Evan's blessing day was such a wonderful and special day. We felt truly blessed by the support of amazing friends and family. Although Evan is still a little guy, he already has strengthened my testimony. Being around him reminds me that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father.
I have to admit, as wonderful as it is to be a mother, it's a whole lot harder than I ever imagined. I thought that since I wouldn't be working that I would have a TON of time to get things done...haha WRONG! I never realized just how busy newborns are! Between the constant feedings, diaper changes, outfit changes (mine and his), etc I have a full day! Dayne will often come home from school to see Evan and I still be in our pajamas, the house a mess, and no dinner made; I look at him and say "I know it doesn't look like I've been busy, but I haven't had down time all day." haha However, every time I get to snuggle my little one or see a smile on his face, it makes everything worth it! I just grow to love our little family more and more every day. I'm so grateful that because of the gospel and a loving Heavenly Father, I get to be with my family forever. A few weeks ago, Dayne's family came to visit and we had so much fun! Thanks for coming Dean family and Grandma and Grandpa Willvie!
