Mae's First Halloween

If you are looking for a photographer in Utah I would highly suggest Paxel Pics Photography she does some wonderful work, always has props and her prices are amazing.

But back to halloween...

I usually don't like this holiday. Even as a kid I didn't like dressing up, I always just wanted to be me. I remember being teased for not dressing up some years. This year I had no intentions of dressing up and didn't have a costume for Mae either. But last minute I decided it would be really fun to dress up together. $3 and 30 min later I had kitty cat costume ready for Mae and I and I have to admit I kind of love how they turned out. Simple, cheap and cute!

When Mae first saw me as a cat she bawled her face off and screamed and screamed until thankfully Taylor came home and helped her realize I was indeed still her mother and not a scary cat. We went to my husbands work party and ate lots of food and had fun playing with Mae crawl around and enjoying family time together.

Here are some photos that Pax took of us.

10 Months

This little girl is getting so hard to catch on camera these days. As shown in the photos crawling away as fast as she can!

I cannot believe my baby girl is already 10 months which means she is almost 1 years old. How did this happen!?

Mae has started copying noises and sounds we make to her. It is so fun to watch this little person interact with us. She loves to use her hand to make "blurble burble" noises. 
She loves when we hide under blankets, she always squeals and claps her hands. Clapping her hands is also a new talent of hers.
She is going through a little phase where she actually likes to cuddle every so often, not a ton but there are moments and boy are they magical! 
She loves to give me kisses, big wet messy ones that last for an awkward amount of time and I love almost every second of them haha. 
She still loves shoes, baby shoes, dad's shoes, but especially leather shoes. 
She is getting so good at walking around holding onto chairs or furniture, sadly it won't be long until she's walking I'm sure.
She still loves to be swaddled when she sleeps!

She is still just the sweetest girl!
