New cowgirl boots! Just in time for fall! 

I won’t lie, I am insanely jealous of Kennedy’s. Why can’t adult sizes be as cheap as the kid sizes?! I want some so bad!!! Santa??

Brynlie picked hers out. I think she’s got a decent sense of fashion. This girl and her boots. 

This picture really pulls on my heartstrings. Not just because it’s tender, but because I know my dad can’t see him and that makes me cry. 

But Logan can see Papa and I think they had a bonding moment. 

And he’s too adorable for words!

I am so in love with him, but I will love him more when he starts sleeping through the night. I can’t remember the last time I got more than 4 hours of sleep at a time. Either he’s up, or I am and I’ve been struggling to fall back asleep lately. It’s so frustrating!!! I mean, he’s rarely just awake at night. He’s pretty good at just eating and falling back asleep. Last week he was going from an 8pm feeding to 4:30 or 5am and I was so hopeful that we were almost through the worst of it. But then the night Cory got off and agreed to get up with him (so I could sleep all night) he started getting up twice again. And has since. I know he’s still little, and we’ll get there. I’m just really tired. And tired of being tired. Oh... babies. 

So... running. Remember that one time I was a runner? Haha I decided to go for my first run this week since it has officially been 6 weeks since I had Logan. 

It. Was. Awful. 

I went two miles, but I walked a lot. I blame part of that on the weather though. It was super windy that day and the first mile was right into the wind and uphill. But the second mile wasn’t much better because then things started hurting. Like, everywhere. 

I have zero hip flexor/glute/core strength right now which is pretty essential for good running form and performance. So it sucked. I have my work cut out for me. And I can’t start working my abs at the gym for another 5 weeks, so I’ll just have to keep running small amounts and strengthening the other areas until I am able to do everything again. 

I didn’t expect to just go out and do awesome, but I was sad by how much everything hurt. But it will get better with time. And training. 

Can we talk about this amazing fall weather? And the leaves!! Oh my gosh, THE LEAVES!!! 

I don’t think I have ever seen the colors this vivid and bright. It’s been amazing!! I keep staring at the mountains and loving it so much it almost makes my heart hurt. Gosh, I love fall. 

Ok one more. I can’t get enough of them. 

We also went and got our pumpkins for the season. We found some pretty big ones this year. 

We had to kick the girls out of riding in the wheel barrow pretty quickly cause we couldn’t fit everyone. 

The girls picked out their own and B was pretty particular. 

And Daddy and Kennedy found the perfect pumpkin for Baby Logan; nice and wrinkly....???

But Kennedy really, really wanted this one. 

Aunt Hillary came with us today which was a lot of fun! She hasn’t been ready to go back to work yet so she’s spent the week with family and friends. 

Sometimes I still stop and can’t believe we’re a family of 5. How did I get old enough to have 3 kids?! 

But this family is everything to me right now. And always. 

I’ve been thinking a lot lately since the Las Vegas shooting about who/what really matters. Hillary was telling me all the people who tried to get ahold of her to make sure she was ok. As I listened I started to wonder if I had been in her shoes, who would have wondered if I was ok. That seems like a selfish thought, but it just made me appreciate my family and friends and the ones who I know would be there. I’m grateful Hillary has such a huge support system. And I’m grateful for my support system and the great people in my life. Life is short and I’m constantly forgetting that and getting caught up in things that don’t matter. It shouldn’t take a tragic event to help me remember that, but I’m strangely grateful for anything that does remind me to appreciate the blessings in my life. 

See you soon!
