Seven Months Old and Baptized!

"Angel Baby" as Afton calls her, is now 7 months old. I cannot explain what a joy this baby has been for our family. Afton loves Maisy. 

Everything from riding in the car to taking a bath has become more interesting and fun for Afton. She loves the company of her little sister. Maisy is Afton's first thought in the morning. Afton loves climbing in the crib with her and playing until I come pull them both out. 

Afton with a picture she drew for Maisy. She can write Maisy's name just as well as she writes her own!

Maisy is sitting up well now. She is still practicing tummy-time and really doesn't like it. Maisy rolls from front to back, but never the other way around. She has gotten very good at her pincer grasp and is always searching for something to pop into her mouth. No teeth yet, but she is still able to enjoy a good rubbery pizza crust now and then.

The pizza crust- yum

 Maisy has finally taken to her baby food- and is eating breakfast, lunch and dinner. She is the best baby- bed at 7:30-8pm up at 7am. She is taking to 2-3 naps a day, good long ones. 

Her new favorite past-time, jumping. This girl wants to be standing all the time. If you hold her little hands, she will even 'walk' forwards. 

She is so even-tempered. Today we ran errands from the moment we dropped Afton off at school to when we picked her up. Maisy was happy to be my shopping partner for 5 hours and through 7 stores!

We celebrated our little blessing on Sunday. She was baptized at White's Chapel church by Pastor John. She looked angelic in her bonnet and gown. I couldn't pick which photo of her I liked best, so I just posted a bunch. Notice the sweet little pearl bracelet that Mimi gave to her. 

She didn't cry or fuss when the water was put on her head. Both she and Afton were both so good, they stayed in the pew with us for the entire service. Afton was so proud to stand in front of the church with our Maisy. 

Love my beautiful blondes :) 

I didn't take many photos at the luncheon afterwards, although I did manage to photograph my desserts the night before. The chocolate cake balls were to die for!  It was a beautiful day, made even more special by all of our family and friends. 

Yes- Grammy and Becka are back in Texas for good! 

I turn 30 years old on Sunday- gulp! Wish me luck!
