(in the lds faith, a baby blessing is a time for friends and family to gather around and honor the new baby while the dad says a special prayer just for the baby.)
chas did an excellent job and gave hero a beautiful, heart-felt blessing. it was a very proud moment for me, both as a wife and as a mother. it was also so great to be surrounded by our wonderful family and friends on our little girl's big day.
after church, we had a little potluck luncheon in the park with our two immediate families. the food was delicious and my sister, rosie, made the most spectacular (and yummy!) cake. (check out instagram to see it!)
the only bummer was it was crazy hot outside. like oh-hi-my-eyelids-are-sweating hot.
when we got home, we whipped off our clothes and the three of us stood directly underneath the swamp cooler blasting on high. ahhhhh...
i'm so grateful for my little family. i love these two more than anything and am so blessed to be a mommy to hero.
