I'm back!

Well, we're back safe and sound from Colorado! It was so good to go back home and be with family! Even though I was ready to be in our own beds (Sam was too) and see my husband again, it always feels so empty when I leave family again! And as soon as we flew down into the Denver area I had a smile on my face...I didn't realize until I was there how much I miss it and hope we end up back there some day!

Anyway, Sam did AMAZING on the plane! I was expecting to have to use benedril or something, but as soon as we took off, both on the way there and home, he was out and didn't wake up until the end of the flight! I had people telling me constantly how good of a baby he is! It was great!

John and Micha's wedding was so simple and beautiful and I loved it! They both were glowing and so happy and I am so happy for them! Micha is such a great addition to the family...and she looked beautiful! I loved the sealing because it made me think of mine and Dave's and helped me realize how incredibly blessed I am!

It was so good to see Cindi all big and prego too! She looked so cute! And I got to feel little Aaron kicking which was wonderful! (Those of you who are my sisters can picture me saying that last sentence in our trademark voice). It's hard to believe that the next time I see her she will have little Aaron by then! Crazy!

Unfortunately, the day I left was Jessica's prom, which I would have loved to be there for (to see her off and stuff, I mean). But I did get to go with her to get some things for it and when she got her nails done on Saturday morning. I had such a good time with her and with everyone!

This is Jessica tending to her sun burnt legs...I guess that's what you get for ditching class!

Other than the above things I mentioned, nothing too exciting went on while we were there...just a lot spending time together. It was also so good to see my brother again. It feels like it has been forever! And I loved hanging out with him and Leslie and their unbelievably ADORABLE girls. They were so cute!

It was funny because Ayla (Leslie and Brian's youngest - around Sam's age) kept trying to be a typical girl and hug Sam, and Sam was a typical boy - dodging all her hugs every chance he could. Here's a picture of her sneaking in a hug and a kiss. :)

Sam did learn some new words and things while we were there, which was so fun and wonderful, even though Dave was bummed he missed them. But Sam is doing new things every day that he's bound to miss something!

Speaking of Sam, he had his 15 month check up and shots yesterday and is doing extremely well! So far, he hasn't had a reaction to the shots at all. But then again, it has only been a little over 24 hours so we'll see... He is in the 75th% for height and head size and still only in the 20th% for weight. Which means he is growing, but not extremely fast. He is a tall skinny healthy boy! His new favorite thing to do while we are at the store is go up to every random person he sees and say "hi!" and then run away. He's definitely not shy.

That's it for now!

That sounds so fun! Glad you guys made it safe. I know it is hard to leave Colorado. We just love it here too! I am taking Keeli on a plane tomorrow for the first time and I am a little nervous. I hope she is good, like Sam!! What cute pictures! Sam is sure growing up fast!!
