Has is been a month?

Phew!

Almost a month has gone by since the last post! Trying to keep my feet under me! I'm back to being a single mom, but this time with 3 little girls! Blake and Reese both play so well together making it so much easier for me to take care of baby Layne and tend to household chores.

When baby Layne was only 10 days old or so we made a trip to St George, UT, for my cousin's wedding. Since so many family members were there we decided it would be a perfect time to bless the baby, too! It was such a wonderful weekend. My parents and grandparents along with Dan's parents and grandparents were there. Not to mention a slew of Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and friends! We were fretting the night before the blessing about having food and munchies available for the guests. My AMAZING aunt, the one that just put on a wedding and reception, brought all the leftovers from the reception and we had an amazing spread! Her home made chili, bread, salad, wedding cake, pumpkin pie, and cheese cake. YUM!!!

Dan was able to be home for a good 3 1/2 weeks. That's a long stay home for us! What a blessing to have had him here for so long. Unfortunately, we won't get time like that with him until December! Ouch! And so much changes with a baby in that time!

So I'll be making some play-dates and events to look forward to for the upcoming weeks so we can have fun and count down to see our dad!

Here's a bunch of pictures for all to enjoy!
