I have so much to write about I decided to do a couple of posts to get everything in. I'm not very experienced in the blogging area so I have to do mine as simple as possible. Sorry nothing fancy but at least I'm updating it, right? A lot has happend since the last time I posted, Ashlyn is growing like a weed and everyday brings something new. She is smiling a ton now. As soon as she wakes up that is the first thing she does is smile at me. Ashlyn is a big talker to, sometimes she will just sit there and carry on her own conversation I love to hear those little coos they make my heart melt. She also loves to suck on her hands, (I think I might have a thumb sucker : ( She always has one hand or the other in her mouth which makes me nervous because people are always touching her hands so I try to wipe them off as much as possible to keep her from getting sick. At her 2 month appointment she weighed 14.3 lbs and she was 24 inches long. Like I said she is growing fast!!!!!! I love her chubby cheeks, hands, legs, tummy, and i could go on and on. I am glad she is chubby to me that means she is healthy. She has had a lot of first recently, her first rodeo, peach days, road trip, and soon her first vacation. She also rolled over the first time by herself on sunday, well actually she rolled over at the Dr.s office. But she rolled over for the first time at our house sunday night. We were so excited I tried to get it on video but she wouldn't to it again. We are going to Disney land this weekend and staying a few days. I am really excited it will be so good to get away and have a little vacation. We are going with my work so we will have a few friends to hang out with.
Last week Ashlyn and I went up to my sister Natalie's and stayed a few days while Matt was in Chicago with his work. We had a great time. I'll admit I was a little nervous to drive that far with Ashlyn. That is the farthest she has ever been in a car and I was afraid to do it alone. But she slept most of the way up I only had to stop once to feed her. On the way home she slept the whole way. It was so nice to see my sister and her kids. They came to the blessing but had to leave right after so they didn't get to see her much. Unfortunately while I was up there I came down with a cold and I think Ashlyn got a little bit of one as well. I admire all of the single moms out there. It was hard to take care of her alone when I didn't feel good. My sister was a big help, but I came to appreciate all that Matt does around here. He is such a wonderful husband I don't know what I would do without him. Anyway that is the short version of what has happened the last little while.
I just put some fun pictures for everyone to see. The one with the curlers in her hair is my favorite. I was curious to see what her hair would look like after. It was ok but I think I need to spend a little more time putting the curlers in. lol

Blessing Day

Ashlyn was blessed on September 6th. Matt gave her the most wonderful blessing I have ever heard, he was a little nervous but you couldn't tell, he did such a great job. All of my family was able to make it to the blessing and most of Matt's. We really appreciate all of their love and support I don't know what we would do without our families. Aunt Paula and Aunt Vera were gracious enough to let us have the luncheon in their back yard. The day was beautiful and everything turned out so well. We want to thank everyone who came to support us and our new baby on her special day.
