Baby’s Name

Her name is Cumorah. She is named after the Hill Cumorah in Palmyra, NY. The reason why this hill is significant to the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that it is the place where The Book of Mormon was discovered. The Book of Mormon is a history that tells of a family from Jerusalem who came to the Americas and their struggles. The book tells how this family overcame hard times by following the teachings of Jesus Christ. We read this book to help us get closer to God and to overcome our own struggles.

Newborn Photography

I wanted to practice sleepy baby pictures but this girl was born almost 2 weeks late. She acted like a 2 week old by the time she arrived. She is bright-eyed and ready to conquer the world! 😀📸

Back-to-School!

I woke up early to make cinnamon rolls to celebrate the first day of school but they were too excited and didn’t eat much of it. I hope they won’t be starving today but at least they drank their milk! Micah = 3rd Grade. Quentin = 1st Grade. Emily = A wannabee kindergartener but she’s only 3 years old. She spent 10 minutes crying at the bus stop after all the kids got on and left. She got her backpack and insisted I pack her a lunch. Poor girl, she would have snuck on the bus if I let her.

4th Child Pretending to be Only Child

I am pretending to only have 1 child today while the older kids are at their cousin’s house and daddy is at his interview. Time goes by a lot slower with just 1 kid because he needs to be entertained all the time. I have gotten a lot of “Is this your first?” 😂 and “He is so cute!” Jakey doesn’t get this much attention when all his siblings are around. I usually just get “Wow, your hands are full!” or “Are these all yours?” 😂 I wonder what people would say if I told them he’s the 4th child?!

Cute Santa

We had a cute professional Santa come to our Christmas party so I had to take advantage of the moment to take some cute pictures of my kids!

Santa with the littlest one:

Emily didn’t care for Santa at all! She insisted on wearing her favorite Halloween skirt. She was born in October so I guess she must like Halloween more than Christmas?
