Hannah Pictures of the Week

Hannah Playing with her hair

Sweet Expressions

Looking Vexed, wondering why mommy keeps taking pictures


Its as if I all did for 9 months was grow cheeks and hair!

Hannah is getting bigger every day! This week she weighed in at 8 pounds 13 oz and is 20 inches long. Adam loves to sit with her on his lap, giving her kiss after kiss and telling her "kisses" after each one. He wants to make sure she knows what kisses are and that they are reserved for daddy.

Hannah loves her hair just as much as everyone else. She loves to grab onto it and play with it in times of both stress and contentment. Right now I'm watching her sleep on her tummy (the doctor recommends "tummy time" to help develop digestion and strength in the muscles) Hannah is getting stronger everyday!

I love being a mom. Last night Hannah and I were alone for a few hours and we spent that time listening to primary music. It was such a special moment as I listened to songs like "Teach me to walk in the Light" and "A Child's Prayer." It is strange being on the other end of the music, knowing that it is my responsibility to raise her to love the Lord and be a valiant person. About a month ago in church a man asked if I knew that one of Heavenly Father's most precious spirits was being sent to me. It made me want to be a better person. Tears streamed down my face as I listened to "Love is Spoken Here." There is a line that says "mine is a home where every hour is blessed by the strength of priesthood power" I was so grateful for Adam in that moment, and for the loving spirit in our home, especially since Hannah joined us. She has strengthened our relationship with each other. We know she is the greatest gift we could have given each other. She is wonderful and we are so grateful for her.
