Lexi had her nine month wellness check up and to nobody's surprise she was above the 95% in every area; 22 lbs 13 oz and 30" long. She has been so much fun to watch grow these last few months. Her personality is shining through more each day. She is such a little goof ball and loves to make herself laugh, which is really fun to listen to throughout the day. She has the ability to stand, but hasn't mustered up the courage to do it on her own yet. If I tell her no, she will point her finger back at me and start telling me something in baby talk. The other day Lexi crawled over to a basketball and a volleyball that were side by side. She made her mother very proud and picked the volleyball over the basketball. She has her priorities right.

I love Weddings!!!

Last week we took a trip to Utah for my little brother's wedding. He did a great job of selecting an awesome girl. Just for the record I told him back in High School that he should date Bre. I have no pictures of the wedding, but some are on the way courtesy of my sister in law Tiff. I will post them when they come. Before the wedding we did our traditional Thanksgiving pie night a month early. My mom made over twenty different kinds of pie, yum!!! Every Christmas Eve when I was at home we would have a pinata, so I wanted Lexi so experience her first pinata. It was fun!

Nate's sister Julia lives in Utah and a bunch of his family went out to visit for our nephew Kenner's birthday. We also had a birthday celebration for Nate's mom. This was a fun picture!!

After the wedding we stayed for a few more days and enjoyed Temple Square. It was so fun to visit with family and see old friends! Lexi did much better this time around with letting other people hold her which was very nice.
