On February 14th, Amilee was blessed by Samuel. My nephew Daniel Aedo and my niece Abby Hood were also blessed. The blessings happened here at home all together and the whole family was here. It was a wonderful experience!!
What a blessed day!!! it was great to see everyone and have the baby cousins together to be given a name and a blessing!! Samuel was really excited to give his daughter a blessing from the Lord.
The rest of February was just school and work for Samuel. Not too much going on. That keeps Samuel pretty busy and I am pretty busy with Amilee.
In march, it was school and work everyday again. But our friends from Nashville, Scarlet and Chris, came to visit Utah and we were able to spend some time with them. They have a little baby also, named Grayson. He is one day older than Amilee, but he is so much bigger than her. He was a cutie and it was so good to see them. We hadn't seen them since their wedding in Dec 08. So it was good! Amilee started discovering her voice this month and started babbling so loud. It was so cute. She talks all day every day and smiles so much.
She is such a happy and smiley baby. April marked conference weekend and Easter. We went up to my mom and dad's for the weekend. The boys were able to attend the Priesthood session in SLC Saturday night. They had a really good time. Sunday, we watched conference and celebrated Easter. Amilee got some new toys and some clothes and we got some money and a subway gift card. Yum!! We also celebrated my little brother, Parker's birthday. He turned 15. It was a really nice weekend!!
Today I took Amilee to the doctor because it was her 4 month check up appointment. She is doing so good!! She also is starting to roll over. It's fun!! She eats rice cereal and does really well with it and we will be introducing new solids to her next month. I am super excited for that, but not for the stinky diapers. Wednesday is Samuel's last day of school for the semester and he is so happy about that. This semester was hard, but good!!
Last Thursday we had a really neat opportunity. Samuel and I and my brother Chris, along with a few other students from the Business College had the opportunity to meet with Sister Dalton, the general YW president and her counselors. We sang the business college school song to her for her birthday and then we were able to be taught by her. It was so awesome. It is cool to hear her speak in conference, but this was different because she was speaking directly to us and tailored her remarks to us, rather than the whole church. It was great!!!
Samuel's mom is coming to visit this weekend for a wedding and we are really excited about that!!!
Next month, May, I will be going back to school. I am super excited to get back into the swing of things!! But that's about it for us!! Lots of love!!
