August Rush

August was super busy for our family, but tons of fun. It was the first time in SO LONG that Nick wasn't in school and I totally got spoiled by having him with us so much! That has now officially ended because he started school again this week. Boo.

The first of the month brought friends and family to our home for Leyla's blessing. It was fun to show off our sweet baby girl to everyone, and Nick gave a very special blessing to his daughter. Her dress fit perfectly! If we had waited even one more week I don't think it would have fit her. The pink dress she is wearing in the last picture is my blessing dress.

Leyla also had her two month well baby visit and shots. She's doing great and is in the 75% for both height and weight which were:

Weight: 11 pounds 4 ounces
Height: 22 2/3 inches long

She is such a smily girl. Owen likes to lay on the ground beside her and sing her "Owen songs" which are basically odd sounds he puts together in a sing-song sort of way. Cute to watch...kind of annoyng to hear all the time!

We also made two trips to Utah. We first went down to go to a surprise birthday party for some of Nick's old friends. We also spent the day at the Gateway in Salt Lake going to the Discovery Center and playing in the fountains. The next weekend we were back down to attend the sealing of my aunt and uncle (Ben & Stacey) in the Bountiful Temple. It was fun being back there, we haven't been since our own sealing. We then headed down to Springville to spend some time with Murph & Wally (grandma and grandpa). So good to see them.

I'm sure September will be just as busy and exciting so stay tuned!

Our Friends the Phillips

Chris, Jayme, and their two girls came to visit us (and meet Leyla) back in July. It was tons of fun having them here and it's sad that we only get to see them a couple times a year. We were sure excited for them to come see us. One of the days we took them up to my parents house for dinner, water balloons, and a few rides on Coco. Except for the sudden thunder storm it was a lot of fun. We even got to have Jayme's sister, Bree and her friend spend the day with us. They were here more than that one day but of course I have no other pictures :)
