They Grow Up Too Fast- Not Quite A Month Old

Today I tried to put an outfit on Reese that was pretty big on her the day we brought her home from the hospital. It didn't fit anymore. How in the world did she get to big so fast?


Reese and her cousin, Lillie. Lillie is about 6 months older than Reese. You can't tell very well from this picture, but when they were side-by-side, Lillie looked twice as big as Reese. Do they really grow that much in such a short time?

I don't know why she's so shy; I think that the dress is adorable. (It's also courtesy of a Gymboree gift card given to her by aunt Melissa- Thanks!)

Happy BYU football season! Due to the game, a lot of my mom's family was in town and we had a game-day party. That's when I got this great four-generation shot. Great-grandma Evelyn Christensen, Grandma Leah Faber, Mom Anna Heath and Baby Shareese Heath.

Our Bishop challenged us to get to the temple at least once per week. When we were very first married, this is a feat that we actually accomplished. Things have gotten a little more complicated since then....

Luckily, you can still visit the temple without spending an hour or two doing ordinances, so that's what we did, and we brought Reese along.

Reese obviously enjoyed the sweet spirit of the temple grounds, as evidenced by her peaceful expression.
Then again expressions don't say everything.
On Sunday we made it all the way up to Bountiful to attend the mission report of Reese's first cousin once removed, Justin Faber. He just came home from the Accra, Ghana mission. During his mission, he sent great emails with stories about eating dog (and keeping large portions of it in the freezer) catching Malaria multiple times, and sweet conversion and baptism stories.
Reese got passed around because she's so popular. Here she is with Great-grandma Faber.
And here's Buck, Justin's food storage.
