Playing Catch Up... Sorta

I haven't been very diligent in keeping up with our blog. So I have to catch up a little in this one blog post. Things have been going really well. We've been having a ton of fun on our new adventure. These are just a few of the things we've been up to.

We went to New York and got our first family photos taken. Alette wasn't very cooperative. She was hot and tired and she HATED wearing her headband. We had bought her a size 3 month jumper dress to wear earlier that week and it should have fit her but she was once again too big (she's about 9-10 weeks)! There were a lot of things that I wish I could have changed BUT, our Photographer, Sara Weir (click on her name and see her wonderful work!), did a fantastic job on our photos. I love the colors so much and they actually managed to look really great, we probably couldn't have pulled it off without Sara!

Alette turned 3 Months old! She is enormous. We compare her to the other babies that are a year old in our branch and she is very close to their size. She is now wearing 6-9 month sleepers. We constantly get stopped while we're shopping, people love to look at her, they tell us she looks like a porcelain doll. We are very lucky parents, she giggled for me one day and it was so wonderful. I have been trying to get her to giggle again but I guess I'm not funny enough. I have also been trying to introduce her to baby cereal, she doesn't have the patience for it yet, when she's hungry she wants that bottle in her mouth and no questions asked!

I got a new calling as the Relief Society 2nd Councilor. It's been alright, I have had to teach a lesson and that was a little nerve wracking for me but I got through it. I am also in charge of teaching the Literacy Class, I've only taught one so far and it went really well.

Nick just finished his Psychiatry Rotation. It's bittersweet for me, Nick had such an easy schedule. He was coming home from any where between 12-2 P.M. which was so nice for all of us, we were able to spend a lot more time together than I thought we would. It is nice that he is moving on to his next Rotation, which is Family Medicine. Psychiatry was a little too depressing. Needless to say, Nick will not be a Psychiatrist but he did enjoy the learning experience.

Yesterday was Nick's first day of Family Medicine. He looked so wonderful as he headed out the door with his white coat! I'm so proud of how far he's come!
