Our little Aspen turned 5 months yesterday. She is nice and plump and oh-so-cuddly. We started her on rice cereal a few weeks back. She didn't seem to like it at first, so we switched to an organic brand and now she loves the stuff. Funny thing, Toby was the same way.

She's still waking up about every 3 hours, but one week she gave me a few nights of only waking up once. It was heaven. And for the most part, she is still a cat-napper. However, as of late she has been giving me random 1.5-2 hour naps at different times every day. So that has been nice, but I just wish I knew when they were going to be so I could plan my days better. Those little breaks are crucial to a mom's sanity I tell ya!

Aspen is such a happy baby though. So smiley and good-natured. No matter how tired I am, sometimes all it takes is seeing one of her huge, gummy smiles and my day seems a little brighter.

We had her blessed last month. It was a great day. Nick gave a beautiful blessing. Now I just need to remember to write down what he said before I forget it all like I did when Toby was blessed.

I actually borrowed my nieces blessing dress. I guess I'm not sentimental enough to drop $50 on a dress she will only wear once.

Toby with his buddy Canton and my friend Deborah.

Ness was the only sister able to make it to the blessing. But I wore my purple necklace so I could have a little piece of Mikel with me. :)

Enjoy the rest of the pics. I kind of just pointed the camera and snapped random photos if you can't tell. :)

My cute mom.

So I have MUCH more catching up to do, so stay tuned for a plethora of posts...
