Sweet Sunday Smiles

We have a smiler! Michael has been smiling (on purpose) for close to two weeks now, but just this Sunday I was able to get it on camera for the first time. He’s so sweet! Lily got jealous while I was taking pictures of him, so I told her that I’d take pictures of her as well, but only if she’d smile. I didn’t figure it would work – lately she almost always refuses to pose for the camera and she especially hasn’t been smiling for the camera much at all. But she immediately turned on the charm! I love my babies. :)

Michael's Blessing

Last Sunday Michael was blessed! It was really special. My family,  including my Grandpa Harry (Grandma Pat wasn't feeling well enough to come) came up to be a part of the blessing, and Ben's brother Daniel came up with his family also. After church, we all, including our friends the Adams and the Smiths, went to a park and had a picnic together. It was pretty great, beautiful weather, and lots of fun just to hang out. And here are pictures!

Wide-eyed and much cooler with his church outfit off - it was pretty hot that day.

Lily and her uncle Josh. It's kind of fuzzy, but I thought it was a cute picture of the two of them together.

Lily liked trying to push Piper around in her stroller, even though Ashlyn put the locks on. She still managed to get it pretty far though!

This was about 20 minutes after we got home. She's never fallen asleep in her high chair before, but she was conked out after playing outside for hours.
