3 months!

Today brooklyn is 3 months old!!!!!! So crazy! This picture was taken on Sunday right before church. She is so cute and so happy. if she isn't smiling she's most likely asleep or eating. She is such a joy and blessing in our lives and we love her so much. I can't believe how fast the time goes and how fast she grows. She is holding her own bottle and sits up really good-not quite by herself but she is so strong and stands up with us only holding onto one hand. She is sleeping 6-7 hours straight at night wakes up eats and goes back to bed for 3 hours.. I LOVE IT!!!! I bought a little doorway jumper for her that should be here in a couple weeks which will be great to have because she is always wanting to sit up or stand up so i can put her in that while i do housework or something. I can not even imagine life without her. You think you love someone so much but once you have a baby of your own you have this love so strong for someone who all they do is cry poop and eat and its crazy but I would do anything for her and I just stare at her all the time and she just makes me so incredibly happy and I get emotional sometimes thinking how much she blesses me and ammon and the sweet spirit she brings into our home. She has brought us closer together and we want the best for her. Being married is amazing but having a family is the most rewarding thing ever.

So I guess i'm just terrible with computers because i've been trying to get our wedding video saved to the computer so I can put it on facebook and this blog and I could never figure it out.. Somehow I was able to put it on youtube.. and put a link on this blog.. I have no idea how i did that.. and its still not saved to the computer but I absolutely love our wedding video its beautiful and ammon and I love to watch it together to remind us of the best day we've ever experienced.. Its crazy to watch and be see how much has changed in one year! but anyways! you should watch our growing up video and the short clip of us at the temple... its on the right under video bar. I couldn't figure out how to do the other parts of the reception and stuff.. so i apologize. ENJOY :)

baby blessing

This week has been absolutely fantastic. On Sat was the Iron County Fair and we all went and rode on the carnival rides, ate funnel cakes, and alot of yummy food. it was a blast. we made my parents go on a ride and now i regret it. my mom and dad got really sick. especially my mom. she had to go lay down and they ended up leaving really early because she was so nauseous. :( Emily and spencer loved all the rides and so did all of ammon's family. it was alot of fun to all be there together. But the highlight of the week was today at brooklyns blessing. we had alot of friends and family that came to support her and we are so greatful for them. We had great grandparents and her great great grandpa. We were able to take a 5 generation picture-how cool is that?

Ammon did such a good job doing the blessing and the testimony meeting after was beautiful and the spirit was so strong. I was so greatful for my friends that came down from orem. Heather, Talia, Jessa, and Vanessa. They are amazing girls and I love them so much. They are all wonderful examples to me and they are just the best friends I could ever ask for. After the blessing we were able to go to the park and have a really nice luncheon. The food was amazing and everyone had a great time! It was so much fun but i was exhausted after. I love when friends and family come to visit but its so nice to just go home with our little family and relax.

Brooklyn is getting so big. She had her 2 month checkup last week. She now weighs almost 12 pounds! She is getting so strong too-holding her head up really straight and if you hold her hands she stands up. She's getting control of her hands and its hilarious to watch her put her fist up and just stare at it. She concentrates so hard to try to move it but doesn't quite get how too.. She's smiling and talking all day long and sleeping alot better during the night. She still loves baths and falls asleep almost every time. She'sstill a daddy's girl by far and Ammon is the best dad in the world. Brooklyn had to get shots last week and I was not excited for it. She was so happy at the doctors and smiling and then all of a sudden started screaming. It broke my heart. but once ammon picked her up she calmed right down. We gave her some grape flavored tylenol when we got home and she really enjoyed that! :) She is such a blessing in our lives and brings such a sweet spirit in our home. She has brought Ammon and I closer together and I love her more then she will ever know.
