In line waiting to go in.
Brinly was overcome by her beautifully BIG hair...she now wants curly hair just like hers.
My baby girl, all grown up. I remember MY first day of kindergarten, how can she be starting hers? It is so hard to believe that she is entering the real world... so innocent. The reality of her not being mine, but Heavenly Father's really hit today. I love her and miss her already! BUT progress...that is what life is about...progress.
Before school with brother. He was quite disappointed that he wasn't able to accompany her on the bus.

Adelle is smiling up a storm! She has been really cute socially- she is interacting really well and even rolling over now (from back to tummy). She has been a joy. She still isn't sleeping super well, but is doing better than the first 6 weeks.
Cade is still smoothering his little sister. He will come up to her and say "I love my sister." with a cheesy smile, as shown here.

So, my father is a retired AF pilot. He flew several different aircraft during his career- including the U2 spyplane, aka the Lady Dragon (b/c it was so difficult to fly & land). While completinga 3 yr assignment in England, I remember one afternoon walking home from school with my Dad and attempting to explain my utter amazment that he was actually getting PAID to fly airplanes! I just thought, how cool that was b/c it must be so exciting and down right fun to fly a plane- and getting paid for it was just this wonderful bonus to the experience:)
Anyway, he would come home with different parts of his flight suit- his helmet and gloves are what I remember specifically (and one other item that was a mystery to us at the time- my dear sisters would remember that, ha!).
This video was recently discovered of a real U2 flight. It reafirmed my "My Dad is the coolest" mentality! You have GOT to watch it. The only difference is usually there is only one cockpit- the one in the video must be a trainer plane. Seriously, watch it-here is:

Amidst our illness, Adelle gave me the best conversation yet! It was just adorable how hard she was trying to verbally mimic my words. While she was talking her eyes started to water and her skin turned blotchy- that much effort was being put forth. She was trying SO hard. It definately brightened my day.

Adelle was born June 10th at 10:24am weighing 6.0lbs, 19 inches long.
She is really sweet and her big sister and brother are enjoying her, as are her Mommy, Daddy, and Grandmas and Aunties. I am very tired and sore and hopefully will be able to rest more now that I'm home (hardly slept in the hospital at all). I'm off for a nap while the kids do the same!

My sister, Ali's wedding was beautiful! I made it to the sealing and everything, amazingly enough- even with a scare in the early morning hours before the wedding (contractions for a couple of hours). It was a wonderful setting, with beautiful weather-honestly, they couldn't have gotten better weather in St. George for JUNE..it was unbelievably cool. Ali was beautiful, Perris was very handsome. They make a great couple, don't ya think?!
The cake turned out nice. Bigger than I wanted, but it was nice and even tasted good:) Transporting a cake is an interesting task, but it all worked out well with only a few mishaps.
Brinly and Cade were adorable in their little outfits, as was their cousin Addison. They had fun together for the most part- with a few moments of teasing and arguing:) Don't they look adorable?:)Brinly and Cade had a good time on the temple grounds playing in the shade of this enormous tree (don't you love it?). We miss those good old trees!! Peak-a-boo. Love them.

I really am grateful that this has been an uneventful pregnancy; I guess I'm feeling a bit impatient. I need to keep busy, but can't seem to do that b/c my body won't allow it! Anyway, just venting. I'll be wishing I was still pregnant in a few weeks when I'm not sleeping a wink and taking care of three children!

We always end up camping when I'm just beginning and just ending a pregnancy! I just had the suspision I was pregnant when we went to Zion's last fall, and found out later that I was....and we just went camping this weekend to the Valley of Fire and I'm 35 weeks pregnant;) Crazy, I know. But we still had a good time (minus sleeping). Enjoy the video!
