Time Flies! A quick update

Ok. Where did June go?! I honestly don't think a month has ever flown by so quickly! Here's a rapid rundown of what we've been up to lately.

We took Aileah for her first "hike". Ok... so really it's more of a pleasant stroll. But you gotta start somewhere, right? We went up to Bridal Veil Falls. She is one outdoorsy girl! She could be crying super hard but then stop the minute we get outside. We hope this is a lasting trait of hers.

On the 4th of July our little girl turned 1 month! Aileah is such a good, happy baby. She smiles and coos at us all the time. I am fortunate to have this summer to be a stay-at-home mom. I'm loving this time I have to spend with her. It breaks my heart to think of going back to work at the end of summer! What an adorable, long-awaited blessing this girl is. I kinda like her... a lot!
More often than not we hear, "She looks just like her daddy!" Who do you think she looks like?

We had Aileah's blessing on July 5th. We had so many friends and family members with us to celebrate this special day. We love you all! Aileah was wide awake during her blessing but didn't make a sound. She just stared at her Daddy with her beautiful big eyes! Tom gave her a beautiful blessing!

On Monday, Tom and I decided to go to a couple of places we've never been before. We went to Young Living Farms and the Lotus Temple. It was so nice to get out as a family!

I love my life! I have truly been blessed beyond anything I deserve. I have the privilege of being married to my best friend! I love seeing him with Aileah- it makes me fall in love with him all over again! He is such a great husband and father! I have a sweet little girl, who melts my heart with her smile. I love this little family. Yes... life is good!
