Tyler's Farewell

We went down to LaVerkin again this weekend for Tyler's farewell. It was a great weekend. Tyler did such a great job on his talk in church!! I was very impressed with him and think that he will make a GREAT missionary. Listening to him and just being there made me start thinking of my own mission. What a great opportunity it is to serve. After we got home last night I got an email from a friend in Ireland that gave me an update on one of the girl's I helped to teach and baptize while I was there. What a great blessing to hear how well she is doing! This is such an amazing lucky we are to have it in our lives.

While in Southern Utah we had a lot of fun watching the Farmer's Day parade, we went to Aryn's dance recital (which she did a great job at and Zaylee had a blast watching), and just had fun with family. Unfortunately, I didn't get any family pictures but I did get this cute one of Zaylee before we left for church on Sunday.

10 Months Old

I can't believe how fast she is growing! Zaylee just keeps getting bigger and brighter everyday. She is finally getting her first tooth (nothing to show by camera yet but you can feel the tooth breaking through), she is taking a few steps (only four at a time and it's a quick, quick, fall kinda walk but still), getting into everything, and finally, she LIKES people!! =) It's such a happy occasion! We took her to Alex's end of the year social for his doctorate program and she was the life of the party. She was letting a ton of different people hold her, smiling at everyone, and just putting on an overall show. It was fun. Speaking of which...I want to quickly tell everyone that they awarded scholarships for next year to 3 of the audiology students based on academic and clinical performance and Alex was awarded 1 of the top scholarships! YEA for him!! Back to the party there was a huge dog (a mix between a German shepard and something else) that Zaylee loved playing with. She went right up to him and starting 'attacking' him. He was really good with her though and even let her tug his hair. Afterwards we went to a classmates house so they could work on a presentation and they have two little dogs (terriers) that loved licking Zaylee's face. She handled it really well and just kept pushing them away from her. Eventually she was sick of it and picked up a cd case and held it in front of her face to block the tongues! =) She's a smarty! I don't know her weight or her height but it seems she's getting bigger everyday. Enjoy the pics. (P.S. the pics of her in the car was when we were stopped yard selling--I promise when we took off she was in her car seat!! But if you have a sec click on the 1st pic of her in the car, her expression is GREAT!)

Zaylee and her Fisher Price Walker

I just had to show you how big Zaylee is getting! I stood her up next to the walker today just to see how she would do and well, see for yourself! In this particular shot that we got she had a Cheerio in her hand that she refused to let go of so it was a little bit more shaky for her than the previous goes. Before this she was crusing around the house with me only acting as the steering wheel. It was a blast! I hope you enjoy!
