We Miss Daddy

Brian is working in Hong Kong for a few weeks and we already really miss him!!! This is a video for him and everyone else of Ellie being cute and using her voice a little bit. She can make a lot more noises and a lot louder.

Ellie and Daddy's First Dance

Ellie and Brian enjoyed their first dance together at Conrad and Rebecca's reception on July 10th.

Ellie's Blessing

Elizabeth Anne was blessed on July 6, 2008. It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of visitors. We are so grateful for all of those who traveled far to attend. Ellie was surrounded by great men of the Priesthood. We are so grateful for the gospel and the blessings that come from the Temple.

Before and After

Here is Ellie at one month. It has been quite an exciting month. Grandma Kinghorn came and visited us from Hawaii and we all went down to see Nana and Poppy Rackham, Uncle Jordan, Aunt Jenna, and Great Grandma and Grandpa Doty in Iowa and go to Paul and Tiffany's wedding in Nauvoo. We left just in time to get across the bridge to Illinois before the floods closed everything. When we got back to Michigan we got to go to the Battle Creek Breakfast Table/Cereal Festival. That was a lot of fun and Dad and the Young Men from the ward helped clean up. Aunt Bunny drove up to see us from Washington DC, and she and Grandma Kinghorn went to NY to visit Ken and Donna and their family. Now Nana, Poppy, Jordan and Jenna are visiting for the 4th of July weekend and Ellie's baby blessing in church on Sunday.
Ellie is still tiny! When we tell people she is a month old they ask if she was a preemie. We've been with her every day so the transition has been gradual, but we were absolutely amazed when we put the two pictures below together. The first one is the day we brought her home from the hospital and the next one is on June 28th, her one month birthday. Enjoy the pictures from the last month in the slideshow below.
