4th of July and Utah

We just got back from Utah and had such a great time!! We were able to meet a lot of new family members. Josh our new brother in law, and max and john our new nephews. We were super busy with the wedding, the 4th, and John's baby blessing. I was also able to spend some time with my fam too! We were hoping that Nichole would have her baby while we were there and we tried everything. Jade went to her first movie and did great and slept the whole time on both plane rides. She was great the whole trip except she had a hard time breastfeeding.I think it was too loud and crazy. She is used to just us all day not going out and in Utah we were always on the go. She has been just fine now that we are back at home. She has been sleeping GREAT ever since I tried the sleep positioner which I highly recommend. One night I let her sleep in her car seat and she slept 6 hours. I think being propped up a bit helped her but I didn't want to get her in the habit of only sleeping in it. So I borrowed Carrie's sleep positioner and she slept 6.5 and then 4.5 hours and I bought the same one that next day. I can totally tell the difference and think everyone whose baby is only sleeping 3-4 hours should get one! I included a pic of her sleeping on it.

Jade is now 6 weeks and I can't believe it. Nichole had her baby yesterday and just looking at the pics make me realize how much Jade has grown. Sorry to everyone in Utah that we weren't able to see but we will be there in 3 weeks for her blessing and will have lots more time.
