easter and logandale

the saturday before easter we had our annual easter egg hunt in wallsburg. it was so fun to have a little one to participate in the hunt this year! it was snowing and freezing but we still had a bbq, shot guns and looked for eggs. easter sunday we dressed up Q in her new dress for church and gave her her easter basket. brady and i dont really do much for each other on holidays like this so i had a lot of fun putting a basket together for Q. later that night we had another bbq at drapers house. we have great family and we love getting together!on the 7th of may Makenzie got baptized so we all headed down to logandale nevada for the weekend. we got to watch Makenzie, Tyson and Sierra do their may day dances at their school. the weather was so nice and it was really fun to see them dance in person instead of on the video camera. they did great! sorry i didnt get a picture of Makenzie or Tysons outfits! after Makenzies baptism we all went swimming. it was alot of fun and we had another great weekend with the draper family. congrats on the decision to get baptized Makenzie, we are proud of you!

month 8


you have become very independant. its fun to see you being so grown up but its kindof been a challenge. the biggest change is that you have refused to eat baby food. if it is pureed or on a spoon you want nothing to do with it. you clench your lips shut and turn your head in every direction to avoid the spoon. its kindof funny but really frustrating because you refuse to eat and i worry that you are hungry. after a little while i finally figured out that you will eat anything i give if i cut it up in little pieces and put it on your tray and let you feed yourself. you love to eat and dont seem to be too picky. you will eat and eat as long as i put food in front of you and until i take you out of your chair. if you want something that brady and i are eating you smack and lick your lips until we give you some. its really cute. you still dont crawl which is nice because we havent had to baby proof the house yet. you can roll and scoot around the room but you dont get far. you are pretty content to sit on the floor and play with anything that i set in front of you. you are still mellow and easy going but you also know what you want and when you want it and sqeal or giggle to let us know.
you are very much becoming a mommys girl and are starting to get shy in front of other people. you turn your head into my shoulder and smile when someone comes up and says hi to you. i kind of like that you cling to me because it makes me feel loved! but hopefully it doesnt last because i dont want you to be shy. you are still a doll and such an easy baby. you have molded into our life so easily and we still feel so lucky to have you. our lives would be empty without you. love you lots.
