One month and a blessing

This past weekend the Ballards took San Antonio by storm! Cole's whole family sans a sister (we missed you Janey, Jason + Maisey) were in town to meet Lily and give her her baby blessing. On Friday, we went to the Alamo, did a Riverwalk cruise and ate at Rosario's, which is now my favorite Mexican place in San Antonio. Delish!

The paparazzi
On Saturday was Six Flags and Sunday was the blessing. Sunday was one of the happiest days of my life! I loved having Cole's family there. It was a really special day. We celebrated at The Gristmill, which also added to my happiness.

One good lookin' bunch, eh?
Our little family
Judith, a lady from church, made her dress and blanket as a gift! We thought it was beautiful!
Also on Sunday, Lily turned one month old. She:
  • Likes to cuddle up on our chest and fall asleep
  • Has started expressing herself in other ways besides screaming (hurray!)
  • Loves her baths and to have her hair brushed
  • Thinks it's funny to poop in her towel after the bath
  • Has started to smile

Major bedhead


We love Lily so much, and we love Cole's family! Can't wait 'til Cancun!

That first picture with all the phones out is HILARIOUS. Cole and his brothers look so much alike, wow, Terry and I were pointing them out in Sacrament meeting - "yep. That's Cole's brother". "Oh look, there's another one." "One More". Too funny.
