2 months!

This has been such a busy week! My mom has been here this whole week, and it has been great to have her, we did alot of shopping, getting ready for the babies blessing, and playing with the baby!

My mom made Brynne's blessing dress out of my wedding dress...I felt like I was running a sweat shop, having her sew on vacation, but the dress turned out gorgeous, and I'm not even a little sad about the wedding dress!

Brynne trying on the bodice

Kenny and I planned a 50th suprise party for my parents.....oh what a ordeal! It was hard to keep it a secret and get things planned since my mom was at my house all week! My dad turned 50 last week and my mom will turn 50 the begining of April. Anyways we got decorations, made a pinata and we found a old walker at DI to be the bat to hit it with, bought birthday presents, got a cake, aranged to have it at my uncles house, invited my parents old friends from high school and college that were in Utah...all under the radar! It was fun, but alot of work!

Clara was soo excited for the "Panata"! So exciting! Clara also found her old baby braclet from when she was a baby earlier in the week and gave it to Brynne, so sweet!

It took awhile for my youngest brother to want to hold the baby, apparently "babies and "old people freak him out!" Haha, he is crazy but you can tell he secretly loves her!

The blessing went well! Taylor did such a good job and hopefully the baby didnt catch RSV at church..I'm a little paranoid. We had alot of family and friends come and it was so fun to see them all. We had a lunch at our house after, our landlords let us use their kitchen and dining room. we had homemade rolls, chicken noodle soup, salad, and cookies! Everything would have been great but someone dropped a camera on the babies head while the baby was laying on the couch. I was talking to someone and heard the baby screaming and I went over to check on her and I could tell this was a "pain" cry. She had little tears coming down her cheek and I saw this HUGE gash on her head that was bleeding! It was so sad, and I started crying because all these things went through my mind like..did she have a concusion? Should I take her to the ER? Why did I leave her laying there?? Will she have brain damage? It was so terrible seeing that helpless baby in pain!!
Anyways after about 20 minutes of us both crying I realized that what I thought was a HUGE gash wasnt very big at all and the bump was already going down. I didnt set her down the rest of the afternoon! I am realizing that that was the first of many bumps and bruises, hopefully I will learn to handle it without getting so upset. Anyways it has been a busy week and now I can relax!! P.s. for the last two nights brynne has slept from 11:00pm to 6:30am, yea!!

You look super cute, is that the dress from Chadwicks?

Dione said...

Yes it is, I got it just in time!

You do look cute, Dione! That blessing dress is so beautiful. Your mom is amazing. That's much better than just letting your dress sit in a closet forever (like mine is).
