The One with Jane's Baby Blessing


Monday, September 17, 2012

Today was Jane's baby blessing. She got to sleep in a bit - she had to be well-rested for her big day! I love her little grin in this pic; she knew it was her special day.
Right before church (I didn't want to risk her having a blowout or spit up episode so literally right before church) I got her all gussied up in her beautiful, one-of-a-kind dress made by my mother-in-law. I quickly sewed her a headband and then snapped on a pacifier clip. She looked like an angel :)
Everyone else walked to church but we drove A) because it's so gosh dern hot and B) driving is the best option for getting two kiddos to church quickly. 
Jane was blessed after the invocation. I was holding Fox and pointed out Daddy up at the front so of course Fox tried to wiggle out of my arms to go be with Chris and when I wouldn't let him go he had a tantrum and started screaming in the middle (or rather, the beginning, middle, and end) of the short'n'sweet prayer. Luckily my mom and aunt came to the rescue and hurried him out. Unluckily I only got to hear "in the name of Jesus Christ, amen." Luckily my MIL took notes of the blessing and Chris remembers it so I'll be able to hear it one way or another. Silly Fox.

After Sacrament we went outside to take pics, once again, thank you Erica :) Hopefully we won't be needing your services again while living here!
I'm a big fan of comparing photos, so here is the one from Fox's baby blessing
Nick, Jay, Margi, Chris, Paige, Tom #1, Fox, Carolyn, Tom #2, Allie, Natalie, Cat, John Jr., and Daniel.

Jane's baby blessing:
Cat, Natalie, Daniel, John Jr., Tom #1, Carolyn, Paige, Jane, Chris, Fox, Margi, Tom #2, Jay, and Haylie.
Replace Nick and Allie with Haylie and Jane and other than that everyone else is the same!

My sweet little Jane.
Me 'n my girly girl.
Families are forever.
Thank you soooo much to my parents, Chris's parents, Jay and Haylie, and the John Jr. family for making the long trek down here to be present for Jane's special day! Layout commemorating the day coming soon :)
