New Valentine

We have a new Valentine on our hands!
This picture was taken on Valentine's Day. Not a happy post-vaccine baby. (Yes, I vaccinate my child.)

But our trip to Mesquite for my amazing little sister-in-law's soccer tournament seemed to cheer her up.

Hitting the road at 5:30 am.

Snow Canyon at sunset.

We visited Grandma and Papa Naegle after the trip.
 And Lilian met cousin Haley (well, my cousin, Lisa's, baby).

Big news of the week, Lilian took her first trip to the zoo!

Late Valentine

Call me creepy, but I've basically been obsessed with Robert Bennion since he moved in to my home ward when we were 12. Sure, I was probably a foot taller than him and twice his weight and going through the awkward teen years but I just hoped love would conquer all...awkwardness.
Nothing brings two hearts together like holding a bleeding pig head by the scruffy hairs after having just watched it be slaughtered. Mmm mmm.

When Robert moved in, my dad was the Young Men president and Eric Bell was a counselor. He and my dad starting taking the boys to The Ranch. They loved it so much that they starting going just for fun and my sister and I would tag along. That is where Robert and I began to be best friends.

The 4.5 hour drive was never long enough.
 Work was play.
 Play was a dream.

Dreams were Robert.

Sweet Dreams

Official Angel

Lilian is here!

She will be three months old tomorrow, Valentine's Day, but she just had her two month appointment this afternoon. She was given a certificate (as if that would make the shots feel better) saying she was an "Official Angel." Well I'd have to agree...
...most of the time.

When Lilian had her 2-week appointment she was 50th percentile for height, weight, and head size.

Today she measured 75th percentile for head size, 85th percentile for height, and 20th percentile for weight. She's definitely her daddy's daughter :) Health, happy, tall, and thin.

A lot has happened in the past three months and since I only have 40 minute intervals to get things done in the day I haven't blogged (obviously). I haven't found the time to write my experience with becoming a mother. It has been a dramatic change for me, as it is with every new mother, and I'm excited to share my experience...

...just not during this nap time.
