Esme sits up all by herself...and she is good at it!

We had the Jacob's over for a barbecue, and Eden does such a great job at holding Esme. And Eden and Sophie do a great job being adorable!

Esme sucks on her lips, and I caught her in the action here.

Sealing and Blessing May 15, 16 2010

What a special weekend for us all. We had a tremendous amount of love and support that was overwhelming and a great reminder about what is important in life. Family. Friends. The love of our Savior. The many blessings of happiness and goodness in our lives that we enjoy. Esme was sealed for Time and all Eternity to James and me on Saturday morning. We were in the sealing room with those we love, and who love us. Esme was beautiful, sweet, good, and alert. It was a wonderful moment of what truly matters in life. James gave her a blessing in church on Sunday, and it was a spiritual experience as well. It was a beautiful weekend. Thanks to all for the love and support.

Happy Day Brunch after court

Kay treated us to Peso's on Queen Anne in Seattle for a celebratory brunch.

We are Legal!!! Esme's Day in Court

Today was our special Day. It is sunny and bright. Esme was a perfect angel and was pleasant all morning. She got a bath this morning so she could feel her freshest and cleanest and best. She was looking her best with a sweet little dress and blue shoes and a bow in her hair. We picked up Kay on the way to the courthouse. There was another family there adopting a little girl too. The courtroom was small and the judge was nice. The attorney that represented us was named Andrew. He was very nice too. The actual event lasted only about 5 minutes in front of the Judge. We got some pictures with him behind his desk, then we got the official documents that name James and me Esme's parents. It was a great day!

asleep with the dad

Rigid as a 2 x 4

Holding Esme is like snuggling with a 2 x 4. So this is one of her baby tricks. She is stiff as a board.
