So Allyson has learned a few new things including smiling and sucking her thumb. We are so excited about both. The smiling is the best because we look at her and she smiles back. WOW!!! She has the most beautiful smile too. She has even been smiling more at Grandma too. Her thumb is her new favorite thing. She spends a long time trying to get it in her mouth but once she does she is so happy. Sometimes she gets it in her mouth the first time, but other times it takes 2 or 3 tries. The thumb sucking also helps us because she is able to sleep longer and put herself to sleep. I couldn't believe it last night I put her to bed with her eyes wide open and I didn't hear a sound from her. Of course I had to go check on her and she had fallen asleep. I couldn't believe it.
We also celebrated Father's Day this week. It was a great day. It started with one of Justin's favorites strawberry waffles with wipe cream. Then we headed to church and tried the church nursery for the first time. Our little angle slept the entire time, from Sunday school to big church. All of the nursery workers were all very disappointed. We told them not to worry we will be back. The rest of the day was full of relaxation and time together. It was a blast.
This week we also had a chance to get together with some of my high school friends. I am so lucky to have such great friends. It has been a blast to go to each others weddings and watch our families grow. We have another wedding coming up in September. We can't wait. Thank you for everything, I love you all.
Here are a few pictures from this past week.
