Blessing Day

We blessed Emery at 1 week old. Logan had to leave us and go back to school the following Saturday, so it really was the only time for us to do it.

Hanging out with dad at 1 week old.

It was a pretty and special blessing. Everyone came but most people had to leave right after the blessing so we opted to just take a pic of our little family after sacrament meeting. We thought it would be fun to put her in a bonnet for her blessing because it was pioneer day.

Starting to get fussy and hungry!

Our little fuzzy wuzzy girl!

We didn't get many pictures of just Emery so I decided to take more pictures in her blessing outfit a little later. Making her usual scowl! I swear she's making this face in all of her pictures!

And poor Logan's birthday got a little lost this year in all the excitement of Emery birth and blessing. Sunday night we did have a little party for him which included icecream, texas sheet cake (his favorite), presents, and videos from his childhood.... the New Kids On The Block dance routine is by far the favorite! We love you Logan! Happy Birthday to the best guy around!

Pioneer Day Celebration

We headed out to the Stake Pioneer Day celebration on July 23. Emery was 6 days old. It's hard just hanging around home when you have another kid that just wants to get out of the house and play. It also happened to be Logans 29th Birthday! I'm almost married to a 30 year old!! How did that happen! We got to the party and Afton said "Is this dada's birthday party?" I told her yes. She thought it was pretty cool!

It was quite the party. We were in Heaven! They had all our favorite things: Homemade lemonade, cotton candy, snowcone, kettle corn. As you can see Afton was pretty excited for all the treats and ate way to much sugar!

Pretty sticky!

After the pioneer day/ dada birthday party, we headed to the Christensens to do some swimming and hang out. They treated us to some pizza and ribs.

Jack and Emery. They are 6 weeks apart.

After all the fun we headed home. We heard a cry from Emery and headed in to see what was up. Somehow these stickers had ended up on her face... hmmm. I guess Afton thinks pretty highly of her. (Awesome!)


Logan ditched us and headed to San Fran with the boys for the day to see a Giants game.

4 days old

Afton loved holding her little sister. She would run in first thing in the morning and ask, "Can I hold her!? I want to hold her!" That was until Emery pooped while Afton was holding her and then she said, "She stinks! Get her off me!"

First bath at home

First Trip to the Park

At 3 days old we took Emery to her first Dr. appt and then headed to the park so Afton could get a little attention from her parents who were missing for a couple days in the hospital. She sure loves spending time with her dada... such a daddy's girl. I can see why!

3 days old

She still had jaundice and so we headed to the hospital to get a billi count blood test done... one of many! We felt so bad for her bruised and cut up little heals!

Sleeping the afternoon away at the park

A little static! ha ha
