Happy and Sad Moments

Well the past week brought a lot of fun times, and one not so fun time! Last Friday, Jonathan's family began arriving in town to participate in Adalyn's blessing. Jonathan's mom and dad, sister and brother-in-law and nieces, as well as one of his brothers made the trip to be here. It was a blast to see them and spend the weekend with them. It made for an enjoyable and relaxing weekend for us. Sunday morning Adie was blessed at our chapel in Pleasant Grove. All of Jeana's brothers and her dad stood in the circle as well as Jonathan's dad, brother and brother-in-law. Jonathan's friend Mark from the mission, Alex Johnson from the mission, and Jeana's Mission President, Jerry Hatch stood in the circle as well. It was a very special day for us.

After the blessing we went back to the Botkin house for a luncheon. Thank you to all of our family and friends that came to this special event to support us and show their love for our little family. We love you all.

Now, for the not so happy part of our week. On Tuesday, Adalyn had her 2 month check-up with Dr. Wilcox. She got 5 shots and an oral vaccine. She cried and cried all day until she finally went down for bed. Her little legs were swollen, she had a fever and her Crayon band-aids didn't seem to make her feel any better! But the good news is that the next day she was back to her same ol' cheery self. At her check-up she weighed 11 Pounds 4 Ounces and was 23 inches long. She smiles all the time and talks up a storm!

Ok, NEXT TIME you take a picture of someone you should tell them you are taking a picture of them! THEN we could smile and not look all squirly!! How embarrassing. It was a fun day, thanks for having us!
By the way: Brett doesn't appreciate his future sons wife having a porno picture on the web! haha.
