It is official...Adalynn was blessed last Sunday. Jared kept telling me he was going to change her name during the blessing. But we all know Jared is much too afraid of me to do that.
We had a lot of family come, which meant a lot to us. Adalynn met the rest of Jared's family and my little sister. Devin had a blast having so many people around. Everyone is gone now (except Jared's dad) so we are getting back into the swing of things. Can you beleive it is October?

After a long 2 years Devin and his manny reunite.
Meeting Grandpa C
Adalynn with her extremely attractive Uncle. Blessing Day. *Note to self---time to hit the gym.
The cousins--we missed you Alexia

I realized after looking at all my pictures I didn't even take one of just Adalynn, so I put her back in her dress (which I am sure she was thrilled about) and took some today.
Oh, and thank you so much mom for the blessing dress. I was seriously stressing out about getting the dress and my sweet mom found one in Mesa.

Yearbook Yourself

Oh wow. This seriously had me entertained for ever!! I just about peed my pants playing around with pictures (hey--right after having a happens).

1970 JARED

1976 DEVIN
Oh gag me! If Devin ever grows his hair out I think I might puke or something
And I basically had wayyyy too much fun with myself.

1964--Is it weird that 1964 me looks pretty good?

1978--I'm pretty sure this was a black woman's body, but hey, I had to. Its not every day I get to have a fro.
Yes, yes I have had a few perms in my life. But they did not look THIS awesome!

2 months

I took Adalynn in for her 2 month check. Here are the stats
12 pounds 4 ounces (75% for Weight)
22.5 inches long (50% for Height)

She is doing great. She got 3 shots and they have made her one grumpy gal. I have been giving her Tylenol, but she has been sooooo fussy and just wants me to hold her all day long.

Get ready for a long post. I have been oohhhing and ahhhing over the pictures this photographer from Utah takes for months. Her name is Skye Johansen and she is amazing. So when we were in Utah we had her take Adalynn and Devin's pictures. I was worried that we weren't going to get any good ones because Adalynn was so fussy for like an hour and a half during our session. But I got the pictures today and there are so many cute ones. There are seriously over 100 pictures to choose from...I don't know how I am going to decided which ones to print because I love them all.

Just another Sunday

Ready for church. She is not so thrilled about the enormous bow on her head. To tell you the truth I was not a fan of the huge bow/flower that people put on their baby girls. Especially when the bow and or flower is bigger than the babies head. But it has grown on me a little--she looks a little more like a girl and a little less like an old man when she wears them.
This picture just made me laugh because she is winking at me.

Why I'm glad I never had an older brother...

I was in the kitchen doing dishes. And this is what Devin was up to...

Family Pics

This were taken a while ago by Jared's cousin. Devin's hair makes me laugh because it looks just like Lloyd's from Dumb and Dumber. Poor little guy has 2 callics right in the front, which makes for interesting hair...But he is still a cutie. It is hard to believe this was almost a year ago. We are going to have to get them taken again with Adalynn.
