Opinions please!

I made this cover for the diaper wipes that I carry with me because I would rather see a cool fabric than a plastic wrap. Here are the before and after pics. Please tell me what you think. BE HONEST! If you think it is goofy, do tell.

Diaper wipes before.

How it works.

Katherine turns 10 !!!!

I can't believe that my first baby is 10 years old. She was born in Provo, Utah on the day of BYU homecoming at Utah Valley Hospital. This is one of the top 10 busiest hospitals, but I was the only woman in labor at the time. I think all the other husbands made their wife's wait until after the BYU game had finished. Katherine was 7lbs 6oz and was born at 7:06PM. We were so excited for her arrival. She held up her head like a champ the first day she was born!
Now she is 10 and ready to Party! We had a birthday party at our house this past Friday, we had the girls sew pillowcases. They all had so much fun. Katherine had fun with her friends, cake, and cool gifts!
Katherine and her friends! Yessina, Kalee, LeighAnn, Andie, Erin,and Olivia. they are all sporting their new pillowcases before watching a movie together.

LeighAnn, Katherine's cousin! She had a great time even though she had never met any of the other friends before!

Erin enjoying the cake, ya think? ;)

Katherine opening one of the many gifts. Her friends were very generous. It was so nice to have them all over to celebrate and see them all have fun together.

Look Mom I've got curls!

I have had stick straight hair my whole life, as most of you know. Not that I am complaining, but look what has happened during my pregnancy with Addison. It is great because now I can wear it straight or with body!

Addison's first three months!

Our sweet Addison was born June 29,2007. She weighed in at 8lbs 5oz and was 21 inches long. It has been so sweet to have a baby in our home again! I am trying my best to get a photo of her each month for the first year. I want to share the first three months now!
This picture was taken 2 days before Addison was born. Andie was at the perfect hieght to kiss my belly button and did so often!
This was taken the day Addison was born when the girls fist saw her at the hospital. They are so proud to have a baby sister and have been very helpful with her.Addison's 1st month! She is a very content baby. My mom left after helping us for 2 weeks and Ben's parents came to visit soon after. Ben, my dad Mike Boyle, Ben's dad Alan Oliver, my bro in law Chris d'Aquin, and our Bishop Chris Young all stood into bless Addison at home the first Sunday of August 2007.
Addiosn at 2 months! She is our first chunky baby and we are loving it. She weighed 13lbs at her 2 month check up. she is in the 95th % in wieght and 90th% in height. She measured 24 3/4 inches long at this check up.
Addison at 3 months! She is just starting to hold her head up well and is starting to grip with her hands. I am sure she is well into the 14lb range now! We are calling her Buddah because of all the rolls she is sporting. We can get her to laugh a bit now too, it is very cute!
