Okay, I think that these loaded up wrong, but here are the first set of pictures that we have from Harley's birth! Harley Jane was born 8:53 am 6/24/09 and she was 6lb 15oz and 18 inches long. She is beautiful and tiny and looks just like Ava did when she was born, except Harley's head is a little smaller. She has been a pretty easy baby so far and has taken a liking to breast feeding, which is great (Ava didn't at all). She has actually let us sleep most of the last 2 nights. Anyways... Ava is loving her new sister and wants to hold her all of the time.

We are so happy and blessed that everything turned out great with my C-section and everything else that went on last week. We will add more pictures when we can get some more time! Thanks to those that came and visited us in the hospital, it meant a lot.

Harley's room!

Here is Harley's room, minus the curtains! I painted the canvas' with the help of one of my dads art gadgets (he has a ton:) He had a new projector that let me set it right on top of the blanket material, so I traced the image and then painted them to match. I made the blanket for her room along with a tag blanket to match. I love the lavendar color! Ava wanted me to take a picture of her when I took these! She is so excited to put all of her baby animals in the crib! The last picture is her changing table, but the bloomers I got off of Etsy, they are for her newborn pictures, they turned out so adorable. Can't wait for Harley to be here!

Ava's new room!

Finally it is complete, except for the curtains my mom is in the process of making:) Nate worked really hard and made these bunk beds for Ava and Harley (when she is old enough). They turned out awesome! I am so proud of him for making the beds for his little girls! I am sure that they will be something they will treasure later. I made the matching quilts for their beds. I love the material and bright colors and think that they turned our so much better than I thought I could do. I stole the turkey baster painting idea from Beau and Jessica! I got the silhouette picture idea of off a craft blog ( I can't remember which one) it took me awhile to get Ava to not look at the camera, but I got one good shot, then printed it out and put it on black paper, and viola! She likes it too!

More pictures sent to me from Heather!

Here are some professional pictures that Heather emailed to me. They turned out so good, even if the weather wasn't cooperating!

Holly's wedding!

Holly and Jon got married in the Salt Lake City temple yesterday and they were so cute and happy together! Here are just a couple pictures that I took with my camera. It started to rain during their pictures, but it turned out to be a beautiful day after all.

What we've been up to...

Ava loves putting all of her animal babies to sleep. She will take all of her "babies" and put them on the floor with pillows and then give the play food and cover them with blankets. Then she comes out of her room and tells us that we need to be quiet because her babies are sleeping.

This is what happens when you ask you 2 1/2 year old to go upstairs and get her shoes for church... she came down with 27 necklaces on! She refused to take them off, so we let her go to church like that. We got some looks that day!

When we were unpacking some of the last boxes she found the Santa hat and was wearing along with putting it on all of her bay animals.
