Eli's Blessing Day

Today Justin gave Eli a beautiful name and blessing. Eli was an angel through the whole thing. He even slept all through church. We wanted to take pictures when we got home but Eli was still sleeping. For all those who have a new baby, know that rule number one is, never wake a sleeping baby...so we took a couple with him in his car seat...and then some later! This evening we had some friends over for Justin's famous brownies and ice cream. It was a great day. By the way, Eli slept 6 hours last night without waking up. I am so proud of him!

Ashley this is for you. Here are the pumpkins I carved with my little helper, Ava. Super simple and easy! I poked holes in the pumpkin with a apple corer and then poked holes in Zucchini to filled the pumpkin in. I used a clay carving tool to make the flowers on the other pumpkin. I also found white pumpkins at Walmart (I didn't know they existed) it would be really cute with dots. I'm excited to carve it, maybe for FHE. I love this season, it is my favorite! It always gives me a happy feeling when I burn my autumn wreath candle and think of the wonderful holidays coming up.

This year we are putting Ava in dance. She is so excited. I was a little worried if she was ready or not. But when I took her she listened the whole time and did a great job. I only time she left was went she was telling me to watch her. We took this pictures just before we left.

Ava looks like this in most of her pictures because is yelling "CHEESE" as loud as she can. We are working on her smile. :) This is Ava's first day of Preschool and she is so excited to go. All of her little friends are in her class. She goes every Tuesday and Thursday for a couple hours and brings home fun things we get to hang on our fridge. When Justin comes home from school she runs to the fridge to show him what she made at school.
Ava is always giving her little brother hugs and kisses. She goes around telling everyone she has a little brother named Eli. She is so proud to be his big sister. Here is our little guy 5 weeks old. He has started going to bed around a 8 or 9 which is great, I love going to bed early. He is definitly his dads son, people are always telling me how much he looks like Justin!

Eli 1 Month!

Eli is now 5 weeks old and growing so fast! We love hime so much. It is truely amazing how our family feels more complete with him here. Ava loves giving him a lot of hugs, kisses and loves. We are trying to teach her to only do that when he is a wake so he can get the sleep he needs. She loves her little brother. We got his pictures taken a week ago and they turned out so cute!! I thought I would post a few of my favorites. He weighed 11lbs at 1 month. We love our little guy!
