P.S. We had a great Christmas....I will post pictures later!
It was getting cold so we only went on the Weeping Rock trail with Ashlyn, but she still had so much fun!
This was our amazing view as we left the park....
Marshall is also starting to get his cute little "attitude" too:) He is a very happy baby, I think the Lord knew that Marshall is exactly what I needed at this time in my life. He has that mischevious look in his eyes when he smiles. I think he is just getting ready to get into everything when he is mobile - LOOK OUT!
It was one of the most spiritual events I have experienced. I am still in awe at the sight of my amazing husband tenderly taking my special baby boy in his arms, being surrounded by the men of our families, and by the power of the Priesthood blessing Marshall with strength, wisdom, and so many other things that Marshall will need to make the right choices to follow the path that the Lord has prepared for him.
Marshall will be 3 months old tomorrow - I can't believe how quickly time has flown! I am so thankful to have been given the opportunity to raise this special baby boy - there were times during his pregnancy that I didn't think I would be able to do so during this life. I think that knowing that makes me hold onto the little moments longer and savor in them. I love being a mom to my two adorable children - there is nothing better.
Ashlyn has been keeping me very busy since she has started her 2nd year of Preschool - we read and read and read and read some more! She is a huge help with Marshall (sometimes a little too helpful) but I wouldn't change her one bit. I love her personality - sassy and all - she is so much fun! The other day she wore her black pants with her black boots to school - she told her teacher, the babysitter, and all of her friends that they are her work clothes - just like her mommy's. She makes me so proud!
