Sunday was good. We had our baby's blessing along with his cousin Susan's baby blessing. Both blessing were beautiful, urging the babies to learn and defend the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as love your family. Seth's blessing was given to him by his daddy. Jer did an amazing job. He urged Seth to be courageous and discerning like his uncle and his ancestor, John Alden. Unfortunately, John and Diane's family had to go right after sacrament meeting... We missed them and I personally missed having the chance to take a picture of the cute little cousins in their blessing outfits.
I am so blessed to have family that loves and surrounds us on occasions like these. I think of a friend of mine that's an only child, whose mom died and doesn't have a close relationship with her dad. Holidays are hard for her. I look forward to sharing Holidays with our new baby. I look forward to him and our other kids getting to know their cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc... as we celebrate life together. Blessings, showers, farewells, welcome homes, graduations... each one a precious time that we have together.
This baby outfit was bought by my grandma, Elaine Ellis, for my brother, Seth's, baby blessing. Thanks for letting us use it Sethie!
These girls love their baby.
