Big Weekend

Well, the Young family had a few big happenings this past weekend.

Number 1: Jane's 4 month Dr.'s visit.
Jane is getting so big. She is just perfect (if I do say so myself). She weighs 16.5 lbs and is 25 1/4 inches tall. That puts her in the 95% for her weight and 75th for her height (we are getting shorter and stalkier). Momma loves ever roll. She had to get two shots, which made her extremely mad. I have never seen a face turn so red and fists clinch so tight when that poor nurse gave her those shots. Jane made sure to look at the woman straight in the eyes and cry to her afterwards. She is becoming quite the drama queen (just like her father). We can't do too much after shot day because Miss Priss is very needy and likes to snuggle and sleep, but we did get to take her dinner with Uncle Stewart and Aunt Ellen that night.
Funny side story. The people sitting at the table next to us saw us walk in with Jane and you could tell were not happy that a baby was about to join them for dinner. However, afterwards they made it a point to tell us how well behaved she was. Thank the Lord.

On to the second happening of the weekend but much more important: Jane was baptized on Sunday.
It was quite a morning pulling it together by myself to meet Will at church. But Jane and I managed to get there on time and for Will to meet us outside to help lug in our stuff. Jane was baptized with a little 6 month old boy named Quinn. I knew this day in church could go one of two ways. Jane could be awful and scream the entire time or she could be a perfect angel and sleep through it. Well, if you know Jane and her parents, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. She let everyone know it was her special day; the ENTIRE church service. So much that when it was time for the children to get baptized the pastor said, "Well, I think the children are ready." And by children he meant Jane because the other mother didn't bring her child into the church until right before. She didn't cry, she "talked." And she got louder during the hymns. It was priceless.
When it was time for us to go up there, Jane went second. Of course you know how this ended. Jane gagged herself and faked coughed through Quinn's entire baptism. As if the attention of everyone in the church knowing who you are wasn't enough for our angel. She couldn't let this child have his 2 minutes. And if we didn't draw enough attention, we weren't supposed to have camera's during the service. However, without our knowing it, Uncle Stewart brought his camera and captured the moment for us. (Thanks Stewart!)
So with all that being said, here are a few pics from the weekend.

We love our girl.

Dana Mitchell, the elder involved in the baptism. She is also in the choir.

She NEVER just falls asleep. She was so tired she just tuckered out right on her Daddy's shoulder.

Uncle Walt and Aunt Helen gave us a new lense for our camera. I am trying to learn how to use it. Also, still trying to learn this camera. Here are some extras.

As you can see, we LOVE our thumb.
