3 Months

My baby is 3 months old today!
She is still as smiley as ever.  Russell calls her Smiles.
She sleeps through the night, waking up around 5:30 to eat, then sleeps for 2-3 more hours.
She went to her first rodeo last weekend and did great.
She was awake for most of the time but fell asleep for the fireworks.
She has rolled over from back to front once and front to back 6 times.
She can hold her head up really well.
Everything she grabs on to goes right in her mouth.
She puts weight on her legs when I stand her up.
She slept all night in her crib for the first time last night.
Her big huge grins will melt your heart.
She laughed for the first time for her Uncle Trevor.
She loves to reach for her hanging toys.
She had her first day at the river with Great Grandma, Aunt Amy, Uncle Trevor, and her cousin Andie.
She still fits into some of her newborn clothes.  0-3 month clothes fit and she is just starting to wear 3 month outfits.  3-6 month clothes are still pretty big.
She is my Sunshine, Darling, Princess, Pretty, Angel, and Beautiful Girl.
We love this girl more everyday.

Happy Father's Day

Russell is the best daddy!
He was smitten from day one (as seen here.)
and has over 1,000 pictures on his phone to prove it.

Here are some pictures that I took.
At the hospital.
On those first nights, he was the only one who could soothe her cries.
So little.
In their favorite spot.
(The rocking chair in the nursery.)
Having a snooze.

Father's Day

This is an amazing man.  He helps feed and change her (even the poopy diapers),
he helps out around the house when he can see I am getting overwhelmed,
and he'll even quit his video game just for Keladry cuddles.
Kel loves her dad and always has a special smile for him when he gets home from work.
I don't know how we got so lucky!
Happy Father's Day Russell,
We love you!

Blessing Day

What a special day.
Keladry was blessed by her daddy on
June 3, 2012
in our home ward, The Old Mill Ward.
She was blessed in the dress and moccasins that I wore on my blessing day.
Russ was joined in the circle by
Grandpa Howard
Grandpa Sorenson
Uncle Jesse
Uncle Gary
Uncle Phil
Uncle Remington
Uncle Randy
Uncle Don
Uncle Ron
Uncle Nelson
Cousin Josh
Cousin Jared
Cousin Jon
Jake Riley
Bishop Dow
(So many!)

Kel was such a happy girl that morning and was talking and kicking so much that I couldn't tie her shoes without help from daddy.
She was so quiet during her blessing and spent the rest of Sacrament Meeting being held by her
Aunt Amy, Aunt Lynn, and Great Grandma Howard.
Russ and I both bore our testimonies as well as Grandpa Howard, Cousin JD, and Cousin Elease.
While I was speaking, Amy held Kel up so I could see her.  I swear she was looking right at me.  It was very touching.

After the meeting we went to my mom and dad's house for yummy food. 
Kel spent the day being passed from person to person.

Keladry Hope is so blessed to have so many people who love her.
Thanks to all those who drove to Heber to spend this special day with us.
