This is true happiness!
Feeling the grass on her toes and tulips on her fingers. I love watching her experience new things.
It seems hard to get a picture these days when her fingers aren't in her mouth.
These were my favorite ones. The color was amazing!
Again amazing color
Thank you Heavenly Father for blessing us with such beauty. It is just another testament that he loves us, when you look and see the beauty he has surrounded us with. When we feel all alone in our trials just look around and see what he has given us to make our lives full and happy and you will know you are loved.
Sitting upright in her bumbo is another great trick. Before she would sit upright for just a few minutes before falling forward, now she can sit and play with toys the whole time. She is growing too fast I feel like I can't keep up on the all the new things she is doing.
Doesn't she just look so interested in the book we are reading.
This last weekend Justin had to go to Reno with a couple of our younger teams for a volleyball tournament. Since they were taking a bus we decided to pack up everyone and go on a little vacation. Some people may think that we are nuts taking our 4 month old on a nine hour bus ride with 20 15 year old girl. Well I thought we were too as we got started but we just went with it. And if i wasn't convinced that we have the best baby ever I am now!!!!! She is amazing she was awake most of the time there and got fussy only once when we went up hill and her ears were popping. She just smiled and hung out for the whole nine hours. When we got to Reno we checked into the hotel and let Davis kick around for a little while before we went to practice. Again she just let us take her all over and never made a fuss. She let everyone hold her and get in her face. We just laid a mattress on the floor and she slept her regular 12 hours. And did I mention that she was still able to take her naps and sleep in the convention center with 300 screaming teenage girls. Our teams did really really well, they finished 5th and 13th in the whole tournament. Not to mention that they both stared ranked in the 60's out of 70 teams. So I would say that they exceeded expectations. It was so fun to watch them win some good matches, some that were really close nail biters. It was also fun to get to know the mom's of the girls better too. It was fun to hear all there funny stories about raising kids and also get some great advice from woman who have been in my shoes before. On the second day most of the mom, Justin and I went to the Atlantis for sushi. I love sushi and I couldn't go last year because I was pregnant so I was so excited to go. Now I have to say the ride home was even easier than the ride there we left Reno at about 4pm. We kept Davis awake for a couple hours then did her routine minus bath time fun time, and then she went to sleep for the rest of the way home. We watched chick flicks all the way there and home. (oh except for the last part of the drive when everyone was asleep and Justin put on cool runnings) "How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, Twilight, 13 Going On 30, Step It Up, Altogether it was a great weekend full of good food, funny stories, grumpy bus driver, and great company. I feel so blessed to have such a great daughter that allows us to do things like this. I love her so much!!!
Sleeping on the bus
This girl can sleep anywhere and in any position. When she is tired it doesn't matter where she is she sleeps.
He can try but she will never drink that Satan juice.
Napping in dads arms in the loud gym
Again sleeping in Dad's arms on the bus
Justin can always get her to smile.
Sitting in her bumbo watch mom and aunt Danielle making sugar cookies.
She loves being able to see what's going on so she loves her bumbo. She can sit on the counter and watch me cook. That way too I can talk to her while I am cooking.
After our stake conference mishap she fell back asleep pretty fast.
Another one of Davis in her Easter dress.
Out to lunch at the cheesecake Factory. I didn't get to eat much of my lunch because the lady wanted to be held.
