sign language

I never thought I would teach my kids sign language but when Brooklyn started babbling I wanted her to communicate a little more so I wanted her to learn how to say please and more at least so. I would do the signs and she would just look at me and then one day she caught on so quick. She knows please, more, baby, all done, milk, and thank you. I absolutely love that she can communicate to me. I was trying to get video of her doing it and having her do everything else she knows but for some reason whenever she sees a camera she gets shy and just wants to grab it.. So here is a little video of her doing some sign language :)

she also folds her arms, knows where her hair, eyes, nose, and mouth is. can say hi, bye, mom, dada, yucky, poopy, hot, yum, dog, ball, nigh nigh, thank you and she can count to three.. she says un, two, WEEE!! haha its so cute. she knows some more but i can't remember all of them.. I know i have already said that she can do this but its mosty so i remember how old she was and stuff lol. i love this girl. isn't she beautiful.?

A Great Day

Yesterday was a Great Day! One of my really good friend's Courtney was sealed to her husband and their two kids in the St George Temple. It was a beautiful day. It was so nice for ammon and i to go do a session and to a sealing together. With a baby its really hard to go to the temple as much as we would like so we really enjoyed having the opportunity to go. I haven't done a session in a while so i was really nervous to do it by myself. We were running late and i thought that we were to miss it so i was super stressed out. But of course we made it and the second we walked into the temple we were calm and just excited to see them go through the temple and be sealed together.

They had a very big group go with them and it was just neat to see all the friends and family that were there to support them. It was an emotional day for their family and everyone was so happy. My favorite part is when we all are in the Celestial Room waiting for them to come in together. It reminded me of my experience of going through the temple for the first time. Ammon took me through and my family was there waiting for me. I imagine that it will be alot like that.

The sealing was very special. He did a wonderful job and when they brought the kids in-everyone got emotional. They looked so beautiful and it was such an amazing day. I'm so grateful that I know about the promises and blessings that you get when you go through the temple. I love going to sealings because it reminds me of my wedding day and what ammon and i promised each other. It's such an amazing and wonderful experience to know that we will be together for eternity. Congratulations Courtney, Steve, Brooklyn, and Bridger. We love you!
