Ali was blessed on May 2nd. The day could not have gone better. She was awake and peaceful during her blessing, and Josh did a great job. We had my parents, Merle, Christie (Jeff), Cody (Steph), and Connie (Colby) all there from my family, and Josh's parents, Grandma Alice, Christina (Ross), and Gabe from Josh's family. We had a delicious brunch of crepes, cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit and veggies after sacrament meeting. She looked beautiful in her dress. I am hoping someone has a better picture than this of our family, but this will have to due for now.
I had pictures taken of her this week. She is two months old. I just love her. (It was hard to pick just a few pictures to post.)
She officially smiles so sweetly. On her blessing day she gave some great grins. She is also waking up. She wants me to hold her more often than I have time for so today I ordered her a great new mobile. Hopefully it will provide some good entertainment for her and keep her out of reach of her loving brother Andy. He can't get enough of her. He literally wants to eat her. He has been known to bite her head and to lick her. I have to closely supervise.
