Happy Fall Y'all!

Last year, Evan and I had the most wonderful Fall photoshoot. He was 6 months old, and proudly posed with a bright yellow mum and baby pumpkin.
Two falls and a baby brother later, here are Bennett's pumpkin pictures. :-) I put him in the same shirt just for fun, I love re-creating pictures and seeing how alike or, as the case is, different they are. Bennett is seven and a half months here, and a bit smaller with more hair on top. You can't help but notice Evan's unmistakably adorable chipmunk cheeks, while Bennett has an almost perfectly round head. He has blue/green eyes in contrast to Evan's deep brown, and is much more of a camera hog than his big bro. I've commented on this before to friends and family, but I think it's hilarious to plainly see in pictures that Bennett is a cheeseball and loves the camera. Evan on the other hand is completely captivated by every other thing going on around him, and loves to look in all directions but the flash. Of course, I would have liked to get one of them together, and did give it an honest try. Let's just say, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. And well, awry it went.
Happy Fall y'all! I hear a bag of candy corn calling my name...

Bennett at 7 months

Oh B bear, where to start? For 3 days you have been 7 months old. I can hardly forget each month when the 14th rolls around that you, my sweet Valentine, are one whole month older.

No teethe, brown hair turning blonde, blue green deep sea eyes, food lover, sitter upper-seven months. You are napping now and have been for an hour and 15 minutes, which is quite a treat considering you are not the most dependable sleeper. Thankfully, we've fallen comfortably into two solid naps with a short snooze towards the end of the day. Because you are my #2, a "schedule" wrapped in quotes has been harder to come by. And so, I'm swimming in this extra long nap of yours and enjoying it to the fullest-with blogging and a vanilla coke that is. :-)

Most of the time, you fill our home with the sweetest, wide open mouth grins. Except for yesterday, when you acted quite like dinosaur for most of the afternoon haha! I'm happy to give you a pass for teething, and all the more grateful for your healthy, happy self. I can't imagine what we'd do without you, or how our time was spent before you. Truly, you are the most adorable baby I have the joy to lay eyes on every day.

Here are some pictures of you at the beach and in the bath, because, if I forgot to mention, you are a water baby all the way!
