Jon is back in Colorado this week. That really sucks. But moving on...
Right now there are three couches and a long chair shoved in my small apartment living room. I got the new ones as planned, but somehow old piece of crap didn't find its way out yet. It's quite the sight. Of course I think if my family came and visited me right now I would have a comfy place for every single one of them to sleep. No room for anything else of course.
I got to do baptisms for the dead for the first time as a leader on Saturday. I really had a great time. I actually really enjoyed giving them their towels, showing the new girls where to go. But we ended up being gone for 5 hours, making it the longest Jon has ever spent with his daughter alone.
When I left her she was down for her first nap of the day and she got up about an hour after I left. For the next four hours, she did not sleep a wink. Jon claimed he tried to put her down at one point but she wasn't having it. By the time I got home she was so giddy and riled up, I swear he must have slipped a little caffiene or something in her bottle. She would not take another nap. So she went to bed at 8:30 last night after having been awake for 9 hours straight. Crazy child.
My favorite part was when Jon showed me the pictures he had taken. Now when Jon is in charge of getting her dressed she usually ends up naked or in a onesie. Never EVER an outfit. Even when I set one out for her. So then Jon tells me he took Scarlet to the park and took pictures of her and my first thought was 'my goodness I hope she had clothes on." Look at this cute outfit he put her in!
I was so proud!
This week I'm in charge of our big Standards Night activity for all the young women... and I probably made it a little more complicated than I needed to. It's gonna be pretty crazy if I actually pull this thing off. More details later.
