2 months already!

Britton is already 2 months old! We had his doctors appointment yesterday. He is 14 pounds 10 ounces and 24.5 inches long. We actually hit the charts this time coming in at 94% on weight and 96% on height. We also blessed him on July 19th. Isaac did a wonderful job on the blessing. Britton cried a little. Andrew sat still with a dum-dum. What more could I ask for? We had a fun party with family and friends afterwards, welcoming Britton into our family!

Our Garden

We planted a garden at the beginning of May in a tiny section of our yard after being instructed to by our stake president (and like we should anyway). I have never planted a garden so Andrew, Isaac, and I worked on getting the weeds pulled and Isaac planted tomato plants zucchini plants, and cucumber plants. Yes, it is a little bit overgrown, but I am amazed when I look at it. We have had several zucchini already but today I picked the first ripe tomatoes.....way exciting to me. My sister-in-law, Emily, thinks I am just as excited about the garden as I was about my new child...similar feelings, but the child of course wins out on that one. We also have an apricot tree and two apple trees that Isaac has been spraying and the fruit on them is out of control. I don't love apricots, but these have been pretty good.
