Blake's Blessing

Grandma and Grandpa Crosland with a crying Blake. She was actually great the entire day until we started taking pictures... then she was just hungry.

Aunt Carli (my brother Tyler's wife) (who is expecting a little girl in February)

Grandma and Grandpa Larsen

This is the first time Kevin held Blake.. .so we had to document it. He is scared to hold babies when they are this small.

And our beautiful baby girl, Blake Marie Larsen.

Our little pumpkin... She did not like the hat!

Blake's First Ride

Well, I guess that Luke and I are starting her early... soon we will have her on skis! The week before Halloween it was like 70 degrees, so Luke took a day off and the three of us went to the farm. Blake slept in her stroller while Luke and I rode, and then we took some fun pictures of her first day with Kona and Isaac. Thought you would like to see them, especially my brother Ben!

Kona was very interested in Blake, I had to keep moving her back over to the hitching post to unsaddle because she wanted to smell Blake. It made me a little nervous, so I am just standing right outside the picture holding Kona's reins.

All of Luke's Ladies

First time that Kona met Blake... Kona seems much more concerned than Blake was. She just slept right through it.

Blake's very first ride ever with her dad. This is Isaac and will soon be Blake's very own horse. I guess we will have to get Luke another one.

Blake's first time in the saddle, sort of.

Blake's New Pictures!

Blake had some new pictures taken by a woman in our ward. They are so cute I thought I would share... and because everyone keeps requesting more pictures. Apparently being a mom is taking all of my time...

Our little hula girl...

She was so alert the entire time... No sleeping baby pictures in our family...
In fact, we have very few times where we have a sleeping baby!
