I know this is SUPER late in posting, but we blessed baby Henry on his 2 week birthday - August 12, 2012. The reason we did it so soon was because my sister Karla remarried August 14th and all of my siblings were in town! What an opportunity! In the circle there was James, my dad, his dad, Joe Schmitt, Brad Stephenson, Lance Hori (Kar's new hubby), Tom Evans, Terry Schmitt, Wesley Schmitt and Scott Carter. We were so happy that so many family members were able to attend!
We had a great visit with everyone. And the star of the show was so sweet!
Here are some of the things James said in the blessing:
He will be known on the records of the church as Henry James Schmitt. He was blessed to be an influence for good in his family and to others. That his love would radiate to others, that he will inspire others. He was blessed that he would have a testimony of the Gospel, to be able to strengthen others in our Savior's church. He was blessed with health that he may actively serve others. Also that he may show his parents what he needs so that we may be able to raise him well.
It was a wonderful blessing and a wonderful day!

Lily has been finding more and more ways to "play" with Henry. I'm sure she will be so happy when he can respond and play with her.
A few days ago, I came into the room and Lily was holding her toy phone up to Henry's ear and I heard her say "Oh, hi daddy!"
I came into the kitchen yesterday morning and she had shared her (naked) Barbies with brother. I told her that was very sweet to share.
Which I guess is why I found THIS when I went into my bedroom to go to bed last night...Ha!
One Sunday in Primary, we had a little 6 year old girl visiting with her 4 year old little brother. When they came up to have us sing the welcome song, she ran up to him and hugged him and then picked him up and spun in a circle until they fell on the floor together. Everyone in Primary was cracking up. It was so clear how much they loved each other. I had a glipse of what I hope Lily and Henry will have as they grow up and become friends.
This is super late in posting, but I wanted to say my babies are getting big and beautiful!
I love this girl. She put a CD up to her face and then sucked on her binky through the hole. She was walking around this way.
This boy gained a pound in 2 weeks! Woot! He's a great eater! Love those cheeks!

Since we had another baby, we figured we should get a few pictures of all of us together. My wonderfully talented colleague, Abby, offered to take them. We went to the same park where we had our first family shoot. It's so pretty, so we opted to go there again!
We definitely had a much harder time getting even one picture of us looking good. Lily was SO wiggly! She would not cooperate at all. So, these are the best ones and although Abby is awesome, it was a rough shoot. I'm still glad we did it. Here are a select few.
