Baby Bonding: Utah Part 2

While we were in Utah, we got to see cousin Jack!! My sister, Natalie, had her little boy 8 weeks after Eliza, but by looking at them, you'd think Jack was older. ( he's bigger) We had a lot of fun with them!

 Chilling in their pjs. Not quite sure what to think of each other. They were moving quite a bit, hence the blurry pictures.
In the elevator after we visited by Grandpa and Grandma Thomas.  It was so great to see them! Eliza's middle name is Ann, after my middle name. And my middle name is Ann after my Grandma Thomas.  She's a great woman.

Such cuties! We saw our good friends, the Jensens, while we were there too.  Quincey is about 4 weeks younger than Eliza. It was great to see them!

Rollin', rollin', rollin'

Our little girl started rolling last week and there is no going back.  She rolled from her back to her stomach first, but then quickly rolled from her tummy to her back the same day. She was pretty motivated since she hates being on her tummy.  We can't believe she's old enough to roll! She's already rolling into things, but usually just goes in one direction.

Jack and Eliza!

Utah: Part 1

We just got back from a very busy, quick, and fun trip to Utah for Andrew's Mom's wedding.  These pictures are courtesy of Andrew's Aunt Becky.  Thank goodness other people took pictures! It was our first real trip with Eliza, and it was a bit crazy.  She did pretty well though considering how little sleep she got.

 I LOVE this picture of Eliza.  So cute!
 Family photo! I can't believe she's looking at the camera!
Andrew's little cousin, Anna, playing with Eliza.  She was so sweet with her and loved helping her with her binky and toys.
Andrew's cousin, John, and his wife, Katharine,  had their little boy, Spencer, on the same day that Eliza was born! They will be good buddies! This picture was taken at the dinner  after Debbie's wedding. It was at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, and it was beautiful. Hopefully I can mooch more pictures from the dinner and wedding soon! :)

Oh! And Eliza rolled over yesterday.  Woohoo! Hopefully I'll catch her on film soon.

Blessing Pictures

Pictures from Eliza's blessing! At least some of them.  The morning of Eliza's blessing was a little chaotic, and I forgot our CAMERA! Luckily I got some pictures from my family, but now I need to work on getting pictures from Andrew's family. We were so lucky to have Andrew's Mom, Matt Miller (her fiancee, almost husband), Matthew, Jacob, Lydia, and Grandma and Grandpa Oscarson come for the blessing! AND my parents, Heather and her husband Trevor, Josh, Nikki, and Amber (just missing Nat, Alex, and baby Jack).  We had a lot of people there! It was wonderful to have them all with us to celebrate. She was blessed on May 20, so she was about 2 months old. 

 So Eliza is NOT in her blessing dress in these two pictures, unfortunately.  The dress she wore was handmade by Andrew's Grandma Oscarson, originally for Andrew's Aunt Becky, and I didn't want Eliza to blow out in the dress! We didn't have time for her to change back into after church for the pictures, but she looks cute anyway! :) There are pictures of her in the dress below.
 With my family. From left to right: Nikki, Amber, Heather, Andrew, Trevor, me, Josh, Mom, Dad
 A picture of the dress.  So beautiful!
 Eliza is not two months old in these pictures. More like 3 1/2. We went up to Minnesota soon after the blessing, so these pictures were a little delayed.  

 Our little doll.
 One of my favorites. 

Doing some Pilates.  She's pretty hardcore.
