sounds. He gets so excited to turn to the next page to hear what other sound is coming.
(Brody at 12 months)
Brody has been walking now for a few weeks, he is so proud of himself and wants to walk everywhere we go. He claps and is so excited for himself while he walks around the house.
I can't believe how fast 1 year went by, I feel like he should still be my little baby. He is such a big boy and this year has been such a joy for us to watch him grow and see all the new things that he learns everyday. I am excited to see all the many more happy years of growing and learning.
