Cute Girl...

I figured since I did a post on just Olivia yesterday that I better do one just of Sophie today. Sophie is so much fun and we just love having her in our family. She is four and a half months now, and on her fourth month doctors appt. she weighed 12lbs 10oz which is in the 22 percentile, and she was 23 inches long. Her hair will get really curly if it gets wet or if she is at all sweaty it will just kink up on the sides. We still don't know what color her eyes are going to turn yet, they are a dark grey at the moment. Olivia's eyes were dark grey until about 7months and then they turned to brown, so we'll see. Sophie is just such a cute little thing. She has the cutest laugh and always so smiley. She is still our little snuggle bug and we just love her to pieces.

Hip Hip Hooray!

This little girl I can honestly say is potty trained. For the past three Sundays Olivia has gone to church in panties and even tells her nursery leaders when she needs to go to potty. The only time she wears a diaper is at night when she goes to bed. I'm so proud of her and so excited. It is so nice to not have to worry about that.

couple of new post below. ENJOY!

Key West 2009!

So the day after Sophie's blessing me and the girls tagged along with my parents and my lil sis to go see my adorable niece Betty and her parents. We had a great time, it was supper hot so we stayed inside most of the time and played the Wii fit, which I love, I want one bad! Emma and Steve were supper gracious and let us all stay with them, big thanks to them, especially Emma who has been feeling a little under the weather. Don't worry she will be all cured of it sometime in March. Yup another niece(we hope) or nephew is making their way to the Johns family. I'm supper excited to see what they will have. I had tons of fun playing with Betty, she is soooo cute, but boy oh boy does Livi now how to make her mad. Poor Livi lets just say that she had some nice teeth marks to bring home to show her daddy. Damon had to stay in Utah and look after the fort, and go to school and make some money. The sad thing is that was probably our last visit to Key West, Steve and Emma and Betty will be moving up too Virginia in November for Steve's work. But we are pretty stoked for them to move up there because then they are just 3 hours away from NYC, so mine and Damon's plan is we'll go visit them and then leave the kids with them for a weekend and go have some fun in NYC<>

Sophie's Blessing Day...

On August 25th we were able to Sophie's blessing at our house. It was a wonderful occasion and we had many friends come and see this little angel. Sophie was just that an angel, she loves to be held, so she is a happy girl as long as someone is holding her. Damon gave her a wonderful name and blessing, where she was told that she has many wonderful qualities. She is such a special spirit and we feel so blessed to have her in our family.

So this is Nathan and Phyllis Tanner. Nathan was a Mission President for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in England, him and his wife Phyllis became very good friends with my parents almost like family so when I born they asked him to be in my blessing circle. He also was the Sealer who married Damon and I. So we knew that now that we live in Utah that we had to ask if he would be in the circle for Sophie's blessing too. We were so excited and felt very blessed for all of the wonderful people who came to help us celebrate. It was a great gathering.

Sophie with Grandad. She looked so cute in her dress. Damon's mom had made it for Olivia but I'm going to use it for every girl I have and then hopefully they will use it for their kids.
