September 2011 craziness

I know, it has been a REALLY long time since I've blogged, but I feel like pregnancy and a newborn are an excellent excuse to take some time off. Andrew is three months old and I feel like I'm finally getting back into the swing of life. We had two big events happen in our family this month: Ashlee's baptism and Andrew's blessing. Luckily, they were spaced out about 3 weeks apart to give me some time to recover. Did I mention that we took our first family vacation with all four kids in between all of that??
Can I just say that I can't believe my little Ashlee Skye is old enough to be baptized??? It seems like I was just holding her in my arms and cooing her to sleep. Ok, so that might be a little bit of a lie since Ashlee rarely fell asleep in my arms. She has preferred sleeping in her own bed from day one. I digress....back to Ashlee's baptism. I felt so blessed to see my daughter make the choice to join the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We were also blessed to have both Adam's and my entire families there.

In between our family events, we took a few days to have a family vacation to Sun Valley, Idaho. Besides Adam and I's crazy allergies, we had a great time. We found out that Andrew does indeed travel well and it was just nice to get away for a little while.

Last, but not least, we blessed Andrew this last sunday. That little boy has been such a blessing in our lives and I'm so grateful for him. I have to admit that Heavenly Father definitely knows what He is doing, even when I'm being obstinate and ungrateful sometimes.

This blessing outfit is very special to me and not just because all three of my boys were blessed in it, but, because my Mom made this outfit originally for Alex from leftover scraps of my wedding dress material. My Mom is pretty amazing.
There, now you've been caught up a bit on the Talbot family's latest comings and goings.
