Eliza Lane seems to get very excited by her newest accomplishment and just wants to do it all the time. That means that currently she just loves to stand. She of course can't do it on her own... but she just wants someone or something to help her. I have tried to put her in the play pen recently and she won't bend her knees... so funny! :)

About a week ago, she just would not go to sleep. She had been almost asleep but then she woke up silly and wouldn't settle down.

We went to Olive Garden to have our family anniversary celebration. It was hilarious to have Eliza Lane with us... it was far more interesting to have a grabby little girl.

We were evacuated when a gas pipe broke in our neighborhood. We ate at Diego's. We went to Smiths. We visited the Giauques. It was fun!

Eliza Lane borrowed my toothbrush and adored it.

Skyler's cousin got married in the Timpanogos temple. I stayed outside with Eliza and Skyler attended the sealing. We went to the reception together.

We didn't realize how cold it would be. So, I put Eliza Lane in all 5 onesies that we had on hand and then we swaddled her.

Ethan came over for a little while to play. He is definitely one of Eliza Lane's favorite people. When she won't smile at anyone, she frequently still smiles at Ethan!

Just a few of the latest happenings. If you can tell, our battery died for awhile, and we used the cell phone... :)

Which ones are your favorite?

Ellie Marie Hollingshead- our newest neice!

Almost exactly 6 months after Eliza Lane, Ellie Marie was born: 7 lbs 5 oz.

Whitni, Skyler's sister, went into labor on Sunday and was admitted into the hospital that night. She went to a 6 and then got an epidural. Then she went all the way to pushing and pushed and pushed and pushed. By that point, she and the baby's heart rates were high, so they did an emergency C-section. Ellie had been sunny-side up, so she wasn't coming out.

Whitni is doing well and will probably go home tomorrow, Thursday afternoon. Ellie is in NICU and they are running some tests. Once she is able to eat more and hold her weight, she will be going home.

Please keep them in your prayers!

Fountain Green, UT

To celebrate my dad's birthday early, we headed down to Fountain Green.

We also celebrated Canyon's birthday late!

Eliza Lane and Londyn enjoyed the outdoors. They are both getting so big!!! I think Eliza Lane is catching up on size!!

We had a picnic near the fresh spring, which was probably the highlight of the excursion!

Eliza Lane really enjoyed the spring because she loves water!!! I think she is gonna be a swimmer like her daddy!
