Baby Whisperer

Since moving here to Oregon I have met some wonderful friends. One of which is named Julie. She is also known as the 'baby whisperer.' I was skeptical at first, but she has far exceeded my expectations. When Grace was a baby, I could never get her to take a binky. I thought Clark was going to be just like his older sister. Every time I tried to give him one, he would kind of chew on it, then would start to gag. But just when I felt I no longer wanted to be a human pacifier, Julie asked if she could take Clark for an hour to see if she could get him to take it for her. I was overjoyed when I returned to see my son content, just sucking away! To me, this was and still is a complete miracle. I love you Julie!

Hey Melissa! This is Kristi your long lost friend from the BYU ward (and also Jody Genessy's cousin!). Congratulations on the new addition, we were a month ahead of you---our son was born on September 18th. How fun that you are living in Oregon! We did an internship there with Intel and loved it! Where are you living? Congrats again and Grace is cute as ever!
