Amelia's Blessing Day

While we were in Moab for Labor Day, we had Amelia blessed in my parent's ward. It was wonderful to have most of my Uncles, most of her's (adopted and related), and both of her Grandpas there to participate in the blessing. James gave her a beautiful blessing that brought tears to my eyes. It was such a sweet day for such a sweet girl.

The pictures of just her were taken a few weeks after her blessing because we got so busy the day of her blessing that we weren't able to get any pictures. And yes, I did make the dress. I'm glad I got it done before she was born because since her birth, I haven't had much time to knit!

3 months!

Amelia is now 3 whole months old!! She now weighs almost 11 pounds. Almost double her birth weight in three short months. Goes to show that's she's a really good eater.

Amelia loves her Daddy and smiles whenever she sees him. She can be getting grumpy, but when Daddy walks by and smiles at her, she can't help but smile back.

This month she's learned to laugh when she's tickled. It's the sweetest belly laugh I've ever heard. The only problem is that she won't laugh when we're Skyping with Grammy and Poppy. I'm beginning to learn that she'll do things when she wants and not necessarily when Mommy wants her to. She's also starting to learn how to use her hands more and will grab at toys and Mommy's nose. She's becoming more and more alert every day and you can just see her learning new things every day.

The pictures that were left out. . .

When I posted all the pictures of the cabin, I left out a few. Nicole called me and wanted to know why I hadn't posted ANY pictures of her kids. Well, to make up for it, here's a whole post of Nicole's adorable family.

Notice that the little one actually fell asleep on a four-wheeler ride...

I think he was being Iron Man here, even though his shirt says he's Thomas.
